Abstract: While portals to provide grid access in the more familiar Web browser setting have been well received, little has been done to address the difficult the grid security models. We address this by harnessing the Shibboleth environment currently being established in the UK. Shibboleth provides a way of linking home-institute authentication to site independent assertions of a user's identity. Grids on the other hand require Grid Security credentials. SHEBANGS provides translation between the Shibboleth world of identity and the Grid world of cross-domain computing, allowing its users to gain access to grids without leaving the comfort of their favourite Web browser.
