timer in socket programming

Hello ,
I have a server listening on incoming client connections. Once the client establishes SSL connection with the server , the server waits on read() from the client. Only Client can disconnect the connection. I want to have a timer in the server program to wait for x secs after read() and then disconnect the Client connection.
Any pointers which timer library to use or how to achieve this,

the select() call can be used to test multiple file descriptors for available data to read, and comes with a timeout parameter. I think it is intended to solve the particular problem you describe.
