Security of today’s large scale, open, distributed heterogeneous systems (such as computational grids, peer-to-peer systems, pervasive/ubiquitous computing, etc.) has become a mainstream operational concern. Establishment of in-depth security services and trust relationships are the most desirable features for such systems. I have proposed a security architecture to address the comprehensive security needs of these systems (Naqvi & Riguidel, 2004a). Extensive groundwork was carried out to determine the limitations and shortcomings of the existing security solutions for these systems and to establish the real needs of the security architecture in order to reduce performance overheads and to provide robust security (Naqvi & Riguidel, 2004b). These include requirements analysis (Naqvi & Riguidel, 2005a), risk analysis (Naqvi & Riguidel, 2003), threat modeling (Naqvi & Riguidel, 2005b), and implementation feasibility (Naqvi, Riguidel, & Demeure, 2005).
