Abstract: The development of teaching materials for future software engineers is critical to the long term success of the Grid. At present however there is considerable turmoil in the Grid community both within the standards and the technology base underpinning these standards. In this context, it is especially challenging to develop teaching materials that have some sort of lifetime beyond the next wave of Grid middleware and standards. In addition, the current way in which Grid security is supported and delivered has two key problems. Firstly in the case of the UK e-Science community, scalability issues arise from a central certificate authority. Secondly, the current security mechanisms used by the Grid community are not fine grained enough. In this paper we outline how these issues are being addressed through the development of a Grid Computing module supported by an advanced authorisation infrastructure at the University of Glasgow.
