End-user Opt-In Working Group "Writing Meeting" in NYC

A working meeting of the End-User Opt-In WG is being planned to meet on Tuesday, April 14, 10am - 4pm in NYC, at Columbia University (Computer Science Building, Room 453).

The objective is to add content to the DRAFT document: “GENI End-User Opt-In Overview” (working title).

To date, five end-user opt-in use cases have been identified:

  • Use Case 1: User opt-in to GENI experiment for service
  • Use Case 2: Wholesale opt-in to GENI of traffic
  • Use Case 3: A disruptive GENI experiment
  • Use Case 4: Opt-in of user resources to a GENI experiment
  • Use Case 5: Gathering data involving opt-in users in a GENI experiment

These use cases then drive requirements on capabilities that are being included into GENI, including:

  • Capability 1: Gateway from GENI to another network, e.g., the Internet
  • Capability 2: Contribution (or association) of a user’s node to an experiment on GENI
  • Capability 3: Gathering logs and experiment data on GENI (some possibly user-identifiable) and managing their distribution

Finally, we expect various common policy themes to arise from an examination of the policies and best practices required for each use case, such as:

  • Privacy policies for end-users
  • Disclosure policies

For each use case, we want to better understand and write down:

the players, their motivation and relationships; major issues (incentives, risks to consider, etc.) and a first cut at policies and best practices when operating in a GENI environment.

We want to finish this meeting with a better understanding, and a few pages of text for each use case. Then, we hope to have a baseline view of GENI opt-in that can be expanded in the coming months.
