[ovirt-users] IP Address Stealing

Cool. It looks like that works. Perhaps it would be good for oVirt to have a few text fields in the nic properties to enter IP addresses into which can match the rules being used. For example, when enabling the clean-traffic filter it appears the VM can only have 1 IP address, even if another IP is added legitimately, it still only works with the original IP address.

Something like this: http://i.imgur.com/9BUZRCN.jpg

So essentially, traffic would be blocked on that VM for any other IP space other than the IP’s entered into the text fields, which then edit/work with the netfilter rules. The idea would be to click “click to add more” would add another text field.

Not built into ovirt AFAIK,  but an ebtables rule can allow you to filter out mac+ip combinations

Look at the anti-spoofing rules on ebtables.netfilter.org<http://ebtables.netfilter.org>

It doesn't prevent the user adding it in the vm, but the infrastructure blocks it's usage.

It is possible to prevent a VM from adding an IP? For example, if we provision a VM with one IP, if the user has root access they can simply add random IP’s from within the same range as sub interfaces: eth0:0 eth0:1 eth0:2 so on and so forth.

Subnetting is not ideal in this situation because it’s a huge waste of IP space.

In oVirt 4.0, you can choose a vnic libvirt filter from a list (at the vnic profile settings).
You can check the clean-traffic filter which uses multiple other more specific filters.
