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.

Discussion of ConfiguringAutokey

ConfiguringAutokey was created to fill a need for an accurate step-by-step guide for setting up NTP Authentication using Autokey.

The information ipresented in ConfiguringAutokey was based on actual hands on testing of NTP Authentication after careful review of the Official NTP Authentication Documentation. This guide is not merely a compilation of existing information.

The information in ConfiguringAutokey was tested using various release versions of the NTP Reference Implementation, from both the stable and development tracks, on a variety of Linux and FreeBSD sytems using different kernel versions.
