GT Security (GSI)

The Globus Toolkit incorporates multiple security components that establish the identity of users or services (authentication), protect communications, and determine who is allowed to perform what actions (authorization), as well as manage user credentials.

  • GSI C: The Globus Toolkit GSI C component provides APIs and tools for authentication, authorization and certificate management.
  • MyProxy: MyProxy is open source software for managing X.509 Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) security credentials (certificates and private keys).
  • GSI-OpenSSH: GSI-OpenSSH is a modified version of OpenSSH that adds support for X.509 proxy certificate authentication and delegation, providing a single sign-on remote login and file transfer service.
