OpenAFS Newsletter, Issue 7, November 2009

Welcome to the seventh issue of the OpenAFS newsletter. This newsletter summarizes what is happening in the OpenAFS community.

As always, volunteers, patches, bug reports, or any other type of help is greatly appreciated.

Feedback on this newsletter is welcome. The goal is to summarize the various development efforts and news of OpenAFS for the community. Please let Jason Edgecombe <jason@rampaginggeek.com> know what you would like to see out of this newsletter. Any news about AFS-related projects is welcome and may be submitted to Jason for inclusion in the next newsletter.

The current and past issues of this newsletter are available at http://www.openafs.org/newsletter/

In reply to Derrick's request for a pony, here it is: "u". Unfortunately, a Nethack pony is all that we have the budget for. ;)

General OpenAFS Progress

OpenAFS 1.5.66 was released on October 24. Key highlights include support for Windows 7 and Server 2008R2.

October's discussion of the AFS lock icon was concluded. The OpenAFS provider in Network Identity Manager now includes a lock icon which shows OpenAFS status and token status similar to the old AFScrds program. The network mount functionality in AFScreds is now shipped disabled by default.

Simon Wilkinson and Derrick Brashear put out a call for code reviewers. We need people to review the pending changes in Gerrit. Everyone is welcome to review some code. It can help those who aren't familiar with the code to become more familiar with it. To get started in reviewing, go to http://gerrit.openafs.org and login using your OpenID credentials. Download the patch and apply it to the latest git tree, then compile it and test it. Report your results with each patch in Gerrit. If you need help getting started, ask on the openafs-devel list, the #openafs IRC channel or the Jabber chat room.

Mike Meffie proposed a finer set of access controls to prevent users with admin rights on a folder from giving overly permissive access to other users or groups. This is part of a effort to find a safer way to deal with public facing AFS sites. We want to encourage people to chime in with their ideas and reach a general census so we can move forward and improve AFS.

Events

Annual Best Practices Workshop

Plans are already underway for the seventh Workshop, to be held May 24-28, 2010, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We hope to see you there.

European AFS Conference

The date for the 3rd European AFS & Kerberos Conference has been set. The conference will take place in Pilsen, Czech Republic, from September 13 to September 15, 2010. More details are forthcoming and will be posted at http://afs2010.civ.zcu.cz.

Projects

AFS Protocol Standardization

Two more proposals came out of the Edinburg AFS Hackathon, but haven't been discussed much on the afs-standardization list:

Mike Meffie reformatted Nickolai Zeldovich's draft Rx protocol specification (from 2002) as an Internet Draft and, with his permission, is sharing it.

The reformatted document is available via http and AFS at:

http://openafs.sinenomine.net/~mmeffie/rfc/draft-zeldovich-rx-spec-00.html

/afs/sinenomine.net/user/mmeffie/public/rfc/draft-zeldovich-rx-spec-00.html

[Ed.: I give my thanks to Simon Wilkinson for providing an excellent summary of the current status of the proposals. Most of this section was taken from one of Simon's emails.]

Discussion on these proposals is welcome and should be done on the AFS3-standardization list at http://michigan-openafs-lists.central.org/mailman/listinfo/afs3-standardization

AFS Callback Extensions

http://www.ietf.org/id/draft-benjamin-extendedcallbackinfo-00.txt

Status: Active

We need to decide whether we're going to wait for the RPC refresh changes before publishing extended callbacks. My belief is that that's the only factor currently delaying this document. The question here, essentially, is whether anyone would deploy extended callbacks before deploying updated RPCs. To date, nobody has said they would do so.

--Simon Wilkinson

DNS SRV Resource Records for AFS

http://www.ietf.org/id/draft-allbery-afs-srv-records-01.txt

Status: Active

I think this is pretty much done from our perspective. In this draft's case, I think it's perfectly fair to get it published through the IETF, as an individual submission, given it updates a protocol element (AFSDB records) that are already specified in an RFC.

We have two problems that are delaying this, and other initiatives:

The first is that there has been no movement since last year on establishing a clearer footing for the work done on this [afs3-standardization] list. The draft I published suggests that the g.c.o registrars bootstrap the process, but so far they haven't had sufficient time to do so. At some point, if they remain unable to get it off the ground, we're going to have to come up with another mechanism.

