GENI Engineering Conference 7

March 16, 2010 Duke University Durham, North Carolina

Live demonstrations, posters, and presentations at GEC7 highlighted results from 39 spiral 2 projects. The demonstrations used high-speed GENI links on NLR and Internet2, as well as mobile network technologies such as WiMAX and OpenFlow wireless. GENI control framework software supported integrated demonstrations between more projects than at any previous GENI conference, using new tools and interfaces. Several projects also displayed early monitoring and operations prototypes. See project videos, descriptions, and presentations here.

Demo Participants: Larry Lannom, PI, Giridhar Manepalli
Corporation for National Research Initiatives (CNRI) demonstrated the functionality of the proposed GENI Federated Clearinghouse (GFC), which is implemented using the DIGOBREG technology. A prototype of GFC was demonstrated in Spiral 1 that aggregated information from the ProtoGENI clearinghouse, but the automatic federation from ProtoGENI clearinghouse was missing. That is, information from ProtoGENI was not updated on a regular basis in the prototype. The demonstration at GEC7 included automatic federation capability. Additional capabilities such as how end users can search on RSpec elements to discover resources was demonstrated. CNRI also demonstrated a security model that provides "freedom from the CRLs". This security model is implemented using the PKI capability embedded in the Handle System.

OpenFlow Wisconsin (OFUWI)

Click here to see OFUWI's status update slides

Demo Participants: Theo Benson, Mike Blodgett
OpenFlow at U Wisconsin demonstrated OpenSAFE network monitoring and the University of Wisconsin-Madison current deployment.

Monitoring is crucial for both networks and testbeds, monitoring enables operators to perform security checks and to troubleshoot network problems. To this end U Wisconsin developed OpenSAFE, a monitoring and network security platform, built using the OpenFlow framework that allows operators to better monitor their network infrastructure. Leveraging the power of OpenSAFE, operators of E-GENI infrastructure will be able to instrument powerful network security applications for E-GENI. In this demo, U Wisconsin presented an overview of the OpenSAFE framework and ALARMS, the accompanying policy language, showing the flexibility of OpenSAFE by implementing several different security policies in ALARMS.

Extending E-GENI to enterprises and universities requires the deployment of devices capable of supporting the E-GENI requirements and the ability to allocate network slices on these devices. Over the last 3 months, U Wisconsin worked with three network operators to deploy three OpenFlow switches that are capable of fulfilling the E-GENI requirements, in the wiring closets of the Computer Sciences building. Although still in the initial stages, this deployment is able to support the coexistence of multiple network slices through the use of the FlowVisor framework. In this demo, U Wisconsin displayed the ability of this deployment to support two network slices. The first slice, the production slice, contained network traffic managed by an instance of SNAC, whereas the second slice, the research slice, was managed by a research controller running an experimental routing protocol.
