Open-iSCSI is a high-performance, transport independent, multi-platform
implementation of the RFC3720 Internet Small Computer Systems Interface
Open-iSCSI is partitioned into user and kernel parts, where the kernel
portion implements the iSCSI data path (i.e. iSCSI Read and iSCSI Write).
The userspace contains the entire control plane:
* Configuration Manager;
* iSCSI Discovery;
* Login and Logout processing;
* Connection level error processing;
* Nop-In and Nop-Out handling;
* (in the future) Text processing, iSNS, SLP, Radius, etc.
This package includes a daemon, iscsid, and a management utility,

open-iscsi (2.0.874-5ubuntu2) bionic; urgency=medium
* debian/tests:
- tgt-boot-test: Use 'timeout' to force a 60m timeout of the boot test.
- document environment variables BOOT_TIMEOUT
and _USE_KVM.
2018-01-12 - Dimitri John Ledkov <>
open-iscsi (2.0.874-5ubuntu1) bionic; urgency=low
* Merge with Debian unstable. Remaining changes:
- debian/tests: Add Ubuntu autopkgtests.
- debian/iscsi-network-interface.rules, debian/net-interface-handler,
Prevent network interface that contains iscsi root from bouncing
during boot or going down during shutdown.
Integrates with resolvconf and initramfs code that writes
- debian/open-iscsi.maintscript: clean up the obsolete
iscsi-network-interface upstart job, file on upgrade.
- Let iscsid systemd job run in privileged containers but not in
unprivileged ones
- Start open-iscsi systemd job when either /etc/iscsi/nodes or
/sys/class/iscsi_session have content
Based on patch by Nish Aravamudan, thanks! (LP #1576341)
- add IPv6 support
+ add support for IPV6{DOMAINSEARCH,DNS0,DNS1} to net-interface-handler
LP #1621507
+ Source /run/net6-*.conf when needed.
+ debian/extra/initramfs.local-top: handle IPv6 configs being
shipped in DEVICE6 or /run/net6-*.conf in the initramfs, so we
can fill in /run/initramfs/open-iscsi.interface (LP #1621507)

open-iscsi (2.0.874-5) unstable; urgency=high
* [aeb86f7] Fix multiple security issues in iscsiuio. (CVE-2017-17840)
(Closes: #885021)
2018-01-03 - Dimitri John Ledkov <>
open-iscsi (2.0.874-4ubuntu5) bionic; urgency=medium
* debian/tests/patch-image: mount auxilary filesystems before upgrading
packages. Fixes ADT tests, when triggered by packages, that need
/proc, /dev, etc mounted to complete the upgrade.

open-iscsi (2.0.874-4ubuntu4) bionic; urgency=medium
* debian/tests/ skip test if cloud image is unavailable.
This solves flaky tests in restricted network environments as well as in
the short period after opening a new release (LP: #1731907).
2017-10-11 - Scott Moser <>
open-iscsi (2.0.874-4ubuntu3) artful; urgency=medium
* debian/tests/xkvm: do not use kvm (-enable-kvm) by default if
operating inside a vm.  nested kvm is finicky.
2017-09-06 - Scott Moser <>
open-iscsi (2.0.874-4ubuntu2) artful; urgency=medium
* debian/tests/ query systemd-resolved if present.
Ubuntu images now have systemd-resolved managing /etc/resolv.conf
so support test if that is the case (LP: #1715468).
