NetworkPkg Getting Started Guide

Features List

IPv6 network stack

  • NetworkPkg/Ip6Dxe - Ip6 driver, which produces
EFI_IP6_PROTOCOL  
EFI_IP6_CONFIG_PROTOCOL
  • NetworkPkg/Udp6Dxe - Udp6 driver, which produces
EFI_UDP6_PROTOCOL
  • NetworkPkg/TcpDxe - TCP combo driver, which produces
EFI_TCP4_PROTOCOL
EFI_TCP6_PROTOCOL

Note: There are two TCP drivers in EDK II, either Tcp4Dxe or TcpDxe could be used, but they should not be used at the same time.

  • NetworkPkg/Dhcp6Dxe - DHCP6 driver, which produces
EFI_DHCP6_PROTOCOL
  • NetworkPkg/Mtftp6Dxe - MTFTP6 driver, which produces
EFI_MTFTP6_PROTOCOL

IPsec

  • NetworkPkg/IpSecDxe - Ipsec driver, which produces
EFI_IPSEC2_PROTOCOL
EFI_IPSEC_CONFIG_PROTOCOL
  1. Supported features in IPsec:
  • Security Protocols: Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP)
  • IPsec Mode: Transport/Tunnel mode
  • Encryption Algorithm: 3DES-CBC, AES-CBC
  • Authentication Algorithm: HMAC_SHA1_96
  • Authentication Method: Pre-shared Key, X509 Certificates
  1. After IPsec is enabled in both side, all inbound and outbound IP packet are processed by IPsec.

PXE

  • NetworkPkg/UefiPxeBcDxe - PXE driver, which produces
EFI_LOAD_FILE_PROTOCOL
EFI_PXE_BASE_CODE_PROTOCOL

Note: this driver supports both IPv4 and IPv6 network stack, and can't co-work with the UefiPxeBcDxe driver in MdeModulePkg.

iSCSI

  • NetworkPkg/IScsiDxe - iSCSi driver, which produces
EFI_ISCSI_INITIATOR_NAME_PROTOCOL
EFI_EXT_SCSI_PASS_THRU_PROTOCOL
EFI_AUTHENTICATION_INFO_PROTOCOL

Note: this driver supports both IPv4 and IPv6 network stack, and can't co-work with the IScsiDxe driver in MdeModulePkg.

DNS

  • NetworkPkg/DnsDxe - DNS driver, which produces
EFI_DNS4_PROTOCOL
EFI_DNS6_PROTOCOL

TLS

  • NetworkPkg/TlsDxe - TLS driver, which produces
EFI_TLS_PROTOCOL
EFI_TLS_CONFIGURATION_PROTOCOL

Note: TlsDxe driver takes advantage of OpenSLL library, including BaseCryptLib and TlsLib. So, TLS feature highly depends on the OpenSSL building. To enable this feature, please follow the instructions found in the file "Patch-HOWTO.txt" located in CryptoPkg\Library\OpensslLib to enable the OpenSSL building first.

  • NetworkPkg/TlsAuthConfigDxe - TLS certificates configuration driver, which provides the UI to support the required certificate configuration.

HTTP/HTTPS Boot

  • NetworkPkg/HttpDxe - HTTP driver, which produces
EFI_HTTP_PROTOCOL

Note: HttpDxe driver consumes TlsDxe driver to support HTTPS feature. The HTTP instance can be able to determine whether to use HTTP or HTTPS feature by according to the different schemes ("http://" or "https://") in the boot file URI.

  • NetworkPkg/HttpUtilitiesDxe - HTTP utilities driver, which produces
EFI_HTTP_UTILITIES_PROTOCOL
  • NetworkPkg/HttpBootDxe - HTTP Boot driver, which produces
EFI_LOAD_FILE_PROTOCOL

Shell Application

  • Application/VConfig - VLAN configuration Shell application
  • Application/IpsecConfig - IPsec configuration Shell application

Notes

  • UNDI, SNP, DPC and MNP drivers are components shared by IPv4 network stack and IPv6 network stack. These modules could be found in MdeModulePkg except the UNDI driver. For UNDI driver, please contact the Card Vendor.
