One of the features Globus users appreciate is its user-friendly login mechanism. Globus allows users to login using Google, ORCID, or identities from any of the thousands of academic/research organizations that participate in InCommon or eduGAIN.

Did you know you can easily add the Globus login function to your own Apache-hosted website or web application? In this blog post, I’ll demonstrate how to use Globus Auth to do just that.

At GlobusWorld 2018, we announced ongoing work to redesign the Globus web app. We appreciate all the input we have received since then from users who tested the new web app. Today we released a beta version of the new Globus web app, and are looking for feedback from all our users - that means you! Try it now by going to app.globus.org or clicking on the new banner in the current web app.  We value your feedback as we prepare for the production release later this year.

I’m excited to announce that Globus services can now be used to manage protected data, including data regulated by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Globus uses the Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption protocol to secure network communications. In keeping with recommended security practices, Globus is deprecating TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 and requiring a minimum of TSL 1.2. This security upgrade will roll out across all Globus services and downloads during the week of August 27, 2018.

We expect this change to impact only a very small number of users. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact support@globus.org.

My last post introduced the Jupyter “live notebook” environment and explained why our Globus team is working to make it easier to use Globus services in the Jupyter environment. Now, it’s time to share some of the cool things you can do with Globus and Jupyter.

In this post, I’ll cover how to access Globus services in Jupyter notebooks, how to set up a multi-user JupyterHub to use Globus for user logins, and how to access Globus access tokens in a notebook after logging in with Globus.

As you may know, on May 25, 2018, the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will impose new obligations on organizations that control or process personally identifiable information about individuals in Europe.

In response to the GDPR, we have updated the Globus Privacy Notice, effective immediately. Our updated Notice increases the transparency of our privacy practices and clearly enumerates your rights as a Globus user.

Globus hosted a live webinar about the GCS5 release on June 7, 2018. To view the recorded session, click here. To access the slides, click here.

As we announced last week at GlobusWorld, the hosted CLI (legacy CLI) is currently deprecated and support for it will be discontinued on August 1, 2018. The hosted CLI has been replaced by the native CLI application (https://docs.globus.org/cli/) which has been available in production since April 2017.

In the sixth and final article in this series, we turn our attention from on-premise to cloud-based storage. I’ll be addressing four primary types of cloud storage: file storage, object storage, cold storage and file systems, first defining each and then providing my views on how each might be used for research.

Defining Cloud Storage Options: The Facts

Here's a quick overview of the 4 types of cloud storage...
