We're working on specification tasks.
We completed backend spec; including specifying collector policy for
both inputs and net-tests.
Stephen reviewed the spec:
Two points of discussion:
S 2.5 how we publish reports - Ooni suggested scp, but MLab may be
different. We should leave that out of the backend spec, because it
depends on the backend infrastructure.
How will the test_helper learn effective probe IP address? Stephen
and Arturo realize they misunderstood the issue, and this should
already be handled by ooni (see:
discussed alternatives with Arturo.
Why is the collector exposed by https and tor hidden service is
answered in the spec.
Added a feature which exposes inputs / decks from the backend.
Added a "bouncer" in the spec which aids in discovery for test helpers
and collectors. This is similar to mlab-ns. Some aspects might be
implemented by mlab-ns. There's a need for ooni to provide
requirements for mlab-ns. Stephen will review that spec and send
questions about "bouncer" to understand how similar it is to mlab-ns.
We improved some charts: backend dataflow diagram. Stephen will do
something similar for MLab.
Nathan asks: Should the ooni-spec and ooni-probe wiki be merged?
Arturo suggests we (Arturo & Aaron) should consolidate ooni-spec,
should migrate to the wiki.
Nathan gives a Threat Model presentation. That's me! -so I didn't
take notes on that section. It was an overview of this wiki:
As is apparently now our custom: "Toodles!"
