Getting Credentials from the CloudLab Portal

CloudLab only provides your x509 certificate from the web interface. You will have to provide your own SSH public key for use with geni-lib when you set up your context for using reserved resources.

  • Log in to the CloudLab Portal.
  • From the <your-username> dropdown at the top right of the interface, select the Download Credentials option
  • Save this text (either via copy/paste or Save As… in your brower) to a file called cloudlab.pem for use when creating your context.

You will also need to take note of the projects of which you are a member, in order to set up your context. You can view your projects by clicking on the Membership tab on the user dashboard interface.
