GridAuth is a user credential management system for distributed data and
computational grids. GridAuth is configurable and extensible to just about
any system requiring credential management, advanced authorization and secure authentication.
The goal of GridAuth is to provide a centrally managed distributed grid account
system that simplifies development of grid-based applications and completely abstracts
the complexities of grid infrastructure from users. This enables a true single-sign-on
environment where users do not need to manage (for example) X.509 keys or Kerberos tickets but still
gain the benefits from a secure infrastructure.
GridAuth is created and maintained by members of
