Introduction

Security is recognised as an important aspect of e-Infrastructures and requires coordination between the EGI participants at various levels, in particular for the prevention and handling of incidents.

To keep a distributed infrastructure secure there is need for a coordination activity of the security effort at NGI and resource center level, and for tools that automatically test the EGI sites for vulnerabilities. The activity ensures the central coordination of security activities, including incident response, vulnerabilities handling and security policies development.

Platforms, HTC, Cloud, Storage, AAI capabilities. Security coordination will have to liaise with the equivalent activities in other e-infrastructures
