Abstract

Web based scientific applications have provided a means to share scientific data across diverse groups and disciplines extending beyond the local computing environment. But the organization and sharing of large and heterogeneous data pose challenges due to their sensitive nature. In this paper we analyze the security requirements of scientific applications and present an authorization model that facilitates the organization and sharing of data without compromising the security of data.
