https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=271793 Bug ID: 271793 Summary: virtio: doesn't implement a vsock driver Product: Base System Version: CURRENT Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Only Me Priority: --- Component: kern Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org Reporter: firstname.lastname@example.org from: https://wiki.qemu.org/Features/VirtioVsock virtio-vsock is a host/guest communications device. It allows applications in the guest and host to communicate. This can be used to implement hypervisor services and guest agents. - POSIX Sockets API so existing networking applications require minimal modification (unlike virtio-serial char devices) - Listen sockets can accept connections from multiple clients (unlike virtio-serial char devices) - No address configuration required inside the guest - No Ethernet or TCP/IP for a reduced attack surface for hypervisor services - Can be used with VMs that have no network interfaces Sockets are created with the AF_VSOCK address family. The SOCK_STREAM socket type is currently implemented for in-order, guaranteed stream semantics. The actual 1.1 spec is at: https://docs.oasis-open.org/virtio/virtio/v1.1/csprd01/virtio-v1.1-csprd01.html#x1-39000010 -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
