Joint Security Policy Group (JSPG) Mandate

The LCG Security Group was formed in 2003 and mandated to advise and make recommendations to the LCG Grid Deployment Manager and the LCG Grid Deployment Board (GDB) on matters related to LCG Security.
With the start of EGEE in April 2004, it was agreed that the remit of this group would expand to meet the needs of both EGEE and LCG.
From the early days there has been strong participation by Open Science Grid (OSG) in the USA with the aim of defining common policies across EGEE, OSG and LCG.
Other Grid infrastructures have more recently joined the group, including DEISA, SEE-Grid and NDGF.
The word "Joint" describes the fact that this body defines and maintains policy for several Grids.
