Abstract: The DyVOSE project has successfully deployed grid services secured with the PERMIS authorisation software implementing a static Privilege Management Infrastructure (PMI) model. The second stage of this project focuses on the extension of the current PERMIS infrastructure to include dynamic delegation of authority and cross-certification of institutional security policies. This paper describes the existing static PMI that has been used within the Grid Computing module as part of the advanced MSc at Glasgow University. We also outline an e-Science education use-case that highlights how dynamic PMIs can be established using an extended version of PERMIS and utilising the Internet2 Shibboleth software to transfer user attributes and authentication tokens across organisational boundaries.
