G. von Laszewski and M. Sosonkin, "A Grid Certificate Authority for Community and Ad-hoc Grids," Preprint ANL/MCS-P1216-0105, January 2005. [pdf]
One of the most important issues in Grid computing is to provide a secure environment that allows administrators to contribute their resources and users to utilize them. Currently diverse methods are required to obtain certificates for the different Grids. In this paper we showcase a prototype of a tool that simplifies the tasks associated with maintaining a Grid certificate authority and simplifies the application process for the user to interact with multiple certificate authorities.
