    2222== 1. Get GENI Credentials ==
    24 To access GENI resources, an experimenter must have GENI credentials!  Credentials are associated with a project that a Principal Investigator or Faculty Member has set up at the [ project request] page.  The responsible PI or faculty member should contact  [] to start the project creation process. The GPO will need to get a rough understanding of the kinds of experiments planned and can work with you to identify the GENI resources you may need. At this point, you can use the project name at the GPO ProtoGENI Clearing House to submit an [ account request]. Project and account requests examples are captured in the [wiki:GENIExperimenter/ExperimentCredentials GENI Credentials] page. Additionally, GENI credentials can be requested at various Clearinghouses including [ PlanetLab] and [ ProtoGENI] (Emulab) sites. 
     24To access GENI resources, an experimenter must have GENI credentials!  Follow the instructions at SignMeUp.
    2626The Clearinghouse must have a copy of your existing or newly generated SSH public key, which is placed on the allocated resource to allow access.  The Omni tools automatically upload your SSH public key when you create a slice, so if you plan to use Omni tools you can skip the manual SSH key upload. Without Omni tools, this is done manually by logging into the server ([ GPO ProtoGENI],[ PlanetLab], or [ Emulab]) and uploading the SSH keys that you will use to run the experiment.  For [ PlanetLab], the ssh key manual uploaded is in the ''My Account'' page in the ''keys'' section. For ProtoGENI [ Emulab], the manual key uploaded in the ''Profile'' tab in the ''Edit SSH Keys'' page.
