  • Helped develop a plan for the GENI portal with GENI staff, and set an agenda going forward.
  • Began to develop a set of options for federated IdM for GPO staff, to allow it to get to distributed GENI participant resources. Plan may use COmanage as a local IdM for GPO, addressing the lack of appropriate IdM infrastructure in the GPO, in BBN and in Raytheon. Began to identify options for federating GENI collaboration resources, such as its lists and wikis.
