BIRD-LG

Overview

This is a looking glass for the Internet Routing Daemon "Bird".

Software is split in two parts:

  • lgproxy.py:

    It must be installed and started on all bird nodes. It act as a proxy to make traceroute and bird query on the node. Access restriction to this web service can be done in file "lgproxy.cfg". Two access restriction methods can be configured: based on source IP address or based on a shared secret. Both methods can be used at the same time.

  • lg.py:

    This is the frontend, a web based UI that request informations to all lgproxy.py nodes. The domain and the list of all bird nodes can be done.

Installation

The web service (lg.py) depends on:

  • python-flask >= 0.8
  • python-dnspython
  • python-pydot
  • graphviz
  • whois

The proxy running on routers (lgproxy.py) depends on:

  • python-flask >= 0.8
  • traceroute
  • ping

Each service can be embedded in any webserver by following regular python-flask configuration. It is also possible to run the services directly with python for developping / testing:

python2 lg.py
python2 lgproxy.py

Systemd unit files are provided in the init/ subdirectory.

Configuration

On your routers, copy lgproxy.cfg.example to lgproxy.cfg and edit the values.

On the web host, copy lg.cfg.example to lg.cfg and edit the values.
