This paper describes an emulation of a distributed access control system proposed for use in the GENI network testbed. We use our trust management system, CERTDIST, to realize the system policy, and measure its performance by mapping PlanetLab’s centralized access control scheme to GENI’s distributed scheme and then replaying logs of PlanetLab access control activity. Our log analysis indicates that any such system must be resilient to both misconfigurations and attacks, and our emulation results show the effect of caching schemes and certificate expiration intervals in reducing load on servers and improving response time.
