Abstract: Many of the existing security components and frameworks for computational grid environments either suffer from significant usability issues for end-users and/or administrators, or their administration and deployment is extremely complex and resource-intensive. This has lead to a situation where using such environments securely is so difficult that end-users either refuse to use them or else deliberately use them in an insecure fashion. In this paper we describe work underway to provide more user-friendly security mechanisms for computational grid environments.
