Hi, Laura:

The screen shots look great. But I have some questions about the 
successfully authentication window.
1) Do we need the authentication to local machine resource? I think the 
access to local machine resource is base on local machine's user account 
rather than Kepler authentication system.

2)Do we need list the network resources (e.g. grid services) the user 
can access? The basic functionality of authentication is send a proxy to 
local kepler machine and kepler can use the proxy to access anywhere 
which can accept the proxy. So I think currently maybe is not necessary 
to list those sources.
