Securing Computational Grids

IEEE Computer Society, Northern Virginia Chapter
Monday, May 16, 2005; Held at Oracle Facility, Reston, Virginia, 6:00 - 9:00pm

Computational grids, particularly those that operate outside a controlled enterprise environment, make attractive black hat targets, not only for the power they wield, but also for the sheer expanse of their potential vulnerabilities. Even the providers of power and the users thereof must be presumed untrustworthy. This talk identifies many of the security threats to which public computational grids are exposed and discusses the approaches that are being used in practice for addressing such.
