Abstract
Grid applications need for coordination infrastructures that are secure and scalable with both the vast number of potential users and the enormous volume of information that may be exchanged. However, building middleware for these purposes that scales to accommodate the Grid requirements remains a complex problem. In this paper we present a middleware infrastructure that supports the creation of secure shared spaces scaling virtually to any number of users by defining security policies with regular expressions over distinguished names. We propose an XML representation for tuples in the shared space, an infrastructure of XSQL pages for accessing them, and a security model that supports authentication, privacy, integrity and authorization. Our approach leverages on existing standard technologies like XML, XSL, and HTTP favouring coordination between existing applications and future Web Services.
