2008 (English)In: Euro-Par 2007 Workshops: Parallel Processing / [ed] Bouge, L; Forsell, M; Traff, JL; Streit, A; Ziegler, W; Alexander, M; Childs, S, 2008, Vol. 4854, 104-111 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Authentication interoperability between the UNICORE grid middleware system and other Grid middleware systems is addressed. An approach to extending the UNICORE authentication model to support a proxy certificate (RFC3280) profile is presented. This optional feature can then be enabled based on site policy. Furthermore, the addition capacitates further advances related to authorization. With interoperability becoming a key issue in many production environments, extending the generality of UNICORE in this way opens up the possibility of direct and general interoperability scenarios.
