authspeed - determine authentication delays


Synopsis

authspeed [ -cdm ] [ -n loops ] auth.samplekeys

Description

This program encrypts a test file and determines the authentication delay to use in the NTP configuration file. There are two choices of encryption algorithm, DES Cipher-Block-Chaining (DES-CBC) and Message Digest 5 (MD5).

Options

-c
Select total cost of encryption. Default is value to use in the authdelay configuration command.

-d
Enable debug output. Default is no debug output.

-m
Enable MD5 algorithm. Default is DES-CBC algorithm.

-n loops
Specify the number of program loops. Default is 20,000.
