  • Adding Metadata to the Arista vEOS Vagrant Box
    This post addresses a (mostly) cosmetic issue with the current way that Arista distributes its Vagrant box for vEOS. I say “mostly cosmetic” because while the Vagrant box for vEOS is perfectly functional if you use it via Arista’s instructions, adding metadata as I explain here provides a small bit of additional flexibility should you need multiple versions of the vEOS box on your system.

  • Correlating OVS and Guest Domain Interfaces
    I’ve written a fair amount about Open vSwitch (OVS), including some articles on using it with KVM and Libvirt. One thing I haven’t discussed in such environments, though, is the potential challenge of mapping network interfaces in a guest domain to the corresponding OVS interface (for the purposes of troubleshooting, for example). There is no single command that will provide a guest-to-OVS interface map (as far as I know), but this information is easily gathered using a couple commands.

  • Google Drops a SHA-1 Collision Course
    The writing has been on the wall for SHA-1 for quite some time. The cryptographic hash has been around over a decade now, but organizations have started to move away from it as more sophisticated options became available (SHA-256, SHA-3, etc). Back in 2013, researchers published theoretical approach to generating a collision. Now with the help of Google's computation grunt and additional resources, were able to actually generate a collision in the wild.
