Updated Aug 31st, 2015
- Endpoint groups
- Local multiple subnet
- VPN Functional tests
- Endpoint-groups needs review (#link https://review.openstack.org/#/c/212692 and #link https://review.openstack.org/#/c/219455)
- Neutron client experimental job and change for re-enabling VPN tests need review (#link https://review.openstack.org/#/c/209887 and https://review.openstack.org/#/c/214587)
- Coverage fix (#link https://review.openstack.org/#/c/217847) needs review
Completed implementation out for review (#link https://review.openstack.org/#/c/212692/). Corresponding neutron-client changes out for review ((#link https://review.openstack.org/#/c/219455/). Please help in reviews.
Multiple Local Subnets
Will start this, once endpoint groups is upstreamed. Will handle backwards compatibility as part of implementation. Developer reverence doc has been approved ( https://review.openstack.org/#/c/191944)
VPN Functional Tests for Neutron Commits
Tried some changes to tox_install.sh to use existing Neutron change set. Had it working, but with py34 failure. Investigating.
Bugs under Review
Current bugs: VPN bugs
Current reviews: VPNaaS reviews
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).
BGP/MPLS and Edge VPN
- Edge-VPN http://git.openstack.org/cgit/stackforge/networking-edge-vpn/ with specs:
- BGP VPN https://github.com/stackforge/networking-bgpvpn with API proposal https://review.openstack.org/#/c/177740
