The Dynamic Accounts (formerly Work Space Service WSS) is a component of the Globus Toolkit v4 that allows a Grid client to dynamically create and manage a workspace, implemented as a Unix account, on a remote site. It supports account pooling on a gridmapdir like system that interoperates with and leverages LCMAPS.

See the Installation notes for more details.

Note that this system has not experienced wide deployment in a production environment yet.
