Access the SDA at IU

The SDA web interface was retired on October 21, 2018. For web-based access to your SDA data, UITS recommends using the IU - Scholarly Data Archive endpoint in the IU Globus Web App. If you have questions or concerns, contact the UITS Research Storage team.

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 (at rest) and when they are transferred between networked systems (in transit). To ensure that files containing PHI are encrypted when they are stored, encrypt them before transferring them to storage. To ensure that files containing PHI remain encrypted during transit, use SFTP/SCP or the IU Globus Web App. For more, see Recommended tools for encrypting data containing HIPAA-regulated PHI.
