OpenNTPD is a Unix system daemon implementing the Network Time Protocol to synchronize the local clock of a computer system with remote NTP servers. It is also able to act as an NTP server to NTP-compatible clients.
OpenNTPD is primarily developed by Henning Brauer as part of the OpenBSD project. Its design goals include being secure ( non-exploitable), easy to configure, and accurate enough for most purposes. Its portable version, like that of OpenSSH, is developed as a child project which adds the portability code to the OpenBSD version and releases it separately. The portable version is developed by Brent Cook. . The project developers receive some funding from the OpenBSD Foundation.
