Netty project - an event-driven asynchronous network application framework
Java C Shell C++ Groovy Protocol Buffer
Branch: master

Add support for RFC2385 on Linux


There are protocols (BGP, SXP), which are typically deployed with TCP
MD5 authentication to protect sessions from being hijacked/torn down by
third parties. This facility is not available on most operating systems,
but is typically present on Linux.


- add a new EpollChannelOption, which is write-only
- teach Epoll(Server)SocketChannel to track which addresses have keys
- teach Native how to set the MD5 signature keys for a socket


Users of the native-epoll transport can set MD5 signature keys and thus
leverage RFC-2385 protection on TCP connections.

Netty Project

Netty is an asynchronous event-driven network application framework for rapid development of maintainable high performance protocol servers & clients.


How to build

For the detailed information about building and developing Netty, please visit the developer guide. This page only gives very basic information.

You require the following to build Netty:

Note that this is build-time requirement. JDK 5 (for 3.x) or 6 (for 4.0+) is enough to run your Netty-based application.

Branches to look

The 'master' branch is where the development of the latest major version lives on. The development of all other versions takes place in each branch whose name is identical to <majorVersion>.<minorVersion>. For example, the development of 3.9 and 4.0 resides in the branch '3.9' and the branch '4.0' respectively.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
