What is Secure Enclave, and What Can Researchers Do with It? 

Secure Enclave

Secure Enclave supports research with Protected Health Information and Controlled Unclassified Information which have specific security requirements specified by federal regulations. Support for use of these resources includes system administration support, scientific computing support, documentation, training, software installation and maintenance, and other support services. 

What Secure Enclave Provides:

  • Offers services for three types of systems to support sensitive research and data: Windows Virtual machines (VMs), HPSC cluster, and Virtual Datacenter Work Stations (vDWS). 
  • Provides access to an extensive library of software available for use including: Abaqus, Git and GitHub, R and Python, SAS and SAS Connect, MATLAB, and more
  • Has C/C++ and Fortran compilers from GNU and Intel 
  • Runs three file systems: NFS (Network File System), EncFS, and Lustre SIP. Home directories are stored on NFS. EncFS holds encrypted project directories. Lustre SIP provides high-performance storage for job-related data, data transfers, and project directories. 
  • Allows you to dynamically load, unload, or swap modules to tune your environment as you require. 

Secure Enclave provides researchers with a variety of helpful services and resources. To learn more visit the HPSC Secure Enclave service webpage.
