Security underpins Grids and e-Research. Without a
robust, reliable and simple Grid security infrastructure
combined with commonly accepted security practices, large
portions of the research community and wider industry will not
engage. The predominant way in which security is currently
addressed in the Grid community is through Public Key
Infrastructures (PKI) based upon X.509 certificates to support
authentication. Whilst PKIs address user identity issues,
authentication does not provide fine grained control over what
users are allowed to do on remote resources (authorization). In
this paper we outline how we have successfully combined
Shibboleth and advanced authorization technologies to provide
simplified (from the user perspective) but fine grained security
for access to and usage of Grid resources. We demonstrate this
approach through different security focused e-Science projects
being conducted at the National e-Science Centre (NeSC) at the
University of Glasgow. We believe that this model will be more
widely applicable and encourage the further uptake of e-Science
by non-IT specialists in the research communities.
