Gateways help solve the mysteries of the universe. For example, Galaxy Zoo enlisted non-scientists to help categorize astronomical images, whereas LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory) captures signals from distant universes. (Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech)

Boost your cybersecurity with help from Trusted CI, the NSF Cybersecurity Center of Excellence

Trusted CI, the NSF Cybersecurity Center of Excellence, offers a variety of information and services that are relevant to science gateways.

  • Training materials easily accessible online:
    • For gateway development, materials associated with software assurance (writing secure code) and identity management
    • For gateway operation, materials associated with log analysis, incident response, and situational awareness 
  • One-on-one engagements with NSF-funded projects that vary in scope (see the application details, including important dates). Engagements may range from a very brief (couple of weeks) cybersecurity “checkup” to a more in-depth, six-month engagement.
  • Trusted CI also contributes to SGCI's biannual Science Gateways Bootcamp, run by the Incubator, that provides a week-long workshop for gateway PIs and developers.

Finally, we encourage those in the science gateways community to reach out to us and join our mailing lists. We are here to help!

Trusted CI Blog: Trusted CI begins Engagement with Galaxy

Read this blog post from Trusted CI to hear about the kick-off of the Galaxy cybersecurity engagement. Trusted CI and SGCI are providing this short-term engagement. Galaxy is an open-source, web-based application for performing data-intensive biomedical research. It combines common software tools and data workflows to provide researchers without an informatics platform in an accessible, easy to use interface, which abstracts the complexity of interacting with compute resources. Galaxy provides a free, public, internet accessible instance at https://usegalaxy.org, utilizing infrastructure provided by CyVerse at the Texas Advanced Computing Center, with support from the National Science Foundation
