  1. TERENA General Assembly Sofia, Bulgaria24 October 2008 Christoph GrafTERENA VP Technical Programme christoph.graf@switch.ch TERENA Technical Programme Update

  2. Overview • Special Interest Areas (SIAs) • Technical Task Forces: • TF-CSIRT, TF-ECS, TF-EMC2, TF-Mobility, TF-Storage • Technical Workshops: • E2E Provisioning Workshop • TERENA Small Projects: • NREN Enhanced Communications Server (N-ECS) • External Projects: • FEDERICA • Related Services: • TACAR, SCHAC, SCS, TI

  3. SIAs • Lower-layer technologies (Layers 0-4) • Security • Middleware • Mobility • Voice and Video Collaboration • Virtualisation In addition, Campus and End-to-End issue coordination are challenges that have an impact across all special interest areas, while Grid collaborations span many of the areas.

  4. TF-CSIRT THE networking platform for security teams in Europe Beyond NRENs (GovCERTs, ISPs) & liaising beyond Europe Currently 70+ participants at meetings 3 times/year Running period: 2000 - May 2010 Task Force Chair: Gorazd Božič -> Lionel Ferrette Task Force Secretary: Kevin Meynell, TERENA Was rechartered in May 2008 for another 2-year period, with new and revised activities. Services: Trusted Introducer (TI), TRANSITS courses Activities: IRT object in RIPE database Open-source incident handling system Security toolkit training (with GN2 JRA2) CSIRT exercises (with ENISA) Drill exercises Establishment of new CSIRTs

  5. TF-ECS SIP and friends for voice, IM and presence From “SIP rules” to “connecting SIP islands” Running period: October 2006 - September 2008 Co-Chairs: Erik Dobbelsteijn, TWIYO, Fabio Vena, SWITCH Secretary: Peter Szegedi, TERENA Achievements: Fully functional SIP/H.323 open-source communication server for the NREN environment known as N-ECS (and its documentation) Future: Challenges in real-time video communications (plans to be rechartered) Workshop on Media Recording and Repository – follow up from BoF at TNC in Bruges

  6. TERENA Project: Manual for ”NREN - Enhanced Communications Server” (N-ECS) • Jumpstarting SIP playground with NREN goodies (nrenum.net, GDS) • Running period: March 2008 - October 2008 • Contractor: Erik Dobbelsteijn, TWIYO • TERENA contact person: Peter Szegedi • Achievement: • Input: preconfigured N-ECS images (can be downloaded) • Output: final text of the manual: ”TERENA SIP Handbook” (done, can be downloaded soon) • http://www.terena.org/n-ecs/
