Reporting period - This report covers work completed September 2003 - December 2003


Work on the scalable and secure peer-to-peer information sharing tool project focused on security and enhancements to the initial prototype implementation. The prototype was demonstrated at Supercomputing 2003.

Work on the security aspects focused on the design and implementation of software components.  The most significant accomplishment was the  incorporation of access control into the scishare application (using Akenti as the authorization engine).

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:

The initial software release has been delayed as we are waiting for clearance from the LBNL patent department.
