This work will port and deploy the Davis Social Links (DSL) system prototype as an early GENI experiment of ProtoGENI. DSL will support a number of advanced communication features such as social keyword based routing, reputation and trust control along the route paths, community-oriented networking, anonymity, and application dualism (a separation between the end2end semantics and social-network based access control). The project will address privacy and other issues related to making traffic from DSL available to other experiments on GENI.

Project Technical Documents

Links to wiki pages for the project's technical documents go here. List should include any document in the working groups, as well as other useful documents. Projects may have a full tree of wiki pages here.

Quarterly Status Reports


Spiral 2 Review Presentation

Spiral 2 Connectivity

Links to wiki pages about details of infrastrcture that the project is using (if any). Examples include IP addresses, hostnames, URLs, DNS servers, local site network maps, VLANIDs (if permanent VLANs are used), pointers to public keys. GPO may do first drafts of any of these and have the PI correct them to bootstrap. May also include ticket links for pending or known connectivity issues. Many projects will have a full tree of wiki pages here.
