I know there has been interest previously in hearing about NTP-sec. I
guess the question isn't "if" but "when".

    Subject: [PLUG] Possible talk on NTPsec?

    It's been many years since I gave a PLUG talk. Now I have a topic I'd
    like to raise awareness of.

    I've spent the last 18 months leading a project called NTPsec, a
    massive cleanup and refactoring of the Internet time-service daemon
    code intended among other things to seriously improve security; the
    reference implementation we forked from is notoriously vulnerable to use
    as a DDoS amplifier.

    The story of NTPsec has some useful lessons about writing
    low-defect-rate code, reduction of attack surface as a security
    strategy, and the underappreciated impact of Unix API standardization.

    The project is at https://www.ntpsec.org/
