Abstract

ECaccess provides a portal for registered users to access the ECMWF computing and archiving facilities with single step authentication from anywhere on the Internet. ECaccess provides a portal for registered users to access the Centre's computing and archiving facilities with single step authentication from anywhere on the Internet. Strict authentication is performed in a uniform way using SecurID cards and standard (X509) certificates. SSL is used to guarantee the integrity of the application data, the transferred jobs and the monitoring information. Registered users access ECaccess via standard SSH or FTP/SFTP clients or via the ECaccess client. Clients connect to an ECaccess gateway, which authenticates users before contacting the ECaccess server, which in turn manages the connection to Ecgate, HPCF and ECFS, manages the submitted jobs and performs data transfers
