DEMI GETSCHKO NOMEADO PARA O HALL DA FAMA DA INTERNET
Demi Getschko é o primeiro brasileiro a ser nomeado para o Hall da Fama da Internet em cerimônia em 8 de abril de 2014, em Hong-Kong.
O “Hall da Fama da Internet”, criado em 2012 pela “Internet Society”, homenageia lideranças e inovadores do mundo todo que fizeram contribuições extraordinárias para a mudança na vida dos cidadãos com o uso da Internet. Os prêmios são oferecidos em três categorias: “Pioneers Circle”, “Innovators” e “Global Connectors”.
Demi Getschko, engenheiro eletricista, foi nomeado na categoria de “Global Connectors”, que reconhece aqueles que fizeram contribuições significativas para o crescimento e o uso global da Internet.
Getschko, brasileiro, nascido em Trieste, Itália, iniciou a graduação em 1971, em Engenharia Elétrica na Escola Politécnica da Universidade de São Paulo e concluiu o Doutorado pela mesma universidade em 1989. De 1971 a 1985, trabalhou no CCE-USP (Centro de Computação Eletrônica da Universidade de São Paulo). De 1985 a 1996, trabalhou no CPD-Fapesp (Centro de Processamento de Dados da Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo) e foi o primeiro Coordenador Técnico da Rede ANSP.
Até 2009, foi membro da Diretoria da ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers). É conselheiro do CGI.br (Comitê Gestor da Internet no Brasil), desde 1995, e Diretor-Presidente do NIC.br (Núcleo de Informação e Coordenação do .br). É professor associado da PUC-SP (Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo), onde leciona Arquitetura de Computadores e coordena o PUCSPNetLab, laboratório da Camada 2 do Projeto KyaTera da Fapesp.
A equipe da ANSP parabeniza o Prof. Getschko e sente-se honrada por esse prêmio ter lhe sido atribuído em função de seu trabalho na ANSP no período de 1989 a 1996, que levou à consolidação da RNP (Rede Nacional de Ensino e Pesquisa) e da própria Internet brasileira.

SCIELO BRAZIL, A MEMBER OF ANSP, ONCE AGAIN ATTAINS LEADERSHIP IN THE "WEB RANKING OF WORLD REPOSITORIES"
SciELO BRAZIL, a participant in the ANSP Ecosystem, has once again secured first place in the international ranking of repositories
SciELO Brazil (Scientific Electronic Library Online - Brazil) has retained its leadership in the category "Top Portals" in the "Web Ranking of World Repositories" the goal of which is to promote and support initiatives to disseminate scientific publications with open access to the academic community. The site provides a list of repositories geared to research and is organized according to web indicators, which include visibility of the link, number of pages listed by Google, number of rich files (files in .doc, .docx, .ppt, .pptx, .pdf, .ps, .eps), and standardized articles available online, using the Google Scholar as database.
SciELO Brazil, a member of the ANSP Ecosystem (an Academic Network at São Paulo), is an electronic library of Brazilian scientific journals with over 300 titles in its collection. It is a project of FAPESP (São Paulo Research Foundation), in partnership with BIREME (Latin American and Caribbean Center on Health Sciences) and with support from CNPq (National Council for Scientific and Technological Development).
Anna Paula A. Costa, from NARA-USP (Center for Applications in Advanced Networks -Medical School, University of São Paulo), explains that ANSP provides a professional and high availability infrastructure required for the SciELO servers she hosts.
Prof. Luis Fernandez Lopez, ANSP’s Principal Investigator, says that "ANSP feels very proud to be the provider of the data center and internet for a project of this level of excellence" and congratulates the SciELO team for having won first place for the fourth consecutive year in such a prestigious ranking.

A LOOKING GLASS FOR ANSP IS ANNOUNCED
At the request of the ANSP Ecosystem community, a looking glass for ANSP was installed in January 2014.
Commencing on 31/01/2014, ANSP has begun to offer a new service to its ecosystem community: a looking glass for ANSP has been installed. A looking glass, also known as a router proxy, is a very simple web interface that can be used by network administrators to run limited commands on routers in order to troubleshoot routing problems.
Several institutions have a looking glass, such as RNP (National Research and Education Network) and AMPATH (Pathway of the Americas).
The ANSP looking glass, after going through the testing phase for internal use, has been approved and installed, and is now available for community use on the ANSP page, under "Network and Services".
ANSP has started the year 2014 offering one more relevant service to the members of the ANSP Ecosystem.

ANSP IMPLEMENTS NETWORK CERTIFICATION AUTHORITY (CA) FOR COMPUTATIONAL GRIDS
After two years of development and testing, the ANSP network, in collaboration with NCC-UNESP, officially deploys the service of issuing digital certificates to science.
After five years of administrative, scientific and operational work, ANSP (an Academic Network at São Paulo) and the NCC-UNESP network (Center for Scientific Computing at the "Júlio de Mesquita Filho" São Paulo State University) have, this December 2013, officially put into full operation the Certification Authority (CA) for computational grids in the State of São Paulo: ANSPGridCA (ANSP Grid Certification Authority).
Computational grids are distributed and interconnected data storage and processing resources, designed to meet the needs of geographically dispersed groups of users. The management of this cooperative environment involves security issues that require mechanisms for authenticating users and resources in order to establish priorities and levels of access. In academia, the architecture of grid computing has become a major tool for collaboration on large projects of national and international research.
A major advantage of this architecture is the availability of large computing resources for researchers and their acceptance into the international community of grid users. In the academic area, the security grid is regulated by GSI (Grid Security Infrastructure) which uses public key cryptography, also known as "asymmetric cryptography" as a basis for its functionality. Each user, service, and each grid server is identified by a digital certificate. The issuance of these certificates is undertaken by a Certification Authority that follows the guidelines set by IGTF (International Grid Trust Federation).
The creation of a Certification Authority in the State of São Paulo has been a longstanding demand of the scientists engaged in grid computing, who until now were obliged to obtain their certificates from authorities in the United States or Europe, via a lengthy administrative process.
The ANSPGridCA (ANSP Grid Certification Authority) was recognized by TAGPMA (The Americas Grid Policy Management Authority) in the first half of 2012, and by TACAR (TERENA Academic Certification Authority Repository) in the second half of the same year, and began to issue certificates in March 2013, initially only for GridUNESP. After nine months of testing and learning, the certificate production regime has now been opened up to the entire academic community of São Paulo.
The cryptographic security module, HSM (Hardware Security Module), which generates the cryptographic key used for signing digital certificates, is manufactured in Brazil using Brazilian technology, and it is installed in the NCC-UNESP data center, in the city of São Paulo.
Prof. Luis Fernandez Lopez, Coordinator of the ANSP network, says the goal now is to serve the entire scientific community of São Paulo: “We invite the researchers from São Paulo, requiring grid certificates, to avail themselves of the services of ANSPGridCA.”
