SecureGrid, a Road Towards Industrial Grade Security for Grids
The ProjectSecureGRID will perform in depth study of the main issues arising in the area of Grid Security Architectures for large multi-user Virtual Organisations and in inter-Grid security and interoperability.
Most of the partners in this consortium have already deployed initial Grid systems on international networks, they now plan to move to safe and secure production use in the immediate future. For this a higher level of security than what provided by standard Grid tools is necessary. Driven by requirements from scientific, industrial and governmental partners, the project will develop specific deployment models, architectures, policies, tools and prototype solutions that will support large Virtual Organizations and multi-user operations across organisations in a secure environment.
The development of Grid security is a key to Grid technology take up within an industrial, financial and governmental context. Within these environments, strong security tools will enable safe and reliable operations and as such will provide the basis for the extension of current Grid deployments from research to industry and to the public sector. The collaboration of industry, government and scientific partners in the same project will allow a better understanding of the potential deployment capabilities of Grid technology as well as allowing the existing Grid community to extend and consolidate current being deployed solutions.
