I've only seen messages about getting ntp information over a network (so
far), and I'm not familiar with crypto/entropy gathering/ntp, so forgive
me if I ask a stupid question, but does everyone also think about those
systems which have a more or less precise clock attached (e.g. GPS or
atomic clocks which sync the system clock via nptd)? And what are the
numbers for this solution (for those people which are interested in
numbers to be their own judge)?
