  • :: Postellation: an Enhanced Delay-Tolerant Network (DTN) Implementation with Video Streaming and Automated Network Attachment

    2012-06-13
    Marc Blanchet ,  Jean-Philippe Dionne ,  Simon Perreault
    Spaceops, Stockholm, Sweden

    This paper describes the Postellation DTN (e.g. Bundle protocol) implementation, which has been written as highly portable running on Windows, Linux, MacOSX as well as embedded real-time operating systems such as RTEMS and others. The paper shows the key differences of this implementation, such as how the real- time streaming is achieved, as well as the automated network attachment mechanism. For example, a use-case scenario is to have IP devices on spacecraft on-board, running typical IP/HTTP-based applications such as an IP-HTTP based streaming camera, then a DTN node gatewaying the IP trafic from the spacecraft to the Earth through the DTN space network. A DTN node on Earth then gateways the trafic to the IP network on Earth. This streaming trafic is deployed transparently for both the spacecraft and Earth IP apps, while traversing a DTN network.

    2011-02-28

    Happy Eyeballs is an attempt at standardizing, within the IETF, current best practices for dual-stack clients connecting to dual-stack servers over TCP. The draft is currently in the early stages and many questions still need answers.

    To help this effort, Viagenie is making available an early open-source implementation of Happy Eyeballs. It uses the high-level Erlang language (from Ericsson), with which it is easy to express asynchronous algorithms. We think this implementation is a perfect fit for experimenting and tweaking algorithms.

    We hope that this will help push IPv6 transition forward.

    Linuq, Québec, Québec, Canada

    IPv6 a été conçu en 1996 suite à une étude prévoyant le manque d'adresses IPv4 autour de 2010. Le déploiement d'IPv6 jusqu'à maintenant a été minimal, même si la plupart des systèmes d'exploitation dont Linux, FreeBSD, Windows, MacOSX, les produits commerciaux routeurs et les applications principales supportent IPv6 souvent depuis belle lurette. Cependant, les adresses IPv4 deviennent rares et très bientôt épuisées. Plusieurs grands fournisseurs, tels que Google, supportent maintenant IPv6. Certains gouvernements se sont positionnés sur cette technologie. La présentation fera l'état de la situation globalement et localement. Elle discutera des impacts pour les individus, les professionnels en informatique, les entreprises et les fournisseurs Internet. Évidemment, des exemples pratiques Linux et autres seront présentés. La présentation se veut très interactive et les questions seront bienvenues durant toute la présentation.

    2010-02-08

    This is to announce the availability of two NAT64-DNS64 open-source implementations by Viagenie, as follows

    • NAT64
      • BSD PF: this implementation of NAT64 is made by modifying the PF packet filter available on BSD systems. A new 'nat64' statement is created in the pf.conf file to enable the nat64 functionality.
      • Linux Netfilter: The implementation of NAT64 for linux is available as a kernel module. It uses Netfilter's facilities for packet interception. The configuration is done with parameters provided at module insertion.
    • DNS64

      As announced in july 2009 during IETF Stockholm, the companion DNS64 functionality is also available in two implementations, as follows:

      • BIND: this implementation of DNS64 is made by modifying the BIND DNS server. A new "dns64-prefix" statement in options is created in the named.conf file to enable DNS64 functionality.
      • Unbound: this implementation of DNS64 is made by adding a module to the Unbound DNS server. To enable the DNS64 functionality, the module should be declared and the dns64-prefix statement should be added in the unbound.conf file.

    The two functionalities (NAT64 and DNS64) make a complete system for translating IPv6-IPv4 packets. The source code, some pre-compiled packages and project description are available at: http://ecdysis.viagenie.ca.

    This project was funded by NLNet foundation and Viagenie.

    We are looking for feedback, patches, suggestions from the community.

    Marc Blanchet ,  Florent Parent
    IETF RFC5572

    A tunnel broker with the Tunnel Setup Protocol (TSP) enables the establishment of tunnels of various inner protocols, such as IPv6 or IPv4, inside various outer protocols packets, such as IPv4, IPv6, or UDP over IPv4 for IPv4 NAT traversal. The control protocol (TSP) is used by the tunnel client to negotiate the tunnel with the broker. A mobile node implementing TSP can be connected to both IPv4 and IPv6 networks whether it is on IPv4 only, IPv4 behind a NAT, or on IPv6 only. A tunnel broker may terminate the tunnels on remote tunnel servers or on itself. This document describes the TSP within the model of the tunnel broker model.

