Trusted CI Begins Engagement with FABRIC

FABRIC: Adaptive Programmable Research Infrastructure for Computer Science and Science Applications, funded under NSF grants 1935966 and 2029261, is a national scale testbed that connects to prior existing testbeds, such as PAWR, as well as the real Internet. FABRIC aims to expand its outreach, enabling new science applications, using a diverse array of networks, integrating machine learning, and preparing the next generation of computer science researchers.

The FABRIC project began in 2019 and reached out to Trusted CI for an engagement during this early phase of development. The engagement goals are focused on reviewing FABRIC's software development process, the trust boundaries in the FABRIC system, and the FABRIC security and monitoring architecture.

We will be publishing a report from the engagement when it concludes in June.
