Session 1c Security
Chair: Shirley Wood, UKERNA, United Kingdom
 
Users within education and research organisations rely more and more on the Internet for all their interactions with collaborators and colleagues. Network security is becoming more important to all of us and we have to be sure that our Internet interactions are carried out in a secure manner to protect our research and business interests. This session will investigate the various encryption techniques and whether they are useable by all users within an organisation

Session 1d Middleware - Directories
Chair: Michael Gettes, Duke University, USA
 
Directories, specialised high-performance databases used to enable applications to easily scale to very large environments, have become a critical component to the academic mission of most universities around the globe. Understanding which products perform well, how to define data elements in a common fashion to foster interoperability and to understand how directories will be used in the future is critical to the future success of a university. This session will explore these areas and more.

Session 2d Middleware - Authentication
Chair: Michael Gettes, Duke University, USA
 
The identity of any element in a network (user, server, application) must, of course, be established using appropriate data. But this is not enough: this identity must be asserted to other elements, avoiding the multiplication of identities for the same element, without requiring the revelation of private data. This session presents the status of the middleware efforts in building robust, open and reliable networked authentication infrastructures.

Session 3a Bridging the Gap between Users and NRENs
Chair: Victor Reijs, HEAnet, Ireland
 

It is often difficult to obtain knowledge about the actual end-users of the services provided by National Research and Education Networks. This session will provide some ideas how to get a better knowledge of the end-user, so that the services provided are more relevant to their needs. The general accessibility of the Internet will also be covered, in light of the "European Year of People with Disabilities".

Session 3b Network Technologies - Practical Experiences
Chair: John Dyer, TERENA
 

The Internet Routing Registry system is not spreading quickly enough due to a supposed lack of consistency. The first talk will explain the issues and propose a mechanism to prevent increased inconsistency on RRR databases. The second presentation will address the implementation of end-to-end Virtual Private Networks services in the European IP NRENs. It will investigate the different solutions developed by the industry, with a closer look at the techniques allowing end-to-end services through several independent IP domains. The final paper in the session reports on the projects initiated and supported by the European Space Agency related to IP networking over satellite. A number of issues such as security, QoS and multicast have been addressed taking into account the specific satellite context. Furthermore, some planned projects related to satellite and IPv6 and further work on multicast, security and QoS will be described.

Session 3c P2P
Chair: Jean-Paul le Guigner, CRU, France
 

Since mid-2000, the impact of P2P technology has been dramatic and undeniable. From technical to ethical and legal challenges, to interesting relationships with networking and computing, and challenges in many environments (Research and Education, corporate) p2p has proven that it is something we need to pay attention to. This session will give a brief overview of the P2P landscape, along with an overview of the most pressing and interesting challenges within the technology and a glimpse into how P2P models can also enable a new set of applications in research, science, and teaching and learning. The approach to establish a P2P-network within a National Research Network to serve the needs of scientific research and promote the exchange of knowledge and information will be discussed in more detail.

Session 3d Middleware - Authorisation
Chair: Diego R. López, RedIRIS, Spain
 
As networks offer a richer fabric of services, the assessment of rights to use them becomes more complicated. Traditional and simple yes/no policies can no longer be applied in a growing set of scenarios. Authorisation constitutes the next frontier in middleware, implying not only new protocols (syntax) but the ability to capture real-world rules and procedures: semantics.

Session 4c P2P
Chair: Jean-Paul le Guigner, CRU, France
 

The first talk focuses on P2P computing and presents some recent software platforms: XtremWeb and BOINC (successor of SETI@home) harnessing a large set of PCs for distributed computing. It presents some applications used in industry and academia and also some feedback demonstrating that a lot of issues are still to be addressed. The second presentation explores the recent democratisation of the P2P file sharing tools which has caused a considerable increase in traffic on many networks, ascending as well as descending, and has even become a commercial argument for some ISPs. However, the point of view of academic networks is somewhat different.

Session 8d Mobility
Chair: Shirley Wood, UKERNA, United Kingdom
 
Active users of the Internet rely more and more on having access to their e-mail and other services at any time of the day and from wherever they are. Their requirements to access all services from wherever they are often at odds with the aims of the IT manager who wants to protect his services from potential hackers to the system. This session will look at the options available for last mile access to the network and how remote users can receive their IT services from wherever they are and at whatever time of the day.
