Welcome to the GENI Wiki

This is the GENI Wiki, a living repository for information relating to the GENI design and GPO-led design process. The structure, governance, and charters for GENI working groups can be found wiki:GeniWorkingGroups. To get a write account for this wiki, join a working group mailing list (any GENI list with a "-wg" suffix).

GENI Announcements

Project Feature

The BGP Mux project and PI Nick Feamster are featured on the homepage. Prior feature articles have highlighted ORBIT, GUSH, Enterprise GENI, and ORCA. (3/2/10)

GENI Spiral 2

GENI Spiral 2 has kicked off with Design and Prototyping projects focusing on increased integration, interoperability, identity management, and instrumentation & measurement. In addition, Meso-Scale Prototyping projects are deploying promising technologies in 8-12 locations. Project pages are listed at wiki:SpiralTwo.

New GPO Documents

3/15/10 GENI Security Plan: The plans presented in this document are motivated by: (1) The tremendous growth of GENI by the end of Spiral 2: By the end of Spiral 2 GENI will have been deployed in over a dozen campus networks and will have over twenty aggregates providing resources for use by experimenters, and (2) An increase in the numbers of researchers expected to use GENI for experimentation. The plans described in this document are Spiral 2 activities in preparation for this growth by Spiral 3. pdf

3/10/10 GENI Recommended Use Policy: Common guidelines for using the suite of GENI infrastructures to the GENI community. GENI participants should be willing to follow the guidelines, and to support GENI community efforts to implement this policy. (Adopted Recommendation) pdf

3/8/10 GENI Instrumentation and Measurement Architecture: This document defines the architecture for the GENI instrumentation and measurement subsystem. It is an early DRAFT, to be used for discussion in the GENI Instrumentation and Measurement working group, starting at the GEC7 meeting. (Draft Recommendation) pdf

Old Announcements

GENI Meetings

GENI Engineering Conferences.

The GEC is the GENI Project Office’s (GPO) regular open working meeting where researchers, developers, industrial & international partners and the GPO meet to advance infrastructure planning and prototyping for the GENI project. Further, the GEC focuses on how to design and build a suite of infrastructure that can best inspire and support creative research. The conference is open to all. The dates and locations below should be considered mostly firm until registration opens.

GEC1 October 9-11, 2007 Minneapolis, MN archives
GEC2 March 3-4, 2008 Arlington, VA archives

Working Group Pages

Working groups are expected to be the locus of technical work required to develop the GENI architecture and design. They will author & review requirements and design documents and evaluate software and services contributed by Working Group (WG) members (some of which may be sponsored by the GENI Project Office). Working groups are expected to provide input to integration activities, design bake-offs, and other prototyping tasks. Emphasis is placed on technical contribution, including expression of the research community's needs and use cases, regardless of the source of financial support. Academic, industrial, and government lab participants are encouraged. wiki:GeniWorkingGroups

Each GENI working group has its own wiki home page:

  • Campus/Operations, Management, Integration and Security WG -- wiki:GeniOmis

The following GENI working group is no longer active, but its results on opt-in and privacy are still of interest to GENI:

SPIRAL 2 Integration Information

The GENI Project Office works with projects to post information on what they are doing at wiki:SpiralTwo. These pages include project technical information, schedules and milestones, and information from related projects not funded by GENI. Keeping these pages current helps make planning, participating, and integrating easier for the GENI community.


GPO Documents: The GPO publishes system engineering and integration documents specifying the GENI design, integration, and operations at wiki:GpoDoc.

Working Group Documents: GENI working groups develop and publish documents. Unless otherwise noted, these documents represent the consensus of the publishing working group. Working drafts can be found on the individual working group wiki pages.

Contributed Documents: Documents contributed by members of the GENI community. May come from D&P projects. A listing may be found at wiki:ContributedDocs.

Older Documents: Pre-GPO documents (from 2005-2007) can be found at wiki:OldGPGDesignDocuments.

Mailing Lists

It is a very good idea to subscribe to the GENI Announce list. If you are a GENI technology developer, you should aslo subscribe to the GENI Developer list.

  • GENI Announce is a moderated list carrying important announcements about upcoming meetings, solicitations, and other useful information for the developer community.
  • dev is an open list for GENI prototype developers.

See working group pages for information on working group mailing lists.

GENI Wiki Information

Getting Started: See wiki:GeniWikiGettingStarted for information on how to post and site-wide conventions.

Admin: Need help? Contact Operations

Wiki Docs: GENI is using the Trac wiki and issue tracking software package. All GENI members currently share a single wiki. For help with the Trac software, including pages that explain how to format wiki text and create new pages, TracGuide is a good place to start. Please contact Operations for help, changes, or problems with this site.

Permissions: You must log in to the project wiki before you can edit any page. See wiki:GeniWikiGettingStarted for how to get a login. Most pages in the wiki are editable by any logged-in user. This page (WikiStart) is a read-only page (admins can read and write). Project milestones can only be edited by the GPO. Contact a GPO member or Operations if you want to make changes to this or any other read-only page.
