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.
REFACTOR See ConfiguringSHMRefclocksDev for discussion of this topic.

Under LINUX there is the gpsd service which provides SHM services.

In ntp.conf include lines:-

# ... and use gpsd daemon for time sync
server minpoll 4 maxpoll 4
fudge time1 -0.245 refid GPS stratum 15
server minpoll 4 maxpoll 4 prefer
fudge refid GPS1

gpsd then provides the following (from ntpq):-

remote      refid     st   t   when   poll   reach   delay   offset   jitter
=====      ===     ===   =   ====   ===   =====   ====   =====   ======
LOCAL(0)  .LOCL.     13   l   21   64   377   0   0   0.002
=-SHM(0)  .GPS.     15   l   9   16   377   0   36.775   12.287
*SHM(1)      .GPS1.       0   l   6   16   377   0   0.032   0.003


SHM(0) is the time from NEMA string (to establish second) this can deviate a lot, recommend you add another server (Not shown).

SHM(1) is the PPS from GPS
