ntpd-rs: Folkert explains the project (video)
In this video, I explain the following things about ntpd-rs;
- What is it?
- Why are we building it in Rust?
- Is it coming to Debian and Fedora?
- What's the status?
The video was recorded on 26 September 2023, at the Rust track of the GOSIM Conference in Shanghai. GOSIM, the Global Open Source Innovation Meetup, is "a platform dedicated to nurturing the brightest grassroots open-source projects from their inception to maturity".
Ntpd-rs is an open-source implementation of the Network Time Protocol in Rust. It's part of our time synchronisation project Pendulum. You can check out the repo on Github, or read more about ntpd-rs in our various blogs.
Care to sponsor our work on time synchronisation?
The Pendulum project is building modern, full-featured implementations of the Network Time Protocol and the Precision Time Protocol. Pendulum focuses on security and robustness, and uses the Rust programming language to guarantee memory safety.
