     36== Scope ==
     38This effort will integrate PlanetLab (PLC), PlanetLab Europe (PLE),
     39PlanetLab Japan (PLJ)-along with other testbeds in Korea, Brazil,
     40Europe, Japan, and the US-into an international federated research
     41infrastructure. We will deploy and use the federation mechanisms
     42developed as part of the PlanetLab cluster currently funded by the
     43GPO, and focus our attention on the policy issues that arise when
     44autonomous organizations federate their networks together. Funding is
     45requested for Princeton (the prime) along with Université Pierre et
     46Marie Curie (UPMC) and the University of Tokyo (subcontractors), which
     47will drive the effort, but multiple testbeds will be federated with
     48the support of this proposal. The effort will focus on resolving the
     49policy issues related to federation-Princeton, UPMC, and the
     50University of Tokyo already have funding to perform the necessary
     51engineering work to build the mechanisms required by federation.
     53=== Current Capabilities ===
     55=== Milestones ===
     57Due January 1, 2010
     58        Create federated slice using SFA machinery across PLC, PLE, and PLJ. Assume minimal peering policy based on sliver count. Users interact with system using SFI command-line tool. Assume pair-wise peering among these three organizations.
     60Due April 1, 2010
     61        Demonstrate new policy engine (based on sfa_tables) by introducing richer peering policies; e.g., white-lists and black-lists.
     63Due July 1, 2010
     64        Demonstrate hierarchical (not pair-wise) peering by including VINI, M-Lab, and G-Lab in the federation.
     66Due September 30, 2010
     67        Demonstrate GUI-based interface as alternative to SFI command-line interface.
