Abstract: 
In this paper, we present a Grid system that enables distributed data mining, exploration and sharing to address issues described above which involve distributed data analysis and multiple ownerships. The system addresses the three main requirements of distributed data mining on Grid: 1) exploitation of geographically and organizationally distributed computing resources to solve data-intensive data mining problem, 2) ensuring the security and privacy of sensitive data, 3) supporting seamless data/computing resource sharing. We present the system architecture, specification of the component services, security consideration, a prototype of the system, and performance evaluation.
