ESP-GRID: Evaluation of Shibboleth and PKI for Grids



The main aim of this project is to investigate how Shibboleth offers solutions to issues of GRID authentication, authorisation and security. It will also reappraise the use of Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) within the UK e-Science GRID and GRIDs in general and will provide a roadmap for integrating the e-Science Core Programme Production GRID within the JISC middleware infrastructure programme.
