This Grid computing harnesses the power of thousands interconnected processors and their associated storage as a single entity. Instead of using a network of computers simply to communicate and transfer data, Grid computing taps the unused processor cycles of numerous computers. Because of this distributed Virtual Organisation of Grid, security of Grid computing is very complex and most important issue. In this paper, the authors tried to analyze the existing security architecture and proposed a novel architecture along with concerned algorithm for the purpose of authentication issue in Grid computing environment.
