XTREEMOS: Building and promoting a Linuxbased operating system to support virtual organizations for next generation grids

Project ID: 033576
Funded under: FP6-IST

Abstract

A financial firm cooperating with research institutions on financial data analysis, a telecommunication service provider performing joint market research with a cell phone manufacturer, or a business solution provider working with a client company all need to share and aggregate data that is stored in a distributed fashion on different computers, while ensuring that their partners can only access selected parts of information and that all information is secured from third party access. Regardless of whether the data is distributed for performance, security or legal reasons, the concept of virtual organizations that is built into the core of Xtreemos allows them to express their needs in the form of VO membership, roles and policies, which are then enforced by the underlying Xtreemos authentication, authorization and auditing based on industry-standard X.509 certificate infrastructure.
