Dynamic policy management in mobile grid environments
Mobile Grid Services has given the ability to move jobs, data and application software from nodes to nodes during jobs execution in the grid environment. These migrations depend on the grid’s users and the grid’s nodes policies. The heterogeneity, diversity of policies and attributes leads to a need for policy management tools that can handle these problems. Also, before the users can submit their jobs or run their applications on a certain resource or system they may need to guarantee that this resource or system has not been compromised, which could result in their own application or data being stolen or asking for certain users to be allowed to access the service. To date, not enough attention has been paid to policies that deal with such concerns. Most existing grid systems have support only limited types of policies (e.g. CPU resources). A few designs consider enforcing data policies in their architecture. Therefore, we propose a dynamic policy framework that addresses these issues (user-submitted policy,data policy and multiple Virtual Organizations (VOs).
