ExptsSecurity Project Status Report

Period: GEC11 (July) 2011

I. Major accomplishments

A. Milestones achieved

We delivered the report as stated in the Milestone ExptsSec: S3.c before GEC11. The report summarized the experiments to explore vulnerabilities in different layers of the GENI security model. Some of the experiments are published in Globecom 2011. The related suggestions are made with the experiments. We are continuing experiments that follow up the current development of the ProtoGENI for next Milestone.

II. Description of work performed during last quarter

A. Activities and findings

Major activities are the experiments that explore vulnerabilities in different layers of the GENI/ProtoGENI security model. We also read documents to study GENI Spiral 2 and Spiral 3 results. Our findings are made as deliverables. We are continuing running experiments that follow up the current development of the ProtoGENI for next Milestone.

Our REU students have read documents about federation and followed up new developments in this area. They also participated in experiments and contributed to the writings of the delivered reports and papers.

We participated in GEC11 in July 2011. We discussed our work with other GENI teams and Dr Vicraj Thomas, and obtained great feedback from them. We also attended related tracks and sessions.
