From the network down to the filesystem and back. This talk will give an overview on Samba's SMB2 packet processing with the goal of giving novice smbd hackers a starting point to the most important source code subsystems involved when a client sends a "create a file" request to the server.
About the "sambaXP 2020 Retrospective"
In this series we will present recordings of the sambaXP 2020 in the coming month. The 19th edition of the international conference on the open source software Samba took place from 26 - 28 May 2020 for the first time exclusively in digital form. Due to the changed event format and the use of an online conference platform, organizer SerNet is able to offer all talks as videos for viewing (link).
