Reviewed mandatory upgrades to Java 11 and Python 3 for all projects

Migration of ONAP to standard infrastructure versions: Docker, Kubernetes, OS images, databases, etc (see Database, Java, Python, Docker, Kubernetes, and Image Versions)

Updating vulnerable direct dependencies:

  • SECCOM repo specific recommendations on the Security Vulnerabilities protected wiki space
  • Must be complete by M2

Resources to do the non-functional work

Potential dependencies that conflict with new versions

SECCOM will have representative at the weekly PTL call to answer questions

PTLS and others are always welcome to attend the SECCOM weekly on Tuesdays to raise issues

PTLs secure resources and plan to identify show stoppers as soon as possible (M1)

EUAG Operator Survey & In-Depth Analysis On Consumption Model

Presenters: Atul Purohit

Presented End User Advisory Group's survey on various ONAP consumption models, which led to creation of EUAG white paper

Key topics covered -

› Introduction – EUAG

› What Survey & Why

› Survey Questions, Deductions

› Recommendations

› Paper & Wrap - Up

  • EUAG should create an action plan out of survey inference, what it means for various committees and how can the feedback be provided back to CSPs
  • Survey sample was about 50% of overall members and 75% of active members, to make similar activities more impactful in future perhaps the survey can be done with larger sample size

OOM Status update: what's planned internally

Presenters/Moderators: Sylvain Desbureaux, Krzysztof Opasiak

Review of the planned OOM changes :

Support of Helm V3

Kubernetes V1.17 (or 1.18)

Migrate to Seccom recommended Versions

Update defaults (use Ingress, Storage Class, Hardened OS)

Might be breaking gating during changes, impact deploymentscheck if Helm V3 requires Kubernetes v1.17+

OOM Status update: consequences on other components

Presenters/Moderators: Sylvain Desbureaux, Krzysztof Opasiak

Review of the required changes on components helm charts VS requirements

presentation of changes, use of templates, adding appender to Logback to support STDOUT as additional output

Container that do not contain ONAP code should not be hosted on Nexus

No Root access to DB

Application config should be fully prepared before starting the container

Containers must crash properly when a failure occurs

No more Nodeports

AAF optional (component should work without AAF even in degraded mode)

HTTPS is mandatory but should be configurable (disable in case of Service Mesh as this will be offloaded to Service Mesh)

Container RootFS should be mounted as ReadOnly

Commit message rules for OOM

AAF removal or optional / POC SMeshSecCom to follow up and define what disabling AAF means 

Requirements Traceability:  Initial Request through TSC Approval

Presenters/Moderators: Alla Goldner, Chaker Al-Hakim, Pawel Pawlak, Pamela Dragosh, David McBride, Catherine Lefevre

  • brainstorming and discussion on aligning the ONAP requirements pipeline 
  • Consensus:
    • any requirements- regardless of source- should go through the requirements subcommittee.
    • and euag submits requirements to req. sub where they are vetted
    • committee consolidates backlog
    • committee should make prioritization recommendations to the TSC

wiki: 2020 June vDTF ONAP Requirements Traceability: Initial Request through TSC Approval

  • How can we streamline the requirements coming from different sources inside and outside from the ONAP Community?
  • As an example, EUAG → REq Subcommittee prioritirised → (Architecture Review) → TSC 
  • Enhance the mission of the Requirements Subcommittee:
    • Act as the ONAP Product Owners 
    • Recommend Prioritization to the TSC
    • Create the consolidated ONAP Backlog

The presentation covers Frankfurt CNF instantiation improvements on vFW use case example

  • Changed modelling of the vFW CNF - split into 4 helm packages to benefit from CDS resource assignment
  • Change from a'la Carte VNF-API instantiation flow into Macro GR-API with CDS
  • Utilization of CDS for automatic assignment of Helm package overrides
  • CDS uploads optionally profile which allows for further helm enrichment like extra k8s resources

Use Case Doc: https://onap-doc.readthedocs.io/projects/onap-integration/en/latest/docs_vFW_CNF_CDS.html#docs-vfw-cnf-cds

Notes: 2020 June vDTF ONAP vFW CNF use case evolution

  • We lack of the use case automation scripts, however, there is very good documentation + postman collection
  • We leverage VNF flow in SO and still, we need to use dummy heat templates in the onboarding package
  • vFW use case requires dedicated k8s cluster with virtlet, ovn4k8s and multus
  • Data in AAI is still not synchronized with k8s
  • Status of instantiated resources is not monitored by SO and
  • vFW CNF Use case automation with robot scripts and use of modern VID UI
  • Support of Close Loop
  • https://jira.onap.org/browse/REQ-341 - CNF SO orchestration Enhancements
  • Potentially new use case: VNF + CNF Heterogeneous service and/or pure CNF (without a need of specific k8s cluster setup)

Orchestration of 5G CNFs using Multicloud K8s plugin

Presenter: Sandeep Sharma

  • Walkthrough of how ONAP was used to instantiate a 5G Core CNF.
  • More details & a demo are available in the Webinar that this team did

  • Did use SDC and MultiCloud K8S plugin, but did not use SO.  Did have one manual step.
  • Container image was in a local K8S repository, not bundled in the service package


Presenter: Michal Jagiello

Version 1.0 of the SDK was released and will be available using pip.

