Description Grover Chou 2018-04-19 07:51:33 UTC
I use bird[1] on openSUSE to manage BGP routing.
One of my peer using TCP MD5 Signature[2] to protect BGP session.
But it requires MD5SIG enabled in the kernel.
I did a simple check to be sure that this was not enabled in
openSUSE Tumbleweed (even Leap series).

    grep MD5SIG /boot/config-4.16.1-1-default

So please consider its coverage.

I'm going to enable TCP_MD5SIG in master and stable branches. It's too late
for Leap 15.0, though, as it would change kABI which is already frozen.
Comment 2 Michal Kubeček 2018-05-07 08:25:42 UTC
CONFIG_TCP_MD5SIG is now enabled in master and stable branches (so that the
change is going to propagate into Tumbleweed package soon). It's also going to
be enabled in openSUSE Leap 15.1 kernel (not 15.0, though).
