The wandering token idea relies on a reliable token passing protocol. Such protocol must ensure that the token loss event is infrequent, and that duplication never occurs. In addition, it must allow mutual authentication among the partners. The seminar presents a technical solution to such problems, using a 4 ways UDP protocol. A Perl implementation of our solution is currently under test, and the presentation is somewhat technical.


Augusto Ciuffoletti is a researcher at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Pisa, where he teaches two courses about Internet. He established a strong collaboration with the Italian Institute of Nuclear Physics in the frame of their project for a Computing Grid, and participates to the CoreGRID project as an INFN member. His stay at FORTH institute is part of the of a CoreGRID activity.
