      net: sctp: introduce uapi header for sctp · 1b866434
      Daniel Borkmann authored
      This patch introduces an UAPI header for the SCTP protocol,
      so that we can facilitate the maintenance and development of
      user land applications or libraries, in particular in terms
      of header synchronization.
      To not break compatibility, some fragments from lksctp-tools'
      netinet/sctp.h have been carefully included, while taking care
      that neither kernel nor user land breaks, so both compile fine
      with this change (for lksctp-tools I tested with the old
      netinet/sctp.h header and with a newly adapted one that includes
      the uapi sctp header). lksctp-tools smoke test run through
      successfully as well in both cases.

      sctp: Make hmac algorithm selection for cookie generation dynamic · 3c68198e
      Neil Horman authored
      Currently sctp allows for the optional use of md5 of sha1 hmac algorithms to
      generate cookie values when establishing new connections via two build time
      config options.  Theres no real reason to make this a static selection.  We can
      add a sysctl that allows for the dynamic selection of these algorithms at run
      time, with the default value determined by the corresponding crypto library
      This comes in handy when, for example running a system in FIPS mode, where use
      of md5 is disallowed, but SHA1 is permitted.
      Note: This new sysctl has no corresponding socket option to select the cookie
      hmac algorithm.  I chose not to implement that intentionally, as RFC 6458
      contains no option for this value, and I opted not to pollute the socket option
      Change notes:
      	* Updated subject to have the proper sctp prefix as per Dave M.
      	* Replaced deafult selection options with new options that allow
      	  developers to explicitly select available hmac algs at build time
      	  as per suggestion by Vlad Y.

      sctp: Implement quick failover draft from tsvwg · 5aa93bcf
      Neil Horman authored
      I've seen several attempts recently made to do quick failover of sctp transports
      by reducing various retransmit timers and counters.  While its possible to
      implement a faster failover on multihomed sctp associations, its not
      particularly robust, in that it can lead to unneeded retransmits, as well as
      false connection failures due to intermittent latency on a network.
      Instead, lets implement the new ietf quick failover draft found here:
      This will let the sctp stack identify transports that have had a small number of
      errors, and avoid using them quickly until their reliability can be
      re-established.  I've tested this out on two virt guests connected via multiple
      isolated virt networks and believe its in compliance with the above draft and
      works well.

      sctp: Sysctl configuration for IPv4 Address Scoping · 72388433
      Bhaskar Dutta authored
      This patch introduces a new sysctl option to make IPv4 Address Scoping
      configurable <draft-stewart-tsvwg-sctp-ipv4-00.txt>.
      In networking environments where DNAT rules in iptables prerouting
      chains convert destination IP's to link-local/private IP addresses,
      SCTP connections fail to establish as the INIT chunk is dropped by the
      kernel due to address scope match failure.
      For example to support overlapping IP addresses (same IP address with
      different vlan id) a Layer-5 application listens on link local IP's,
      and there is a DNAT rule that maps the destination IP to a link local
      IP. Such applications never get the SCTP INIT if the address-scoping
      draft is strictly followed.
      This sysctl configuration allows SCTP to function in such
      unconventional networking environments.
      Sysctl options:
      0 - Disable IPv4 address scoping draft altogether
      1 - Enable IPv4 address scoping (default, current behavior)
      2 - Enable address scoping but allow IPv4 private addresses in init/init-ack
      3 - Enable address scoping but allow IPv4 link local address in init/init-ack

      sctp: Disallow new connection on a closing socket · bec9640b
      Vlad Yasevich authored
      If a socket has a lot of association that are in the process of
      of being closed/aborted, it is possible for a remote to establish
      new associations during the time period that the old ones are shutting
      down.  If this was a result of a close() call, there will be no socket
      and will cause a memory leak.  We'll prevent this by setting the
      socket state to CLOSING and disallow new associations when in this state.

      sctp: Rework the tsn map to use generic bitmap. · 8e1ee18c
      Vlad Yasevich authored
      The tsn map currently use is 4K large and is stuck inside
      the sctp_association structure making memory references REALLY
      expensive.  What we really need is at most 4K worth of bits
      so the biggest map we would have is 512 bytes.   Also, the
      map is only really usefull when we have gaps to store and
      report.  As such, starting with minimal map of say 32 TSNs (bits)
      should be enough for normal low-loss operations.  We can grow
      the map by some multiple of 32 along with some extra room any
      time we receive the TSN which would put us outside of the map
      boundry.  As we close gaps, we can shift the map to rebase
      it on the latest TSN we've seen.  This saves 4088 bytes per
      association just in the map alone along savings from the now
      unnecessary structure members.

      SCTP: Fix difference cases of retransmit. · b6157d8e
      Vlad Yasevich authored
      Commit d0ce9291
       broke several retransmit
      cases including fast retransmit.  The reason is that we should
      only delay by rto while doing retranmists as a result of a timeout.
      Retransmit as a result of path mtu discover, fast retransmit, or
      other evernts that should trigger immidiate retransmissions got broken.
      Also, since rto is doubled prior to marking of packets elegable for
      retransmission, we never marked correct chunks anyway.
      The fix is provide a reason for a given retransmission so that we
      can mark chunks appropriately and to save the old rto value to do
      comparisons against.
      All regressions tests passed with this code.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      Let it rip!
