DANOS 2009 released

We are excited to announce the third release of DANOS, the open source Network Operating System (NOS). DANOS is part of the Linux Foundation and based upon AT&T's Vyatta NOS.

DANOS 2009 has many new features and numerous bug/security fixes. Of particular interest is the:

  • integration of the nDPI Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) engine into the match criteria for firewall rules,

  • introduction of FRR's Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS) routing protocol

  • support for protocol-dependent mapping for Souce Network Address Translation (SNAT)

  • ability to apply firewall rules to all router originated packets

  • enhanced observability into the behaviour of the stateless/stateful firewall, zone-based firewalls and NAT

  • upgrade of the Linux kernel to 5.4 and DPDK to 19.11,
