Abstract

In this article the new trend in authorisation decision making will be described, using the Security Assertions Mark up Language (SAML). We then present an overview of the Globus Toolkit (GT), used in Grid computing environments, and highlight its authorisation requirements. We then introduce the PERMIS authorisation infrastructure and describe how it has been adapted to support SAML so that it can be deployed to make authorisation decisions for GTversion 3.3.