  • ::  TCP Candidates with Interactive Connectivity Establishment (ICE)

    2009-10-13
    Simon Perreault ,  Jonathan Rosenberg
    IETF Internet-Draft draft-ietf-mmusic-ice-tcp-08

    Interactive Connectivity Establishment (ICE) defines a mechanism for NAT traversal for multimedia communication protocols based on the offer/answer model of session negotiation. ICE works by providing a set of candidate transport addresses for each media stream, which are then validated with peer-to-peer connectivity checks based on Session Traversal Utilities for NAT (STUN). ICE provides a general framework for describing candidates, but only defines UDP-based transport protocols. This specification extends ICE to TCP-based media, including the ability to offer a mix of TCP and UDP-based candidates for a single stream.

    2008-09-04
    Simon Perreault
    Astricon, Glendale, AZ, USA

    One of the major impediments to deploying Asterisk is the omnipresence of network address translators (NATs) and firewalls. As evidenced by the success of peer-to-peer VoIP, transparent and automatic NAT and firewall traversal is an extremely desirable feature. This presentation describes STUN, TURN, and ICE: three protocols being standardized by the IETF which work together to either punch holes through NATs and firewalls or, when end-to-end connectivity is not an option, to work around them via a third-party relay. How they work, what problems they solve, and how Asterisk makes use of them is answered. A demonstration of Viagénie's implementation is also given.

    IETF Internet-Draft draft-blanchet-v6ops-tunnelbroker-tsp-04

    A tunnel broker with the Tunnel Setup Protocol (TSP) enables the establishment of tunnels of various inner protocols, such as IPv6 or IPv4, inside various outer protocols packets, such as IPv4, IPv6 or UDP over IPv4 for IPv4 NAT traversal. The control protocol (TSP) is used by the tunnel client to negotiate the tunnel with the broker. A mobile node implementing TSP can be connected to both IPv4 and IPv6 networks whether it is on IPv4 only, IPv4 behind a NAT or on IPv6 only. A tunnel broker may terminate the tunnels on remote tunnel servers or on itself. This document describes the TSP protocol within the model of the tunnel broker model.

  • :: Worldwide Interoperability on VoIP using IPv6

    2007-03-07

    The IPv6 Forum, along with Viagenie, Stealth Communications and CounterPath Solutions, today announced that a series of successful VoIP calls over IPv6 has been carried out, marking an important advancement in worldwide interoperability among VoIP technologies using IPv6.

    The VoIP calls, connecting Viagenie in Canada and Consulintel in Spain, were conducted using the CounterPath eyeBeam(tm) softphone through the IPv6 version of Asterisk,(r) ported by Viagenie, a consulting and R and D firm in advanced IP networking. The Asterisk-IPv6 server was located on Stealth Communications Voice Peering Fabric (VPF) network.

    Asterisk is the most popular and extensible open source telephone system in the world, offering flexibility, functionality and features not available in advanced, high-end (high-cost) proprietary business systems. Asterisk is a complete IP PBX (private branch exchange) for businesses, and can be downloaded for free.

    "Asterisk-IPv6 shows the power of VoIPv6 by avoiding all issues regarding NAT traversal when using IPv4. The presence of NAT for VoIPv4 results in users issues, such as non-connecting calls, one-way audio, non-working DTMF. Asterisk-IPv6 solves all these issues and also brings, together with IPv6, true IP mobility, security and autoconfiguration of VoIPv6 phones", states Marc Blanchet, President of Viagenie.

    IETF Internet-Draft draft-blanchet-v6ops-tunnelbroker-tsp-03

    A tunnel broker with the Tunnel Setup Protocol (TSP) enables the establishment of tunnels of various inner protocols, such as IPv6 or IPv4, inside various outer protocols packets, such as IPv4, IPv6 or UDP over IPv4 for IPv4 NAT traversal. The control protocol (TSP) is used by the tunnel client to negotiate the tunnel with the broker. A mobile node implementing TSP can be connected to both IPv4 and IPv6 networks whether it is on IPv4 only, IPv4 behind a NAT or on IPv6 only. A tunnel broker may terminate the tunnels on remote tunnel servers or on itself. This document describes the TSP protocol within the model of the tunnel broker model.
