A Multipolicy Authorization Framework for Grid Security

A Multipolicy Authorization Framework for Grid Security
A Grid system is a Virtual Organization that is composed of several autonomous domains. Authorization in such a system needs to be flexible and scalable to support multiple security policies. Basing on the Web Services security specifications such as XACML, SAML, and the special security needs of the Grid computing, we have constructed an authorization framework in the Globus Toolkit 4 that can support multiple policies. This paper describes the concepts of our design and introduces the structure and the components of the authorization framework. To show the flexibility and scalability of the framework, we introduce a new blacklist/whitelist-based authorization mechanism that can be seamlessly integrated into the framework. Keywords Authorization Framework, Grid Computing, Globus Toolkit, Blacklist/Whitelist-based Authorization
