Subject Faking the times in the WS-Security header
Date Fri, 19 Apr 2013 13:23:25 GMT
I am using Rampart to communicate with an ONVIF compliant IP camera. The 
camera uses WS-Security for any calls that make changes in the camera. 
The problem is that, for the first time I connect to the camera, the 
camera's date/time can be anything and is often wrong. This causes all 
WS-Security calls to fail. According to the ONVIF specification the 
procedure is to:

1) Connect to the camera and read its data/time
2) Use this date/time in the call to set the camera's date/time
3) Then use the current date/time for all further calls to the camera.

Is there anyway to fake the date/time in the WS-Security headers?

Thanks, David
