We consider the problem of remote access control in federated file
services across independent administrative domains. Existing ap-
proaches either establish complex trust relationships between dis-
tinct domains or require frequent update operations among differ-
ent authentication and authorization services. In order to improve
the manageability and scalability of current solutions, we propose
to specify remote access rights on the basis of federation-wide user
groups (virtual groups) instead of individual users. The members
of a virtual group are users that originate from different domains
and undertake a common role in the federation. The realization of
