Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper



We propose a novel scheme that uses Trusted Computing technology to secure Grid workflows. This scheme allows the selection of trustworthy resource providers based on their platform states. The integrity and confidentiality of workflow jobs are provided using cryptographic keys that can only be accessed when resource provider platforms are in trustworthy states. In addition, platform attestation is used to detect potential workflow execution problems, and the information collected can be used for process provenance.
