A Grid is a collection of resources that are available for an application to perform tasks. Grid resources are heterogeneous, geographically distributed and belong to different administrative domains. Hence security is a major concern in a grid system. Authentication, message integrity and confidentiality are the major concerns in grid security. Secure group communication is brought about by effective key distribution to authenticated users of the channels serviced by resources. The proposed approach facilitates reduced computation and efficient group communication. It also ensures efficient rekeying for each communication session. The security protocol has been implemented and tested using Globus middleware.
