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.

Logging and Debugging API Overhaul (GSoC 2010)

Summary

Redesigning NTP's logging/debugging system will improve ntpd's logging and diagnostic capabilities. It will also give better control over logging/debugging.

A consistent logging interface for NTP and its projects would simplify its codebase and would make it more consistent. It also would benefit other NTP projects like SNTP by giving it acesss to its logging/debugging interface.

All in all it would benefit both developers and users by unifying logging/debugging interfaces under a improved system.

A big part of this project besides coding is designing and planning the improved logging/debugging system as well as coordinating the work necessary to implement these changes.
