ntpd-rs: NTP for the modern era (video)
Time synchronization is a crucial but often overlooked component of the internet. In the talk, you can learn how time synchronization works, and how our Rust implementation of the Network Time Protocol keeps the internet in sync.
ntpd-rs is part of Pendulum, our project building modern, open-source implementations of NTP and PTP, the Precision Time Protocol. Pendulum focuses on security and robustness and uses Rust to guarantee memory safety.

We're happy to announce that the Internet Security Research Group has officially made us the maintainers of the open-source memory-safe implementation of NTP,
ntpd-rs. As such, we are now also looking for early adopters.
The implementation includes a server and client, as well as full support for Network Time Security (NTS), which brings encryption and greater integrity to time synchronization. Timing is precise and stable, as reflected by excellent performance in the NTP pool.
