Security basics for scientists and anyone who uses the scientific tools


On Dec. 7, during Computer Security Awareness Day 2016,  Jeny Teheran presented the talk titled “Security Basics for scientists and anyone who uses the scientific tools”. The focus of this presentation was to explain basic security concepts that scientists encounter every day while working at Fermilab, such as Kerberos tickets, certificates and proxies.

Along with other specialized presentations about security topics of current interest, Fermilab users learned about authentication, authorization and what happens behind the scenes when they request certificates and how the proxies are useful for job submission and data movement. A webinar and the slides are available at http://cd-docdb.fnal.gov/cgi-bin/ShowDocument?docid=5884
