Reporting period - This report covers work completed January 2004 - March 2004


Work on the scalable and secure peer-to-peer information sharing tool project focused on security and enhancements to the initial prototype implementation

Work on the security aspects focused on improvements of the software components based on feedback from the demo at SuperComputing 2003.  The most significant accomplishments are the addition of distributed groups to the access control software and securing the transport of metadata.

On the information-sharing portion of the project, we have continued to work on a graphical user interface and the application logic.  We have added the following functionality to the application and interface:

We are expecting an initial release of the software in the next quarter.
