GRID computing implies sharing heterogeneous resources, located in different places belonging to different administrative domains over a heterogeneous network. There is a great similarity between GRID security and classical network security. Moreover, additional requirements specific to GRID environments exist. We present these security requirements and we detail various secured middleware systems. Finally, we give some examples of companies using such systems.
