Abstract

Grid supports heterogeneities of resources in terms of security and computational power. Applications with stringent security requirement introduce challenging concerns when executed on the grid resources. Though grid scheduler considers the computational heterogeneity while making scheduling decisions, little is done to address their security heterogeneity. This work proposes a security aware computational grid scheduling model, which schedules the tasks taking into account both kinds of heterogeneities. The approach is known as Security Prioritized MinMin (SPMinMin). Comparing it with one of the widely used grid scheduling algorithm, MinMin (secured) shows that SPMinMin performs better and sometimes behaves similar to MinMin under all possible situations in terms of makespan and system utilization.
