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-4.2.8p14 was released on 03 March 2020. It addresses 2 medium-severity security issues in ntpd, and provides 47 non-security bugfixes and 4 other improvements 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.

Date Task Description % Done
100426   Accepted student proposals announced on the Google Summer of Code 2010 site. DONE
25Apr - 24May ntp.keys(5) I will be starting from documenting ntp.keys(5) command. i have allocated full month for documenting ntp.keys(5)  
24May - 06Jun ntp.conf(5) This command include large amount of information. Threfore i have allocated 4 weeks to work on this command.  
06Jun - 20Jun ntp.conf(5) Same process as above  
20Jun - 04Jul ntprc() This command does not have FreeBSD reference. therefore i would have to work with Harlan Stenn to get the data for definition file. This is the first step for this command  
04Jul - 16Jul sntp submit code for mid evaluation , submit status report for mid evaluation  
16Jul - 30Jul tickadj this command does not have FreeBSD reference. therefore i would have to work with Harlan Stenn to get the data for definition file. This is the first step for this command  
30Jul - 16Aug timetrim this command does not have FreeBSD reference. therefore i would have to work with Harlan Stenn to get the data for definition file. This is the first step for this command  

Discussion and Comments

I'm not particularly worried about tickadj and timetrim. Depending on how things go, we may want to use the time at the end of this effort to make sure that AutoGen contains the parts of this project that it needs, hopefully minimizing the amount of support files that we need to provide to AutoGen to handle the documentation.

Kapila, we'll also want to go over the list in GNUAutoGenConversion to make sure we got everything.
