The document provides details about the deployment of the Hydra file encryption/decryption service in EGI and provides update on the status of this activity. Hydra will be deployed as a distributed server-triplet to store segments of security users' keys for encrypting and decrypting files located on grid storage services. Using Shamir’s secret sharing algorithm Hydra will provide a secure and fault-tolerant environment file encryption service for communities that need highly se-cured file access on EGI. A Hydra installation for the Life Sciences Heavy User Community of EGI will be also provided by the same team. Progress with the activities is currently pending on waiting for the Hydra software to be ready for gLite 3.2 by the EMI project.
