FiRST (Future Internet Research for Sustainable Test-bed) is the future internet platform development project being performed in Korea. The goal of the project is to create the virtualized and dynamic service creation environments over future internet networks; it is an experimental project to realize future innovative service ideas over real network environments. Among this, cloud computing is the key enabler to control and allocate virtualized network resources (such as CPU, storage, and virtualized network configuration) for the requested services. However, researches on interworking between future internet and cloud computing is in initial phase. In this paper, we propose the FiRST Cloud Aggregate Manager (AM) based on GENI (Global Environment for Network Innovation) AM Application Programming Interface (API) for the federation between future internet test-bed and open source OpenStack cloud computing platform. After that, we propose the zero-client service for mobile cloud management. In order to control the zero-client service, we develop Cloud Mobility Client/Server. And, we validate and verified our FiRST Cloud AM and zero-client service by developing experimental test-bed. Through this test-bed, we confirm that the proposed FiRST Cloud AM and zero-client service efficiently interworks with future internet control plane framework by using GENI Control Framework (GCF) tools.
