Grid data sharing services provide a unified platform for dynamic discovery, access and sharing of distributed data in Grid environments. A common authorization system is needed to provide access control for both Grid data sharing services as well as the data resources that are being shared through these services, accommodating different security requirements from the service providers and the data providers. In this paper, we present a flexible policy-driven authorization system, called RamarsAuthZ, for secure data sharing services in Grid environments. RamarsAuthZ adopts a flexible role-based approach with trust-aware feature to advocate originator control and provide unified access control both at the service level and at the data level.
