The scope of work on this project is to adapt the Handle System and/or a Digital Object Registry to realize a clearinghouse registry for principals, slices, and/or components in a selected GENI Spiral 1 control framework (possibly using XML RPC), and capable of supporting limited operations in Year 1. Also, to analyze how the Handle System and/or a Digital Object Registry could be used to identify and register GENI software, including experimenter’s tools, test images and configurations, and test results. And finally, to define the operational, scaling, security, and management requirements, plus recommended design approaches, for implementing GENI clearinghouse and software registry services.

Spiral 1 Connectivity

Expect to use IP addresses for registry. Part of ProtoGENI cluster.

No special GENI layer 2 connectivity needs for virtual Ethernet connections.

Experimental Control Tool Proposal This proposal, we made to Vicraj Thomas, is to use our Digital Object Architecture for building experimental control tools. Vic suggested that there are not enough experiments being conducted in GENI to evaluate this proposal. (Click here for the proposal)
