    This thesis reasons on usage control in Data Grids, by presenting models, architectures and specifications. This work is a step toward a continuous monitoring and control of the data access and usage in a Data Grid. First, the thesis presents a background on Grids, security, and security for Grids, by making an abstraction to the current Grid implementations. We argue that usage control in Data Grids should be considered as a process composed by two black boxes. We analysed the requirements for Grid security, and propose a distributed usage control model suitable for Grids and distributed systems alike. Then, we apply such model to a Data Grid abstraction, and present a usage control architecture for Data Grids that uses the functional components of the currents Grids. We also present an abstract specification for an enforcing mechanism for usage control policies. To do so, we use a formal requirement engineering methodology with a bottom-up approach, that proves that the specification is sound and complete. With the methodology, we show formally that such abstract specification can enforce all the different typologies of usage control policies. Finally, we consider how existing prototypes can fit in the proposed architecture, and the advantages derived from using Semantic Grid techologies for the specification of policies subjects and objects.
