We have released OpenBGPD 8.1, which will be arriving in the
OpenBGPD directory of your local OpenBSD mirror soon.
This release includes the following changes to the previous release:
Include OpenBSD 7.3 errata 002: Avoid fatal errors in bgpd(8) due to incorrect refcounting and mishandling of ASPA objects. Fix bgpctl(8) 'show rib in' by renaming 'invalid' into 'disqualified'.
Include OpenBSD 7.3 errata 006: Incorrect length handling of path attributes in bgpd(8) can lead to a session reset.
Include OpenBSD 7.3 errata 009: When tracking nexthops over IPv6 multipath routes, or when receiving a NOTIFICATION while reaching an internal limit, bgpd(8) could crash.
When checking the next hop for IPv6 multipath routes, or when receiving a NOTIFICATION while reaching an internal limit, bgpd(8) could crash.
Add configure options to adjust WWW_USER and wwwrunstatedir.
Fix 'ext-community * *' matching which also affects filters removing all ext-commuinites.
Limit the socket buffer size to 64k for all sessions. Limiting the buffer size to a reasonable size ensures that not too many updates end up queued in the TCP stack.
OpenBGPD-portable is known to compile and run on FreeBSD and the
Linux distributions Alpine, Debian, Fedora, RHEL/CentOS and Ubuntu.
It is our hope that packagers take interest and help adapt OpenBGPD-portable
to more distributions.
We welcome feedback and improvements from the broader community.
Thanks to all of the contributors who helped make this release
