     22'''Scope'''
     23
     24The scope of work on this project is to specify, build, and
     25demonstrate a prototype end host deployment platform consisting of
     26three components: a) a general-purpose yet safe execution environment
     27for experimenter code running on end hosts, b) a light-weight,
     28programmable and customizable proxy for end hosts for redirecting
     29end-user traffic into the GENI facility, and c) a clearinghouse for
     30resources contributed by end users who have opted into the system.
     31 
     32Specific development goals include:[[BR]]
     33    1. Development of a viable end-host virtual machine[[BR]]
     34    2. Control-plane integration, including resource discovery and reservation; experiment debug and control[[BR]]
     35    3. End-user configuration and management tools[[BR]]
     36    4. Deployment strategies such as inclusion in Bit Tyrant or web plug-in[[BR]]
     37    5. End-user policy & awareness issues and mechanisms

     57
     58Not yet associated with a control framework---will need to pick one.
     59
     60Connectivity issues need to be sorted out.  End user devices will already have IP addresses.  Need to figure out how they connect to clearinghouses, etc.
