This project just showed up on the BoincStats BAM list. It looks like the project has only existed for a few weeks and only has a couple of teams created so far. New users have to pass an iCAPTCHa to create an account, so (at least for now) accounts cannot be created automatically through account managers like BAM and have to be done directly on the project site. Currently only has applications for Linux hosts.


The project also requires users to specifically give permission to export stats, so make sure you check that box in the preferences.

This is from the linked page:
The iThena distributed project concerns experimental mapping of network structures included in the Internet. The project is in closed beta phase. Currently, the only application available in the project (iThena CNode) performs a sequence of traceroute procedures from client computers. The resulting data is sent back to the server and submitted to the main database, where it can be further analyzed.

Sounds like they are trying to improve tracking people!!! *Tinfoil hat on*

Good read here:

Basically it is a very similar project to the old NetDimes project from years gone by. It is also an NCI project but is kinda heavy on the network equipment as it is doing a lot of traceroutes.
