marmarek added a comment to T691: sdwdate sclockadj change time without spamming logs.

Actually, the "apt-daily.timer: Adding 1h 17min 24.927437s random time" message have real impact, not only noise. Each time sdwdate change time, systemd adds a random delay to those timers. which means the timer will never expire (unless that random delay will happen to be very close to 0 - i.e. below the time until sdwdate change the time, which looks to be 1s).

In theory, we could make sdwdate provide a local (default) (or optional opt-in server) NTP compatible time provider. Could be useful anyhow. -> sdwdate-server No idea how hard that would be.
And then configure NTP to connect only to that local NTP server.

/usr/sbin/ntpdate as far as I know doesn't accept a command line command to take an offset (or anything). It connects to remote servers in its default design.

HulaHoop added a comment to T815: sclockadj fingerprinting defense - set time using sclockadj the same way NTP / sntp / chrony / systemd-timesyncd is changing the clock.

The easy way: calculating the offset between local time and the onion average in timesync then using ntpdate's slew option if the offset is less than 0.5s. Otherwise you tell it to step up the time immediately so that you are accurately mimicking the default behavior. However you can force slewing all the time with -B. This way you won't need to touch kernel syscalls as ntpdate should be able to do the operation for you.

From what I understand, this code path is only relevant when timesyncd is talking directly with NTP servers and reacting to replies about deltas between local and remote times. There is no way you can call that function from the command line when using timedatectl standalone AFAICT.

Since we are interested in ntpd's default behavior (for blending in purposes) it turns out that it performs instant clock jumps once the delta difference is excessively large otherwise its slewing algorithm would take forever to adjust the time.

It doesn't seem that timedatectl supports gradual time adjustment. Our next best option is ntpd which can do so but cannot coexist with timedatectl - we can only run either but not both. According to popcon, ntpd is the mos widely used time daemon so its the natural choice.

Currently time is set using gnu date (clock jump) (initial run after current boot) or sclockadj (consecutive run) (slow clock adjustment).

I didn't notice this bug earlier but caught a reference in one of the Qubes mailing list discussions. For what it's worth, I got this to function under Qubes 3.2 by deleting the sdwdate systemd unit files. It has been a while but I think I did that in the whonix-ws template. The dispvm appears to call bootclockrandomization on every start so time correlation is avoided and I no longer encounter times off by 2+ weeks.

This does not seem to happen every time, strangely enough. It seems sdwdate should call qubes.GetRandomizedTime as a post-suspend action if I read this correctly. So I guess under some circumstances that step does not run.

Is there a way to use functions like clock_settime without
reporting to the log

There are generally three ways:

  1. Hook into the related library call and prevent the syscall

function from being called. 2. Immediately after writing to system
logs following a call to clock_settime() make the appended logs
removed. 3. During the time of calling clock_settime(), disable the
syslog at system level, after returning from the aforementioned
function re-enable logging.

adjtimex, as far as I can tell, is for tuning the clock to stay accurate. It's not directly for setting a new time. I assume it's used by ntp to speed up and slow down the clock, with more code that checks on it and stops it when it reaches the right time. Reimplementing this is beyond my skill.

After some searching, I conclude, it could be related to permissions:
https://github.com/Whonix/sdwdate/blob/master/debian/sdwdate.postinst#L28
Would perhaps be better if owned by root.
