Revision as of 17:39, 2 March 2015 by Paul Michali (talk | contribs) (Announcements)


Since there has been very limited participation over the past several weeks, a questionnaire was sent to the mailing list last Tuesday (2/24) to see if the format (periodic/on-demand) and/or date/time should be changed for these meetings. No one replied, so the default action will apply, which is to have VPNaaS discussions as an on-demand topic during Neutron meetings.

Logs and Minutes

Meetings, with their notes and logs, will be found under http://eavesdrop.openstack.org/meetings/vpnaas/


Updated February 23rd, 2015


  • DevStack support for StrongSwan is now upstreamed.
  • VPN agent refactoring has started to eliminate dependency on L3 agent.
  • New functional job being created for StrongSwan (out for review) - will run in experimental mode.
  • Directory structure change for functional test area (out for review).

Functional Testing

All commits will need to pass dsvm-neutron-vpnaas-dsvm-functional test results. Working on a non-voting (initially)StrongSwan functional test.

Will likely need to split functional tests out of StrongSwan commit, so it can move forward in a timely manner.

Scenario Testing

After talking to QA team, we need to modify the scenario tests to run in the VPN repo, without relying on Tempest framework. There is a tempest-lib, but it is very minimal currently (and utis for Neutron resources won't be for a while). Nikolay is proceeding with modifications to his scenario test (https://review.openstack.org/#/c/140072/8). Plan is to use DHCP namespace to test connectivity of IPSec connection.


Current bugs: VPNaaS bugs

We need to get StrongSwan commit tested out and reviewed, so please help out (https://review.openstack.org/144391)

Bring up any other bugs of interest.

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)...

  • The 'docs' target needs to be implemented for our repo (doc file was removed from Neutron).
  • Coverage, especially in database modules, is lacking.
  • Need functional tests for OpenSwan device driver
  • 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.
