Network Time Protocol daemon and utility programs


NTP, the Network Time Protocol, is used to keep computer clocks accurate by synchronizing them over the Internet or a local network, or by following an accurate hardware receiver that interprets GPS, DCF-77, or similar time signals.

This package contains the NTP daemon and utility programs. An NTP daemon needs to be running on each host that is to have its clock accuracy controlled by NTP. The same NTP daemon is also used to provide NTP service to other hosts.

This is the NTPsec version of NTP. NTPsec is a secure, hardened, and improved implementation derived from the original NTP project. NTPsec supports Network Time Security (NTS) which provides cryptographically authenticated time.

For more information about the NTP protocol and NTP server configuration and operation, install the package "ntpsec-doc".
