GOLD (Grid-based Information Models to Support the Rapid Innovation of New High Value-Added Chemicals) is concerned with the dynamic formation and management of virtual organizations in order to exploit market opportunities. The project aims to deliver the enabling technology to support the creation, operation and successful dissolution of such virtual organizations. A set of middleware technologies has been designed and being implemented to address issues such as trust, security, contract management and monitoring, information management, etc. for virtual collaboration between companies. In this paper we discuss some of the more general requirements for authentication and authorization aspects in GOLD virtual organizations and we use these requirements as benchmark to assess some of the more popular tools that are currently available in dealing with these issues, together with our own approach that addresses these problems.
