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.”
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.
The MySlice user interface has been presented as a demo implementation to an American audience at the 12th GENI Engineering Conference (GEC12), November 2-4 2011 in Kansas City, USA.
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.

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