AusNOG presentation about NTP


Hi all,

Just thought I’d let you know about a talk I gave at AusNOG 2017 - it was titled “The Past, Present, and Future of NTP Operations”. It had some references to the pool which are not news here, but there is a section on upcoming changes to the NTP protocol and a discussion of the outstanding RFC drafts.

Probably the most interesting upcoming change for pool operators is NTS (Network Time Security), although some of the others are certainly relevant. It’s quite a complex draft, but I hope the presentation gives a relatively gentle introduction to it.

You can get my slides from - questions and comments are welcome; much of the presentation contains clickable links to the RFC drafts under discussion.