Presentation provided an overview of the project capabilities:

  • Communication and handling with ONAP services using HTTP/S APIs
  • High level of abstraction
  • Easy to use, even if you don't know what is possible "underneath"

SDK requires Python 3.7 or higher and was tested with ONAP Frankfurt.

  • Add handling for the macro flow
  • migrate onap_tests repository to pythonsdk_tests
  • Add close loop examples coming in next versions

 Frankfurt Post Mortem

Presenter : David McBride

 Review Frankfurt Schedule changes & pain points 

  •  number of shifts in schedule (not so much the total delay) raised concerns
  •  scope size (do we take in too much?) 
  •  very late avail of final dockers 
  •  use case not clear if they are leveraging or need more ONAP dev - cannot know until actually running it
  •  self release is painful, takes time for multi sub projects
  •  Lots of remaining open bugs at M4
  •  Observations on certificates, exceptions to milestones


Release more frequently VS time

  •  Move to a more continous approach
  •  Release at each milestone ? with working small steps
  •  At RC0 provide %age completed, which ones are not done yet?

5G & PNF Use Case Overview

  CNTT Track Key PointsChallengesNext Steps/Action Items
Performance (Joint with OPNFV)
  • Great Discussion around performance and it's relation to CNTT.
  • Discussion to be continued with Al Morton , Trevor Cooper, and Mark Beierl during CVC using Al proposed 4-tier structure (described below):
    • Functional tests lead to Performance tests of the functions.  A subset of the most important performance tests are elevated to Benchmark status (with more precise specifications of methods, etc.). Acceptance thresholds could be established for "Performance Conformance", if agreed.

  • Continue discussion in CVC.
  • Map 4-tier structure to CNTT.
Traceability Test Cases (Joint with OPNFV)
  • Great progress demonstrated by Cedric Ollivierto cover RA-1/RC-1 Requirements

Use cases of SDN solution
  • Interesting and detailed presentation by Ying Li and Shasha Guo of SDN implementations for several use cases like Traffic Mirroring and Routing Configuration, showing code snipets, network diagrams and parameter mappings

Field Trial Status (Joint with OPNFV)
  • Presentation by Cedric Ollivier - update on the CNTT Field Trial.  CNTT RC changelog from Baldy presented (9 out of 2000 single tests removed) - good outcome. Orange IAAS: 10 remaining single test failures, targeting mid-July to complete. RC is ready to use by vendors and operators.

Next CNTT OpenStack Release & Cyborg Acceleration Mgmt
  • Presentation on CNTT OpenStack Release selection by Pankaj Goyal et al, and second half by Shasha Guo on Cyborg Acceleration Mgmt.
  • OSTK Pike was selected in Paris, but the next version was selected by a formal process and against defined criteria, the process started at Baldy vF2F in April 2020.  Train met the selection criteria and is recommended as the next CNTT OSTK version. Recommendation: utilize Ussuri OSTK release for Cyborg API v2.0 service (as it is incompatible with Train). Upstream: Cyborg should fix their API in Train release as per OpenStack policy.
  • Discussion whether CNTT should jump straight to Ussuri to avoid back porting problems for Cyborg. An option for consideration for TSC (the only criterion not met by Ussuri is 6+ month requirement)
  • Shasha Guo and Ying Li on Cyborg acceleration: presented scenarios why we need to use Cyborg, and Cyborg enhancement requirements for CNTT.

As a result of the discussion, the next step will be to present an option of moving straight to Ussuri. Action on Pankaj Goyal

Cloud Software Validation - Part of OPNFV CIRV project Sridhar Rao

  • Work moving fast since June -2 Interns Joined! Ashwin and Parth.
  • Demo shows how validation works, run on Intel Pod 10.

Form of UI and exposure of results: many possibilities (REST, cache in X-testing, others)

PDF is a "big" PDF, includes many aspects beyond OPNFV PDF.

Today, checking Airship deployment and debug with logs (find root cause). Other deployments ??

Security Checks: Some tools in Functest, Ansible Security Hardening has possibilities, Cedric will have a look in Openstack.

By early August, should have Airship Manifest complete.

