65213 Increasingly, scientists are developing software with geographically distributed teams. Examples include the National Transport Code Collaboration and the NIMROD collaboration. For new scientists to join such a development team, they must learn how to navigate through the system, build it, and commit changes. Such learning is problematic in this situation, because the relevant expert may not be at the same institution. This project addresses the problem by developing a collaboration environment for code development, known as CoDeveloper. Such an environment would allow participants to work together ¿ synchronously and asynchronously ¿ in the tasks of file editing, build system modification, building and configuring. CoDeveloper will include built-in security mechanisms ¿ authentication, authorization, and encrypted transmission ¿ needed to prevent unauthorized use. In Phase I, security architectures will be investigated for use as mechanisms for authentication and authorization, and encrypted transmission will be implemented. In addition, a code repository mechanism will be incorporated into the system. Commercial Applications And Other Benefits as described by awardee: In addition to impacting DOE concerns, including collaborations on large-scale fusion problems, the collaborative tool should also be useful for commercial code development projects.
