Subject: Re: [net-next v3 0/4] tipc: add more features to TIPC encryption

From: Tuong Lien <>

> This series adds some new features to TIPC encryption:
> - Patch 1 ("tipc: optimize key switching time and logic") optimizes the
> code and logic in preparation for the following commits.
> - Patch 2 ("tipc: introduce encryption master key") introduces support
> of 'master key' for authentication of new nodes and key exchange. A
> master key can be set/changed by user via netlink (eg. using the same
> 'tipc node set key' command in iproute2/tipc).
> - Patch 3 ("tipc: add automatic session key exchange") allows a session
> key to be securely exchanged between nodes as needed.
> - Patch 4 ("tipc: add automatic rekeying for encryption key") adds
> automatic 'rekeying' of session keys a specific interval. The new key
> will be distributed automatically to peer nodes, so become active then.
> The rekeying interval is configurable via netlink as well.
> v2: update the "tipc: add automatic session key exchange" patch to fix
> "implicit declaration" issue when built without "CONFIG_TIPC_CRYPTO".
> v3: update the patches according to David comments by using the
> "genl_info->extack" for messages in response to netlink user config
> requests.

Series applied, thanks.
