  • Ivy Secure Environment

    Ivy Ivy is a secure computing environment for researchers consisting of virtual machines (Linux and Windows). Researchers can use Ivy to process and store sensitive data with the confidence that the environment is secure and meets HIPAA or CUI requirements. Overview Ivy consists of both virtual computing environments and secure storage. In order to obtain access to either system, users must 1. Submit an account request, 2. Complete the Information Security Awareness Training, and 3. Ensure their personal computer meets all High Security VPN requirements. Requesting Access Training High Security VPN Virtual Machines JupyterLab Notebooks Data Transfer In/Out of Ivy HIPAA Compliance Requesting Access University of Virginia tenure stream and academic general faculty, research faculty, research scientists, and postdoctoral associates may request an account on Ivy.
  • Research Data Storage

    There are a variety of options for storing large-scale research data at UVA. Public and moderately sensitive data storage systems can be accessed from the Rivanna high performance computing system. Highly sensitive data can be stored and accessed within the Ivy secure computing environment. Information Security at UVA provides an overview of the data sensitivity classifications. UVA graduate and undergraduate students are not permitted to request storage accounts. This must be done by their faculty advisor[s]. Information Technology Services (ITS) also provides multiple tiers of data storage for personal and non-research storage needs. .tg {border-collapse:collapse;border-spacing:0;border-color:#ccc;} .tg td{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;border-color:#ccc;color:#333;background-color:#fff;} .
  • UVA Anywhere VPN on Linux

    ITS does not support the UVA Anywhere VPN client on Linux. These instructions may work but they are provided for user information only. UVA RC does not support usage of the VPN on any platform. Setting up the VPN Install Software Prerequisites You must install some software using yum,dnf, or apt-get. Note the slight difference in naming convention between distributions. Centos/RedHat/Fedora These distributions need the following packages: openssl openconnect NetworkManager-openconnect NetworkManager-openconnect-gnome Ubuntu The packages are the same but the names are different. Ubuntu 18.04 and up requires an additional package. openssl openconnect network-manager-openconnect network-manager-gnome network-manager-openconnect-gnome It will be necessary for Network Manager to be able to manage the connection.
  • Secure Computing

    UVA School of Medicine Research Computing can assist medical researchers in both understanding what HIPAA compliance requires of their work, and how to implement technical solutions to achieve and verify such compliance. Review & Assessment From a compliance perspective, RC offers three levels of review/assessment: Security Plan - Having a security plan in place is important to your success at UVA School of Medicine. If your lab or department doesn’t have a plan in place Research Computing Information Security will be happy to help you develop such a plan. Security Review - If you have a security plan in place already we can help you verify that your computing resources are functioning as documented in your security plan.
