State of GeoServer - FOSS4G 2022 Edition

State of GeoServer - FOSS4G 2022 Edition

GeoServer is a web service for publishing your geospatial data using industry standards for vector, raster and mapping, as well as to process data, either in batch or on the fly.
GeoServer powers a number of open source projects like GeoNode and geOrchestra and it is widely used throughout the world by organizations to manage, disseminate and analyze data at scale.

This presentation provides an update on our community as well as reviews of the new and noteworthy features for the latest releases. In particular, we will showcase new features landed in 2.20 and 2.21, as well as a preview of what we have in store for 2.22 (to be released in September 2022).

Attend this talk for a cheerful update on what is happening with this popular OSGeo project, whether you are an expert user, a developer, or simply curious what GeoServer can do for you.

  18. Layer group styles
    ● A layer group style is a style name
    offering a different list of layers and styles
    to build the group
    ● Use cases:
    ○ Different representation of same layers
    ○ Simplified representation of same map
    (less layers)
    ● Example here: Ordnance Survey
    MasterMap (6 layers) in 4 alternative
    styles

  40. Security Vulnerabilities

    View full-size slide

  41. ● Keep exploit details out of issue report
    ● Mark the issue as a vulnerability.
    ● Be prepared to work with Project Steering Committee (PSC) on a solution
    ● Keep in mind PSC members are volunteers and an extensive fix may require
    fundraising / resources
    If you are not in position to communicate in public please consider commercial
    support, contacting a PSC member, or reaching us via the Open Source
    Geospatial Foundation at [email protected].
    In case you stumble into a vulnerability:
    Responsible Disclosure

    View full-size slide

  42. ● Log4Shell
    ○ Published immediate assessment
    (that GeoServer was not vulnerable)
    ○ Released GeoServer w/ patched log4k 1.2
    (with no JMS Appender)
    ○ Instructions for patching prior versions
    ○ Range of community response from
    demands to offering funding
    ● Spring4Shell
    ○ Could not find exploit
    ○ Mitigation: Java 8
    ○ GeoServer Release with Spring update
    Security Vulnerabilities
    ● RCE in Jiffle
    ○ CVE-2022-24847 ← our first ever CVE!
    ○ Mitigation: janino.jar
    ● RCE in JNDI lookups
    ○ Similar to Log4Shell
    ○ Made safe lookup methods in GeoTools
    ● Log4J 2 Upgrade
    ○ Did a small fundraising activity
    ○ Public proposal process
    ○ Funds raised (and effort to raise funds)
    not sufficient for these activities
    ○ GeoServer 2.21 Log4j 2 Update
    ● Website: tag “security vulnerability” posts

  44. Developer Participation
    Concerns:
    ● Project care and feeding relies on a low number of people
    Actions:
    ● Reach out to “downstream projects” to test release candidates
    ● Revamp service providers page to highlight participation and experience
    (encourage service providers to participate)
    ● Exploring small contracts, and “cost recovery” code-sprint model

  48. Reset of single store/layer via REST API
    ● Currently one can do a system wide
    “reset”
    ● Clears up feature type caches, connection
    pools and so on, from the whole
    GeoServer
    ● Add the ability to perform reset of
    caches/pools on a single store and on a
    single layer

  50. Vector mosaicking store
    ● Useful to handle thousands
    of files with similar structure
    ● Database used only to index
    them
    ● Much cheaper than storing
    everything in a database (on
    cloud)
    ● Not suitable if on the fly
    aggregations are needed
    ● Great if the end user
    application mostly pulls a
    few files (one?) at a time

  57. GeoServer progress towards recertification:
    ● GeoServer 2.6.1 (Boundless 2012)
    ● GeoServer 2.9.1 (Boundless 2016)
    ● Phase I: CITE Test Automation RFP
    ○ GSIP-176 Contact with GeoSolutions
    ○ Test framework completed in 2021
    ● Phase II: Code Sprint to pass tests
    ○ Fundraising at FOSS4G 2021
    ○ Sprint supported with cost recovery model
    (based on participation)
    ● Phase III: Certification
    ○ Provide test results to OGC
    ○ OSGeo agreement covers certification
    Do you rely on GeoServer to share data:
    ● Government contracts and standards often
    require that web services be certified to
    meet data provider obligations
    ● Previously folks assumed GeoServer was
    certified by Boundless
    ● We request and appreciate your support in
    addressing CITE compliance
    Solid value beyond “marketing” sticker:
    ● Provide “black box” test confidence
    ● A “second opinion” beyond our own QA
