IU Team Wins Grant for GENI Network Tools

NLR congratulates the Indiana University team, including PI Beth Plale and co-PI Chris Small of IU's Global Research Network Operations Center for being awarded a $484,485 grant from the National Science Foundation to provide essential tools related to the history and authenticity of an experiment's data set (called "provenance") for the Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI) computer network. Such tools are essential because as computer network experiments increase in complexity and size, it has become increasingly difficult to fully understand the circumstances under which a network experiment was run, particularly when it comes time to reproduce the results.
