Mobile Grid, or Wireless Grid Services refers to value-added Grid Service by processing in Mobile environment. Besides Mobile Internet the traditional Internet computing is experiencing a conceptual shift from Client-Server model to Grid and Peer-to-Peer computing models. As these trends, Mobile Internet and the Grid, are likely to find each other the resource constraints that Wireless devices pose today affect the level of interoperability between them. The goal of this paper is to investigate how well the most limited Wireless devices can make use of Grid Security Services. This paper describes a novel security approach on Mobile Grid Services to validate certificate based on current Mobile XML Web Services Platform environment using XKMS (XML Key Management Specification) and SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language), XACML (extensible Access Control Markup Language) in XML Security mechanism.
