Abstract:
The glexec software provides a mechanism for any Unix user to launch a process as another user based upon the possession of grid credentials. This provides user identity separation for pilot-based batch jobs, a significant security improvement. This document summarizes recent work in improving the usability of glexec. We decrease the complexity of a deploy by removing the need for host certificates and tracking GIDs. We also integrate glexec with the Condor batch system to demonstrate how sysadmins can be better-informed of the users of the cluster.
