    77 Clearinghouse:: 
    8   A ''clearinghouse'' is a, mostly operational, grouping of a) architectural elements including trust anchors for Management Authorities and Slice Authorities and b) services including user, slice and component registries, a portal for resource discovery, a portal for managing GENI-wide policies, and services needed for operations and management.  They are grouped together because it is expected that the GENI project will need to provide this set of capabilities to bootstrap the facility and, in general, are not exclusive of other instances of similar functions. There will be multiple clearinghouses which will federate. The GENI project will operate the NSF-sponsored clearinghouse. One application of ‘federation’ is as the interface between clearinghouses.

    22   Resource ''federation'' permits the interconnection of independently owned and autonomously administered facilities in a way that permits owners to declare resource allocation and usage policies for substrate facilities under their control, operators to manage the network substrate, and researchers to create and populate slices, allocate resources to them, and run experiment-specific software in them.

    6262 Substrate:: 
    63   GENI provides a set of physical facilities (e.g., routers, processors, links, wireless devices), which we refer to as the ''substrate''. The design of this substrate is concerned with ensuring that physical resources, layout, and interconnection topology are sufficient to support GENI’s research objectives.
