Progress Report #10 12/08/2017
Since the last update, all active work has been moved, restructured (and
changed a bit where needed) so that it could be integrated to the
samba-fork <https://github.com/dimgrav/samba> I use on GitHub.
The Samba-GSOC2017 <https://github.com/dimgrav/Samba-GSOC2017> repo will
still be updated to match the samba-fork repo, but not always
Major changes in structure include:
This will be acting as the DNS UDP/TCP call handler with socketwrapper
support and TSIG generation, which is the project goal. This is intended
to replace libcli/dns/dns.c of the mainline Samba Git in the final
builds, through libclid/dns/wscript_build.
_*client_crypto.c - libtsig.h*_
GSS-TSIG client-side handling for signed packets with the structures and
_*dns_tcp.c - libtcp.h*_
TCP client-side DNS call handling and structures lib.
_*dns_udp.c - libdns.h*_
The pre-existing async DNS library for Samba with socketwrapper support,
as written by Kai Blin.
The above corresponding .h files are used in cli_dns.c. The .c files
that handle calls and sig generation are incorporated in cli_dns.c and
are currently used only to facilitate writing tests. They are not
intended to be part of the builds (will be probably removed when
cli_dns.c and tests are finalized).
*_wrap_cli.c - libwrap.h_*
Multiple wrapping for cli_dns.c and associated library.
The test suites that are currently under development, in accordance to
client_crypto, dns_tcp, dns_udp. Integration of tests to a larger suite
that would test cli_dns.c should be relatively simple, if these suites
are individually succesful.
1. TESTS - TESTS - TESTS! Writing tests is probably the hardest part
yet, but that's a good thing!
2. Complete preprocessor include/define statements in all .c and .h
files as required for functionality and performance.
Should I be done with the above swiftly, I might be able to go through
the dns handler code for improvements.
I went through the Samba Wiki in regard to adding documentation, I've
started making some drafts, but I'll have to get some guidelines from my
mentors and the team.
I would appreciate all the feedback I can get at this point, especially
on wrappers and test suites.
Have a great weekend,
