NDG Security

NERC DataGrid? Security is both an architecture and implementation for federated idnetity management and access control. It was first developed for the NERC DataGrid and has been extended to support the Earth System Grid Federation under development to support secure access to the federated data archive for CMIP5 (The Coupled Model Intercomparison Project).


  • Federated Access control infrastructure for the Earth System Grid Federation
  • MashMyData: a NERC funded demonstrator project to create a portal environment for users to combine their data with datasets from distributed sources. It will trial access control with multihop delegation in a workflow.
  • NERC DataGrid 3 Project Activities?
  • Old Project home pages?
