Daily Lab / POC Activities


Assisted Albert at Columbia University with a VDT grid node installation. He is currently awaiting host and user certificates.

Albert's Questions:
How will the grid be used to transmit Natural Language Processor requests? These requests can be initiated using a job that transfers the language processor data to the correct grid node via GridFTP or RFT.

How will the data be secured? A combination of x509 certificates and native user account credentials. Each certificate will be mapped to a valid user account on the grid node. Access rights can be restricted based on the native operating system's security settings.
