Global Lambda Integrated Facility

DICE Collaboration



Europe: DANTE; GN2 project
The Netherlands: University of Amsterdam
United States: Internet2; ESnet; DRAGON project


CANARIE, ESnet, GÉANT2 and Internet2 are building a strategic initiative on Trans-Atlantic cooperation within the framework of the GÉANT2 technical programme. Regular technical meetings provide an opportunity to discuss issues of common interest, helping to build a more complete picture of the international context in which we operate.

In particular, University of Amsterdam is working with DICE to integrate its Token-Based AAA mechanism inside OSCARS (ESnet domain controller development) and DRAGON (GMPLS-based control plane/ routing/resource brokering functions). This work will also be embedded into Phosphorus.