Results API will expand storage beyond current local storage, to X-testing, Test-API, etc.

K8s: Multi-Interface Container Network Benchmarking in VSPERF Sridhar Rao

Background information in Slides from April Event (links in the slides), Thanks to K8s Networking Experts!   This is Mostly a Hands-on DEMO!

  • Automated Cluster Setup complete, Using Intel Pod 12, Multus, Centos (dpdk-app-centos), T-rex Traffic Generator. Autoamtion handles the deployment of the cluser and CNI, AND the tooling can be used on existing clusters.
  • VSPERF tool provides the basic configuration capability, starting with OVS-DPDK, on Worker Node (DUT).
  • A second instance of VSPERF runs the Traffic Generator-Only, for Benchmarking search control and Results collection.
  • Results for OVS-DPDK show very low Throughput, we can see the bottleneck is a virtual port.
  • Next, test with SR-IOV: one virtual function (VF) per vNIC
  • Finally, test with VPP: Issue with support of vhost-user, had to use memif (interface or bridge modes are OK).  Problem with xconnect mode, l2fwd works ok.

Pod must be running DPDK, or other performance enhancing technology.

Still exploring CPU configurations (optimization).

Currently need to add flows in vSwitch manually.

Need Expert Help! Queue configuration on Virtual Ports! Also Hugepage configuration.

Using Ixia HW Traffic generator in very near future.

Will be running more comparison tests when satisfied with configurations.

Jeff Hartley offered to help!

OVP 2.0 Cloud Native Operator Panel

Moderator: Marc Price

  • Very Interactive panel Q&A: The Recording is the Canonical Source of Information!
  • Need CNTT specifications for infrastructure to line-up with CN workload needs: Integration tools to manage operate and maintain are needed
  • Opinion: CNF deployment is highly dependent on success in 2 areas: performance and operations.
  • CNF Testbed is a showcase for how different CN elements can work together and offer services.
  • Different levels of Services: Examples include Self-Healing, OAM: CNF Conformance requires construction according to Cloud-Native Principles. Quality of Service should be included.
  • What value can OVP 2.0 provide to Operators?  And what can we learn from previous OVP efforts?
    • Need to certify that Operator's Infrastructure is good enough  to run CN functions/workloads. Need to understand the demarcation between Infrastructure, Operations, and CNFs. Reduce Integration testing and the time involved.
    • Need more than a "standard", only a piece of paper!  Also, CN-principles emphasize automation of operations so that systems don't have to be watched 24x7 (babysitting).
    • Can OVP reduce Integration and Conformance testing by 10%? - then that is sufficient value to use it. Operators have turned into integrators to use multiple vendor products.
  • How does OVP 2.0 align with other projects?
    • CNTT for requirements, Also ETSI NFV
    • OPNFV for benchmarking/performance
    • CNCF for workload cloud-native-ness
    • ONAP for alignment on service creation with CNFs
    • TIP using CNTT specifications for deployment
    • It's more and more difficult to find the right forum - too many! Fragmentation will slow-us down.
  • Value of OVP is the Meaning of the Badge!  UL (Underwriter's Laboratories) is a an example - you won't get shocked when you plug an electrical appliance into the wall.
  • Most CNCF projects are about Rigorous Testing, also Project Graduation provides assurance. Long legacy of best practices for application development. May use other Communites: FD.io does it all day, for VPP... Others have a wider view (See previous OPNFV K8s Benchmarking Session).
  • Look into more for the badging program
  • We get out of it what we put into it, and recognize that each operator will still need to do their own testing! Cover LCF and common functions and let operators do the rest.
  • Are there usecases that badging is NOT covering? bring them in!

Joint Topic: OPNFV and CNTT: OPNFV Release Process 2.0 JOINT with CNTT David McBride

  • Integration-Test is a community role, ask community projects to implement verification tests for CI, then it is done.
  • Integration-Test is covered by the CI and Jenkins -
  • Leverage current gating
  • Integration Test is different from normal CI and Jenkins checks, This form of Gating is a dependent on CNTT requirements
  • CNTT must put developers into the process now, to implement the requirements, there may be difficulties when dealing with a single requirement at a time.
  • Some feel that the Requirements Sub-committee is too much overhead.
  • Others feel the Requirements SC provides the necessary Triage to reduce overhead on the Project teams.
  •  Need more CNTT input, if possible.

Requirements Vetting Process

Finding more time to close on this discussion:  Proposal is to re-allocate time from Thursday's Agenda, Joint Topic Right after the 30 minute Break!

Additional Notes/Questions:

What Artifacts are we Releasing?

