eduroam 802.1X deviceauth refresh

Do you recognize the following web form?

Registration form for 802.1X devices against the RA RADIUS server

If you don’t then you can stop reading. If you do then, even if you haven’t had occasion to fill it in often, please read on as there are changes coming.

Above is the registration form to permit a device (probably a NAS but could be an individual AP; these are not laptops or phones) at a given IP to make RADIUS auth and acct requests against the central Remote Access RADIUS servers, the authentication mechanism currently used for University of Oxford eduroam accounts. The page also allows you to see your existing registrations and remove them.

Over the years this web page has been given the odd spruce but its roots as a CGI Perl script (thus referred to as the “CGI version” from now on) haven’t changed and it very much is a product of its generation. They haven’t changed yet, I should say.

Ready for an imminent release is a new page that will take over the duties of the existing form. It’s still written in Perl (because Perl is the best programming language in existence) but is now not based on CGI.pm, which is probably a good thing. Here’s the new form:

New registration form for 802.1X devices against the RA RADIUS server

Why should you care? Under normal circumstances we probably would just roll this out without much fanfare. However there are some necessary yet fundamental changes under the hood that probably will affect you. You need to know about them before we release it.

Permissions

Perhaps the largest change that will affect you is permissions. The CGI version bases its ACLs around your ITSS affiliation. If you’re ITSS for Aardvark College say, then you have permission to add an IP address. What range of IP addresses are available for you, the ITSS of Aardvark, to add? Well this system is an old system so for reasons I will elaborate shortly, any IP address within the University will be accepted, belonging to any unit. That’s not ideal. [As an aside, please do not take the opportunity to register every one of our ~130k IP addresses, for jokes. I will know who you are, and I will come find you.]

Permission to deregister is similarly done by ITSS affiliation. Here you need to be a member of the unit that was assigned to the device at registration time. This makes it awkward when another ITSS accidentally registered something on your subnet range. In this case you can neither see the registration nor delete it. I should note that to the best of my knowledge this has not come up as an issue, and please let’s keep it that way.

At the heart of the problem is the fact that when this tool was originally written (decades ago) nothing existed that mapped a subnet to a college or department. Today though, a system exists which maps University subnets to Hydra Groups in Groupstore, and each unit (college and department) has a Hydra Group associated with them. So, can we just check you are an ITSS for the Group in question and carry on as before, adding constraints that you can only add IPs belonging to your Group? No, because there is a problem:  Groupstore contains more Hydra Groups than just those affiliated with units. In addition subnets have been assigned to teams within units (small case teams, not Microsoft Teams). These Groups exist outside of OakLDAP and thus do not have any ITSS.

The solution is fairly obvious: the Hydra Groups in Groupstore contain members which we can reuse. The downside is that not everyone who is an ITSS is in their unit’s Groupstore group. In practice I do not think this list will be large, but it needs explictly saying, hence the blog post.

Perhaps now is a good place to point out that Groupstore is a rather powerful and flexible beast. Inside its belly is a large chunk of CUD and OakLDAP data, and as such if you wish to have Groups dynamically update as, for example, your ITSS membership changes, that’s a one-off configuration change. Said another way, if you wish for a Group to contain the ITSS for a particular Unit, you inherit memberships and thereafter this Group will be up-to-date and you don’t need to do anything.

Summary: CGI system uses ITSS affiliation for ACLs. New system will check for Group membership in Groupstore, and also check permissions against the IP address being registered.

Autocleaning

An overhaul of the system affords us to look at what’s not working with the current system. One thing is the proliferation of unused or abandoned registrations. We’ve made some efforts to highlight them where we can (a telltale sign is the lack of a DNS record) but it’s come to the stage when some kind of automated housekeeping is in order. Thus, with the new system, we will be removing registrations that have not contacted our central RADIUS servers within 120 days. If you wish to subsequently make use of RADIUS via that IP you will need to reregister.

In practice 120 days should be a large enough window to send something. I cannot imagine a NAS lying dormant that whole time.

Summary: Registrations will be autoremoved after 120 days of device inactivity.

