Dynamic Trust Federation in Grids

Ahsant, M., Surridge, M., Leonard, T. A., Krishna, A. and Mulmo, O. (2006) Dynamic Trust Federation in Grids At The 4th International Conference on Trust Management, Italy. 16 - 19 May 2006.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Grids are becoming economically viable and productive tools. Grids provide a way of utilizing a vast array of linked resources such as computing systems, databases and services online within Virtual Organizations (VO). However, today’s Grid architectures are not capable of supporting dynamic, ag-ile federation across multiple administrative domains and the main barrier, which hinders dynamic federation over short time scales is security. Federating security and trust is one of the most significant architectural issues in Grids. Existing relevant standards and specifications can be used to federate security services, but do not directly address the dynamic extension of business trust re-lationships into the digital domain. In this paper we describe an experiment in which we highlight those challenging architectural issues and we will further describe how the approach that combines dynamic trust federation and dynamic authorization mechanism can address dynamic security trust federation in Grids. The experiment made with the prototype described in this paper is used in the NextGRID project for the definition of requirements for next generation Grid architectures adapted to business application needs
