In today's networked world, computers rarely work in isolation. In this paper the authors present a comparative study of distributed systems and the security issues associated with those systems. Four commonly used distributed systems were considered for detailed analysis in terms of technologies involved, security issues faced by them and solution proposed to circumvent those issues. Finally the security issues and the solutions were summarized and compared with each other. In literature, researchers have used diverse definitions to outline what a distributed system is.
