Design and Implementation of GUISET-Driven Authentication Framework
Authentication is the process of identifying a user on the basis of the credentials provided. In reality, the user does not necessarily have to be a person; it can be an application that is making a remote call from the intranet or Internet. Different Grid domains provide different security policies and GUISET is not an exception. Authentication ensures that each application or user must be able to identify itself by providing the required credentials. With an exponential increase in the number of users and applications in GUISET infrastructure, the need for authentication becomes inevitable.
