Abstract

Network Time Protocol version 4 (NTPv4) defines the optional usage of extension fields. An extension field, as defined in RFC 5905 [RFC5905], resides after the end of the NTP header, and supplies optional capabilities or information that is not conveyed in the standard NTP header. This document updates RFC 5905 [RFC5905] by clarifying some points regarding NTP extension fields and their usage with legacy Message Authentication Codes (MACs). With the adoption of this update, the authors recommend rescinding [Err3627].
