    77=== History === 
    8 NDG Security has been developed over two projects NDG1 and NDG2 and sister projec DEWS.  At its inception no security system existed to satisfy the above requirements.  However, it has been developed in such a way that it should be able to evolve towards the use of community standards as they become more prevalent and best practice becomes clearer. This provides the focus for the OMII-UK follow-on project.

    11 NDG Security employs a web services based architecture enabling different combinations of components to be deployed according to a participating site's needs and requirements. Access control decisions are handled by Gatekeepers and mediated by Attribute Authorities. X.509 certificates are used to assert identity, and bespoke XML tokens to handle authorization. Session Manager and MyProxy services can be used for management of credentials. NDG Security supports web based and application client interfaces. The system is developed in the Python programming language.
