The problem of achieving global clock synchronization in fault-tolerant clocks by preventing so-called multiple cliques in the presence of malicious clock failures (i.e. clock failures that are perceived differently by different nonfaulty clocks) is addressed. A solution to the problem, referred to as the averaging rule, is developed, and its use is analytically justified using the notions of c
synchronisation; fault-tolerant clocks; malicious failures; clock partitions; clock-receiver triggering; phase-detector operating range; averaging rule; simulations; clocks; fault tolerant computing; logic testing; synchronisation.
