⚠️ Weekly Meeting ⚠️

Our first weekly will start on the 25th, April 2024 at 7 PM (GMT+2).

You can find all the details on the wiki:
https://wiki.bsd.cafe/docs:weekly-bsdpub

For the first one, I already created a small agenda (https://wiki.bsd.cafe/docs:weekly-bsdpub-meeting-minutes-2024-04-25). You are highly encouraged to modify and extend this, as well as upcoming agendas!

Overview:
Day: Thursdays (weekly)
Time: 7 PM - 8 PM (GMT +2)
Where: https://meet.gyptazy.ch/BSDPub (Jitsi)
Infos: https://wiki.bsd.cafe/docs:weekly-bsdpub
Agenda: https://wiki.bsd.cafe/docs:weekly-bsdpub-meeting-minutes-2024-04-25
Info: No recordings, no deep tech dives (keep it simple, we have calls for the details, no pressures to anyone, have fun and enjoy)

When I started the poll to ask for interests in such a meeting I wasn’t sure that even more than 5 people would be interested. I’m happy to see this amount of interested BSD users. I’m aware of the different timezones and it might make sense to have a second timeslot. This one mostly covers the European and near-east users. I’m happy to hear suggestions regarding preferred timeslots for the US, Asia,… so far, I’m happy to see at least a few of you next Thursday in the call!

Here at Emacs.ch we run an experimental side instance [1] based on Snac2 [2], which is a Mastodon-compatible Fediverse server written in C, runs completly file-based and features a zero-JS UI.

It doesn't have many of the fancy features of Mastodon, but is a bright example of how a super-minimal system can do the job *very* well. It'll also work with your mobile Mastodon apps and small browsers like Dillo[3].

It runs on OpenBSD and we accept a few more testers. There is no automatic sign-up, so if you are interested, DM me with the desired account name and I'll send you the credentials.

@david_chisnall@infosec.exchange

@Neznak I have an obvious bias towards FreeBSD. All of the major BSDs (excluding macOS) have similar management interfaces and packaging systems. They have a common ancestor, but diverged a lot over the last 30ish years. Some things are periodically shared between them.

I would be remiss to not point out as the third large one and as the fourth.

I ran on a PowerPC Mac for a while and found it very easy to learn coming from . As @tulpa says, remember that these are all distinct systems, not just distributions packaging the same set of things slightly differently. NetBSD and FreeBSD both branched from 4.3BSD Net/2 (FreeBSD via 386BSD). OpenBSD forked from NetBSD 1.1, Dragonfly from FreeBSD 4.8 - both have now had decades of independent development (or, as independent as permissively licensed open source projects ever are - a lot of people contribute to more than one and code flows in all directions).

The things that keep me on FreeBSD are:

  • ZFS supported out of the box, from the installer onwards.
  • Jails (and support for OCI containers via Podman).
  • Capsicum as the cleanest way of developing compartmentalised applications on any system.
  • pkg for binary packages and Poudriere for building binary packages (each port is built in a clean jail).

I also use pf (originally from OpenBSD, now ported elsewhere), though NetBSD's npf looks interesting.

I mean, it's right there in the ifconfig man page, while there is no such entry in the corresponding page (again, unless I am mistaken, corrections by smarter people are very welcome)

man.openbsd.org/ifconfig

The result is that, on an ipv4 only network, all the utilities will keep on timing out trying ipv6 addresses first.

Here is the thing with : I like it, I really do, but it's the ton of little infuriating details that bug me.

Take a look at the 2nd screenshot: you will see NetBSD tries an ipv6 address before switching back to ipv4 once it hits a timeout.

Which is fine, except there is no obvious way to disable ipv6 anywhere in NetBSD. And I have searched for a solution!

Conversely, is as smooth as a cold glass of water in a heatwave. DHCP does not provide ipv6? Disable it!

But it also needs something like a self-service portal in long-term. However, for the website I stick to my self-written engine - I guess that fits pretty will here when it's only about serving , & .

This being said, I don't want to write a self-service portal for the web and thought about a service where you just login and can perform several actions like PTR, snapshots, system reset etc.

Currently, I only implemented the user management from an "admin" perspective. A sandbox style can be seen here:

ssh -p 2222 boxybsd@2001:470:54d7:1337::2
Password: create

It's a self-written sshd alike service which communicates with the API and some other bins. Die user login can be done by pub key and pw auth. Feel free to give it a try, it's a sandbox mode on a sandbox vm.

