Secure time transfer is critical for many timesensitive
applications. the Global Positioning System (GPS) which
is often used for this purpose has been shown to be susceptible
to spoofing attacks. Quantum Key Distribution offers a way
to securely generate encryption keys at two locations. Through
careful use of this information it is possible to create a system that
is more resistant to spoofing attacks. In this paper we describe
our work to create a testbed which utilizes QKD and traditional
RF links. This testbed will be used for the development of more
secure and spoofing resistant time distribution protocols.
