CFEngine was the first Configuration Management solution on the market, and while we have made many and significant changes and improvements to CFEngine in that time, we stay true to the principles that make it such a great product and technology. There are many things that have changed in the market, not at least the competitive situation, we believe that fundamentally many of the challenges stay the same. It then follows that good architecture should not be sacrificed for short term hype.

In High-Performance Computing (HPC) uptime and performance are very important. HPC is an area of computing that often focuses on research and development, supporting teams with extremely complex problems they need to solve, and heavy computation mathematical problems, such as protein folding for vaccine development. To achieve this, HPC systems rely on high performance, the equipment is expensive, and the average customer has very high demands.

Contributor and CFEngine Champion, Jon Henrik Bjørnstad, developed a tool for encrypting files using CFEngine host keys, called cf-keycrypt. Thank you to Jon Henrik and all of our contributors for helping improve the CFEngine project. Our developer, Vratislav Podzimek, recently took some time to review the cf-keycrypt code, and made many improvements and fixes.

A vulnerability was recently discovered in CFEngine Mission Portal and has now been fixed. Under certain circumstances, it was possible to inject JavaScript code into data presented in Mission Portal, that would be run in the user’s browser. This security issue was fixed in CFEngine 3.10.7, 3.12.3, and 3.15.0, and will be mitigated by upgrading your hub to one of these versions (or later). No other action is required than upgrading the Hub.
