This effort will help define GENI security requirements based on investigations through ProtoGENI experiments using at least two aggregates, one of which will be a wireless aggregate. The investigations will use network traffic capture and analysis under both normal and misbehaving situations. The well-articulated experiments will analyze the security and privacy characteristics, test GENI traffic recording and capture tools (following the results from Spiral I and II), and make suggestions for improvements to the ProtoGENI control framework with special emphasis on security improvements.
