OpenNTPD 6.8p1

Sortie d’OpenNTPD 6.8p1 (20201209)

Description

L’équipe OpenBSD sort une nouvelle version d’OpenNTDP, la 6.8p1.

cela fait quelques années qu’il n’y avait pas eu de sortie majeure, depuis la 6.2p3

Changelog

  • The ntpd daemon now gets and sets the clock in a secure way when booting even when a battery-backed clock is absent.

  • Improvements in DNS resolving and constraints checking, especially during startup. Unreliable NTP peers are removed from the pool and DNS resolving is repeated to add replacements.

  • Improved reliability and security of TLS constraint checking.

  • Improved logging of failure cases.

  • Prevent the case of multiple ntpds running at once by checking presence of the local control socket.

  • TLS certificates are now searched in TLS_CA_CERT_FILE.

  • The default ntpd.conf configuration file now uses 9.9.9.9 and 2620:fe::fe, in addition to google.com, when performing time constraint validation.

  • Improved handling unsynched mode when there is no replies from an NTP server, such as when there are network connectivity issues.

  • To build OpenNTPD with time constraint support, libtls from LibreSSL 3.2.2 or later is recommended.
