Abstract

   The Network Time Protocol (NTP) and Network Time Security (NTS)
   documents define a number of assigned number registries, collectively
   called the NTP registries.  Some registries have wrong values, some
   registries do not follow current common practice, and some are just
   right.  For the sake of completeness, this document reviews all NTP
   and NTS registries.

1.  Introduction

   The Network Time Protocol (NTP) and Network Time Security (NTS)
   documents define a number of assigned number registries, collectively
   called the NTP registries.  Some registries have wrong values, some
   registries do not follow current common practice, and some are just
   right.  For the sake of completeness, this document reviews all NTP
   and NTS registries.

   The bulk of this document can be divided into two parts:

   *  First, each registry, its defining document, and a summary of its
      syntax is defined.

   *  Second, the revised format and entries for each registry are
      defined.

2.  Existing Registries

   This section describes the registries and the rules for them.  It is
   intended to be a short summary of the syntax and registration
   requirements for each registry.  The semantics and protocol
   processing rules for each registry -- that is, how an implementation
   acts when sending or receiving any of the fields -- is not described
   here.

2.1.  Reference ID, Kiss-o'-Death
