Using HSI, why am I unable to move a file to the SDA, even though the file appears in a directory listing?

Files containing PHI must be encrypted when they are stored (at rest) and when they are transferred between networked systems (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.

In HSI, if you are unable to move a file to Indiana University's Scholarly Data Archive (SDA), even though you see it listed in your directory (when you run the ls command), make sure what you are seeing is not actually a symbolic link; if it is a symbolic link, make sure the file to which it points exists.

If the problem persists, try using SFTP to move the file to the SDA. If SFTP is successful, the problem is likely due to an issue with the HSI application. In such cases, email the UITS Research Storage group for help.
