This document describes the practical operation of CA blacklist. It is recommended that you read this document before you realize [CA Blacklist Introduction].(../design/security_control/certificate_blacklist.md).
The operations of the CA blacklist include a node list to/remove from the CA blacklist, and are implemented through modifying the configuration file and restarting.
The node configuration
[certificate_blacklist] path (optional).
[certificate_blacklist] is the list of NodeID. node.X is the other node NodeID that the own node refuses to connect.
There are three nodes which are interconnected in the network. The related information of the nodes is:
The directory of node 1 is node0, IP port is 127.0.0.1:30400, and the first four bytes of nodeID are b231b309…
The directory of node 2 is node1, IP port is 127.0.0.1:30401, and the first four bytes of nodeID are aab37e73…
The directory of node 3 is node2, IP port is 127.0.0.1:30402, and the first four bytes of nodeID are d6b01a96…
Node A puts Node B in the CA blacklist¶
Node 1 and node 2 are in the same group. Other nodes in the group and them are taking turn to generate block. Now node 1 puts Node 2 to its own blacklist.
- For node0, to put the public key nodeID of node1 to its own CA blacklist;
$ cat node1/conf/node.nodeid aab37e73489bbd277aa848a99229ab70b6d6d4e1b81a715a22608a62f0f5d4270d7dd887394e78bd02d9f31b8d366ce4903481f50b1f44f0e4fda67149208943 $ vim node0/config.ini ;certificate blacklist [certificate_blacklist] ;crl.0 should be nodeid, nodeid's length is 128 crl.0=aab37e73489bbd277aa848a99229ab70b6d6d4e1b81a715a22608a62f0f5d4270d7dd887394e78bd02d9f31b8d366ce4903481f50b1f44f0e4fda67149208943
- Restart node 1;
# Execute in the node1 directory $ ./stop.sh $ ./start.sh nohup: appending output to ‘nohup.out’
- Confirm that node 1 and node 2 are no longer connected by the log. The operation of putting to blacklist is completed.
# Under the premise of opening the DEBUG level log, to check the number of nodes connected to the own node (node2) and the connected node information (nodeID). # The following log indicates that the node2 is connected with two nodes (the first 4 bytes of nodeID are b231b309 and aab37e73). $ tail -f node2/log/log* | grep P2P debug|2019-02-21 10:30:18.694258| [P2P][Service] heartBeat ignore connected,endpoint=127.0.0.1:30400,nodeID=b231b309... debug|2019-02-21 10:30:18.694277| [P2P][Service] heartBeat ignore connected,endpoint=127.0.0.1:30401,nodeID=aab37e73... info|2019-02-21 10:30:18.694294| [P2P][Service] heartBeat connected count,size=2
- Node 0 adds node 1 to its CA blacklist, node 0 will disconnect the connection and AMOP communication with node 1;
Node A revokes Node B from CA blacklist¶
Node 1 has the nodeID of node 2 in its own CA blacklist, and node 2 has not the nodeID of node 1 in its own CA blacklist. Now node 1 revoke node 2 from its own CA blacklist.
- For node 1, to revoke the public key nodeID of node 2 to its own CA blacklist;
- Restart node 1;
- Confirm that node 1 and node 2 re-establish the connection by the log. The operation of revoking from blacklist is completed.
