AFS Techologies Workshop

OpenAFS Newsletter, Volume 2, Issue 2, February 2010

Welcome to the tenth 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 <> 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

General OpenAFS Progress

There were two OpenAFS releases on February 1st. One was 1.5.71, and the other was 1.4.12rc2. Due to some late breaking Linux issues with 1.5.71, using that version on Linux is discouraged. Testing of 1.4.12rc2 and future 1.5.x versions on all platforms is encouraged. Please report any bugs.

Some questions about the timeline of IPv6 came up. IPv6 is part of the RxTCP project which is planned for implementation in 2011. See for more details.


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 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:

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

Third call for review; I'm gonna ask for a last call later in the month as so far all review comment has been incorporated, unless something comes up.

--Derrick Brashear

AFS Callback Extensions

Status: Active - Needs more discussion

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

Status: Submitted to IETF

Last call will complete on February 5th, after which (probably the next weekend), I'll upload a new version of the draft. At that point, the document will go forward to the IESG for review and approval (possibly after futher changes).

I have read and responded to all of the Last Call feedback received. The changes due to the Last Call feedback are mostly minor. Various people reviewing the document would have liked to have a reference to the AFS protocol specification. I think we all agree that it would be lovely to have such a thing!

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.

Documents describing rxgk have been published and are being discussed on the afs3-standardization list. To date, no major objections have been raised in both public, and private, review.

Implementation work on rxgk has commenced - this is proceeding in a number of parallel tracks:

  1. Changes are being made to the OpenAFS code base to support multiple security layers - these changes will aid the integration of both rxgk and any other new RX security mechanism. These are being submitted to OpenAFS's gerrit as they occur, and are already being merged into the development tree - look for commits by if you wish to track these.

  2. A new cryptography framework for OpenAFS is being developed. Whilst we are keen to avoid using our own cryptography code, in some situations such as the kernel, we have no choice. So, the intention is to provide a multi-layered cryptography framework where each layer can be replaced with native routines. As a foundation, we will be using Heimdal's libcrypto library to provide a set of EVP-style functions to the rest of the OpenAFS code. We will use this in the kernel, and where a compatible library is not available in userspace. On top of this, we will provide a library offering RFC3961 style encryption functions. The current intention is to base this on Heimdal's crypto.c. rxgk will then be built on top of this library.

  3. rxgk itself is being implemented on top of this base. An initial implementation of the key negotiation mechanism is complete, and work has commenced on writing the block encryption layer.


AFS3 ACL Rights

Status: Second draft

Andrew Deason has published an IETF draft to provide a common document for discussion of the proposed new ACL rights to prevent users with admin rights on a folder from giving rights to system:anyuser.

Rx Security Object Providing Cleartext Peer Identity Assertions

Status: BCP

There are a number of anonymous RxRPC applications which require identity assertions in order to ensure that the desired peer receives and processes the procedure call. This memo defines a replacement for the rxnull security class which provides a means for mutually agreeing upon who is communicating, without incurring cryptographic overhead. It should be noted that, much like rxnull, this security object is not suitable for use in a distributed environment due to its inability to provide integrity protection.


Demand-Attach FileServer (DAFS)

Project Contacts:

Performance improvements are being worked on in gerrit 1092 (parallel preattach optimization) and gerrit 880 (volume group cache). 1092 is nearly done (just undergoing review) while 880 needs some more work on the underlying lock work (gerrit 1237). Development documentation has begun to emerge, starting with FSSYNC docs (gerrit 1236).


Better Documentation

Project Contacts:

Simon Wilkinson added the -files and -excessive options to the fs_getcacheparms man page and updated the man pages and XML documentation to reflect that new versions don't perform a weekly restart of the bosserver. Asanka Herath fixed a typo in the Admin guide.

Pthreaded Ubik

Project Contact:

Pthreaded ubik now compiles again on master without warnings. While there are no known issues with pthreaded ubik itself at this point, portions of the vlserver code are known not to be threadsafe. Work is ongoing on making the vlserver threadsafe and thus safe to use with pthreaded ubik.


Kerberos v5 and multiple encryption types

Project Contacts:

rxk5 test environment -> upgraded.

build logic for openafs -> fixes so can now build "out of tree".

Now looking at kerberos integration issues.

The plan is to deliver "separated" patches around may. Patches will be against some recent version of openafs as of that time.


Disconnected AFS support

Project Contacts:

Simon started some discussion on the afs3-standardization list about adding a VL_WhoAmI RPC to aid with reconstructing ACL's in disconnected mode.

Per-File ACLs

Project Contacts:

I did some work on it last summer which included a basic working prototype, and there has also been some discussion of the expected semantics, compatibility and implementation issues.

I'm proposing to do a talk on the subject at the next workshop, and hope to revive the issue and move it forward in the meantime by trying to get some consensus on the expected semantics, formalising the protocol changes, and make progress on the coding front.


Projects with no progress or no update
