The Secure Storage service for the gLite middleware provides users with a set of tools for storing data securely and in an encrypted format on the grid storage elements. Data is accessible and readable by authorized users only. Moreover, it solves the insider abuse problem by also preventing administrators of the storage elements from accessing the confidential data in a clear format. The service has been designed and developed for the grid middleware of the EGEE Project, gLite, in the context of the TriGrid VL Project.
