Used by researchers and students from all fields of science, XSEDE coordinates access to the National Science Foundation’s public supercomputing systems, such as Texas Advanced Computing Center’s Stampede2 and Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center’s Bridges.
GlobusWorld 2019 has issued its Call for Presentations. The event takes place May 1-2 in Chicago. The event centers around Globus, a secure, reliable research data management service that enables researchers to move, share, publish & discover data via a single interface.
Powered by Globus Auth, XSEDE's Web Single Sign-On (Web SSO) service provides a uniform, consistent, secure way to sign on to web applications using XSEDE user IDs.
Science gateway and application developers can use XSEDE's Web SSO to enable users to sign-on (login) to an application using either campus or XSEDE credentials. This service is based on Globus Auth, an OpenID Connect/OAuth 2.0 service provided by Globus at the University of Chicago.
Widely deployed platform now offers higher assurance levels for data containing PHI, PII, and CUI.
For scientists who need to manage HIPAA-regulated data or other Protected Health Information (PHI), data management and movement can be a challenge. The difficulties of sharing protected data with collaborators often leads researchers to limit their studies by using highly distilled, de-identified data rather than dealing with compliance and security mandates.
Globus was honored to be named with the organizations that contributed to the NSF IceCube Neutrino Observatory's project to find first evidence of high-energy cosmic neutrino source to pinpoint the origin of cosmic rays. This project won the HPCwire Editor’s Choice award for "Top HPC-Enabled Scientific Achievement" in 2018. Other organizations named in the award were PSC, SDSC, Stanford University, and XSEDE.
Smart home devices and popular web services such as If This Then That (IFTTT) have made it possible for people to automate many routine life tasks. Users can set their thermostat to kick up the heat if the temperature nears freezing, have their washing machine send them a text when a load is finished, or sync up calendars and to-do lists across home and work devices.
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.
