Mobile Grid is a full inheritor of the Grid with the additional feature that it supports mobile users and resources. Security is an important aspect in Grid based systems, and it is more complex to ensure this in a mobile platform owing to the limitations of resources in these devices. A Grid infrastructure that supports the participation of mobile nodes and incorporates security aspects will thus play a significant role in the development of Grid computing. The idea of developing software through systematic development processes to improve software quality is not new. However, many information systems such as those of Grid Computing are still not developed through methodologies which have been adapted to their most differentiating features.
