Diameter: New Generation AAA Protocol - Design, Practice, and Applications

A new book about the Diameter protocol was just published:

Diameter: New Generation AAA Protocol - Design, Practice, and Applications

The reason to mention it here: this book discusses about freeDiameter in particular, and comes with a pre-built virtual machine image that contains a ready-for-use freeDiameter environment. Quite a good starting point for any freeDiameter enthusiast.

Another downtime...

Hi,

You may have noticed that the domain was down for a while; the primary server has actually physically relocated to a new home... And it took some time to get all back online!

Let us know if you experience any issue now that the server is back...

Apology for the inconvenience~ Sebastien

freeDiameter website downtime

Some of you may have noticed the website has been down for a while; this has been a combination of failures of 2 independent servers, unlikely but it happened unfortunately.

Thanks to all the people who wrote to me about this :) Your interest in freeDiameter is really motivating.

NO the freeDiameter implementation is not dead :) Although the active development is in "pause" I continue the maintenance and when I have more free time I will work on new features -- in the meantime I accept any contributions :)

Now one of the server is restored, but we need to migrate the content of the second server that is aging... so further downtime may occur in a not so distant future or during the migration. Thank you for your patience if that happens.

Best regards to all, and happy 2016 (still a few days remaining for the new year greetings) and happy year of the monkey (a bit ahead of time)

Sebastien

freeDiameter 1.1.0 is released.

The first version of the 1.1.x branch is now released.

Quite a lot of changes are included from previous 1.0.3 version, and a few bugs may remain in this version. However, we believe it should behave better than 1.0.3 in many aspects.

The main change is the re-organization of the source code. Most of the framework is now shipped as a library, libfdcore, while the daemon is just a lightweight front-end for this library. The intent is to allow easy integration of the freeDiameter framework into existing products.

For a more detailed list of changes, please check this changelog file.

The new release can be obtained from the Mercurial repository here: http://www.freediameter.net/hg/freeDiameter/archive/1.1.0.tar.gz (tag: 1.1.0)

It will also be available shortly as a Debian package. See this page for more information.

Please report any problem or difficulty either by filing a new ticket (requires registration on this website) or by sending a mail to help@freediameter.net mailing-list.

A note about the power shortages: according to latest TEPCO status, the power cuts may occur at fixed time and not every days. Therefore, if you receive an error message when accessing this website, please try again after a few hours. Once again, we apologize for this inconvenience.

Thank you for your interest in freeDiameter The freeDiameter team.

Documentation update in progress

Anticipating the upcoming 1.1.0 freeDiameter release, the documentation on the website is being re-organized. Please don't panic if you see many broken links, the new content will be coming soon.

freeDiameter 1.0.3 released!

And there comes freeDiameter 1.0.3 as a Christmas gift for you :o)

This new release comes with a lot of bug fixes, specially with regards to portability to other Linux distributions -- the framework should now compile on main Linux distributions without problems.

In addition, two new extensions are available: dict_legacy_xml.fdx and dbg_interactive.fdx. Both extensions are focused on allowing the development of Diameter application prototypes very easily and without writing a single line of C code. Please refer to each extension's documentation for more information. We believe these extensions will become the Diameter user's must-have tool very soon.

As usual, you can find a more extensive list of changes in the changelog file.

The new release can be obtained from the Mercurial repository here: http://www.freediameter.net/hg/freeDiameter/archive/1.0.3.tar.gz (tag: 1.0.3)

It is also available as a Debian package. See this page for more information.

Please report any problem or difficulty either by filing a new ticket or by sending a mail to help@freediameter.net mailing-list.

A very happy end of year to all of you!

Thank you, The freeDiameter team.

freeDiameter 1.0.1 released

We are pleased to announce the release 1.0.1 of freeDiameter is now available.

This new release contains many bug fixes and a few new features. See the changelog file for more information on the changes.

The new release can be obtained from the Mercurial repository here: http://www.freediameter.net/hg/freeDiameter/archive/1.0.1.tar.gz (tag: 1.0.1)

Evolution status

A new version of freeDiameter, 1.0.1, will be released soon (within the end of this month). This release contains many bug fixes, in particular in the RADIUS/Diameter gateway. The 1.0.1-rc1 was tagged in the repository a few days ago.

In the longer term (release 1.1.0), the structure of the implementation will change slightly (see ticket 15) to allow easier integration in other projects (typically, implementation of Diameter clients).

Changes are also planned in the freeDiameter API. The sessions management for example will be modified since current API does not allow a clean management (16). If you are currently developing new freeDiameter extensions using the sessions, please drop a mail on dev@freediameter.net so we can discuss the details. Apart from the sessions, the API will also be affected by 7 (some datatypes will be redefined to speedup operations) and 10 (ability to set a timeout for receiving a Diameter answer).

freeDiameter is still a young implementation and the API is expected to evolve quickly, but yet it is already usable. Last week, we experimented RADIUS/Diameter gateway, Diameter EAP server, and Diameter accounting server components to perform AAA functions for a venue with 200 people. Although we encountered a few problems, the operation was very smooth for the end-users, thanks to redundancy of our servers and efficient failover mechanism implementation of freeDiameter.

Thank you, the freeDiameter project.

freeDiameter is now packaged for Debian and Ubuntu distributions as .deb files, available for i386 and amd64 architectures. Please click here for more information on how to obtain and use these packages.

Thank you for your interest in freeDiameter!

First release candidate for freeDiameter 1.0.0 is out!

We are now entering stabilization of the code for the first release of freeDiameter.

About freeDiameter

freeDiameter is a implementation of the Diameter protocol specified in RFC3588. Diameter is a protocol for carrying Authentication, Authorization and Accounting information. It is an evolution of the widely-deployed RADIUS protocol. freeDiameter also implements the changes to the Diameter protocol introduced by the rfc3588bis Internet Draft (work in progress).

freeDiameter is open-source and released under a BSD compatible license. It is mainly written in the C language, which provides excellent performance and small memory footprint.

For additional detail about freeDiameter, please refer to its README file, as well as the Wiki.

If you require assistance with freeDiameter, please refer to these instructions.

You are of course welcome to contribute to this wiki and implementation. Please contact dev@freediameter.net for getting you started.
