We want to thank the members of the Cisco ASIG team for finding and reporting these issues.

We especially want to thank all of our volunteers who have contributed bug fixes and improvements over the years and continue to do so. You can learn about them from our bug database and ChangeLog file.

Network Time Foundation is continually looking for ways to improve the NTP code. We have announced the Network Time Security project (NTS), and will soon be announcing the first production release of the NTP “leaf node” client from the Ntimed Project.

We appreciate organizations reporting their discoveries to us. We continue to look for funding to hire full time developers. We’ve put together some projects for funding and if you are interested in helping please contact us at info@nwtime.org or through our contact page.
