Abstract

The interest to incorporate mobile devices into Grid systems has arisen with two main purposes. The first one is to enrich users of these devices while the other is that of enriching the own Grid infrastructure. Security of these systems, due to their distributed and open nature, is considered a topic of great interest. A formal approach to security in the software life cycle is essential to protect corporate resources. However, little attention has been paid to this aspect of software development. Due to its criticality, security should be integrated as a formal approach into the software life cycle. We are developing a methodology of development for secure mobile Grid computing based systems that helps to design and build secure Grid systems with support for mobile devices directed by use cases and security use cases and focused on service-oriented security architecture. In this paper, we will present one of the first steps of our methodology consisting of analyzing security requirements of mobile grid systems. This analysis will allow us to obtain a set of security requirements that our methodology must cover and implement.
