    1823'''1. Why do I need certificates and keys?'''
    2126     Your [ SSH] key (not to be confused with your SSL key) is used to log into compute resources provided by GENI aggregates.  Aggregates typically use private-public key pairs instead of passwords are commonly to authenticate ssh logins.   When an aggregate provisions a compute resource and make it available to your slice, it installs your public key on the resource.  You must make sure your ssh client is configured to find your corresponding private key when you attempt to log into your compute resources.  For more information on setting up your keys and your ssh client, see [wiki:HowTo/LoginToNodes this page].
     29== Topics of Interest to Campus Network Operators ==
     30'''1. How can my campus participate in GENI?'''
     31    You can GENI-enable your campus by hosting a GENI-rack and/or deploying !OpenFlow technology on your campus network.  See [wiki:GENIAggregateProviderWelcome Aggregate Providers Page] and email [].
