Group Based Policy (GBP) is a StackForge project that provides declarative abstractions for achieving scalable intent-based infrastructure automation. GBP was originally conceived in the Atlanta Design Summit and has since evolved to its current state where it can be put into the hands of early adopters.

Currently GBP complements the OpenStack networking model with the notion of policies that can be applied between groups of network endpoints. As users look beyond basic connectivity, richer network services with diverse implementations and network properties are naturally expressed as policies. Examples include service chaining, QoS, path properties, access control, etc. GBP thus allows application administrators to express their networking requirements using a Group and a Policy Rules-Set abstraction. The specifics of policy rendering are left to the underlying pluggable policy driver. The GBP model also inherently supports constructs that makes it easy to abstract and consume complex network service chains and graphs.

This model of defining groups of entities and providing abstractions to capture user intent in the form of a policy language is being extended to the entire infrastructure in general. In this session we will review the GBP implementation for Juno, discuss the roadmap for Kilo, and also share pointers on how new participants can contribute to the project.
