Security and scalable user management is one of the key challenges facing the e-Research community. The very nature of deploying new Gridenabled services involves the adoption of robust and highly complex underlying technologies such as PKIs. When used correctly, these tools allow many problems in the security domain to be tackled effectively, however in the hands of the inexperienced user, the complexities of building and using these technologies can expose the system to the same weaknesses that the system is trying to mitigate.
