    3434  A realization is the binding of resources to an experiment.  Users can inspect and modify such bindings in carrying out their experiments.
    3535
    36 We describe each of these in more detail below.  They are interrelated and the descriptions link to one another in this document.  We intend for readers to jump between sections to help intuition.
     36
     37Projects and circles are related in that they control access to testbed resources. 
     38
     39Membership in an approved project means a user can access testbed
     40resources in general.  They've been trusted directly or by transitivity
     41by the testbed administration to have "an account" to which usage can be
     42charged and responsibility delegated.  Projects must be approved by
     43administrators to confer rights.
     44
     45Membership in a circle allows users to specify fine grained access
     46between one another.  None of the circle memberships are effective
     47unless the user is also in an approved project.  Circles do not need to
     48be vetted by admins because their powers are gated by projects.
     49
     50Being in a project means a user can use DETERLab.  Being in the circle of
     51users that can read an experiment means a user can use that particular
     52experiment in that particular way (assuming that the user is in an approved
     53project).
     54
     55We describe each of these abstractions in more detail below.  They are interrelated and the descriptions link to one another in this document.  We intend for readers to jump between sections to help intuition.
