    2323 * Authority or Aggregate Manager (AM). An authority actor controls access to some subset of the substrate components. It corresponds directly to the aggregate manager (AM) in GENI. Typically, an authority controls some set of infrastructure resources in a particular site, autonomous system, transit domain, administrative domain, or component aggregate comprising a set of servers, storage units, network elements, or other components under common ownership and control. Terminology note: the term ''site'' or ''site authority'' (e.g., a cluster site or hosting center) is often used to refer to a substrate authority/AM, as a result of our roots in virtual cloud computing. For network substrates we are using the term ''domain authority'' more often when it is appropriate.
