A review of how LAVA Multi-Node can be used to meet the needs of LNG. Focusing on variants to the common use case where a heterogeneous network topology is assumed, and additional spurious traffic on a link under test can be tolerated.
Networking testing and benchmarking needs flexible and exclusive/dedicated connections between development boards: An advanced use-case for IPSec, where a packet generator is connected to, and sends cleartext traffic to a board ("left/encryptor"), which in turn encrypts and forwards the traffic to another board ("right/decryptor") that then decrypts and forwards traffic back to the packet generator, acting as a sink (packet counter), is presented. A discussion follows on what LAVA changes are necessary to achieve this.
