Abstract: The Grid and Web service community are defining a range of stan- dards for a complete solution for security. The National e-Science Cen- tre (NeSC) at the University of Glasgow is investigating how the vari- ous pre-integration components work together in a variety of e-Science projects. The EPSRC-funded nanoCMOS project aims to allow elec- tronics designers and manufacturers to use e-Science technologies and expertise to solve problems of device variability and its impact on sys- tem design. To support the security requirements of nanoCMOS, two NeSC projects (VPMan and OMII-SP) are providing tools to allow easy configuration of security infrastructures, exploiting previous suc- cessful projects using Shibboleth and PERMIS. This paper presents the model in which these tools interoperate to provide secure and sim- ple access to Grid resources for non-technical users.

Keywords: e-Science, Shibboleth, Grid, authentication, authorisation
