Abstract

We extend previous work on formalising design patterns to start the development of security patterns for Grid systems. We demonstrate the feasibility of our approach with a case study involving a deployed security architecture in a Grid Operating System called XtreemOS. A number of Grid security management capabilities that aid the secure settingup and running of a Grid are presented. We outline the functionality needed for such cases in a general form, which could be utilised when considering the development of similar large-scale systems in the future. We also specifically describe the use of authentication patterns that model the extension of trust from a secure core, and indicate how these patterns can be composed, specialised and instantiated.
