Description : Virtual Organization Membership Service
In grid computing, and whenever the access to resources may be controlled
by parties external to the resource provider, users may be grouped to
Virtual Organizations (VOs). This package provides a VO Membership Service
(VOMS), which informs on that association between users and their VOs:
groups, roles and capabilities.
This package containts the classical VOMS implementation. The service
can be understood as an account database, which serves the information
in a special format (VOMS credential). The VO manager can administrate
it remotely using command line tools or a web interface.
