Understanding OPNFV 79 Projects around documentation and security: Project Description Documentation The main task of this project is to create the required documentation for each release. Additionally, the project also develops guidelines and tooling for documentation across all OPNFV projects and maintains documentation libraries. Moon (Security management) The Moon project is in the process of working with the upstream OpenStack Keystone and Congress projects to improve the isolation, protection and interaction between VNFs. The project does so by identifying gaps in OpenStack and ODL and contributing features to upstream projects around authorization, logging, network enforcement, storage enforcement, and so on. Moon also enables OPNFV Copper to ensure that security policies are being met. OPNFV has also received the Core Infrastructure Initiative Best Practices Badge. Core Infrastructure Initiative (CII) is a Linux Foundation project to fund and support critical open source projects. Their goal is to fortify key projects to prevent security vulnerabilities such as Heartbleed. CII issues Best Practices Badge to showcase an open source project's commitment to security. The above projects are all executed by small teams that are generally distributed around the world. Each project has a project technical lead (PTL), committers, and contributors. Teams work year-round, communicating via collaboration tools (described in Chapter 6), weekly meetings, and IRC. To engender periods of intensive collaboration, there is a design summit once a year concurrent with the OPNFV summit. Each year there are also multiple hackfests, at which team members can collaborate face-to-face. These are usually concurrent with plugfests (see Chapter 8). Project Analytics To learn how these projects are doing, a variety of statistics about each project are available on the OPNFV analytics site.
