Over the past few months, Bernard Spil has been hard at work importing OpenNTPd 6.0p1 in HardenedBSD base. Starting with 12-CURRENT, HardenedBSD will ship with OpenNTPd by default. Just like with LibreSSL in base, HardenedBSD users have a choice when building world of which NTP daemon to use. Users who want to use the legacy NTPd can set
src.conf(5). Bernard will continue maintaining LibreSSL and OpenNTPd in HardenedBSD base.
Users who are upgrading from an existing 12-CURRENT system from source and who use the legacy NTP daemon in base will need to perform the following actions:
- Install new world
A binary update will be published within the next 24 hours that contains OpenNTPd in base. Those who use
hbsd-update will only need to perform steps 3 and 4 above.
