Description Peter Vrabec 2007-10-23 06:21:18 EDT
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 16:56:07 EDT
What cryptographic operations does NTP use?
Comment 2 Miroslav Lichvar 2008-08-28 07:26:10 EDT
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 10:43:32 EDT
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.
