In this paper, the authors describe new security solutions for grid middleware, specifically it faces the issues related to the management of users' and servers' credentials together with the storing and secure data transmission in grid. Their paper, built on Grid Security Infrastructure (GSI) provides new capabilities to be used on top of different Grid middleware, with a low level of changes. Currently, this work is implemented on gLite and accomplishes the access to Grid resources in a uniform and transparent way.
