Zero Trust vSphere Provisioning from Rancher

an idea by wjimenez

Currently, when Rancher tries to provision a Kubernetes cluster on vSphere, it needs to initiate API calls to the vSphere endpoint. In a hybrid cloud environment this often means that the Rancher server is not in the same network as the vSphere endpoint. Therefore inbound access is required to be added to a firewall so Rancher can reach the vSphere system. This naturally poses a security concern and creates administrative burden on our users who have to go through a security review to get this approved. If instead of requiring direct API access, an agent could exist inside the network where the vSphere API lived, then this agent could broker the communication between the Rancher server and the downstream API. The agent would simply initiate an outbound API connection to the Rancher server (much like any node agent or cluster agent currently) and simultaneously proxy any API calls that Rancher needs to make to vSphere. This would also have the benefit of being able to be run through a HTTP proxy, which many security teams will appreciate as a less risky connectivity model.

work on sunxi a64 cpufreq driver (for teres-1, pine64)

an idea by mbrugger

With the teres-1 [1] laptop we have a first arm64 device we could use as end-users. Much work to run mainline kernel + u-boot was done already. But power consumption of the laptop is not optimal (~2 hours of battery life time). The idea is to support cpufreq for the A64 SoC upstream, which would enable the teres-1, pine64 and pinebook to run more power efficient. up to now it seems nobody is working on the driver [2].

Uyuni/SUSE Manager: Windows client support

a project by pagarcia

I'll continue the effort I started at last Hackweek to support Windows clients in Uyuni/SUSE Manager using Salt. When this is done, SUSE Manager would act as a WSUS server to Windows clients. https://hackweek.suse.com/20/projects/suse-manager-windows-client-support

Support UEFI network boot in Orthos Prague

a project by ggherdovich

Project Description

It's becoming less and less likely that server-class machine support booting with legacy BIOS. The industry standard is now UEFI, and has been for 15 years; this is what vendors test and support.

Uyuni/SUSE Manager: build Python APE and a Salt+Python bundle to support ANY client operating system

an idea by pagarcia

Uyuni/SUSE Manager build client tools for each of the supported operating systems: SLES 11, SLES 12, SLES 15, RHEL 6, RHEL 7, RHEL 8, Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 20.04, Debian 9, Debian 10... the list is long. This is required because each operating system has different base libraries (glibc, OpenSSL, Python version, etc). A few months ago, the SUSE Manager development team started a (yet unfinished) research task to try to build Salt and all the required dependencies (minus glibc and OpenSSL, because it would break FIPS certification) so that we can always ship the latest version of Salt on each client operating system:
