    9 ==== Description ====
    10 This workshop will bring together people interested in the topic of attribution in GENI.  Attribution, as defined by the organizers of this workshop, is the binding of data (called a characteristic) with an entity (person,  process,        file,   other   data, etc).     The     goal   
    11 of     
    12 attribution     
    13 is     
    14 to      show    that    the     characteristic  associated      with     an     
    15 entity has      a       particular      value,  or      one     of a    particular      set     of      values. The     purpose for     using   attribution     is      often   to      provide accountability—in       a       cyber-security  context attribution     is      generally       used    to      determine       who     is      initiating      an      attack 
    16 and     therefore       assumed to       be     good    and     desirable.     
     9=== Description ===
     10  This session will bring together members of the GENI community working with or developing attribution in its broadest form, including identity, specific characteristics such as packet origin and size, and other attributes relevant to experiments being conducted or to the operation and maintenance of GENI.
     12=== Objectives ===
     13  The goals of this session are to brainstorm on how different GENI projects plan to develop and use attribution, what attributes they plan to develop for use and would like to develop; and what properties of an attribution infrastructure would best meet their needs, the needs of experimenters, and enable the operators of GENI to manage and protect GENI. We expect to develop a list or description of these attributes, and ideas about the infrastructure and its interfaces.
     15=== Background Reading ===
