New directions for grid security
Security is often a preferred target for fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) around new enterprise technologies. We've seen a steady attack on Linux® security, for example, despite regular end-user feedback that it's more secure than Windows®. And as grid computing pushes forward in its early evolution in the enterprise, it's likely that we're going to hear similar conjecture that grid security isn't ready for primetime adoption. So for this first Grid Stack column, I thought it would be interesting to catch up with some experts in distributed computing security, find out where we are with grid security today and where they see this all headed.
