Grid users and their jobs need credentials to access grid resources and services. It is important to minimize the exposure of credentials to adversaries. A practical solution is needed that works with existing software and is easy to deploy, administer, and maintain. Thus, credential management services are the wave of the future for virtual organizations such as Grid computing. This paper describes architecture of a scalable, secure and reliable on-line credential management service called SafeBox for InterGrid computing platform. SafeBox provides InterGrid users with secure mechanism for storing one or multiple credentials and access them based on need at anytime from anywhere.
