TLS is fast becoming a critical networking protocol in enterprise and cloud. Open source projects such as Nginx, HAProxy or Envoy need to implement their own socket-based SSL layer as TLS is a must-have feature. It causes so much duplicate work in industry.
VPP fundamentally changes this programming model as it moves the TLS implementation from the applications to the socket.
Our presentation firstly introduce TLS design in VPP, and then introduce the work we did to apply VPP stack to Nginx in TLS. We have integrated Nginx with both VPP communication library(VCL) and VPP LD_PRELOAD. VCL layer is application TLS aware solution, and LD_PRELOAD is to provide to the total transparent solution to Nginx. Our presentation summarizes the work and provide the guidance how to use VPP user space for application.
