Abstract

Trust domain management for the global access of a grid is managed under centralized schema for most of the current grid architectures, which are designed based on the concept that there is only one grid for every grid member, therefore requiring central management for authentication and authorization. This design not only has its own limitations, but it is also awkward when a member of a grid may also be a member of other intersecting grids. Schema for such multi-grid environments have not been well thought out. In this paper, we present a schema that enables trust domain management in a dynamic multi-grid environment.
