IPOP project selected as a mentoring organizations for the 2015 Google Summer of Code.

The IPOP project was selected as one of the 137 mentoring organizations for the 2015 Google Summer of Code. Google Summer of Code is a global program that offers students stipends to write code for open source projects.

IPOP (IP-over-P2P) is an open-source user-centric software virtual network allowing end users to define and create their own virtual private networks (VPNs). IPOP virtual networks provide end-to-end IP tunneling over “TinCan” links setup and managed through a control API to create various software-defined VPN overlays.

The three students selected to join the IPOP project for this event are Srinath Reddy from Stony Brook University, Sushant Raikar from the National Institute Of Technology, Goa, and Teja Theegala from BITS Pilani. The students will work remotely with Dr. Renato Figueiredo and ACIS Graduate student members of the IPOP project. Over the next twelve weeks participants will be developing a user interface for configuring IPOP networks, enhancing IPOP's authentication mechanisms, and implementing an event-driven message passing framework for IPOP controllers.
