A major policy requirement at Fermilab is that users of our computing resources must be registered and current. Rather than implement this through maintenance of separate gridmapfiles for each Grid Resource, FNAL has implemented a Site Authorization Service (SAZ). This structure parallels our current site authentication structure where sitewide access decisions are controlled centrally (by issuing KRB5 TGT's) and resource access decisions are controlled locally (though /etc/passwd entries). This service is similar in concept to the LCAS projects within EDG. Recent discussions between Globus, EDG, FNAL, and GGF Authentication WG (proposed) chair has lead to a proposal for a standard site authorization callout. Current status and compatability information will be presented.
