Handle Shutdown Log Case

Severity: - Keywords:


Draft needs to handle what should be done when a log closes. Shouldn't be too difficult, we can have clients pollinate the final STH - but will the client _know_ when a log has been shut down?

It seems like there will be two cases:

  • The client knows the log is shut down or will be shut down at a specific datetime, and it can use this information to correctly pollinate the final STH.
  • The client doesn't know, the log shuts down, and it starts getting old STHs that it doesn't pollinate (believing them to be a malicious timestamp-fingerprint attack)
