To analyse malicious activity on the Internet, instruments
such as network telescopes and honeypots are effective
tools that can be deployed. Such tools can be deployed in large
scale using Grid computing. Manual deployment of instruments
wastes resources because common tasks and solutions are reinvented
by different deployers and the resulting architectures
are often not interoperable or sufficiently scalable. Research is
underway to develop a framework for scalable and automated
deployment, with Grid technologies providing a promising basis.
The integration of Grid technology with instrumentation has
two inititiatives. These are CIMA and GRIDCC, with GRIDCC
being available as open source. A key area is workflow within
the framework, for which BPEL (Business Process Execution
Language) is used in GRIDCC and considered for initial use for
Grid Enabled Internet Instruments. We have found BPEL has
limitations when implementing such as framework, particularly
in the areas of concurrency and statefullness. We propose
implementation independent workflows and identify extensions
to BPEL in order to realise them. We believe that BPEL with
modification can be used to implement a framework for Internet
instruments–Grid computing integration.
