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.
I have a question about NTP configurations.
We are working on a data processing network (worldwide) which is supposed to be running from 2018 to 2043.
Therefore our customer wants us to simulate any fake time from 2018 to 2043.
Do you know if I can build up a fake "stratum 0" server ?
What is the clients configuration to make sure that they will synchronize immediatly to any fake dates ?
Any architecture suggestion ? No servers will be on internet , it is "private" network only.
Many thanks in advance for your help
