Grid Enabled Internet Instruments
Project: Grid Enabled Internet Instruments (GEII)
Grid Enabled Internet Instruments (GEII) looks at the synergy between Grid computing and network monitoring and scanning instruments such as network telescopes for Internet Background Radiation (IBR) and honeypot clients for malicious web server detection and exploit identification. Deploying these instruments in a worldwide grid creates a global instrument that collaboratively can be used to map exploits and create quality measures for the Internet.
