Abstract: This paper describes a lightweight interim solution to the problem of authentication in grid environments that removes the burden of digital certificates from the end-user's experience of the grid environment. In doing so it increases the usability of the grid environment (and so arguably its security). It is intended to be deployed in existing grid environments, interfacing smoothly with their existing authentication and authorisation mechanisms, rather than replacing the existing authentication mechanisms. A number of other features are provided that may also be of interest to those involved in deploying grid environments.
