Release of a network configurator of NetworkManager 1.16


The new stable release of the interface for simplification of control of parameters of network - NetworkManager 1.16 is prepared. Plug-ins for support of VPN, OpenConnect, PPTP, OpenVPN and OpenSWAN develop within own cycles of development.

Key innovations of NetworkManager 1.16: Support of the WireGuard VPN tunnels. All options are available to the WireGuard control through D-Bus API and libnm. Support of creation and management of profiles of connections through WireGuard is added to nmcli. The WireGuard protocol is much simpler than IPsec, and realization quicker than OpenVPN several times; Support of installation of direct wireless connections in the P2P mode (Wi-Fi Direct), the allowing Wi - Fi - to devices to interact directly without routers and points of access. Support of the protocol of authentication and creation of keys of SAE (Simultaneous Authentication of Equals) providing more protected authentication method on the basis of passwords. SAE is based on the protocol of exchange of Diffie's keys - Hellmana with use of final cyclic groups. The resultant sessional key which is received by each party of connection for authentication of a session is developed on the basis of information from the password, keys of each system and the MAC addresses of both parties. The compromise of the closed key of one of the parties does not lead to a compromise of a sessional key, i.e. having even learned the password attacking will not be able to decrypt earlier intercepted traffic; Support of creation of the mesh-networks conforming to standard 802.11s and using the protocol of authentication of SAE;

Support of technology of protection of wireless networks WPA3 Personal in which protection against the attacks on selection of the password appeared (will not allow to select the password in offline mode) and is involved the protocol of authentication of SAE; In a backend on the basis of Wi-Fi of the demon of IWD developed by the Intel company as an alternative of wpa_supplicant support of creation of points of access and direct connection to wireless networks in the Ad-hoc mode is realized; The feature for performance of NetworkManager at an initial stage of loading of a system, at a stage before assembling of root FS Is added. The dracut module can be used to transformation to the NetworkManager format of the network configuration specified in parameters of start of a kernel. After successful initialization of network connection of NetworkManager at an initial stage of loading finishes the performance, and controls of network devices after completion of loading are picked up by a usual copy of NetworkManager; Accuracy of assessment of a condition of network connections Is increased. The state can be traced in a section of separate devices and separately for IPv4 and IPv6 now. On materials: www.opennet.ru