The only BSD license apologia that made sense to me was 's attitude of, "We'd rather the corporations use our good code and not give back than come up with their own crappy solutions."

In that view, its a service to the community at large to help the security of commercial software.

@mattdm @stsp @passthejoe From my perspective, as an user and maintainer of a single port, the software is not in the base OS, so is of little concern to the core developers. The port maintainer was on top of the issue, reviewed it and found it couldn’t affect OpenBSD, plus had only submitted a patch to upgrade to the affected versions which had not yet been merged so wasn’t available as a package to any other developers or users.

xz is not in the base install, must be installed separately by users, and even then is not used by ssh under OpenBSD. Per openwall.com/lists/oss-securit:

"openssh does not directly use liblzma. However debian and several other
distributions patch openssh to support systemd notification, and libsystemd
does depend on lzma."

Any hints regarding limiting abuses on a free VM hosting service without processing dummy payments?

Some may remember which got heavily abused during the beta test. Now, I'm trying it again with longterm VMs. Currently, I grant only VMs to very active user accounts that are providing valuable content to the community (in the hope they're not abusing the service, especially not in a bad way). However, this feels unfair, especially I want to target people that cannot afford VMs to learn and practice on , and - especially when it requires a static IP for name server etc.

Currently, I have no clue except of processing financial data like SEPA, PayPal etc. to have at least a minimum of safety. I thought about GPG, by signings - but I guess GPG is not really used by newer dev- & sysops.

I'm hosting this services for free, with my personal efforts and hardware. I do it to bring some help and valuable things back to the community and especially to newcomers in this field but I don't want to deal everytime with ddos, email spamming, torrent or tor exit nodes. While this is still annoying, there're still some other things you really don't want to deal with. So, I need a useful safety net for me.

Stefano Marinelli »

Sharing some technical details about how I'm setting up the hosted email service. It will not be a service of BSD Cafe but tied to my own business. It will run entirely on BSD systems and on bare metal, NOT on "cloud" VPS. It will use FreeBSD jails or OpenBSD or NetBSD VMs (but on bhyve, on a leased server - I do not want user data to be stored on disks managed by others). The services (opensmtpd and rspamd, dovecot, redis, mysql, etc.) will run on separate jails/VMs, so compromising one service will NOT put the others at risk. Emails will be stored on encrypted ZFS datasets - so all emails are encrypted at rest - and only dovecot will have access to the mail datasets. I'm also considering the possibility of encrypting individual emails with the user's login password - but I still have to thoroughly test this. The setup will be fully redundant (double mx for SMTP, a domain for external IMAP access that will be managed through smart DNS - which will distribute the connections on the DNS side and, in case of a server down, will stop resolving its IP, sending all the connections to the other. Obviously, everything will be accessible in both ipv4 and ipv6 and in two different European countries, on two different providers. Synchronization will occur through dovecot's native sync (extremely stable and tested). All technical choices will be clearly explained - the goal of this service is to provide maximum transparency to users on how things will be handled.

From what I gather, from the very limited information available: the signedness folks are being vocal about an NFS exploit and dubbing it as an OpenBSD RCE.

I have no reason to assume that this is misinformation, given the track record of these folks. However: NFS is disabled by default.

If you are running nfsd, especially exposed publicly, you might want to disable it until this vulnerability is patched.

h3artbl33d »
@h3artbl33d@exquisite.social

Furthermore, both me and PurpleRaiN (from @secbsd fame) went through the source tree. Seems that this is still unpatched.

From that, there is one logical conclusion: the vulnerability is not shared with . Because if it were, it'll be patched faster than one can pronounce "remote code execution".

Hence, this is irresponsible behaviour. "We have a RCE exploit for NFS on OpenBSD, but we aren't disclosing any details, nah-nah".

Every year, I try to learn something new and geeky and I realized recently I haven't planned something for 2024.

So there it is, in no particular order:

- (re)Learn ZFS on using 10.0 when it comes out.

- Wireguard, probably under 7.5 when it come out.

- GlusterFS under - is it possible to compile and use it under Slackware 15? Can a slackbuild be made?

All of this to say, we may have 10 and 7.5 released with weeks of each other.

I like it, but I am weird like that! 🤓
