Desktop Sharing over SIP

Willem Toorop (System & Network Engineering group from University of Amsterdam) performed a student research project on desktop sharing over SIP during his internship at NLnet foundation. He succesfully identified a number of readily available technologies and components with which such a service (and even a more advanced version that could perform application sharing) could be set up.

Willem demonstrated the feasibility of desktop sharing over SIP by writing a working cross platform standards-compliant demonstrator in Python on top of the Open Source SIP/SIMPLE client stack, allowing to either push or pull remote desktops over SIP.

The results were written down in a paper presented today [Feb 4, 2009] during a seminar at the University of Amsterdam. The code will be publicly available soon through sipsimpleclient.com, the Open Source instant messaging framework sponsored by NLnet.
