    445445Experimenters want to be able to offer services on GENI for other slices, or to connect multiple slices together. This is termed 'cross slice stitching'; connecting 2 slices at layer 2. As background, note that GENI has the notion of a 'shared VLAN'. This is a VLAN that gets a name and that is marked public, allowing anyone to connect to it. At InstaGENI, there is a `PerformOperationalAction` to convert a newly allocated LAN into a shared VLAN. This topic was discussed at [wiki:GEC21Agenda/DeveloperRoundtable#Cross-SliceStitching1 GEC21], and again at [wiki:GEC22Agenda/DeveloperRoundtable#CrossSliceStitching1 GEC22].

    447 '''Proposal''': Add to the existing POA `geni_sharelan` a new option `restricted` with default value `false` (old behavior). When true, the created shared VLAN requires a new credential when requesting a connection to this new Shared VLAN.

    448448The POA method will return in this case an entry `geni_credential` that is a GENI SFA credential with owner <user calling the method> and target <sliver  of the shared VLAN, or the shared VLAN in some way; contents are not specified but should be sufficient for the aggregate to authorize the call>.