Extra features

On their own, the following enhancements do not merit a blog post, but since you’re here and still reading, I will mention them:

  • The new page will allow you to bulk remove registrations. Just click the [X] next to the registrations you wish to remove and then confirm at the top of the page.
  • For the registration form, you will notice that there is now no option to select the unit/group. The group will be inferred based purely on the IP being registered.
  • Better error messages will tell you exactly what the problem is if you add an invalid IP address
  • Not relevant today, but the new system is IP version agnostic, although there are some issues currently around this still, the main one being we do not yet have a production IPv6 RADIUS service address.

Timescales

The new system is done, tested and ready for deployment. If there is any comment or question that you wish to pass on then please do get in touch via the appropriate channels. We have nominally pencilled in 30th November 2022 for the upgrade, and this is coordinated in CR#20015059

Conclusion

To restate the summaries above:

  • RADIUS deviceauth registration currently uses ITSS affiliation for its ACLs. The new system will check for Group membership in Groupstore, and also check permissions against the IP address being registered.
  • Registrations will be autoremoved after 120 days of device inactivity.

These are minor, but visible changes so please do make a note of them and update your Groupstore Groups accordingly.

5510 FroDo Upgrade Resumption (September 2022)

As per recent communication on ITSS-A we are now in a position to resume FroDo upgrades with a configuration workaround available to fix the L2VPN annexe instability issue seen on a small number of sites.

The following schedule lists the FroDos that still need an upgrade starting with those with no L2VPN. We will commence upgrades at 07:30 to try to minimize any disruption.

Odin Frodo – HPE 5510 Firmware Upgrades (July 2022)

Dear ITSS,

It is our intention to upgrade all of our Odin HPE 5510 FroDos during July and the first week of August. This will be moving the firmware from R1311P02 to R3507P02.

The upgrades will be carried out starting on Wednesday 6th July and will be performed in groups of 20 -30 devices per day.   We have been running the firmware on a pilot group of FroDos in advance of the main upgrade activity. This includes 13 Banbury Road, Dartington House, a small number of colleges and all of our small MDX rooms. Option 1 and 2 FroDos were also included in this group. To date we have not experienced any issues with the firmware. A spreadsheet with the schedule will also be attached on the ITSS Announcement email.

Apologies for the length of this post (there are a lot of FroDos!) – we will work on an improved, more targeted, way of communicating this to you for the next round of upgrades.

The devices will be scheduled to reload to pick up their new firmware at 07:00 on each morning, service interruption is expected to be between 5 – 10 minutes. Please contact us on networks@it.ox.ac.uk if there are any queries.

Posted in General Maintenance, Odin | Comments Off on Odin Frodo – HPE 5510 Firmware Upgrades (July 2022)

Odin FroDo Upgrades 2021

Dear ITSS,

It is our intention to upgrade all of our Odin HPE 5510 FroDos in September. This will be moving the firmware from R1311P02 to R3506P11. We are not upgrading the DCDIST/HPE 5940 FroDos, we do not expect new code to be released for these devices until the new year.

The upgrades will be carried out starting next week (w/c 13/09/2021 ) and will be performed in groups each day, Tuesday to Thursday, over a period of three weeks.  We have been running the code on the Banbury Rd FroDo for the last week and will also be upgrading a few more IT services/UAS devices this week.

Impact

The expected impact is ~5-10 minutes for all customers as the FroDo reloads to pick up the new firmware, unfortunately this firmware is not ISSU (In Service Software Upgrade) compatible with the previous release so the impact will be similar for Option 2 customers.

We will be carrying out the upgrades from 07:30 each morning as part of an automated process.

If there are any further queries please contact us on networks@it.ox.ac.uk 

Schedule

We have attempted, where possible, to group devices around main sites and annexes so that those sites will only see one period of disruption from the upgrade process.

OWL Visitor refresh – Timetable

This blog post is an expansion on the previous post about Tawny OWL to give timescales.

The upgrade of the FroDos to re-route OWL traffic from the current system to the new one (called Tawny) is roughly a two stage process:

1) Configure the Frodo to set up the relevant VLANs and L3VPNs.
2) Associate the existing OWL ports with the new VLAN.

Step one can happen without any effect on existing traffic and we will be doing that on all FroDos before we move onto step 2.

Step 2 will be done in batches to aid us in testing successful migration testing. Also, note that if you are a COWLS customer, we will be applying the change to your FroDos just for completeness. Nothing will change with respect to existing connectivity.

