Common Open Research Emulator

An unofficial .deb (amd64 and armhf) repository for CORE

 

CORE: Common Open Research Emulator

The Common Open Research Emulator (CORE) is a tool for emulating  networks in one or more machines. You can connect these emulated networks to live networks.
 
CORE consists of a GUI for drawing topologies of lightweight virtual  machines, and Python modules for scripting network emulation.

The official CORE homepage is  https://github.com/coreemu/core

CORE and Debian

I am Eriberto and I was the CORE maintainer in Debian for some years. However, CORE has a security hole not solved that allow users to access the root account from the real machine easily. So, CORE was removed from Debian. You can see some references about it in following links:


.deb files for CORE

CORE is an excellent tool to learn about networks (even considering a security hole). Well, I will try keep providing .deb files for CORE outside of Debian.

NOTE: the packages made for Wheezy and Jessie are for amd64 architecture only. There are packages amd64 and armhf for Stretch.

1. You need add two lines to end of the /etc/apt/sources.list file.

If you use Debian 9 (Stretch), use the following lines:

deb http://eriberto.pro.br/core/ stretch main
deb-src http://eriberto.pro.br/core/ stretch main

If you use Debian 8 (Jessie):

deb http://eriberto.pro.br/core/ jessie main
deb-src http://eriberto.pro.br/core/ jessie main

If you use Debian 7 (Wheezy):

deb http://eriberto.pro.br/core/ wheezy main
deb-src http://eriberto.pro.br/core/ wheezy main

2. Add my public key to your Debian keyring:

# apt-key adv --recv-keys 04ebe9ef

or

# apt-key adv --keyserver pgp.surfnet.nl --recv-keys 04ebe9ef

3. Run:

# apt-get update
# apt-get install core-network

4. Be happy!

5. If you want to get the packages directly, go to here.
