Abstract: The potential benefits and advantages that Grid Computing can bring to society in different fields of human endeavour are many and varied. These benefits however, can only be usefully realised if they can be implemented securely. Currently, there are many standards in the Grid community for enforcing security, particularly authorization, and no single specification has been adopted as the definitive solution. This leads to the situation where the standards and specifications that are available must be rigorously tested, applied and compared before being used in a production context. This paper outlines applied security measures undertaken in the BRIDGES project (Biomedical Research Informatics Delivered through Grid-Enabled Services) that exemplify these issues. A discussion of the security problems, inherent in both the computational and the data strands of this project, is presented along with the solutions implemented at NeSC (National e-Science Centre).
