All rights reserved.Cisco Public University of the Future 2 Where We Are  Two tasks forces finishing their terms in September 2008  TF-Mobility –eduroam-NG, metering, other mobile technologies, sensor networks  TF-EMC2 –TACAR, campus issues, directories, diagnostics, federation coordination and Grid liaison

3 © 2007 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.Cisco Public University of the Future 3 Achievements  eduroam –Well beyond our borders  RadSec –Driving industry trends  TACAR –First stakes in the Grid camp  SCS –Almost universal service  SCHAC –Bologna and more  REFEDS gatherings –Re-focusing federation interoperation

6 © 2007 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.Cisco Public University of the Future 6 But We Need to Focus  Middleware has a too wide meaning  Depending on the community –And where the community feels the stuff is –Middleware is the layer connecting the stuff to the rest of the world in a seamless manner  Our stuff is academic and research networking –But the definition above is still too wide –And perceived needs must be dealt first  Let’s concentrate on –Enhancing current achievements –Widen their application areas –Explore demanding aspects

7 © 2007 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.Cisco Public University of the Future 7 Proposed Course of Action  Continue with two TFs, re-focusing them –And making a better share of interests  Concentrated on –Collaborative service definition and deployment –Exploratory pilots –Standards and best practices –Coordination National activities Beyond the NREN community Beyond Trans-European limits

8 © 2007 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.Cisco Public University of the Future 8 Two New Middleware TFs  With interest areas assigned across the protocol stack  One focused on middleware related to network services –Going beyond mobility technologies  One focused on infrastructure services –Specifically, on identity-related ones –Both for the network and the application layers  Coordinated by ECAM  And continuing with other activities –EuroCAMPs –Grid-NRENs connections

9 © 2007 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.Cisco Public University of the Future 9 Across the Stack  Bottom layer of the application –PKI –Directories and schemas –{Con-, inter-}federation –Reputation  Top layer of the network –Mobility –Network access –Endpoint assessment –Provider integration The Network The Application The Middleware

10 © 2007 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.Cisco Public University of the Future 10 TF on Network Middleware  Mobility issues –Beyond and around eduroam  Network access in general –802.1x on everything  NEA –The other side of TNC  Control planes –Connection with NGN activities  Collaboration with providers –The 3G use case ...

11 © 2007 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.Cisco Public University of the Future 11 TF on Identity Infrastructure  PKI –TACAR and SCS  Schemas –Making SCHAC grow  Directories –Steps towards semantics  Federations, confederations, inter-federations –Including the third ‘A’?  Reputation systems –Starting with applications ...

All rights reserved.Cisco Public University of the Future 12 To Conclude  Middleware activities have made relevant achievements –But need a re-focus  Essentially, keeps things going –If it works, don’t touch it  But redefine goals and areas –Well, touch it a little to keep it working

13 © 2007 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.Cisco Public University of the Future 13 Possible Activities  Investigate use cases for federated NEA –Remote posture –Definition of ‘cleanliness’ –Policy wrt remediation  DNSsec  Network desktop  LBS  eduToken  Interworking with operators  Eduroam beyond Europe  mesh, ad-hoc, p2p  collaboration with other communities "free services" (municipal, google, yahoo, FON etc.)  reports  universal ethernet (UETS)?  cloud computing?  campus middleware issues wrt networking  Diagnostics?  reputation systems (anti-spam, anti-spit, p2p etc.)  enum