The listing goes as follows:

OWL Visitor refresh

This post aims to give a bit more background and detail around the announcement to IT Support Staff regarding the forthcoming refresh to the OWL Visitor service.

What are we doing?

We’re replacing the captive portal component of the service.  This is the part that shows the visitor login page as well handling things like the firewall rules and NAT.

The images below show the current (l) and new (r) portal login pages.

We are not changing anything else about the service so the account management system, administration of account administrators and visitor RADIUS servers all remain the same.

 

When are we doing it?

The main roll out is scheduled to take place on 3rd March 2020.

IT Services has been running the new OWL since 14th January, so pop along to 13 Banbury Road if you want to take an early look.

We are inviting ITSS to help us test the new system from early February so please let us know if you’d like to take part.  (The networks team has no access to test clients and so has only been able to test with what its staff members happen to use).

 

Why are we doing it?

  1. The current OWL portal has been running for 15 years.  That’s over 100 in dog years and it has a number of limitations commensurate with its age.
  2. The University rejected JISC’s eduroam Visitor Access service as an OWL replacement on Information Security grounds.
  3. The OWL portal doesn’t support TLS versions above 1.0 (see point 1).  This will become an issue in March when the major browser vendors start dropping support for TLS 1.0.

 

How are we doing it?

A new VRF has been deployed across Odin (campus backbone) with its gateway being a new pair of servers running pfSense.  On changeover day, your OWL FroDo port is simply associated with the new VRF.  This allows us to easily roll out on a FroDo by FroDo basis and revert if necessary.

Hydra – a new DNS/IPAM platform

We are pleased to announce the forthcoming launch of Hydra – our new DNS and IP Address Management platform.

This will replace the current DNS web management tool.

 

Timetable

The last DNS update for the current system will be at 18:00 on Friday, 29 November 2019.

Hydra will go live during the morning of Tuesday, 03 December 2019.

There will be an Early Life Support period until the end of January 2020 during which the Hostmaster team will make edits on your behalf.

 

Things to do now as ITSS01

Check the lists of domains and subnets to make sure your Unit owns all the resources you think it should.  There’s also a handy summary list.  Please contact <networks@it.ox.ac.uk> to claim any you believe you should own.

Unless you’re happy to be the only person able to edit your Unit’s DNS records, you’ll need to gain access to Groupstore so that you can edit the your Unit’s members group.

Read the help pages and also play in the sandpit.  The sandpit uses a non-production database so you can try things out without worrying about affecting live data.

Book onto one of two ITSS sessions (15 and 24 October) where you can ask any questions you may have.

DC Distributor FroDo – Upgrades November 2019

Introduction      

We would like to announce the upgrade of the version of Comware running on our DC Distributor FroDos. This follows on from the recent upgrade of all customer FroDos during September and the start of this month.

This blog entry aims to answer the majority of questions that this work will raise. Please, however, feel free to contact the Networks team with any further questions at networks@it.ox.ac.uk

Why?

As part of ongoing maintenance it is essential that we keep our FroDo software up to date. The new version of software being deployed addresses a number of vulnerabilities and bugs. This takes us from R2612H01 to R2702 for these devices.

Impact

All DC Distributor FroDos are HPE 5940’s running in an IRF pair. As a result, we can use the HPE In Service Software Update (ISSU) feature which aims to minimise impact to traffic passing through the FroDo pair as it is upgraded.

The DC distributors do run a variety of customer annexe connections into the DC sites Frodo and this information is listed within Huggin. Just enter the name or frodo number. Any customers who do not have an aggregated annexe connection across both devices will be affected as the single device they connect to reloads. The reload time for a HPE 5940 is ~10 minutes.

Finally, we have recently migrated several services from the old service spine onto pairs of DC distributors. With that in mind I have provided a list, in upgrade order, of the central services that are hosted on each device.

It is important to remember that we have resilience in the form of IRF as well as the service being provided from two distinct dcdist FroDos. However, as with all upgrades, there is an element of risk and therefore the services themselves should be considered at risk during the upgrade window.

