Secure Grid Filesystem
This research was conducted to realize a file system that achieves security and user-convenience on a Grid environment. On a Grid environment, in general, users with different security attributes needs to access data with different access control requirements. In this research, we have developed a secure grid file system named GSI-SFS that achieves the following five requirements: SDI (Single Disk Image), On-demand access, Exclusiveness, data confidentiality, and user-convenience, by leveraging GSI (Grid Security Infrastructure) and SFS (Self-certigying File System).
This research was partly supported by MEXT IT program “Construction of supercomputer network” promoted by the Cybermedia Center, Osaka University.
