     59Access to the local datastore is restricted through the use of certificates enabling an SSL connection.  When a new request comes in,  the following occurs:
     60
     61 * Make sure the SSL certificate is signed by a GENI trust anchor.  The local datastore webserver is configured to do this check. 
     62 * The certificate is passed along to the application which parses out the URN. 
     63 * Last, the URN is checked to see if it is on the whitelist (those with permission to access operational data).
     64 * The polling is answered as outlined above on this page.

     66The whitelist can be maintained centrally and the local datastores can poll to update their whitelist (infrequently).
