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.
Notes: This server is run primarily for the NTP Pool, and for my clients' networks. I discourage pointing to this server directly, but encourage using the NTP Pool (as this server is a member of that distributed NTP network). See http://www.pool.ntp.org for more info on using or joining the pool.

For the geek: "time.chipsnet.org" is actually a redundant/load-balanced pair of Slackware Linux servers (virtual) behind redundant pipes and routers. is the "VIP" WAN interface. Feel free to peruse the server stats at <http://time.chipsnet.org>.
