Technical description for port 123:

Port 123 is a network time protocol distributing coordinated universal time to synchronizes the clocks of a computer within the variable-latency and packet-switched data networks. It is a protocol providing timeline for the computer_s system.
The NTP also uses UDP port 123 as a transport layer protocol. The NTP queries servers for the contemporary time and date. It assists the protocol in database management, auditing/logging accuracy, and authentication schemes. This assistance provides information of time if an intruder attempts to attack the system. It logs the system uptime, memory statistics, and time for last known good configuration.
The port 123 varies itself as a transmission control protocol because it logs and gathers databases of time-scheduled tasks for the system. It also includes CMOS and BIOS. This transmission sends time synchronization to the registry so the system can release logs of time scheduled task such as scanning and updating of files and system.