Frodo Upgrades 2019

FroDo Comware Upgrade

We would like to announce a staged upgrade of the version of Comware running on our HPE 5510 and 5940 FroDos. This blog entry aims to answer the majority of questions that this work will raise. Please, however, feel free to contact the Networks team with any further questions at networks@it.ox.ac.uk

NOTE: This does not include upgrading the dcdist FroDos – these will be upgraded as a separate task in due course.

Why?

As part of ongoing maintenance it is essential that we keep our FroDo software up to date. The new versions of software being deployed address a number of vulnerabilities and bugs. For those interested this upgrade takes us from R1309P06 to R1311P02 for HPE 5510 devices and R2612H01 to R2702 for HPE 5940s. In total this change involves over 330 devices.

Addressed Vulnerabilities

201811140403

  • Symptom: CVE-2018-15473

Condition: OpenSSH is prone to a user-enumeration vulnerability. An attacker may leverage this issue to harvest valid user accounts, which may aid in brute-force attacks. OpenSSH through 7.7 are vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.

 

Information about the detail of vulnerabilities can be found at https://cve.mitre.org/cve/search_cve_list.html

 

Impact

The expected impact is ~5-10 minutes for Option 1 customers during which time the FroDo will reload and external services will not be available. For Option 2 customers the impact is expected to be minimal thanks to the In Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) capability.

We will be carrying out the upgrades between 06:30 and 08:00 to minimise impact.

Timescale

We plan to upgrade approximately 80 FroDo’s on each of the following days:

Group A: Thursday 19th September
Group B: Tuesday 24th September
Group C: Thursday 26th September
Group D: Tuesday 1st October

Schedule

 

We have attempted, where possible, to group devices around main sites and annexes so that those sites will only see one period of disruption from this upgrade schedule. Detailed schedules listing devices and dates can be found at https://docs.ntg.ox.ac.uk/pub/reference/odin-frodo-software-upgrade-september-october-2019

 

Once again, if you have any further queries then please contact us at networks@it.ox.ac.uk

This blog post hasn’t spun out of any particular instance, but I sometimes get the feeling that clicking the “Mark as SPAM” button in a mail client isn’t completely understood by everyone, which isn’t surprising as everything that follows is what could happen rather than what actually does happen. These scenarios are up to a combination of sending domain and receiving domain policies to bring into force. The take-home message should be to not mark legitimate emails as SPAM. If it’s a mailing list, then unsubscribe; if it’s a hot email thread involving your co-workers, create an inbox rule to mute the thread; if it’s incessant “shared” emails from a relative ask them to stop!

Without further ado, this is what could happen if you mark an email as SPAM:

The email gets deleted in your mailbox

The starter for 10; there’s little point in you marking an email as SPAM if it didn’t get removed from your INBOX. I’m sure many people have clicking the SPAM button and the Delete button as equivalent actions. One particularly nasty UI decision of a web based mail client once required a single click to mark an email as spam, but two to delete the email. Of course people took the path of less resistance and clicked the SPAM button rather than the delete button, which wasn’t great because of the scenarios that follow.

The sending domain/server gets blocked or similar emails to other recipients get emails sent to junk

One person’s SPAM is another person’s genuine enhancement pills newsletter. OK, an email advertising stamina enhancing drugs is perhaps a silly example, but if you’re getting regular emails from a mailing list, you may be doing a disservice to other subscribers who want to receive these emails when you mark them as SPAM. Some mail providers handle this better than others, but there is a risk that if you mark an email as spam when it isn’t, other’s will not receive the email into their INBOX.

Postmaster may get a copy of your email

This is probably the least known aspect of SPAM management. When you mark an email as such, the sending domain potentially has the ability to request information about the spam message, including the full message’s contents. You will have to read the T&Cs of your mail provider, but I wouldn’t be surprised if yours has a clause saying that mail you marked as SPAM has different privacy levels as your legitimate mail.

How does this forwarding back to the sending domain happen? This varies based on receiving domain. Using Microsoft as an example of how you can do it, they have a Junk Mail Reporting Program (JMRP) where you can enroll your sending servers. Any email marked as spam that was sent from these servers is sent a copy to a configurable email address.

Now that the sending server has a copy of the “SPAM”, how is it analyzed? I’ll leave that to your imagination, but not every company has the ability to use just artificial intelligence. Some human interaction may be involved.

Conclusion

Don’t mark genuine email as SPAM! It’s in everyone’s interest.
