Towards Dynamic Authentication in the Grid — Secure and Mobile Business Workflows Using GSet
DOI: 10.1007/978-3-7643-8899-7_6 In book: Economic Models and Algorithms for Distributed Systems, pp.83-104
Until now, the research community mainly focused on the technical aspects of Grid computing and neglected commercial issues.
However, recently the community tends to accept that the success of the Grid is crucially based on commercial exploitation.
In our vision Foster’s and Kesselman’s statement “The Grid is all about sharing.” has to be extended by “... and making money
out of it!”. To allow for the realization of this vision the trust-worthyness of the underlying technology needs to be ensured.
This can be achieved by the use of gSET (Gridified Secure Electronic Transaction) as a basic technology for trust management
and secure accounting in the presented Grid based workflow. We present a framework, conceptually and technically, from the
area of the Mobile-Grid, which justifies the Grid infrastructure as a viable platform to enable commercially successful business
