Abstract

Grid is designed with no security in mind at first. The complexity and scalability of grid architecture make easy for intruders to attack the system in several ways. In this paper, we discuss several possible or known vulnerabilities existing in each layer of the grid system. Attackers can take advantage of such vulnerabilities to break into grid systems and exploit grid resource to launch Denial of Service attack targeting servers located outside the grid such as mission critical web servers, or internal node inside the grid by shutting down one of important grid components.
