  Description     : Execution Environment Service for the ARGUS framework

 The EES is a service that can procure execution environments on Grid
 sites.  These execution environments can be as simple as an existing
 Unix user account to which the supplied user credentials are mapped
 or as complex as deploying full virtual machines for a user. 

 The role of the EES is to ensure that an appropriate site-specific
 execution environment is procured based on the site-agnostic
 obligations and attributes it receives as input in the form of
 SAML2-XACML2 requests. It responds to requests from the Policy
 Decision Point (PDP), but can also act as a standalone service.
