CDRouter 12.24 Release Notes

release-note version 13.8

CDRouter 12.24 February 10, 2022


New Features

  • USP: The CDRouter USP expansion now includes a full implementation of version 1.1 of TP-469, the Conformance Test Plan for User Services Platform Agents, which was released by the Broadband Forum at the end of January 2022. The UNH-IOL validated 12.24 to be used for certification. Thanks to Ben Patton and the entire UNH-IOL IP team.

    This is a major update to the usp_conformance test module containing many new test cases and updates based on changes to the test plan. For a complete list of changes associated with TP-469 version 1.1, please see the additional notes below.

    All users actively seeking TP-469 certification should upgrade to CDRouter 12.24 as soon as possible. More information on USP self-testing certification with CDRouter may be found here.

Change Log

  • CDRouter: All test cases in mac-filter test module have been deprecated and will be removed in the next release of CDRouter. These test cases require LAN clients with static MAC addresses which is becoming less common in modern networks where most clients implement MAC randomization for privacy. The following tests will be removed in the next release.[sc15532]

    • cdrouter_mac_filter_1
    • cdrouter_mac_filter_2
    • cdrouter_mac_filter_3
    • cdrouter_mac_filter_4
    • cdrouter_mac_filter_5
    • cdrouter_mac_filter_6

  • CDRouter: The following testvars have also been deprecated due the deprecation of the mac-filter test module. [sc15532]

  • CDRouter: CDRouter will now set the tuned kernel parameter to throughput-performance during installation instead of setting it during start. [sc15020]

  • CDRouter: CDRouter now supports the current DynDNS update URL /v3/update in addition to the legacy URL /nic/update. [sc13769]

  • TR-069: CDRouter’s integrated STUN server now returns an error code of 431 when an invalid MESSAGE-INTEGRITY field is received, as specified by RFC 3489 which is required by TR-069 Annex G. [sc14218]

  • CDRouter: Resolved a test interface selection error that may result in a fatal error when running the cdrouter_ipsecpt_11, cdrouter_ipsecpt_120, cdrouter_sip_71, cdrouter_sip_72, or cdrouter_sip_73 test cases. [sc11258]

  • Security: The ET Open ruleset shipped with the CDRouter Security expansion has been updated to version 9943. [sc15261]

  • TR-069: The ACS and ACS download server certificates included with previous releases have expired. New ACS and ACS download server certificates and the associated intermediate and root CAs have are now available and have been included in this release. [sc15317]

  • TR-069: Resolved an issue with Device:2 implementations when the acsCreatePortMapOnIGD is enabled and used to create port mappings on the IGD. [sc14544]

  • TR-069: Resolved a fatal error in the tr69_27 test case after a failed connection request. [sc14889]

  • TR-069: Updated the logging in the tr143_http_3 and tr143_http_13 test cases to report TotalBytes(Sent|Received) instead of the test file size.[sc14806]

  • USP: The USP certificates shipped with previous releases of CDRouter will expire on February 18, 2022 and have been replaced by a new set of certificates that expire in February of 2023. [sc15142]

  • USP: A log message is now printed whenever the MQTT agent is unsubscribed. [sc13392]

  • USP: Removed Object references ending with ‘.’ per R-ARC.7 in TR-369. [sc15382]

  • USP: Updated the usp_30 test case to use the uspRebootTimeout testvar instead of the uspNotificationTimeout testvar. [sc15120]

  • USP: Added tests usp_annex_a_50 through usp_annex_a_67 for verifying BulkData functionality over MQTT. [sc15160]

  • USP: Added tests usp_annex_a_70 through usp_annex_a_76 for verifying ForceCollection() functionality. [sc15160]

Notices

  • CDRouter install error on CentOS 8: All NTA1000v7 systems are now eligible for an operating system upgrade from CentOS 8 to Rocky Linux 8. This upgrade is required because CentOS 8 has reached End-of-Life status. In addition, certain CentOS 8 repositories have recently moved leading to errors which prevent the installation of CDRouter. To resolve this issue, all NTA1000v7 users must migrate to Rocky Linux 8 as soon as possible.

    We have developed a comprehensive migration guide that makes this process easy and fast with no loss of CDRouter data. Please contact support@qacafe.com with any questions or concerns and let us know when you have successfully completed the migration.

  • NTA1000 rail kits now available: We now have sliding rack rail kits for NTA1000v6 and NTA1000v7 systems! Please contact support@qacafe.com for more information.

  • Config upgrades: CDRouter 12.24 includes many new features and configuration testvars. Config files may be easily upgraded to include all new CDRouter 12.24 testvars using the config upgrade utility.
