Executive Summary

High performance Grid applications require high speed network infrastructure that should be capable to provide network connectivity service on-demand. This paper presents results of the development of the AuthoriZation (AuthZ) infrastructure for on-demand multi-domain Network Resource Provisioning (NRP). The authors propose a general Complex Resource Provisioning (CRP) model that can be used as a basis for AuthZ infrastructure development providing a common abstraction for provisioning both network and Grid resources. This model allows common policy expressions, using single user sign-on credentials when requesting and accessing complex Grid-Network resources.
