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.

13.1. Cisco NTP

Almost all Cisco networking devices (routers, switches, firewalls, etc.) support NTP. Some routing protocols require synchronized time, and of course accurate time is needed for security logging purposes.

The Cisco implementation is based on the reference ntpd implementation, but has been modified to:

  • run on the networking device hardware, which is typically very different from a general purpose server or workstation in the achritectural sense
  • be configurable using Cisco management tools and configuration files

See the Cisco NTP pages for more information
