1 2 February 2014 Internet2: CCIRN reports 3 July 2004

2 Internet2 E2E piPEs Project: End-to-End Performance Initiative Performance Environment System (E2E piPEs) Approach: Collaborative project combining the best work of many organizations, including DANTE/GEANT, Daresbury, EGEE, GGF NMWG, NLANR/DAST, UCL, Georgia Tech, etc. NSF-sponsored workshop:

3 piPEs Enable end-users & network operators to: determine E2E performance capabilities locate E2E problems contact the right person to get an E2E problem resolved. Enable remote initiation of partial path performance tests Make partial path performance data publicly available Interoperable with other performance measurement frameworks

4 Measurement Infrastructure Components

5 Project Phases Phase 1: Tool Beacons BWCTL (Complete), OWAMP (Complete), NDT (Complete), Phase 2: Measurement Domain Support General Measurement Infrastructure (Prototype) Abilene Measurement Infrastructure Deployment (Complete), Phase 3: Federation Support AA (Prototype – optional AES key, policy file, limits file) Discovery (Measurement Nodes, Databases) (Prototype – nearest NDT server, web page) Test Request/Response Schema Support (Prototype – GGF NMWG Schema)

6 piPEs Deployment

7 American / European Collaboration Goals Awareness of ongoing Measurement Framework Efforts / Sharing of Ideas (Good / Not Sufficient) Interoperable Measurement Frameworks (Minimum) Common means of data extraction Partial path analysis possible along transatlantic paths Open Source Shared Development (Possibility, In Whole or In Part) End-to-end partial path analysis for transatlantic research communities VLBI: Haystack, Mass. Onsala, Sweden HENP: Caltech, Calif. CERN, Switzerland

8 Other ongoing collaborations US networks: under aegis of JET Abilene – ESnet deployment already Coordination/deployments for key user communities APAN deployment Tokyo, Fukuoka, Korea(?) Focus bwctl (scheduled tests) GGF NMWG Eric Boyd co-chair Work on creating and revising schemata for test requests and responses Beginning work on a model policy for authorization roles that can be used as a starting point for campuses/domains

9 2 February 2014 Extending the research of R&E networking Report on the April Workshop

10 Background Since Fall 2001, small BoF has met at Internet2 member meetings Focus on sharing information about needs, activities regarding places not well connected to R&E networks –Geographical: e.g. mountains of Chile, island territories of France –Market/Economic: sub-Saharan Africa –Technical: ocean floors, field researchers Fall 2003, proposal to host workshop focusing on development agencies and funding resources Held post Internet2 Spring Member Meeting, Arlington, VA

11 Synergies between NRENs and aid and funding agencies Science, funding and aid agencies: and you are? No or very little knowledge about NRENs and what it is that NRENs do or about programs duplication, costs, lack of coordination expressed interest in exploring actions or activities the group might undertake beyond simple information sharing on an ad hoc basis. Global research and education networking community and key science, funding and aid agencies: How can get to know each other (and know about what we do) Overviews of agencies information and communication technology ICT programmatic areas and related programs The need for the global research and education community to also do outreach on what it is that what we do, what our members do and that illustrate real proof of concept instantiations, show that there are things we could do together

12 Workshop Goals get to know a bit about each other to have a a forum to explore ways in which we may work together to address the challenges in extending the reach of Internet infrastructure and networks in support of research, education and knowledge sharing what do you see as the gap areas – the needs? Before and after the workshop

13 Steering Committee – many thanks! Les Cottrell (SLAC) Curtis White (Allied Communications) Bob Dixon (Ohio State) Heather Boyles (Internet2) Peter Highnam (NIH) Lori Perine (NSF) Micah Beck (UT) Mary Kratz (Internet2) Steven Huter (NSRC, Univ. Oregon) Art St George (Univ. New Mexico) Dany Vandromme (RENATER) George McLaughlin (AARNet) Jim Williams (Indiana Univ) sharon Moskwiak (Internet2) Anil Srivastava, AcrossWorld Ana Preston (Internet2)

14 Expanding the reach of advanced networking Highlights: 80+ participants a keynote speech by Mohamed Muhsin, Vice-President and CIO of the World Bank presentations on programs from several science, funding and aid agencies including the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, the Organization of American States, the World Bank, the Inter-American Development, USAID and other European and Australian agencies for international development. presentations from members of the global research and education community on approaches for expanding network access to resource limited settings and working with agencies

