ONES Security

ONES is a support application for SONiC stack. It is designed for customer's engineering team such as SRE’s, HW and SW engineering teams for their daily network diagnosis and troubleshooting needs. In addition to that ONES exposes the API to integrate with external tools or customer homegrown applications.

This section describes how ONES authenticates users and secures communication.

FeaturesONES Support

Role Based Access

ONES provide RBAC support for creating dedicated user accounts. it has a superadmin account which can manage these user accounts for control and permissions

Secure Access to Application

ONES Application provides HTTPS over standard port 443 supporting both self-signed and CA-signed certificates

Secure Access to switches

Auto-discovery communication between Agent and collector using a secure channel(SSL/TLS) with certificates (self-signed and CA-signed certificates

API Access

ONES Application provides HTTPS over standard port 443 supporting both self-signed and CA-signed certificates, the API is available via time-bound authentication tokens.

RBAC: Role-Based Access Control

Secure Access to the Application

ONES application provides HTTPs over standard port 443 supporting both self-signed and CA signed certificates.

  • HTTPS Support CA Signed

  • HTTPS Self Signed

Secure Access to the switch*

ONES utilizes gRPC infrastructure to communicate with switch agents. TLS (Transport Layer Security) is the primary security protocol used by gRPC to secure communication between the client and the server. TLS provides authentication, confidentiality, and integrity of data. Authentication is achieved using digital certificates, which verify the identity of the client and the server.

With an added extra layer of security, ONESv2.1 support Certificate based communication between switches and ONES Controller, and all the metrics will be streamed using the certificate-based encryption

Agent Based Deployment with TLS certificate

Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a crucial protocol that ensures secure communication between ONES Controller and Agent, Whenever Agent will register to ONES server and further it will start sending the update it will encapsulate all the metrics and will do the encryption based on certificate provided at the time of installation, by using this all the communication will be encrypted between ONES agent and ONES controller TLS relies on digital certificates issued by trusted Certificate Authorities (CAs) to authenticate servers and sometimes clients. These certificates validate the identity of the entities involved in the communication and establish trust in the encrypted connection.
