The Linux Foundation and PLUMgrid today announced an alliance of hardware manufacturers, Linux distribution vendors and others that aims to advance Linux networking and virtualization for modern data centers. Other partners in this alliance include Barefoot Networks, Broadcom, Canonical, Cavium, Cisco, Huawei, Intel, and SUSE. The project will be based on PLUMgrid’s existing IO Visor technology, which the company is donating to the project. The Linux Foundation will offer additional support. The trend in compute, storage and networking is toward virtualization, and PLUMgrid argues that I/O and networking subsystems need to keep up, especially when it comes to Internet of Things applications. In PLUMgrid’s view, the trend toward delivering network functions as virtual appliances — as opposed to expensive single-purpose hardware routers and switches — creates performance and scale bottlenecks because, the company argues, these virtual appliances weren’t built to easily scale with demand. “As a company that actively supports a number of open source projects, we believe that open sourcing IO Visor through a community hosted with the Linux Foundation was in the best interests of not only our company, but of everyone dependent upon agile and highly performant cloud technologies at scale,” said PLUMgrid founder and CTO Pere Monclus. That all sounds pretty abstract, but the idea here is to build the IO Visor into every server in the data center to create a virtual network. The visor then works with PLUMgrid’s Director service to create the data layers that connect all of these networks according to the developers’ needs. “This collaboration is critically important as virtualization is putting more demands on flexibility, performance and security,” said Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Linux Foundation. “Open source software and collaborative development are the ingredients for addressing massive change in any industry. IO Visor will provide the essential framework for this work on Linux virtualization and networking.”

BitTorrent applications used by hundreds of millions of users around the world could be tricked into participating in distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, amplifying the malicious traffic generated by attackers by up to 50 times. BitTorrent applications used by hundreds of millions of users around the world could be tricked into participating in distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, amplifying the malicious traffic generated by attackers by up to 50 times. DDoS reflection is a technique that uses IP (Internet Protocol) address spoofing to trick a service to send responses to a third-party computer instead of the original sender. It can be used to hide the source of malicious traffic. The technique can typically be used against services that communicate over the User Datagram Protocol (UDP), because unlike the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), UDP does not perform handshakes and therefore source IP address validation. This means an attacker can send a UDP packet with a forged header that specifies someone else's IP address as the source, causing the service to send the response to that address. Over the past two years, attackers have abused UDP-based protocols like the Domain Name System (DNS), the Network Time Protocol (NTP) and the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) to launch record-breaking DDoS attacks with bandwidths of up to 400Gbps. Four researchers from City University London, Mittelhessen University of Applied Sciences in Friedberg, Germany and cloud networking firm PLUMgrid, analyzed the protocols used by popular BitTorrent clients and found that they could also be abused for DDoS reflection and amplification. In a paper presented last week at the 9th USENIX Workshop on Offensive Technologies (WOOT '15) the researchers showed how popular programs like uTorrent, Vuze or the BitTorrent Mainline client can help attackers amplify DDoS traffic by up to 50 times. BitTorrent Sync (BTSync), which is a separate protocol designed for peer-to-peer file synchronization, can be exploited for an amplification factor of up to 120. Even less popular BitTorrent clients with smaller market shares like Transmission or LibTorrent are vulnerable, but their amplification factor is considerably lower -- 4 percent and 5 percent respectively -- the researchers said. Exploiting BitTorrent protocols for DDoS amplification is in many ways more efficient than exploiting DNS or NTP. That's because there is a relatively small number of vulnerable DNS or NTP servers available on the Internet, but there are tens of millions of computers running vulnerable BitTorrent programs. Moreover, DNS and NTP typically use a fixed port number so it's easy to filter malicious traffic over those protocols. But BitTorrent uses dynamic port ranges, so detecting and blocking an attack requires specialized firewalls capable of performing deep packet inspection, the researchers said. Furthermore, attackers could exploit a BitTorrent protocol extension called Message Stream Encryption (MSE), which is supported by most BitTorrent clients and is designed to encrypt the traffic. DDoS amplification using MSE would be even harder to filter, the researchers said. There are several types of countermeasures that could be implemented to prevent such attacks, according to the researchers. One requires ISPs to implement recommended security practices like network ingress filtering to prevent IP spoofing in general. According to the Spoofer Project, which tracks how many networks allow IP spoofing on the Internet, about 24 percent of publicly routed IP address prefixes in the world can currently be spoofed. Another countermeasure would be to implement a TCP-like, three-way handshake in the Micro Transport Protocol (uTP) that is currently used by most BitTorrent clients. However, this would be a significant change that would require a long adoption time and would create incompatibility with older clients. Finally, BitTorrent programs could limit the messages that they include in their first uTP packet to one, which some clients already do. This wouldn't prevent the attack, but would reduce the amplification factor to around 4 or 5, the researchers said.

