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.

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.

Write an SNMP client in (any acceptable programming/scripting language).

The program will use mode 6 requests (ntpq calls) to get the requested information from the local ntpd.

Sponsoring Organization: Google

Status Reports


I am interested in this project and willing to contribute.

-- VenuGopal - 29 May 2008

Great. I am not sure what scope of assistance is allowed for GSoC , but it would be definitely good to have someone who would be willing to test things during development and who is experienced with snmp and ntp.

-- HeikoGerstung - 29 May 2008

OK. Even I am not aware of the scope of assistance. But I am always willing to contribute to this project in any form.

Harlan, is there a chance that this table will automatically sort its rows based on the Delivery Date?

-- HeikoGerstung - 29 May 2008

Heiko, "mouse over" the "Delivery Date" title in the table...

-- HarlanStenn - 30 May 2008

Got it, thanks a lot :-)

-- HeikoGerstung - 30 May 2008

I unfortunately had to reschedule the mode 6 handler part to a later date. I accidentially entered the wrong date (which has been already assigned to another milestone).
