Heartbleed bug and PlanetLab

There has been a lot of discussion recently in regard to a security vulnerability in a version of OpenSSL, commonly known as the “Heartbleed Bug.”
Heartbleed affects OpenSSL, used by a majority of the web to securely send data.

PlanetLab Europe web services have been updated with the latest, fixed, version of OpenSSL, while nodes don’t expose services affected by the Heartbleed bug.

OpenFlow support in PlanetLab

PlanetLab Europe (PLE) now supports OpenFlow capabilities through a modified version of OpenVSwtich called sliver-ovs. Experimenters will be able to create an OpenFlow overlay network by specifying the links between PLE nodes.
Tools and documentation are available here.

Free documentation for PlanetLab testbed administrators

Set up and run your own PlanetLab testbed

The OneLab operations team has made the PlanetLab Europe management-level documentation set available, useful for those who wish to create their own PlanetLab testbed. It aims to document the management processes for a PlanetLab system (such as PlanetLab Europe or a private PlanetLab) based on the OneLab build software.

EmanicsLab Testbed Federates with PLE

We are pleased to announce the federation of the EmanicsLab testbed with PlanetLab Europe (PLE), and other testbeds in the EmanicsLab is a private PlanetLab testbed, and is managed by the Communication Systems Group at the University of Zurich.

ELTE's Location Survey

Where are the PlanetLab Europe nodes today?

In several research scenarios the geographic location of the measurement nodes plays a significant role. Such information is provided by the site information collection at PlanetLab Central. However, in this collection a relatively large number of the PlanetLab nodes are mislocated, with a varying magnitude of error.

PLE Video: Monitoring

A video overview of the monitoring capabilities on PlanetLab is now available.
