RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Fixed In Version: chrony-4.1-1.el8
Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
.`chrony` rebased to version 4.1 `chrony` has been updated to version 4.1. Notable bug fixes and enhancements include: * Added support for Network Time Security (NTS) authentication. For more information, see link:https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html/configuring_basic_system_settings/assembly_overview-of-network-time-security-in-chrony_configuring-basic-system-settings[Overview of Network Time Security (NTS) in chrony]. * By default, the Authenticated Network Time Protocol (NTP) sources are trusted over non-authenticated NTP sources. Add the `autselectmode ignore` argument in the `chrony.conf` file to restore the original behavior. * The support for authentication with `RIPEMD` keys - `RMD128`, `RMD160`, `RMD256`, `RMD320` is no longer available. * The support for long non-standard MACs in NTPv4 packets is no longer available. If you are using `chrony 2.x`, `non-MD5/SHA1` keys, you need to configure `chrony` with the `version 3` option.
