Scope

This proposed effort will create a framework that secures the software update systems that operate on GENI. The work will define and implement a security layer that can operate over many different application-specific installation environments, thus providing secure update functions for diverse GENI nodes and clients. The proposal plans to leverage the VM and the redirection proxy from the Million Node GENI project to support multiple platforms. The effort provides secure key management support for software update system developers, allowing software updates to be signed, validated, and distributed securely.
