This effort will develop an evolving GENI Cyber Security Program through detailed analysis of GENI architecture documents, specific implementations, and project work, using an open process the encourages community feedback. The project team will leverage experience with security planning for the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, the NSF TeraGrid and Open Science Grid projects, the Blue Waters Project and the National Center for Digital Intrusion and Response, broadening the experimental community’s interactions with GENI. The project will produce interim and longer-term GENI security plans, guidelines and procedures, and will collaborate closely with other GENI security projects, particularly SPARTA’s.
