Trust and Security in Virtual Communities
Friday 14 March 2008
In many Scientific disciplines, the models, data and methods have significant commercial value. Scientists in these sectors are often unwilling to exploit the full potential of distributed computing because there remains a Trust Gap between the scientist's requirements and present technological capabilities.
This is a barrier to the take-up of eScience technologies in significant sectors such as bioinformatics, drug discovery and finance: any confidentiality breach would be unacceptable.
In an e-Science seminar, Andrew Martin (link opens in a new window) spoke about the eScience Institute Theme (link opens in a new window) for "Trust and Security in Virtual Communities". This work aims to connect the detailed technical requirements of scientific application areas to the emerging technologies for improved trust to set an agenda for the next generation of grid security development.
