Since inception in 2001, FusionGrid developers have worked to secure computational resources in a multi-institutional environment with geographically dispersed users. Recent improvements to grid security have streamlined the usage and administration of resources. More than simply increasing security, these improvements have made FusionGrid security easier for resource administrators and the fusion scientists that use FusionGrid, allowing them to get work done with minimal inconvenience. Improvements in authentication, authorization, and data handling have been welcomed by fusion scientists and promise to ease the burden of adding new resources to the grid.
