NTP BOF DESCRIPTION
===================
The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is widely deployed and used in the
Internet. However, the standardization status of this protocol has
lagged in the IETF. RFC 1305 was published in March 1992 and remains
unchanged and at Draft Standard status. A good deal of work has been
produced in the NTP community over the years since March 1992, but this
work has not been reflected back into the NTP specification. A number of
topics have been raised as potential work items for an update to NTP
including support for IPv6, security considerations, automatic
configuration, and algorithm improvements.

The purpose of this BOF is to discuss an NTP WG in the IETF to update
the NTP protocol and advance the standardization status of NTP. The
current state of the protocol and the source(s) of ongoing work will be
discussed. A draft WG charter will be discussed to scope and prioritize
possible work in this area.

 NTP WG DRAFT CHARTER
====================

Description of Working Group:

The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is widely deployed and used in the
Internet. However, the standardization status of this protocol has
lagged in the IETF. RFC 1305 was published in March 1992 and remains
unchanged and at Draft Standard status. A good deal of work has been
produced in the NTP community over the years, but this work has not been
reflected back into the NTP specification. The goal of this working
group is to update the NTP protocol specification and advance the
standardization status of NTP based on the extensive work from the NTP
community.

A number of topics have been raised as potential work items for an
update to NTP including support for IPv6, security considerations,
automatic configuration, and algorithm improvements. This working group
will identify modifications and additions to the NTP protocol, document
what is in the scope of this update, and produce a series of updated NTP
specifications.

The working group will complete the following tasks:
- Produce an NTP Protocol Specification
- Produce an NTP Algorithms Specification
- Produce an NTP MIB

Goals and Milestones:

Mar 2005	Initial Draft of NTP Protocol Specification
May 2005	Initial Draft of MIB Specification
Jul 2005	Initial Draft of NTP Algorithms Specification
Mar 2006	WG Last Call NTP Protocol Specification
May 2006	WG Last Call NTP MIB Specification
Jul 2006	WG LAST Call NTP Algorithms Specification
