NTP users are strongly urged to take immediate action to ensure that their NTP daemons are not susceptible to being used in distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. Please also take this opportunity to defeat denial-of-service attacks by implementing Ingress and Egress filtering through BCP38.

ntp-4.2.8p10 was released on 21 March 2017. It addresses 6 medium- and 5 low-severity security issues, 4 informational security topics, 15 bugfixes, and contains other improvements over 4.2.8p9.

Please see the NTP Security Notice for vulnerability and mitigation details.

Are you using Autokey in production? If so, please contact Harlan - he's got some questions for you.

Suggested TODO list

Group 1 (Protocol issues?)

  • SNTP RFC cleanup (Obsolete - now part of the NTPv4 spec)
  • NTP4 RFC
  • What year? (I think this is the "ntpd requires the year to be correct to within 34 years")
  • std "command and control"

Group 2 (website things?)

  • Searchable Docs
  • sample configs

Group 3 (code issues?)

  • new conf file format
  • rewrite
  • bad cli/ui
    • autogen may fix this
  • man pages
    • autogen may fix this

ISC Intern ideas

  • Get the Rackable's special serial console port working and cabled
    • switch serial consoles to that port
    • free up the existing/stock serial port for use by refclocks
  • Move the big serial card from psp-fb2 to a new machine (another rackable?) that is reachable even if psp0 is down
  • Create a Yost DB9P/DCE connector for the empty RS-232 port on RHS of the top row of 4 ports on the back of the Meinberg, then build a silver-satin cable for it (with a twist) and plug that in to the (Yost) DB9/DTE connector on the back of psp-fb2, the serial port labeled #4 (I think - on the set of 4 serial ports back there, the bottom-right goes to the COM0 port of the Meinberg and the top-left goes to the RIPE-NCC card just to the left. The bottom-left serial port of the set of 4 is unused).
  • RMA the Netgear GS108(?) switch, labeled "ILOM/IPMI". It should be about waist height on top of a cardboard box on the NTP PSP rack.
