The goal of this session is to investigate scalable and secure solutions to improving the process of distributing data (source code, binaries, documentation and meta-data) to end-users. The key issue in the code distribution process is the ability to transfer a large sized code base to a large number of people.
This session will comprise a set of talks related to several software distribution issues :
Overview of EDOS dissemination platform
Speaker : Dan Vodislav (INRIA and CNAM Paris)
Software dissemination with IDIP
Speaker : Tova Milo (Tel Aviv)
P2P XML processing with KadoP
Speaker : Serge Abiteboul (INRIA)
KadoP is a system for sharing data and knowledge content in a peer to peer environment. KadoP relies on distributed hash tables (DHT) technology, XML indexing and query optimization techniques, and the paradigm of Active XML documents, to enable the publication and efficient large-scale querying of XML-centered content in a P2P environment. KadoP takes advantage of intensional XML documents to dynamically compose data-driven Web services.
Security in EDOS Distribution System
Speaker : Sergio Sagliocco (CSP)
EDOS architecture is based on a P2P overlay network. Some nodes are
considered privileged so the security layer have to guarantee that the
communication between this kind of nodes is authenticated. The goal is to
build a "web of trust" in the EDOS network based on PGP/GPG key rings.
