Abstract: The NERC DataGrid project began in September 2002. The key aim of the project is to provide access to data holdings that lie in a (possibly very) loosely coupled federation of sites sharing at the minimum a set of common discovery, authentication, authorisation, and access protocols. While it is anticipated that much of the data will be publicly available, the NDG aims to provide secure access to protected data where trust relationships exist between data providers. The NDG design does not assume one central repository for all metadata, nor does it assume common policies (although it does require a common policy framework). However, following the “search engine” philosophy, search engines will be free to harvest publicly available “discovery metadata” using standard digital library protocols to produce high performance discovery engines. The NDG has a working prototype discovery engine, and a software infrastructure that is designed to allow migration of services to new grid architectures as easily as possible.
