NAME

ntp.keys - NTP symmetric key file format

 

NAME

ntp.keys - NTP symmetric key file format configuration file The key is 1 to 16 printable characters terminated by an EOL, whitespace, or a # (which is the "start of comment" character).




The key is a hex-encoded ASCII string of 40 characters, which is truncated as necessary.

Note that the keys used by the ntpq(8) and ntpdc(8) programs are checked against passwords requested by the programs and entered by hand, so it is generally appropriate to specify these keys in ASCII format.
