Secure Service Configuration, conversely, has a negative impact on SSDP servers (though shutting off NTP servers will not influence users' professional or personal lives.)
And WAVE COUNTER accuracy is a milliseconds range, supported by signals from NIST Atomic Clocks, GPS Satellites and thousands of NTP servers worldwide.
Proactively scan To remediate NTP Services, he suggested to "proactively scan for and remediate abusable NTP services on the ISP and customer networks to reduce the number of abusable NTP servers. Also, check www.openntpproject.org for any abusable NTP servers that have been identified on your network or your customers' networks." Even small DDoS attack volumes are able to impact availability and disrupt the performance of servers, applications, or services that are brittle, fragile and non-scalable.
With the current batch of NTP amplification attack toolkits, malicious actors could launch 100 Gbps attacks - or larger - by leveraging just a few vulnerable NTP servers.
Although leap seconds caused by the need to compensate for the earth's rotation are extremely rare occurrences -- the last whole second adjustment would have happened in 1820 had atomic clocks and NTP servers existed -- there have in fact been 25 leap seconds for other reasons since the beginning of atomically-measured time in 1971.

This redundancy of sources guards against intentional or accidental denial of service when attempting to synchronize the unit.
