Federating the Grid

Production eInfrastructures, or Grids, are now well established and the number of application communities and users continues to grow. The International Grid Trust Federation (IGTF) has successfully built a global authentication trust fabric based on an X.509 PKI. IGTF is now beginning to (con)federate with the national research and education federations to reach out to a much larger potential community of users. IGTF is also working towards the definition of standards and best practice for authorisation services. This talk will present the current status and future plans.
