charrua-core

DHCP wire frame encoder and decoder
Description

Charrua-core consists of two modules, a Dhcp_wire responsible for parsing and constructing DHCP messages and a Dhcp_server module used for constructing DHCP servers.

You can browse the API for charrua-core at http://mirage.github.io/charrua-core/api

dhcp is a Mirage DHCP unikernel server based on charrua-core, included as a part of the MirageOS unikernel example and starting-point repository.

Features

  • Dhcp_server supports a stripped down ISC dhcpd.conf, so you can probably just use your old dhcpd.conf. It also supports manual configuration building in OCaml.
  • Dhcp_wire provides marshalling and unmarshalling utilities for DHCP, it is the base for Dhcp_server.
  • Logic/sequencing is agnostic of IO and platform, so it can run on Unix as a process, as a Mirage unikernel or anything else.
  • All DHCP options are supported at the time of this writing.
  • Code is purely applicative.
  • It's in OCaml, so it's pretty cool.

The name charrua is a reference to the, now extinct, semi-nomadic people of southern South America.
