Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to investigate the authentication and access control mechanisms for Global Environment Network Innovation (GENI). First, we will deliver an extensive survey of the existing authentication and access control techniques in general. We will then study how authentication and access control policies of GENI projects are implemented and how these mechanisms are integrated into the project control frameworks. Finally, we will summarise the advantages and disadvantages of the authentication and access control methods employed in GENI. We believe that the given review is valuable to those who are interested in the internal design of the current GENI security mechanisms.
Keywords: GENI authentication; access control; GENI security; network security.
