    33== Definitions and Terminology == 
    4  Plane:: Loosely, a set of IP endpoints with mutual connectivity, either in a private IP space, subnet, VLAN or through public IP addresses. 
     4 Plane:: Loosely, a set of endpoints with mutual connectivity. 
    55 
    6  Management plane:: A site authority (aggregate manager) uses the ''management plane'' to interact with  its substrate components, and possibly with slivers hosted on its substrate components.  
     6 Management plane - a plane with layer 3 (IP) connectivity:: A site authority (aggregate manager) uses the ''management plane'' to interact with  its substrate components, and possibly with slivers hosted on its substrate components.  
    77 
    88   Eg 1 The management address space for the BEN domain, which includes the dom-0 machines in each Eucalyptus cluster 
     
    1212 In our world, multiple aggregates may share the same management plane, but ignore that for now. 
    1313 
    14  Data plane:: Every slice has its own ''data plane'' by which slivers within the slice interact with each other. Constructing the data plane is the central goal of this project. All else is bookkeeping. 
     14 Data plane:: Every slice has its own ''data plane'' by which slivers within the slice interact with each other. Constructing the data plane is the central goal of this project. All else is bookkeeping. Note that data plane is by no means layer 3. It may be layer 2 or even layer 1. 
    1515 
    1616   Eg Virtual machines within a slice on a shared subnet/VLAN across multiple Eucalyptus sites. 
    1717 
    18  Control plane:: The GENI ''control plane'' consists of actors that interact with each other through public IP space. They include authorities (aggregate managers), clearinghouses and the controller for each slice (guest controller or service manager in Orca).