  • Tool Documentation (always)
  • Integrated test automation for Conformance, Functional and other Requirements

ODL Usability Review

A quick usability review of the OpenDaylight Usability was covered in this session including what works well, what does not (development & deployment challenges). This was followed up with suggestions for improvements - from a low hanging fruit to bigger architecture improvements like a more loosely coupled platform. 

ODL Project Status

The discussion concentrated around how to get more developers on boarded. There were many suggestions including having a dedicated public face for helping new developers. A key point that was made was: 

  • Need more clear messaging to the users (companies) that if you are consuming ODL, to please contribute upstream X hours per day or week to help resolve the technical debt.

Service Mesh for RBAC and security PoC

presenters: Sylvain Desbureaux Krzysztof Opasiak

Service Mesh PoC will require just few changes on the component:

  • add an option to disable AAF integration on user management part if any
  • add an option to disable HTTPs
  • retrieve header and pass them if they are doing subrequest

Model Driven Configuration and Persistency Service PoC Deep Dive

Presenter: Tony Finnerty

YANG is Primary input and native language of the CPS
Model driven safe access to data
POC Target: Read/write persisted Configuration Management data

  • Can we re-use / extend existing Yang Parser in SDC?
  • Can we use Yoghurt framework for Yang (de-)Serialization to maps?

OpenDaylight Track

Key Points


 Next Steps/Action Items
Sync OpenDaylight releases and LFN infra migrationsOpen discussion on how we can improve the LFN infra migration and ODL release cycles. Those migrations affect the overall efficiency of the community but not only.
  • migrations not at all synchronized with the release schedules
  • migrations mis-execution affects every project
  • python version forced to 3.5  obsoleted after only 2 months during the Sodium SR2 release. When possible, lfn-tools must support several versions of python and not impose it.
  • migrations are not automated. This also results in unexpected referencing problems for potential new contributors
  • more transparency on LFN infra migrations - can be achieved with more non-LFN contributors
  • TSC should be able to block LFN migrations
  • control-loop between users / TSC and TAC/LFN

  • Presented OPNFV - Kuberef project proposal. The proposal will be edited (one sentence to address the point in the Challenge column) and OPNFV TSC Wiki-vote for Project Creation started today! 
  • How to make sure requirements in the newly created project are taken from CNTT.
  • More discussion in RI-2 Calls to advance progress.
RC-2 DeepDive

Bill Mulligan led the session on RC-2 Deep Dive

  • Align all efforts to a single outcome and agree on one way of doing it.
  • Currently the framework mixes a general what and why of the tools showing how they are useful testing tools. I do not see the high-level RC principles are listed.

  • Scott Steinbrueck to arrange a meeting with RI/RC leads, Taylor Carpenter Gergely Csatari to agree on a single scheme.
CNTT/OPNFV Release Sync
  • CNTT/OPNFV Releases Sync 

CNTT Security
  • Status on RA-1 security
  • Evolution planed for Baraque release
  • For security  testing, tests and tools available
  • Expand RA-1 security chapter on system hardening, image security, monitoring and audit
  • Review RM requirements, rephrase requirements not testable or too genric
  • Continue the analysis of ONAP requirements relevant for CNTT
  • The challenge will be the integration of the identified security tests for automated testing.

OPNFV TrackKey PointsChallengesNext Steps/Action Items

OPNFV INFRA Work Group Update Trevor Bramwell Sawyer Bergeron

  • Need quotes for new machines at UNH - IOL and Oregon
  • INFRA is working with various projects to transition to Lab As A Service, rather than Static assignments.
  • CI/CD Evolution Options - OPNFV is different from other LFN projects (but needs update?)
    • Migration plan includes a Proof of Concept phase
  • Lab As A Service review - booking for various LFN projects. Look around at site: labs.lfnetworking.org
    • LaaS New Features - PTLs can define complete HW configuration, network configuration, merge configuration
    • LaaS Quick booking Improvements
    • Plus CNTT-ready! additional requirements for networking: greater uplinks, and additional storage
    • Anyone with LFID can use
    • New features planned: booking transfers between users, analytics dashboard, Jenkins integration
Lab folks are seeking HW quotes, but this has stalled (for many reasons that seem to be related to COVID-19). Need to Figure out a way to get quotes before the funding goes away!

Second Session of Joint Topic: OPNFV and CNTT: OPNFV Release Process 2.0 JOINT with CNTT David McBride

  • Project Release Plans Template - Each project will describe and document their Artifacts/Deliverables
    • OPNFV's project plans have varied in degree of detail
  • OPNFV TSC has the responsibility to establish the Release Process
  • Requirements Vetting is still a sticking point
    • Release requirments are part of OPNFV Release process. Full Stop
  • Requirments will come from CNTT, AND Openstack, ETSI NFV, and OPNFV participants.
  • There are already LOTS of requirments to Vet that intend to be part of OPNFV's next release.
