Monday 11th April 2005, London

Nesc logo

An important part of the emerging e-Infrastructure is the security framework and mechanisms. At this meeting we will have representatives from the major Grid and related infrastructure activities to discuss their approaches to this problem. A goal for the meeting is to provide both an overview of the important issues in building secure interoperable infrastructure.

We hope to use the findings of the meeting as the basis for a security roadmap for the UK e-Science Programme.
