Attention: Operating System Deprecation Notice
Support for the Ubuntu operating system and CentOS 6 has been deprecated. CDRouter systems running on Ubuntu or CentOS 6 will now see warning messages during installation and in the ‘start’ log of a test run.
Support for both of these operating systems will be officially removed with the next major version of CDRouter (12.0). Please contact email@example.com for additional information and assistance in migrating to a supported operating system.
All CDRouter systems will require the CentOS 7 operating system in order to install CDRouter 12.0 and beyond.
CDRouter 11.7 Build 1
November 14, 2019
New Features and Enhancements
Automatic decryption of SSL payloads
CDRouter now has the ability to automatically decrypt SSL payloads for all managed stacks on any configured test interface. This makes it possible to inspect encrypted traffic directly within the log file viewer and packet capture viewer without having to export the capture file, install decryption keys, and set up decryption rules in external tools such as Wireshark.
In addition, CDRouter’s CloudShark integration will automatically include and apply the necessary decryption keys when capture files are pushed to a remote CloudShark instance.
Note that this feature supports decryption of SSL for protocols on known ports only. [ch493]
New testvar for specifying expected RSN pairwise ciphers
The new testvar wifiBeaconRsnCipher can be used to specify the list of RSN pairwise ciphers advertised by the DUT in its wifi beacons. This testvar can be used in conjunction with the existing wifiBeaconWpaCipher testvar for DUT’s operating in mixed modes that support both WPA and RSN.
Note that the group cipher is always expected to be the same for both WPA and RSN modes. As a result there is no need for a separate RSN specific testvar for the expected group cipher. [ch1143]
Updates for Broadband Forum TR-469
The usp_conformance test module has been updated with 98 new test cases. With these new tests CDRouter now contains a complete implementation of the Broadband Forum’s TR-469 Conformance Test Plan for User Services Platform Agents.
Display of additional 802.11 header information for each client on every interval
During performance throughput tests CDRouter will now provide additional 802.11 information per reporting interval for each wireless client in use.
For 802.11n clients, CDRouter provides information about the HT characteristics:
chan-width=40 rx-bitrate=364.5 tx-bitrate=450.0 signal=-39 rx-short-gi=0 tx-short-gi=1 noise=-95 rx-mcs=22 tx-mcs=23
For 802.11ac clients, CDRouter provides information about the VHT characteristics:
chan-width=80 rx-bitrate=1300.0 tx-bitrate=975.0 signal=-44 rx-short-gi=1 tx-short-gi=1 noise=-101 rx-vht-mcs=7 tx-vht-mcs=7 rx-vht-nss=4 tx-vht-nss=3
Testvars added to this release:
- wifiBeaconRsnCipher - New testvar for specifying the RSN pairwise ciphers that the DUT is expected to advertise. [ch1143]

New Test Modules and Test Cases
Broadband Forum TR-469 USP Conformance Test Module
MODULE: usp_conformance DESCRIPTION: Broadband Forum TR-469 USP conformance tests TEST CASES: 98
Resolved an issue associated with properly setting the wireless regulatory domain using the testvar wirelessCountryCode on NTA1000 systems that utilize the ath10k wireless driver. [ch1011]
The testvar wirelessCountryCode now defaults to the value
auto. When set to
autoCDRouter will automatically determine and set the wireless regulatory domain used during a test run based on the locale settings of the operating system. Note that the wireless regulatory domain cannot be modified by CDRouter on non-CentOS systems. [ch1011]
The testvar httpServerIp can now be set to either an IPv4 or an IPv6 address. [ch566]
CDRouter’s integrated packet viewer has been upgraded to TraceFrame version 1.2.1, which includes fixes for a few minor packet decode display issues. [ch770]
Resolved a fatal error that would occur if a test package using a wireless interface is queued while another test package using the same interface in wireless on the WAN mode is actively running. [ch1760]
Resolved an issue with the dns_rfc5625_14, dns_rfc5625_15, and dns_rfc5625_17 test cases. These tests now listen for DNS queries from the DUT on all four DNS servers, if configured. Previously these tests would only listen on the first two DNS servers. [ch1634]
CDRouter now displays the target address of received Neighbor Solicitation and Neighbor Advertisement messages directly in the log. [ch1660]
