It starts with basic design questions. Sorry, I am always late..
I want to implement the iSCSI initiator as a CAM SIM driver. I was pointed
to the umass driver which is a "translator" between SCSI and USB commands.
The developers handbook gives me a good introduction how to write a SIM
But how to establish the connection, especially the authorization? I am

developers of nfssvc don't seem to be lucky about this..
I don't feel I have the experience to decide this so I would
