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.
The time server stratum is the position at which a time server operates in the NTP hierarchy.

A stratum 1 time is directly connected to a reference clock and is at the top of the time server hierarchy.

A stratum 2 time server receives the time from one, or more, stratum 1 time servers. Stratum 2 time servers are not significantly less accurate than stratum 1 time servers.

IDEA! Use the Inactive option of ServerStratum to mark a TimeServer as Inactive.
