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!

Applications are now open for the 3rd round of Trusted CI Fellows!

We are now pleased to announce the call for applications for our 2021 Trusted CI Fellows. Another cohort of six fellows will receive training from and work closely with Trusted CI to expand their own understanding of trustworthy science and further empower the NSF community to secure its own research. You can learn more about our Fellows program by visiting the Trusted CI website.

The deadline for applications is Nov 6th, 2020. Click here to apply for the program.

Trusted CI’s first two cohorts of Fellows have been an amazing success with twelve Fellows from various fields, including:

  • Research technologies;
  • Astrophysics;
  • Criminal justice;
  • Network and combinatorial optimization 
  • and computer engineering.
