Reporting period - This report covers work completed April 2004 - June 2004
Work on the scalable and secure peer-to-peer information sharing tool project focused on publicizing our security work and the initial public release of the implementation.
Work on the security aspects focused on publishing the work accomplished to date. We have succeeded in this and have a paper accepted for publication.
We have also succeeded in putting together an initial public release of the software. It is located at http://www.dsd.lbl.gov/scishare.
