Abstract: Grid computing, which is a type of parallel and distributed system that enables the sharing, selection, and aggregation of geographically distributed "autonomous" resources, is one of the currently emerging computing technologies gaining much attention from both researchers and end-users. This thesis is concerned with the study of concepts and components that are used in the deployment of computational Grid, including the testing of its middleware software Globus Toolkit. The study of Grid concepts and components performed by this thesis work includes the construction of sample Grid testbed, followed by testing its performance by using a sample computationally intensive LM Hash cracking application with customizations for Grid environment. As the technology becomes more pervasive and our technological world becomes more complex, without proper and timely acquaintance and understanding of the technology, stakeholders of AAU will find themselves at an increasing disadvantage. The work of introducing Grid computing, by deploying sample Grid testbed, to the users, students and researchers of AAU is one of the timely and economically appropriate works in this regard; and hence the other objective of this thesis work. This thesis also contains a detailed deployment and planning study of Grid construction in the AAU environment. This is further supported by a well-documented step-by-step installation and configuration procedure that is followed in the construction of the sample Grid testbed.
