Reporting period - This report covers work completed June, 2002 - August, 2002


Work on the scalable and secure peer-to-peer information sharing tool project focused on three primary areas this quarter:  planning an overall design, design of the initial prototype implementation, and establishing an initial user population.


Overall Design


The key use cases for the project software were identified and documented this quarter.  Defining these use cases is helping us to plan the evolution path for the software and capabilities from the initial prototype to the final version of this project.  We have also begun to identify the primary research directions we will pursue this first year.


Initial Prototype


We have begun work on specifying the design for the initial prototype implementation.  We have identified the module boundaries and specified interfaces for the interaction of the software modules.  We have also specified the prototype format of the messages used by peers for communication.  In the next quarter we will begin implementation of the initial prototype.


Initial User Population


We have identified the Access Grid community as a target initial user population.  Specifically, we have begun a discussion with members of the Middleware to Support Group to Group Communication project about future collaboration and integration of software components.
