IT Services for Sensitive Research Data -

  1. 1. IT Services for
 Sensitive Research Data The Nordic Tryggve project wiki.neic.no/Tryggve !
  2. 2. Tryggve – collaboration for sensitive biomedical data 2 • Project aims to strengthen Nordic biomedical research by facilitating use of sensitive data in cross-border projects • Collaborators and funders are NeIC and ELIXIR Nodes in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden • Project will build on strong existing capacities and resources in Nordic countries
  3. 3. Motivation and Goals • Motivation: Enable and strengthen research that utilizes sensitive data ! • Main goals: • Provide secure and efficient analysis environment for sensitive research data • Enable cross-border sharing of sensitive data among collaborators • Empower Nordic research projects • Transfer knowledge between developers and service providers 3
  4. 4. Nordic perspective • Tryggve is a project in NeIC project portfolio – NeIC = Nordic e-Infrastructure Collaboration – Organization that facilitates the development and operation of high- quality e-infrastructure solutions in areas of joint Nordic interest – Organizational unit under NordForsk ! • Collaboration between NeIC Tryggve and NordForsk funded projects is a natural match to support joint Nordic interests. – In practice, Tryggve can support research projects through Use cases. 4
  5. 5. Tryggve works on 6 themes 1. Technical development 2. Interoperability of systems 3. Process development 4. Legal framework 5. Use cases 6. Communication and outreach 5
  6. 6. 1. Technical development 6
  7. 7. 1. Technical development • Purpose: Provide secure computing environment for analysis of sensitive data. ! • “Building blocks” – TSD 2.0 service at USIT, Norway – Mosler service at BILS, Sweden – ePouta IaaS at CSC, Finland – Computerome at DTU, Denmark ! • All of the above have been launched for users • Variety in the systems involved offers flexibility to handle different user demands 7
  8. 8. 2. Interoperability of systems 8
  9. 9. 2. Interoperability of systems • Purpose: Improve joint use of Nordic secure systems. ! • Development supporting interoperability: – Data transfer service – Portable software installations – Shared computing resources – Investigate common authentication and authorization mechanisms ! • Existing tools will be utilized to support interoperability, including: – Tool and Resource Registry at ELIXIR Denmark – REMS authorization management system at ELIXIR Finland 9
  10. 10. 3. Process development 10
  11. 11. 3. Process development • Purpose: Improve accessibility of services and share best-practices in service operations ! • Tasks supporting development of processes: – sharing knowledge on technologies and software components – optimizing account delivery process (2-factor authentication) – sharing experiences in IT security and security reviews – improving (or harmonizing) customer contract processes – possibilities for resource sharing (funding) across countries 11
  12. 12. 4. Legal environment 12
  13. 13. 4. Legal environment • Purpose: Assess legal framework relevant for use of sensitive data in research, and provide guidelines to fulfill legal requirements for trans-Nordic studies. ! • Activities include: – assessing relevant legislation in Nordic and EU level – analysing legal requirements and conditions in some of the use cases – preparing guidelines for researchers on the regulations 13
  14. 14. 14 5. Use cases
  15. 15. 5. Use cases • Purpose: Implement and support concrete use cases to facilitate great research and to connect project to actual user demands. ! • Tryggve use case is part of a real research project aimed to support the researchers in handling and analysis of sensitive data. – at the same time, development of services in Tryggve is influenced by the experiences gained from the pilot users / use cases. ! • Use cases can be proposed at any time. ! • (simple) process for proposing use cases documented at wiki.neic.no/Tryggve#Use_cases 15
  16. 16. What does Tryggve offer for pilot users? • The proposers of accepted use cases will receive: – Access to secure data processing systems (for a limited time, and up to a reasonable amount of disk space and computing resources) – Expert assistance from Tryggve – Possibility for targeted service development to enable the use case ! • All this will be provided free of charge for the use cases – No funding for proposers of accepted use cases is included ! • What we expect from researchers involved in a use case – Participation in discussions to specify the users’ needs – Feedback for services 16
  17. 17. 5. Use Case proposal form available on web site 17 ! More information at https://wiki.neic.no/Tryggve#Use_cases
  18. 18. TSD: a Secure System • Security, isolation and access control as given by law • Large storage capacity • Multi tenant (multiple users) • High performance computing (HPC) resource • High bandwidth • Easy to maintain and operate • Easy to use and “practical” (also for audio and video) • Some freedom within confined user space • Accessible from anywhere through proper mechanisms • A variety of software and public data-sources • Windows and Linux support • Data collection services • Data sharing services ! !
