Any mismatch in the certificates causes SSL connection error in the Google Chrome web browser. Time syncs prevents reply attacks, if someone records the packets which is sent between client and server then it decrypts as well as modify data and resend the packet stream. Decryption takes some time, a timestamp (validated on both sides) indicates that the stream is a “replay” which means, that the clients need to ensure that they talks to the right server for that the client will validate their server’s certificate well. Validation implies that verifying a lot of things in two of them involve clocks:
The server’s certificate includes the present time in their validity time range and the client is supposed to obtain the revocation status of each certificate by obtaining and validating a CRL(Certificate Revocation List) from the appropriate issuers as well.
If the client’s clock is off, then it will surely break either or both of these functionalities. The server’s certificate will be considered as long expired or not usable, which results in leads to rejection.
