Port NeuVector zero-trust security functions to host/VM

an idea by feih

Project Description

Today, NeuVector only support container environment. It does a lot of security functions and many of those are actually not limited to only protect containers technically. Sometimes, we are seeing requests/asks about providing similar functions to protect servers & VMs. So, it is technically possible. Some of the zero-trust security protections are still pretty unique if we port it over to host/VM side. Welcome if you are interested to help and give it a try!

Predefined app security policy template for NeuVector

an idea by feih

Project Description

Idea is to predefine a set of security policies for popular container applications just for example MySQL, Nginx etc..., with these predefined security policies, users can just download unpack it to use. No need to worry too much about detailed security settings/configurations for this application container. The policies could be any policies that Kubernetes supported and/or NeuVector supported.

SPA (single page application) proxy for OBS API

a project by adamm

Project Description

For many many years, OBS uses Cookies for authentication purposes. This is not really web application friendly and kind of insecure. For instance, all applications on *.opensuse.org domain that get a web request when you are logged into OBS, they get your authentication credentials too. Secondly, if you want to write a 3rd party tool, you can't just use another domain and do random API requests due to this legacy authentication method.

Enhance product migration feature in Uyuni(SUSE Manager) to migrate from regular SLES to SLES4SAP

a project by admehmood

Project Description

Currently, Uyuni(SUSE Manager) offers a product migration feature, but it doesn't support migration from SLE to SLES4SAP. Users are required to run a separate script to perform this migration, which may not be ideal, especially if Uyuni is already installed. Additionally, the script's requirements vary with each service pack.

Rebasing of the current MicroOS installation

It would be nice being able to "rebase" a MicroOS/Aeon/Kalpa installation. This can be useful, for example, to undo changes done manually with transactional-update shell, to try another variant (like replacing Aeon with Kalpa) and so on... but the goal of this project is mostly to get more knowledgeable with the MicroOS/ALP internals (tukit, snapper, et all) while doing something fun.

Cast: A simple alternative to the Make build tool

a project by bbachmann

Project Description

GNU Make has been a popular software tool used for automating simple build, test, and general source code management tasks for a long time. You'll find Makefiles in many software repositories – we use it on many projects as SUSE! For the most part, Make does its job, but often what people want to do with it is not exactly what it was designed for. Specifically, Make users often use Makefiles as a means a means of building out a set of commands that can be applied to their repository. But therein lies the problem: Make was not designed to build quick command line utilities at all, and it quickly becomes a nightmare as soon as the user wants to include arguments or options in their commands. The common alternative is simply to build out a tangled mess of build scripts.

Port Agama's manager to Rust

a project by IGonzalezSosa

Initially, the Agama D-Bus service was written 100% in Ruby. For many things, it relies on YaST, so it makes sense to use the same language. It was great to have something working quickly, but it also had some drawbacks. The main problem is that, as YaST is not thread-safe, we separated the service into different processes (storage, software, localization, etc.). The system became most responsive but at the cost of eating a lot of RAM.

Update Rancher Terraform Quickstart to leverage Elastic IP addresses

a project by kevinmayres

Make Rancher and NeuVector AWS QuickStart persistent across Shutdown.

Specifically update this AWS portion of the QuickStart to leverage Amazon Elastic IP Addresses, making the stack persistent across shutdowns startups. Designed to save budget when not using. While Terraform is designed to build and tear-down, sometimes we add additional customizations post-build which we want to be persistent for the next demo, PoC, or development experiment. Not losing the public IP assigned to cluster API, etc. would allow persistency across shutdown.

Interactive tool to manipulate profiling data

a project by gbertazi

Project Description

I find myself often rerunning the same preprocessing tasks on perf captures, like one-liner scripts to merge/split per-cpu data, time-slice them, filter for specific events and finally plot charts (flamegraphs, heat map, ...). Each time one of these tools run perf-script, just loading 30s worth of events from a large machine can consume precious seconds in my modern laptop. The idea is to provide an interactive tool a la GDB and drgn where we can load the events once and manipulate them interactively to generate different visualizations.

HelenOS: <filesystem> of a down

a project by jjindrak

During the previous Hackweek [0], I have successfully implemented, tested and merged [1] an implementation of the entire C++ standard header <future>. This time, my aim is to modernize the C++14-esque standard library [2] of HelenOS [3][4] with a C++17 feature - the <filesystem> header. The <filesystem> header is much larger than the <future> header which I barely managed to implement and test in the allocated time for the previous Hackweek, but <future> was mostly OS-independent as it relied only on previously implemented features of the standard library. The <filesystem> header, however, is limited by the filesystem API of the OS and as such implementing of the entirety of it might not be possible, limiting the scope of the project (which is a good thing due to the time constraints). The primary features of the header [5] that should be implemented:
