irondemo - an IF-MAP demo and testing environment
The Trust@FHH team would like to announce that our new IF-MAP demo and testing environment, irondemo, is now available to the public on github.
irondemo is a utility written in Perl that automates the task of downloading and building various of our IF-MAP tools (such as irond, irondetect, irongui and others). Third party tools can easily be integrated by providing instructions for downloading and building the sources in a YAML file.
irondemo also allows for easily constructing demo or test scenarios by describing them in a YAML file and providing the neccessary config files and scripts. irondemo will handle copying of the needed binaries and making sure the demo is set up in a clean environment.
We are still in an early stage of developement, but we see a lot of potential here. Our midterm goal for irondemo is to extend it gradually until we have a full blown environment for automated testing of different IF-MAP tools by being able to simulate complex network events on an IF-MAP level.
