A trust degree based access control in grid environments

Luo, Junzhou and Ni, Xudong and Yong, Jianming (2009) A trust degree based access control in grid environments. Information Sciences, 179 (15). pp. 2618-2628. ISSN 0020-0255


The purpose of grid computing is to enable coordinated resource sharing and support cooperative work between different domains in dynamic grid environments. In order to protect each participant’s privilege and security, a secure and efficient access control is essential.
This paper presents a new approach of access mechanism based on trust relationships across domains. A new calculation method of trust in grid is proposed and the difference between intro-domain trust and inter-domain trust is analyzed. In addition, a novel access control framework combined with trust degree is given from this proposal. It is shown to be adaptive for both intro-domain and inter-domain conditions. Hence, a prototype system
based on the proposed model is introduced; furthermore, it has been shown as a dynamic and fine-granularity access control method through performance analyses and has also been demonstrated as a suitable system for grid environments.
