Grid Authorization Based on Existing AAA Architectures

Manuel Sánchez, Gabriel López, Óscar Cánovas, Antonio F. Gómez-Skarmeta

Abstract

Grid computing has appeared as a new paradigm to cover the needs of modern scientific applications. A lot of research has been done in this field, but several issues are still open. One of them, the Grid authorization, is probably one of the most important topics regarding to resource providers, because they need to control the users accessing their resources. Several authorization architectures have been proposed, including in some cases new elements which introduce redundant components to the system. In this paper, we propose a new scheme which takes advantage of a previously existing underlying authorization infrastructure among the involved organizations, the NAS-SAML system, to build a Grid environment with an advanced and extensible authorization mechanism.