There is also a general issue about how to publish the wider set of AFS protocol documents - the current proposal is that they go through the independent submission stream, and eventually appear as RFCs. To date, I don't think we've approached anyone with regards to this plan, and the whole RFC publishing processing is going through significant change at present. We need to resolve this before things like extended callbacks can move forwards.

--Simon Wilkinson

I've received no responses since version -01 of the draft, so I was about to ask about what the next step is. Should I make a last call for comments here and then approach the IESG about publication?

Demand-Attach FileServer (DAFS)

Project Contacts:

A fix for 124484 (volserver salvages) is in gerrit 787 and is undergoing review. We believe this to be the last 'critical' DAFS issue, so we would encourage that anyone with an interest in using DAFS test DAFS with that fix. There are still other (mostly performance-related) issues we are continuing to work on, but we know of no other critical DAFS-specific problems.

--Andrew

Mac OS X OpenAFS Preference Pane

Project Contact:

The only update is the automatic link creation on the Desktop for custom paths. Now, I'm trying to see if I can use FUSE to make these paths mountable as real volumes.

--Claudio

Better Documentation

Project Contacts:

Several man page updates have gone into the tree since last month, but I don't think there's been any significant progress on the larger documents.

One useful documentation project that we could ask for volunteers to work on is writing man pages for the new binaries that were added as part of the demand-attach file server work.

--Russ

Kerberos v5 and multiple encryption types

Project Contacts:

Simon and I discussed some of the issues yesterday via XMPP. We agree there are lots of things Marcus and I can do, but a lot of things become easier and more useful to do when upstream is ready start thinking about rxk5 in detail. Simon pointed out that once 1.6 branches, rxk5 patches can flow onto head--and that means that folks can start reviewing changes for potential merge. Even if it takes a while to get through them, that's the most efficient process to be on, and the sooner we can start it, the more productive we can be.

S3 Front-end for AFS

Project Contacts:

Small description of S3AFS:

First of all, Amazon S3 provides a simple web services interface that can be used to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web.

S3AFS is a web application, it provides a local implementation of the S3 service. This can be useful if you want to make use of the Amazon S3 web service interface but host the storage on your own OpenAFS cell. The first step of the project is mapping the OpenAFS resources to a S3 client, then you can read your file and directory as a key of a S3 bucket. The second step is to use OpenAFS as an S3 backend.

We have a basic implementation, without authentication and authz, we now start to understand how to put Authentication (SetAG) in the java multi thread env.

Progress:

We have a proof of concept, which was presented at the Workshop in Rome, and we have finished the design and started coding in Java for the production release. We hope to release a preview in December without ACL handling. We have to fix some compilation problems in the Java lib in the 1.5.x, which has not been submitted yet.

Active Directory Backend for Ptserver

Project Contacts:

Ptserver-Ng is a custom implementation of the ptserver with an Active Directory backend instead of Ubik db. Today, more institutions ask to me a more generic interface in special way for ldap connection. The new project is focused on a plugin architecture for a multi-backend implementation. The first step is to create a more generic database API (ptdb) and move all the ubik code into this new infrastructure. Second step is to create a proxy read/write backend and more generic AD (read only) backend.

Status : interface definition (ptdb api)

We have finished the interface definition, we start to move the existing ubik code, no release date are available.

Virtual Machine Images

Project Contact:

I have created a set of virtual machines. In this way, everyone can try and test OpenAFS without installing it.

You can find the VM at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/s3afs/files/

--Fabrizio

Pthreaded Ubik

Project Contact:

Steven has changed employers and email addresses.

There are no updates to the Pthreaded Ubik project. It will not appear in future newsletters unless there is an update.

Userspace cache manager

Project Contact:

I'm in the middle of adding support for ACL and mountpoint manipulation (and in general, making pioctl emulation work). Once that is working to a certain degree, I should be able to work on getting this suitable for merging in mainline. If anyone wants to use this before then, just ask.

I'd also like to note that apparently it may be possible to emulate PAGs in linux userspace. So, a fully-featured FUSE client is not as impossible as I once thought, and may someday exist.
