Description Peter Vrabec 2007-10-23 10:21:18 UTC
ntp should be ported to use NSS library for cryptography.
See the tracking bug for details and links on how it could be done.

Comment 1 Bob Lord 2008-08-27 20:56:07 UTC
What cryptographic operations does NTP use?

Comment 2 Miroslav Lichvar 2008-08-28 11:26:10 UTC
From openssl are used functions dealing with certificates, encrypting, decrypting, signing and verification.

An overview of NTP cryptography is here:

Comment 3 Miroslav Lichvar 2014-08-25 14:43:32 UTC
I think it's time to close this bug, it looks like the crypto consolidation effort has stopped long time ago and porting ntpd to NSS won't be easy.
