I. Major accomplishments

A. Milestones achieved

No milestone was set for this time period. All the milestones were achieved by GEC15 report, with deliverables made, see the Milestone ExptsSec:S4.d.

B. Deliverables made

II. Description of work performed during last quarter

A. Activities and findings

Some activities are education related and publication related (listed in Publications). We used ProtoGENI in a graduate course of distributed systems during 2013 spring semester. A paper describing vulnerability analysis based on ProtoGENI experiments was published in Jan 2013 by IEEE System Journal. In the paper we introduced our experimental study on the vulnerability of ProtoGENI and considerations on mitigating strategies. Another paper reviewing GENI authentication and access control was accepted by International Journal of Security and Networks. There were research activities by Dr Hong with OpenFlow and software defined networks. Purchases were made.
