Develop a proof of concept for a novel multi-domain on-demand VPN connectivity service for research and education communities connected through participating NREN networks and the GÉANT network.
CoCo enables scientists to dynamically create a private and secure virtual network in which scientists can share resources, such as Virtual Machines (VMs), storage, microscopes and other facilities, amongst collaborators. CoCo's services are exposed through a simple and easy to use interface via the Internet, which developers can also include in their applications. CoCo provides a service similar to MD-VPN, but based on an OpenFlow infrastructure. Moreover, it automatically sets up and manages a virtual network for a community across multiple domains, without needing the help of network operators to set up these instances.
