VyCenter Alpha Stage Announcement - VyOS Web Interface

Hi guys,

I’m developing a frontend in early stages. Any help / comments will be welcome!

VyOS frontend made in Python / Django using VyOS new 1.3 API server

It will work with a single VyoS server or to multiple VyOS servers, so datacenters which do not want share same firewall to different customers will not need to install several vycenter to each customer. That’s why the name vycenter.

features

in alpha stage we’re going to provide just essential device config, interfaces and firewall, as proof of concencept, as well config module basic cruds (users, groups and vyOS Servers)

interfaces module

  • list interfaces - alpha
  • show interface - alpha
  • unset/set firewall interface - todo
  • change interface parameters - todo

firewall module

  • basic firewall rules creation proof of concept - done
  • basic list firewall rules - done
  • basic add firewall rules - done
  • basic edit firewall rules - done
  • basic firewall create - done
  • change firewall rules order - todo
  • delete firewall rules - todo

other modules - todo

  • ospf
  • bgp
  • ipsec
  • openvpn
  • reports (maybe collecting using snmp)
  • ssh management
  • system login managament
  • nat
  • dhcp servers
  • static routes

config module

  • vycenter users crud - todo
  • vycenter groups crud - todo
  • vyos instance using database - done
  • full vyos instances crud - todo
  • add new VyoS instances test connection while adding - todo
  • add new VyoS instances test connection all servers crontab - todo
  • associate groups to VyOS instances

dockerhub

latest vycenter is being autobuilt at dockerhub

docker pull robertoberto/vycenter

docker composer

Right now we are using db.sqlite3, but I used composer so we can change to mySQL if needed.

docker-compose build
docker-compose  up

manual install instructions

setup virtual env and pip requirements

virtualenv env
source env/bin/activate
pip3 install -r requirements.txt

setup initial database

cd vycenter
python3 manage.py migrate

run webserver

python3 manage.py runserver

access webpage

setup vyos new instance

  • click on Add new instance
  • configure vyos services like explained at docs
  • click on List Instances
  • click on Test Connection

List VyOS Instances

List Firewall

This looks very interesting! If I understand this correctly, you will be able to create firewall rules, or other configuration snippets, that will be able to push to multiple devices?
For instance in a datacenter where multiple vyos routers share the same firewall groups and rules.

Yes, that’s right. Our users cases will be:

  • datacenter which want to offer Firewall to multiple customers
  • individual installations are supported too and are not harder to implement than multi VyOS instances

We think about ran VyControl inside VyOS or directly as Python django runserver or inside a Docker if we add Docker function inside VyOS for whom want to enable

VyControl: VyOS Web Frontend

VyControl is a single frontend interface to manage a single or multiple VyoS servers. Only download VyOS Rolling Release, since VyControl needs the latest VyOS API.

Still in 2020, the most important functionalities that until then were only possible through CLI (command line interface), will be possible through a friendly and web interface developed in Django / Python.

Standalone VyoS installations can now have a control panel.

Datacenter installations with multiple VyoS will be able to offer their customers (with users, groups and granular control) firewall as a service

VyControl 20.05.10 - released

Release Description:

Full zone based firewall features.

If managing multiple VyOS instances/routers, it’s becoming somekind of “SDN controller”?

This is a really interesting project. Looking into code, it seems to use django (which is fine) and allow management by hand for instances.

This is nice for smaller environments. Are there thoughts about also allow management of “many” vyos instances in an automatic way?
