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-4.2.8p11 was released on 27 February 2018. It addresses 2 low-/medium-, 1 informational-/medium-, and 2 low-severity security issues in ntpd, 1 medium-severity security issue in ntpq, and provides over 65 non-security bugfixes and other improvements over 4.2.8p10.

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.

Donations Wanted

The NTP Public Services Project relies on contributions from OurDonors to support our operations. Please see DonatingToTheProject for more information about making a donation to support the Project.

Hardware Contributions (components and complete systems)

The list below is quite outdated, and we really have better things to do than keep it up-to-date. While I think we'll be rewriting this page soon, who knows when that will happen; if you would like to offer equipment to us, please just let us know. And cash donations are even better.
