An Identity-based Non-interactive Authentication Framework for Computational Grids
Keyword(s): No keywords available
Abstract: We examine the authentication framework for Globus Security Infrastructure (GSI, the current grid security standard) and identify a weakness of poor scalability due to heavy interactions between a user- side client and many resource contribution sites. We propose an alternative authentication framework for GSI using authenticated session keys which are shared between two parties without any interactions between them. Our proposal is enabled by an emerging cryptographic technique from the bilinear pairing.
