Goals of this Project
GridAuth is a user credential management system for distributed data and computational grids. GridAuth is configurable and extensible to just about any system requiring credential management, advanced authorization and secure authentication.

The goal of GridAuth is to provide a centrally managed distributed grid account system that simplifies development of grid-based applications and completely abstracts the complexities of grid infrastructure from users. This enables a true single-sign-on environment where users do not need to manage (for example) X.509 keys or Kerberos tickets but still gain the benefits from a secure infrastructure.

GridAuth is created and maintained by members of NEESit and the San Diego Supercomputer Center.
