     48== Getting Access to GENI and GENI Resources ==
     49
     50Experimenters need an account to use GENI and can get an account from any one of GENI's federated authorities called ''clearinghouses''.   Commonly used clearinghouses include the [https://portal.geni.net GENI Experimenter Portal], the [http://www.emulab.net Emulab] and [https://www.planet-lab.org !PlanetLab].
     51
     52GENI aggregates federate with one or more clearinghouses i.e. they choose to trust GENI accounts issued by these clearinghouses.  Most GENI aggregates federate with all three of the clearinghouses listed above.
