Hello list,

some time ago, there were rumours about a new protocol for controlling DNS servers from various vendors. I think that FreeIPA could benefit from such protocol - in long term perspective.


Please, join the 'nsrpc' mailing list dedicated to the new protocol and contribute to protocol design.

Note that 'security' is open of big open questions!

The proposal/first protocol design:

Thank you for your time!

Subject: Interoperable NS control protocol R2

Hi,

about a year ago, a couple of us (DNS vendors) sat at a table and talked about how to make NS control interoperable. This resulted in a paper where we described what do (and more importantly, what do we don't) want. Since then, the idea is still sound, but also a lot of changes happened. Like the demand for the ability of a NS to talk to each other, zone provisioning and a possible (web?) front-end for this protocol. We also had some feedback from other people in the industry, so I came up with several changes to accomodate for recent changes and added a bit of futureproofing. With all this, I'd like to raise the topic again and see if there's still any agreement and will to do this.

Here's a draft, but a very very open to discussion and clarification. The main changes are shift to notation like JSON(-RPC), so we don't have to reinvent the wheel, rambling about what is and isn't core and a couple thoughts about confidentiality and security.

We also set up a mailinglist to joint the discussion
https://lists.nic.cz/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/nsrpc
ns...@lists.nic.cz

I'd really like to make this happen and deliver an actual code, as soon as we reach some sort of agreement on this.

Cheers,
Marek
