Session Description (include details of proposed agenda, potential speakers and expected outcomes)

This session is open for contributions that would describe Grid security philosophies
and models. These could include descriptions of current middleware stacks or
completely new ideas. In this session, it could be expected to agree on the strong
points of the security models and point the way for future work. Potential speakers would be
the security leaders of middleware projects and also anyone else that can propose
alternative models/implementations.

Project(s) or EGEE activity presenting the demo or poster (project or activity names only)

JRA1, Christoph Witzig, John White, Francesco Giacomini.

Please indicate your preferred day to give a demo.



The various middleware stacks each follow their overall security models and
implementations. These security models have become entrenched over the
projects' lifetimes and could be revisited. In the context of future unification
and interoperability of the middleware stacks, it is necessary to ensure the
security models are coherent.

Special requirements other than the set up mentioned in the CfA text.
