At IU, how do I access the SDA?

Methods available for transferring data to and from the Indiana University Scholarly Data Archive (SDA) include Hierarchical Storage Interface (HSI), secure FTP (SFTP), secure copy (SCP), and GridFTP. For instructions, see:

Read-only access is available via CIFS/Samba; see Use Samba or CIFS to access your SDA account from your personal workstation.

Files containing PHI must be encrypted when they are stored (i.e., at rest) and when they are transferred between networked systems (i.e., in transit). Do not use HSI, HTAR, or Samba to transfer data containing PHI unless those data are encrypted already; HSI, HTAR, and Samba do not encrypt data during transit. To ensure that files containing PHI remain encrypted during transit, use SFTP/SCP or the IU Globus Web App. To ensure that files containing PHI are encrypted when they are stored on the SDA, encrypt them before transferring them. For more, see Recommended tools for encrypting data containing HIPAA-regulated PHI.
