ExptsSecurity Project Status Report

Period: GEC15 (Oct 23-25) 2012

I. Major accomplishments

A. Milestones achieved

We delivered the report as stated in the Milestone ExptsSec:S4.d. The report summarized the experiments in exploring current user key management and proposed suggestions that can simplify some of it. Specifically, we investigated issues of multiple SSH keys and the remote login tools. The report also studied the access control mechanisms of GENI. Robot behavior of continuously requesting resources should be tackled, and suggestions on Human-Robot distinguisher were made in the report.

We also delivered the report for the Milestone ExptsSec:S4.c. The work was performed in the summer.
