The security framework helps to assure accountability of user actions and objects within shared Croquet environments. In this way, IAA serves to establish the mechanism by which each client has verifiable information about the authorship of all client-created objects and other users within the Croquet environments.
This security framework will ensure that communications between peers is not easily repudiated. With these security assurances in place, the Croquet space can provide trusted relationships necessary to the enablement and support of collaborative learning and research. Members of the UM School of Engineering, for example, may be able to locate and leverage the online presence and content of colleagues within the Department of Computer Sciences at UW and securely initiate innovative cross-disciplinary collaborations that might not otherwise have emerged.…
Thank you for visiting Croquetproject.org.
Croquet is being built upon the shoulders of giants. In particular, the existence and power of Squeak has allowed us to convert our respective dreams into a combined reality that exceeded all of our individual expectations. Many thanks go to the Squeak Central team for providing us both an optimal environment within which to create such a beast, and for the help and encouragement they have provided to us throughout the process. In particular, thanks to Dan Ingalls, Ted Kaehler, Scott Wallace, and John Maloney. We couldn’t have done this without them. We also thank Kim Rose for her enthusiastic support and relentless advocacy of this effort.
Building any new architecture is a stressful endeavor, but perhaps this one is particularly so.…
We very much hope that you will join us in improving the system. Keep in mind that any code you contribute to the Croquet effort must be made available under the Croquet license terms. To help you get the most out of Croquet, we have set up a list server specifically for use by developers. That list server is the best source of community-based support for those working with Croquet and can be accessed here.
In order to reduce the load on our servers, the Croquet SDK is being made available via BitTorrent.

Graphics cards and their drivers are crucial to Croquet’s compatibility and performance. Be sure that your graphics card is OpenGL 1.3 or higher compliant AND that you have appropriate OpenGL hardware drivers installed.…
