Subject: RE: [cti-stix] STIX timestamps and ISO 8601:2000

Are there any generally-available tools or technologies that produce
timestamps with nanosecond precision today?  If we can't identify any I
would suggest that we support 6 digits (microseconds) and be done. 

This is a trivial but important way that we can communicate to the broader
community that we are rooted in real-world practice.

It's not inconceivable that fractional microsecond
values matter in virtualization environments.within
the same facility.  On a larger scale, the uncertainties
associated with the timestamp value will make
nanosecond precision moot.

Has anyone articulated what the overhead
differential is of an expression with a precision
of microseconds versus nanoseconds?
