Endpoint Groups

Minor revisions made. Needs review to upstream (#link https://review.openstack.org/#/c/212692/). Corresponding neutron-client changes out for review ((#link https://review.openstack.org/#/c/219455/).

Multiple Local Subnets

Starting implementation, in parallel with endpoint groups reviews. Will support both existing API and new API.

DevRef: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/191944

VPN Functional Tests for Neutron Commits

Jobs are correctly running in experimental queue for neutron commits, and code is upstreamed (#link https://review.openstack.org/#/c/203201). Committed change to make jobs run under check queue (#link https://review.openstack.org/#/c/223049). Jobs are gate-neutron-vpnaas-dsvm-functional and gate-neutron-vpnaas-dsvm-functional-sswan.

Open Discussion

Bucket List

Here are some ideas for tasks that need to be done (feel free to work on them - put your name by any you choose)...

  • Could use python34 support added to neutron-vpnaas (partially completed). Several tests are being disabled.
  • Grenade work to support Advanced Services, so that plugin can be activated.
  • Validation that peer IP for VPN connection is of same version as router's GW I/F.
  • User documentation for Networking Guide. (including limitations/restrictions)
  • API documentation for endpoint groups and multiple local subnets.
  • Coverage, especially in database and device driver modules, is lacking.
  • Need more functional tests for OpenSwan device driver (and StrongSwan driver). Identify what's needed (MTU check, connection delete, admin up/down?, non-default configs [API or unit?], IPv6).
  • Refactor duplication out of device driver code (OpenSwan, StrongSwan, Cisco, Vyatta)
  • The OpenSwan class should be separated from the ABC definition, and placed into a new module.
  • Remove /n from execute method in utils.py so that duplicate code can be removed in VPN drivers.
  • Documentation on how to use StrongSwan
  • Developer Reference Documentation needed.
  • Documentation on the differences between StrongSwan and OpenSwan (and any limitations/restrictions of each - e.g. mixing IPv4/v6)
  • StrongSwan execute_with_mount() to allow configurable rootwrap config file.
  • Support for BGP/MPLS VPN? DM VPN? OpenVPN (road-warrior)? Can/should they be integrated into VPNaaS?
  • Certificate support for IPSec (Barbican - see what LBaaS did to use certificate). - RFE created.
  • There is interest by some on other VPN types (e.g. something similar to AWS DirectConnect and Azure ExpressRoute).
  • Should enhance/add unit test cases for:
    • Checking various sync() cases: router w/o VPN running on it any more; router with VPN running, but no longer a service configured; process running VPN, but no longer VPN configured.
    • Verification of contents of configuration files created for StrongSwan and OpenSwan.
    • Verification of reported status for various cases: connections (active, down, pending create), service (created, deleted, admin down).
