The problem of securely monitoring the grid, in which a group of different entities provide and exchanging confidential information has become a significant task for an efficient use of shared resources. In this paper, a Web based secure grid monitoring framework is presented which permits resources to be monitored only by authorized users. The proposed framework provides monitoring a grid environment comprehensively, with low overhead for authentication and authorization purposes. Another advantage of our framework is that complex authorization policies for grid monitoring can be easily applied.
