Aurae Daemon

The Aurae Daemon (auraed) is the main daemon that powers Aurae.

The Aurae Daemon runs as a gRPC server which listens over a Unix domain socket by default.


Running auraed

Running as /sbin/init is currently under active development.

To run auraed as a standard library server you can run the daemon alongside your current init system.

Building from source

We suggest using the aurae repository for building all parts of the project.

If you intend on building this repository directly you can leverage the Makefile in this repository:

make auraed

or use Cargo directly:

cargo clippy
cargo install --debug --path .

Running auraed in a Container

It is possible to run auraed in a container as long as the following is considered:

  • Populating mTLS certificate material into the container.
  • Exposing either the socket or a network interface from the container for client connections.

Building the container (replace with your values):

sudo -E docker build -t krisnova/aurae:latest -t krisnova/aurae:$sha -f images/Dockerfile.nested .
sudo -E docker push krisnova/aurae:latest
sudo -E docker push krisnova/aurae:$sha

Running the container as PID 1:

Note: This pattern (and the krisnova registry) will never be officially supported by the project. This is temporary as with bootstrap the project.

make pki config
sudo -E docker run -v /etc/aurae:/etc/aurae krisnova/aurae:latest
