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.
REFACTOR See ConfiguringSHMRefclocksDev for discussion of this topic.

Under LINUX there is the gpsd service which provides SHM services.

In ntp.conf include lines:-

# ... and use gpsd daemon for time sync
server minpoll 4 maxpoll 4
fudge time1 -0.245 refid GPS stratum 15
server minpoll 4 maxpoll 4 prefer
fudge refid GPS1

gpsd then provides the following (from ntpq):-

remote      refid     st   t   when   poll   reach   delay   offset   jitter
=====      ===     ===   =   ====   ===   =====   ====   =====   ======
LOCAL(0)  .LOCL.     13   l   21   64   377   0   0   0.002
=-SHM(0)  .GPS.     15   l   9   16   377   0   36.775   12.287
*SHM(1)      .GPS1.       0   l   6   16   377   0   0.032   0.003


SHM(0) is the time from NEMA string (to establish second) this can deviate a lot, recommend you add another server (Not shown).

SHM(1) is the PPS from GPS
