Security for Collaboration among Infrastructures
The Security for Collaborating Infrastructures (SCI) group is a collaborative activity of security staff from several large-scale distributed computing infrastructures, including EGI, OSG, PRACE, wLCG, and XSEDE. SCI is developing a framework to enable interoperation of collaborating Infrastructures with the aim of managing cross-infrastructure operational security risks and to build trust and develop policy standards for collaboration especially in cases where we cannot just share identical security policy documents.
In recent years we have seen the implementation of a variety of infrastructures supporting distributed computing environments and sharing of resources. Each such infrastructure consists of distributed computing resources, users (who may or may not be divided into separate user communities), and a set of policies and procedures. Examples of such infrastructures include computing and data infrastructures and/or clouds, as well as cooperating computing facilities managed by different organisations.