The Linux Foundation kicked off its LinuxCon event with the announcement of new efforts that will build on the promise of open-source collaboration. SEATTLE—The Linux Foundation's annual LinuxCon USA event started here today, with a trio of announcements that could help propel the mainframe, networking and storage worlds forward: the official announcement of the Open Mainframe Project, led by IBM; the IO visor networking project from PLUMgrid; and the Kinetic storage project, which benefits from code contributions from Seagate. "What companies are realizing is that open source is a great way to develop software, and they understand the economics," Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Linux Foundation, told eWEEK. "They put a dollar in, and they get $10 of research and development out. That's a powerful incentive for people to participate in these projects." The Open Mainframe Project is of interest to Zemlin, who noted that his father was a mainframe programmer. Zemlin said that IBM has been seeing growth in demand for Linux on the mainframe, which is the driver for the new project. In addition to the project, IBM is launching a pair of new dedicated Linux mainframes, dubbed the LinuxONE Emperor and the LinuxONE Rockhopper. The Emperor system is a Linux optimized version of the z13 mainframe, which IBM announced in January, while the Rockhopper is based on the bc12 mainframe. For the IO visor project, the Linux Foundation is adding a new layer to its list of networking efforts. The Linux Foundation today helps operate the OpenDaylight software-defined networking (SDN) and Open Platform for Network Functions Virtualization (OPNFV) projects.When it makes sense to integrate something into an existing project, the Linux Foundation will do that, but in other cases, it seeks to maintain unique projects on their own, which is the case with IO visor, Zemlin said.The IO visor technology is a virtualized I/O engine that allows for programmable network functions to be created on demand at run time within virtualized network domains. The IO Visor project within the Linux Foundation already has the support of multiple vendors, including Broadcom, Cisco and Intel. The new Kinetic project is also unique within the Linux Foundation as a bare-metal, block-storage effort and has the support of Cisco, Dell, Red Hat and Seagate. The Kinetic technology was originally created by Seagate. "We are proud to be partnering with the Linux Foundation on the Kinetic project, as we believe that this technology is the next great step in the evolution of massively scaled-out storage," Rocky Pimentel, president, global markets and customers, at Seagate, said in a statement . "By aligning the Kinetic project with our partners under the Linux Foundation, the project now has strong validation within the industry and shows Seagate's support of open-source technologies in providing solutions to the most challenging problems of data storage." While the Linux Foundation is hosting the new projects, Zemlin aims to make sure that everyone understands what role the Linux Foundation plays. The Linux Foundation is an enabler of open-source development, helping fund multiple efforts, including travel funding for Linux and open-source developers to attend conferences, Zemlin said. The Linux Foundation also is helping improve the security of the Internet as a whole with the Let's Encrypt effort that aims to make encryption easier to deploy. Additionally, the efforts of the Linux Foundation-backed Core Infrastructure Initiative (CII) are helping boost security. Overall, the work is made possible by the developers who write and contribute code, Zemlin said, adding that it is the role of the Linux Foundation to enable developers. "We want to tell people there is tremendously great work going on here, and it makes the open-source community better and it makes the world better," he said.
