[Return to Programme List]
The issues of authentication and authorisation are of central importance to securely managing access to resources connected to the Grid.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together those building Grid environments and those in the university IT community with responsibility for managing access to computing resources to review current work on authentication and authorisation and to identify practical workable solutions for use with the Grid.
