-- To date, not enough attention has been paid to issues surrounding the description and enforcement of policies for controlling Grid resources. These policies define the permitted or desired usage scenario(s) allowed by resource providers, virtual organizations, or even the governing body for an entire Grid. Most existing Grid systems have either “in-spirit” usage policies with no actual enforcement (e.g., all resource providers are assumed to contribute in kind), or have implicit resource usage policies whose intent can only be manifested by examining the ad-hoc policy enforcement.
