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.

Discussion of JavaSntpClient

Should it be SntpClient.java instead of NtpClient.java?

There are two typos in RFC2030 which should be applied to the Java source code. They are detailled at http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata.html >> 2030 >> find errata

Jon Dobles spotted an error in encodeTimestamp. Line 394 is:

array[7] = (byte) (Math.random()*255.0);

but should be:

array[7+pointer] = (byte) (Math.random()*255.0);

Thank you Jon!

The two Java source files were updated on 28-Aug-2004 to reflect the above comments.
