    51  * A Slice Authority is an entity that creates slice credentials that provide authorization from a trusted source that a given user is entitled to allocate resources for a given slice.
     50 * An Identity Provider (IDP) is an entity that creates user credentials and asserts and manages user attributes.
     51 * A Slice Authority (SA) is an entity that creates slice credentials that provide authorization from a trusted source that a given user is entitled to allocate resources for a given slice.
    5252 * A Clearinghouse provides directory services to point to any authorities or other services that are trusted and supported by the federation associated with that clearinghouse. This includes recognized SA's and AM's (aggregate managers).
    5353 * The GENI federation contains its own services and resources but also services and resources provided by other partner federations,  which may contain their own SA's and IDPs. Thus GENI may have multiple SA's,  CH's and AM's. Conversely, a CH, SA or AM may belong to multiple federations.
