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-4.2.8p15 was released on 23 June 2020. It addresses 1 medium-severity security issue in ntpd, and provides 13 non-security bugfixes over 4.2.8p13.
Are you using Autokey in production? If so, please contact Harlan - he's got some questions for you.
Tagging categories for configuration options
One part of my GSoC
project this year is to enable tagging of configuration options so they can be tagged to carry additional information for example by what they've been set, e.g. by a configuration file or via ntpq.
In order to make it as useable as possible, please comment on what tag/category you'd like to have.
