Grid computing aspires to integrate technology and solutions, which enable and control access to computing resources. Grid computing provides a way to execute applications over autonomous, distributed and heterogeneous nodes. The main goal of grid technology is to allow sharing of resources and services under a set of rules and policies, which govern the conditions for access to the resources. This paper reviews the state of security and access control for resources in grid environment and presents a secured model for resource access in grid environment.
