The Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG) infrastructure has been built up for the storage and analysis of the very large data volumes that will be recorded by the LHC experiments. Its existing security mechanisms and policies are foreseen to evolve in various respects, for example with an increasing use of virtual machines, pilot jobs, clouds, enhancements to data storage and access models, and potential integration with single sign-on campus-wide or federated identity management systems. To steer such evolution, input from the HEPiX community would be very desirable.
