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.
NTP not using PPS *I am using Kernel :2.6.23rc2 PPS patch: ntp -pps-2.6.23rc2.diff NTP version: ntp-4.2.4P4

I have enabled PPS support as a module.Under this I have selected PPS debugging message,UART serial support.

I am using GPS Receiver TRIMBLE ACE 3 . PPS from GPS receiver is fed to MAX232 and output of MAX232 is fed to DCD pin of serial port.The serial port I have used is ttys3.

The relevant part of my ntp.conf is

enable stats

statsdir /var/log

statics loopstats

logconfig = all server mode 138 prefer iburst fudge refid TSIP flag3 1 flag2 0 time1 0.042


fudge stratum 10

These are the results after about half an hour:

ntpq -p

remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset jitter xGENERIC(3) .TSIP. 0 1 39 64 377 0.000 -35.67 35.234

ntp_gettime() returns code 0 (OK) time CAC57B62 .7EC56000,SUN, Oct 21 2007 12:56:43.265, (.265534), maximum error 1061671us, estimated error 2us ntp_adjtime() returns code 0 (OK) modes 0x0 (), offset 0.000 us, frequency -0.000 ppm, interval 1 s, maximum error 1121063 us, estimated error 2 us, status 0x1 (PLL), time constant 6, precision 1.000 us, tolerance 512 ppm,

Information for generic driver is coming in log file.But no info regarding PPS is coming in log file.

But if I am runing the ppstest file I can see PPS data.

What could be the possible reason for PPS not being used?

Please feel free to ask if any more details is required...
