Abstract: The GridSite relies on the Grid credentials for user authentication and authorization. It does not support username/password pair and attribute-based authorization. Since Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) certificate cannot be installed on all the devices a user will use, access to GridSite protected resources by users while attending conferences, at airport kiosk, working in Internet Café, on holidays etc. is not possible without exposing the certificate's private key on multiple locations. Exposing the private key on multiple locations poses a security risk. This paper describes our work in progress, called ShibVomGSite: a framework that integrates Shibboleth, VOMS and GridSite to solve this problem.
