Question about sgx_get_trusted_time

Question about sgx_get_trusted_time

Hello,

I recently learned about the sgx_get_trusted_time function and it is useful in my work, but I have a couple questions about it that were not answered by the reference.

  1. Does the use of the sgx_get_trusted_time function (or other platform services, for that matter) require use of the internet? If so, for what reason?
  2. Under what circumstances will the time_source_nonce change?

I have a couple more questions but these are the most important for now. Any and all answers are greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

  1. Does the use of the sgx_get_trusted_time function (or other platform services, for that matter) require use of the internet? If so, for what reason? - It does not require the use of internet. 

Thank you for your response. Do you happen to know where I can find information about the second question as well?
