Meeting Minutes and Presentations


  • The "GENI End-User Opt-In Overview" document is being drafted.

  • The "GENI Strucuture Overview" document is being drafted.
  • The RegionalOptIn project is currently developing techniques that can be used for wholesale opt-in of large populations of innocent users. The Requirements for Wholesale Opt-In document describes a strong wholesale opt-in mechanism for GENI. It would permit GENI experimenters to request that ISPs redirect traffic from a huge population of innocent users through GENI infrastructure. This document was reviewed at the GEC4 WG meeting. Your additional comments are welcome.

  • Extensive list of references is included in  agenda for April 14, 2009 meeting.