15 Notes from workshop roles of agencies Expect return on investment – self-sustainability – opportunities generated – capabilities and tools – training – project learning plans – road maps they want to work with our community and we want to work with them –Sharing experiences – solutions not just talk Internet as a leveling mechanism there are very compelling illustrations from the global NREN community that show that we can work together

16 Next steps working group – yes defining scope [charter?] of the group –Action: proceedings; mailing list and chair(s) – Action: continue dialogue/bridge with World Bank and all agencies represented here – Action: catalog possible projects and who may be able to lead/manage on behalf of group clearinghouse of info and regular communications – Best practices and lessons learned Case studies that help drive approaches Issues (poverty, education) Pricing and policy What are the needs? We need to have the needs expressed by the ones that have the needs

17 Cont. working together to further articulate the role of NRENs (targeted to government and policy makers ) –Value of NRENs and what they bring to the table – value that enables not just scientific and technological improvements but broader social and economical impact – ROI – targeted to Ministers of Finance Building Capacity Networks are an enabler PEOPLE! Projects that strategically benefit economies, health, environment

19 2 February 2014 Network Security, Middleware and Trust Federations

20 Supported by Indiana University and through relationship with EDUCAUSE and Internet2. The REN-ISAC is an integral part of the higher-ed strategy to improve network security by providing timely warning and response to cyber threat and vulnerabilities, improving awareness, and improving communications. Supports efforts to protect national cyber infrastructure by participating in the formal U.S. ISAC infrastructure. Receives, analyzes, and disseminates network security operational, threat, warning, and attack information within higher education. Information is gathered from instrumentation, constituents, network engineers, DHS, other sector ISACs, other network security organizations, and vendors. 24 x 7 Watch Desk,, +1 (317) 278-6630 Pearson.pdf

21 REN-ISAC Information is derived from: Network instrumentation Abilene NetFlow data Abilene router ACL counters Arbor PeakFlow analysis of NetFlow data Abilene NOC operational monitoring systems Constituents – related to incidents on local networks Network engineers – related to national R&E backbones

22 REN-ISAC Information is derived from: DHS sources include IAIP Daily Open Source Report – Advisories Regular conference calls Other sectors ISACs Other network security organizations Vendors

23 Current and Planned Activities Relationships and outreach to complimentary organizations and efforts REN-ISAC Registry Watch Desk, 24 x 7 Regular information sharing with DHS, ISACs, others Abilene NetFlow analysis Abilene router ACL statistics Arbor PeakFlow analysis Per-host threat reports to member institutions Policy and privacy statements and agreements

24 International Coordination TF-CSIRT Doug Pearson made presentation on REN-ISAC in January 2004 GEANT Revisit network security coordination week after next at meeting in Cambridge Coordinate with GN2 security activities

25 Middleware and security Internet2 Middleware Initiative launched 1999 Focus on enterprise/campus Focus on core middleware (that supports upperware e.g. grid middleware) Focus on inter-institutional authentication and authorization; supporting collaboration, access to digital resources, virtual organizations –eduPerson attributes –Shibboleth authentication transport software –National Trust Federation (InCommon) initially built on institutions using Shibboleth

26 Shibboleth Status Open source, privacy preserving federating software Being very widely deployed in US and international universities SWITCH (Switzerland has adopted) JISC (UK) is adopting; funding development of complementary pieces Growing development activities in several countries, providing resource manager tools, digital rights management, listprocs, etc.

27 InCommon federation Federation operations – Internet2 Federating software – Shibboleth 1.1 and above Federation data schema - eduPerson200210 or later and eduOrg200210 or later Became operational April 5, with several early entrants to help shape the policy issues. Precursor federation, InQueue, has been in operation for about six months and will feed into InCommon

28 International federation peering Shibboleth-based federations being established in the UK, Netherlands, Finland, Switzerland, Australia, Spain, and others International peering meeting slated for October 14-15 in Upper Slaughter, England Issues include agreeing on policy framework, comparing policies, correlating app usage to trust level, aligning privacy needs, working with multinational service providers, scaling the WAYF function

29 Security at Line Speed (SALSA) Ken Klingenstein heading both middleware and security efforts NSF-funded workshop: Security at Line Speed Network authentication, authorization SALSA net-auth working group –Leverage Middleware work: Shibboleth, InCommon, international peering Relationship to mobility work of TERENA, GN2
