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.

Unit Testing (GSoC 2010)


The goal of this project is to cover as much of the codebase as possible with unit tests. The top priority will be to implement tests for libntp, and after that move on to ntpd and ntpq. Tests will be written using Google Test.

My work is kept in a separate BitKeeper repository, located at the developer machines. The path is: ~karlsson/ntp-gsoc-testing UPDATE: the code is now in ntp-4.2.7p75.
