     2=== What is NDG Security? === 
     3NDG Security is the security system for the NERC Data Grid. NDG Security has been developed to provide users with seamless access to secured resources across NDG participating organisations whilst at the same time providing an underlying system which is easy to deploy around organisation's pre-existing systems. NDG Security is designed around a Role Based Access Control mechanism. Cross organisational access to resources is enabled through bilateral trust agreements between participating organisations expressed through a system for single sign and role mapping.

    4 This activity provides a software infrastructure to provide controlled access to resources, and logging of such access (in the case of NDG, DEWS uses another infrastructure for logging).

    6 Although it applies in both DEWS and NDG, hereafter we will call the security infrastructure discussed here NDG Security, to distinguish it from other security paradigms and infrastructures.
