Grids have emerged as the basic infrastructure for high performance distributed computing and data collaborations. Although they depict an attractive new world of computing, security is the biggest barrier against wide adoption of Grids. Authentication is the basis of security in grids. GSI uses X.509 PKI and proxy certificates as authentication foundation, and uses gateway for mapping certificates between different authentication mechanisms. In this article, we review PKI and PKI-based… CONTINUE READING
