@section[#:tag "geni-users"]{Account Integration for GENI Users}
We are in the process of enabling accounts from the
@hyperlink[""]{GENI} facility and its federates to work
directly with @(tb). When this integration is complete, all users with accounts
at GENI identity providers (such as the
@hyperlink[""]{GENI Portal}) will be able to use those
accounts on @(tb) without the need to create a new account. This feature will
make use of the @hyperlink[""]{GENI trusted
signer} for authentication and authorization.

If you already have a @hyperlink[""]{GENI} account,

page, select the ``GENI User'' button. You will be taken to a page like
the one below to select where you normally log into your GENI account.
From here, you will be taken to the login page of your GENI federate; for
example, the login page for the @hyperlink[""]{GENI
portal} is shown below.
After you log in, you will asked to authorize the @(tb) portal to use
this account on your behalf. If your ceritifcate at your GENI aggregate
has a passphrase on it, you may be asked to enter that passphrase; if not,
(as is the case with the GENI portal) you will simply see an ``authorize''
button as below:
That's it! When you log in a second time, some of these steps may be
skipped, as your browser has them cached.
