Usually packets, unless you are using the undocumented bfifo qdisc option.

It's on by default, however, we MUST decide on some 100% robust method
for getting time on boot
before the stable release.

Otherwise boxes that sit for a while before being turned on (consider
boxes shipped on a boat
from china) or those that can't get ntp at all will be locked out.

I am enjoying the flood of ideas on this topic going by on another
thread. (it would be good
to broaden the thread to relevant ntp, dnssec mailing lists)

> - I have added a BCP38 page to give an overview of that page. A question that I haven't seen addressed in the commentary on the list: Does this BCP38 implement also filter out spoofed source addresses? (I imagine it would, but the pages don't specifically say so.)

Depends on your definition of "spoof".

1) For example a babel node with a real IP inside of a natted network
would still be accepted (and natted) on egress. Can't solve everything...

2) The implementation is capable of filtering out or accepting a large
number of networks, as per bcp38. The default is basically the best
that can be done for a home/natted network.

Given that this is intended to give a cluebat, showing an example for
a provider with a real network would be useful...
