General OpenAFS Progress

OpenAFS version 1.5.73 was released on March 24. It was followed by three point releases to fix some issues. The latest version is The gatekeepers are asking for people to really start testing the 1.5.x releases on Unix machines to help iron out bugs before 1.6. To help people with the testing efforts, Russ Allbery has uploaded new Debian packages:

I've uploaded Debian packages of plus some additional recent patches to Debian experimental. I should be able to keep the packages up to date with subsequent 1.5.x releases going forward.

Due to the new libkopenafs1 package, the upload will have to go through NEW, so it will be a little bit before they show up in Debian.

--Russ Allbery

The instructions for contributing to OpenAFS have been revised for using Git. These instructions are in the README.git file in each release.

The growl agent for Mac OS X is included in 1.5.73, but it's not well integrated yet. Initial feedback is positive and testers are welcome. Please send any feedback ot the mailing list.

A new version of the AFS PERL API was released. For more information and downloads, go to


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.

Web site:

Register by April 14, 2010 to get the best prices. AFS and Kerberos tutorials are $100 each, the Workshop itself is $150, or register for all three for only $300.

After April 14, prices will go up, so register now and save.

A tentative schedule is available. Further details, including social events, is still forthcoming.

Hotel and travel information is also available.

We'll be looking forward to meeting you at Illinois next month!

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 The conference is being hosted by Centre for Information Technology, University of West Bohemia.

AFS Protocol Standardization

Informal drafts that haven't been uploaded to the IETF web site:

Rx Spec:

This draft is in the very early stages. Mike Meffie and Tom Keiser are the current owners of this proposal. Nickolai Zeldovich wrote the original draft. Mike and Tom have started updating the draft with Nickolai's permission. A formal specification of Rx is needed for a basis for other IETF proposals.

Discussion on these proposals is welcome and should be done on the AFS3-standardization list at

PTS Alternate Authentication

Status: Active - Third call for review

Last Update: November 18, 2009

Expires: May 22, 2010

AFS Callback Extensions

Status: Active - Waiting on RPC refresh

This proposal will be rewritten with references to the RPC time refresh.

Last update: September 23, 2009

Expires: March 23, 2010

DNS SRV Resource Records for AFS

Status: Submitted to IETF

Still in the RFC Editor queue, waiting for them to have a chance to work on it.



Status: Active

Rxgk is a security layer for AFS which will support strong encryption and authentication through Kerberos v5, GSI and any other GSSAPI security mechanism.

Changes which are considered suitable for the 1.5.x series are in git - look for changes with author A development tree, which will be frequently rebased, is at

AFS3 ACL Rights

Status: Second draft

Last update: Jan 13, 2010

See the Per-File ACLs section for more info.

Rx Security Object Providing Cleartext Peer Identity Assertions

Status: Second draft

Last Update: February 1, 2010

The Rx clear security class will improve on the rxnull security object by eliminating certain race conditions related to IPv4 address changes. A -02 revision of this internet draft will be forthcoming in the next few days, which will update the introduction and security considerations sections of the memo. Everyone is invited to review this document, and comments should be sent to the mailing list.

AFSVol Tag-Length-Value Remote Procedure Call Extensions

Status: Second Draft

Last Update: April 6, 2010

As new forms of metadata are added to AFS volumes, we are running into limitations with the wire volume metadata structures used by the volume server. This internet draft aims to standardize a tag-length-value (TLV) encoding for arbitrary AFS volume metadata. A new version of this draft was released on April 6th, 2010. Everyone is invited to review and comment on this document. Comments should be sent to the mailing list.



Demand-Attach FileServer (DAFS)

Project Contacts:

Gerrit 1406 (per-volume locks) has been merged along with the related changes, and thus we can now salvage at the same time as volume operations as well as other salvages. Gerrit 1092 is unfortunately still not merged; we encourage additional review from anyone who can. Current DAFS development involves adding background I/O threads to the salvager code, and later making demand-salvages spawn as threads instead of processes. Code for that should be available shortly.


Better Documentation

Project Contacts:

Davor Ocelic is working on writing man pages for the new demand-attach binaries that aren't yet documented. The man page for state_analyzer has been committed.

Pthreaded Ubik

Project Contact:

Gerrit 1546 (add locks for addresses and cheader) has been submitted for review, and with that, we now believe the vlserver to be thread-safe. Since the vlserver thread-safety issues were the only known pthreaded ubik issues, after 1546 we are aware of no further issues with pthreaded ubik.


We're still discussing what solution to use in gerrit 1546 (add locks for the vldb ubik cache). Additional problems affecting pthreaded ubik were found and fixed in gerrit 1680 (kill afs_inet_ntoa) and 1681 (correct use of flags_cond and version_cond).


This project will likely be dropped as a separate project in a couple of issues of the newsletter when this project is fully merged into the mainline OpenAFS code.

Kerberos v5 and multiple encryption types

Project Contacts:

I was hoping to have some time this week - got distracted by other matters. I do have one change of interest: the "tokens expired" message which formerly looked like this:

 Feb 22 10:23:08 lancashire kernel: afs: Tokens for user of AFS id 555 for cell expired now

(where 555 was a fixed constant because the cache manager doesn't know what viceid the user has), now looks like this:

 Apr 3 04:55:37 lancashire kernel: afs: Tokens for mdw@CATS.UMICH.EDU for cell expired now

I think that's an improvement.

Heimdal has some annoying weirdness with key types and checksums. In 1.3.1 (at least,) the verify checksum logic insists only one checksum algorithm is acceptable per key type. The standards documents do not forbid this interpetation, but don't exactly require it. Sorting out acceptable checksum algorithms between various kerberos distributions continues to be a problem.

I'm hoping to do a code drop soon. It will probably be a complete copy of source not just diffs. I was overly aggressive about fixing tabs and now have to "undo" some fixes to patches. Blech.


Per-File ACLs

Project Contacts:

Current status:

Mac OS X OpenAFS Preference Pane

Project Contact:

The preference pane has been updated to allow the renewal of Kerberos tickets. The GUI and afs backgrounder were updated to accomodate this change.


*BSD Support

Project Contacts:

Commit 028240329c09b6a311cb85736f41d75f7ee7a01f deals with some updated VFS calls in FreeBSD.

Userspace cache manager

Project Contact:

I've finally managed to find time to work on this again, resulting in gerrit changes 1714-1726 which give a FUSE OpenAFS/libuafs client. Functionality improvements over previous libuafs code include fixed support for AFSDB and fakestat. Support will be forthcoming for some pioctl operations (lsmount, rmmount, getacl, setacl, checkservers) and perl SWIG bindings.

I will be presenting at AFSBPW 2010 about libuafs, on its potential uses and how to use it.


S3 Front-end for AFS

Project Contacts:

We have a generic implementation in alpha test, without authentication and specific AFS ACL support. We hope to release a first public beta at the end of the April ( without authentication).


Virtual Machine Images

Project Contact:

The Virtual Machine Images are updated, now the operating system is Centos 5.4 with openafs 1.4.12, in the new distribution is also present the AFS perl API with example scripts. If you want, you can downgrade to openafs 1.4.11 with a simple snapshot rollback. The images are in vmware format only, you can download from:


Google Summer of Code 2010

Google will be doing their Summer of Code again in 2010. We're proud to announce that for the third year, OpenAFS will be participating as a mentoring organization.


Accepted student proposals will be announced on April 26.
