Grid Group Issues Security Requirements

I saw an interesting news item by Lisa Vaas on eWeek a few days ago and made a note to have a look. The article is titled "Grid Group Issues Security Requirements" and talks about a recent development by the Enterprise Grid Alliance to release a set of security requirement documents that discuss potential grid related security holes and how to patch them. One example is provisioning and de-provisioning of grid components where the media needs to be wiped of any sensitive data. This is an interesting article that has implications for Oracle and its Grid product direction.
