The e-Infrastructure for e-Social Sciences project leverages Grid computing technology to provide an integrated platform which enables social science researchers to securely access a variety of e-Science resources. Security underpins the e-Infrastructure and a security framework with authentication and authorization functionality is a core component of the e-Infrastructure for social sciences. To build the security framework, we adopt Shibboleth as the basic authentication and authorization infrastructure and further combine PERMIS advanced authorization technology. As a result, this security framework integrates the advantages of both Shibboleth cross-domain identity federation and PERMIS policy driven role based authorization control, thus presenting a promising security model for secure access to the e-Infrastructure for the social sciences.
