Automatic Control and Computer Sciences Aims and scope Submit manuscript


The issue of providing information security for data and computing resources in grid networks is reviewed. Specific features of architecture of distributed computing networks based on grid platforms are analyzed. Security threats specific for grid systems are typified. The available measures ensuring security for grid systems are considered, and their drawbacks are indicated. The set of applied issues associated with ensuring grid protection from unauthorized access is defined.
