An Innovative Solution for Cloud Computing Authentication: Grids of EAP-TLS Smart Cards

The increase of authenticating solutions based on RADIUS servers questions the complexity of their administration whose security and confidentiality are often at fault especially within Cloud Computing architectures. More specifically, it raises the concern of server administration in a secure environment for both the granting access' company and its clients. In this paper, the authors aim to solve this issue by proposing an innovative paradigm based on a grid of smart cards built on a context of SSL smart cards. They believe that EAP-TLS server smart cards offer the security and the simplicity required for an administration based on distributed servers.
