GaggleBridge: collaborative data analysis

Posted Posted in News

Florian Battke, Stephan Symons, Alexander Herbig and Kay Nieselt at the University of Tuebingen published a paper on their GaggleBridge software. GaggleBridge transparently extends Gaggle to allow data exchange between users at different geographic locations using network communication. GaggleBridge can automatically set up SSH tunnels to traverse firewalls while adding security features.

GaggleBridge is available as open-source software at http://it.inf.uni-tuebingen.de/gb.
