This effort will develop a prototype shared measurement service based on the existing S3 service, integrate it with ProtoGENI and deploy it for GENI experimenter's use. This shared measurement service will emphasize scalability and safety to best utilize network resources associated with measurements. The project will also analyze GENI privacy and security requirements for measured data, and prototype the service to address appropriate requirements in each development spiral. The project will collaborate with related GENI measurement and security projects (e.g. University of Wisconsin's Instrumentation and Measurement for GENI) on a common GENI instrumentation and measurement architecture.

Spiral 2 Connectivity

Links to wiki pages about details of infrastrcture that the project is using (if any). Examples include IP addresses, hostnames, URLs, DNS servers, local site network maps, VLANIDs (if permanent VLANs are used), pointers to public keys. GPO may do first drafts of any of these and have the PI correct them to bootstrap. May also include ticket links for pending or known connectivity issues. Many projects will have a full tree of wiki pages here.