The dhcpv6-pd test module can now be run in IPv6 WAN unnumbered mode. [ch1748]
Updated the descriptions of the tr69_140 through tr69_170 test cases to clarify that the tr69_140 and tr69_150 test cases verify the
UploadRPC as defined in Amendment 2 or earlier of the TR-069 specification whereas tr69_160 and tr69_170 verify the new
UploadRPC as defined in Amendment 3 and later versions of the specification. [ch1417]
Resolved a potential fatal error with XMPP based connection requests. [ch1080]
The tr69_101, tr69_hearbeat_2, tr69_heartbeat_4, and ir181_test_5.1.1 tests now utilize the value of the tr69MinPeriodicInform testvar value when configuring the periodic inform interval on the DUT. Previously these tests relied on fixed values that may not be supported on all devices. [ch1282]
Resolved an issue where successful XMPP connection requests were being reported as failures and causing tests to fail. [ch1596]
Updated the 5_035_redirect_in_session test case to abort rather than continue if a CWMP session fails to start. This patch has been reported upstream to the UNH-IOL as well. [ch537]
Resolved a fatal error in the 5_120_xmpp_incorrect_jabber_id. This patch has been reported upstream to the UNH-IOL as well. [ch1812]
Resolved a potential fatal error in the ACS_XMPP_send_connection_request test case. This patch has been reported upstream to the UNH-IOL as well. [ch1420]
CDRouter’s CoAP DTLS implementation will now send a TLS alert message when closing a session. This notifies the remote peer that the session has been closed. [ch880]
The usp_30 test case procedure and cleanup process have been modified to determine which firmware slot is active at the start of the test and revert the original firmware to the same slot at the end of the test. [ch1021]
- CDRouter ICS will now return the TTL of the upstream resolver rather than a fixed TTL of 0 when resolving DNS queries using the system resolver. [ch490]
CDRouter 11.7 Build 2
December 12, 2019
New Features and Enhancements
New SIP ALG test cases
Three new SIP ALG test cases have been added to verify that the DUT properly handles outbound SIP calls with multiple DHCP LAN clients that do not register a port. The new tests are cdrouter_sip_201, cdrouter_sip_tcp_201, and ipv6_sip_201, and verify this behavior over UDP/IPv4, TCP/IPv4, and UDP/IPv6, respectively.
As part of this work, CDRouter’s SIP client behavior has also been modified. CDRouter’s SIP client will now omit the port number from its SIP headers if the default port value is in use (5060/5061). Previously, the port number was always included even the default port was used.
New Test Modules and Test Cases
New SIP ALG test cases
TEST: cdrouter_sip_201 MODULE: sip-alg DESCRIPTION: Verify outbound SIP calls with multiple DHCP LAN clients without registering a port
TEST: cdrouter_sip_tcp_201 MODULE: sip-alg-tcp DESCRIPTION: Verify outbound SIP calls with multiple DHCP LAN clients (TCP) without registering a port
New SIP ALG test case
TEST: ipv6_sip_201 MODULE: sip-v6 DESCRIPTION: Verify outbound SIPv6 calls with multiple DHCP LAN clients without registering a port
- Added the DUT’s LAN IP to the list of excluded MAC addresses in the cdrouter_dos_30 and cdrouter_dos_32 test cases. This resolves a potential ARP conflict in certain test scenarios. [ch2348]
- Updated the option type used in the ipv6_basic_10 test case from Type 07 (0x07) to Type 17 (0x11). This change is consistent with the option type used in Revision 5.0.0 of the IPv6 Ready Core Protocols Test Specification. [ch1923]
- The iperf process scheduling algorithm used by CDRouter has been modified and improved for compatibility with newer operating systems and kernels. This change impacts only CentOS 7 and 8 systems. [ch1662]
- Updated the test descriptions for the docsis_firewall_100, docsis_firewall_101, docsis_firewall_110, ipv6_docsis_firewall_100, ipv6_docsis_firewall_101, and ipv6_docsis_firewall_110 to reference the correct testvars for specifying the expected open and closed TCP and UDP ports for the DOSCIS interface firewall. [ch2087]
Pktsrc API Notifications
IPv4_reconfigurewould send a gratuitous ARP when changing a stack’s IPv4 address while
IPv4_set s ipwould not. CDRouter’s behavior has been unified such that by default, both methods now send a gratuitous ARP, while also adding options to disable this new behavior if it is not desired.
IPv4_setnow supports an optional
noarpargument if setting the ip field, i.e.
IPv4_set s ip <ip> noarp. This change is meant to be symmetric with the
nodadargument supported by the
IPv6_setcall which works similarly.
