The humlab file server is intended to provide research projects with disk storage and group-level access to datasets that are recorded in the lab. You will need your '''project id''' that was mailed to you when registering a project in the lab. Connect to the humlab server through the following steps:
 
* All '''wired internet connections within Lund University''' should work. If you use a wireless connection, you need to connect to the '''eduroam wireless network'''. Outside the university, you need to start a '''VPN client''' to connect.
 
* Connect with your <project id>. On Windows, you can click on the Start menu, and enter '''\\srv2.humlab.lu.se\<project id>$''' in the search bar. On Mac OS X, you can use the Finder menu called Go, and select Connect to server. A search bar will appear where you enter '''smb://srv2.humlab.lu.se/<project id>$'''. Dont forget to add the $-sign after your project id.
 
* When you connect to the file server, you will be prompted to enter your LUCAT credentials. On Windows, you need to prefix you username. Thus if your LUCAT username is <lucat id>, you would enter '''UW\<lucat id>''' as your username. If your computer has been added to the university domain, you might not need any authentication.

Data Lifecycle

Research begets data and where it resides depends on the nature of the data and timing of the project. You probably have one primary computer that you do your work on. On this computer you plan your lab activity and from this computer you will be handling the collected data afterwards. In the meantime you move data from the primary computer to the lab, conduct the experiments and move the data back. Depending on the nature of the data it will either end up on our network storage disk or the secure storage of TSD. How you move the data is also dependent on the requirements of security. If the data is unclassified, you can move it any way you like, but if the data is sensitive the transfer needs to be encrypted as well. You can borrow encrypted portable disks from the lab.

TSD

TSD is UiO's Storage solution for sensitive data. Any data that could be considered sensitive should end up here. Examples of this includes data containing information that can be linked to an individual or identifying an individual so that other data which is sensitive could be correlated to that individual. Most contact information to underaged persons is considered sensitive. Health and patient data is almost always sensitive.

For more about how to start using TSD, read the dedicated TSD entry.

File servers for non-sensitive data

The hf-depot file server is intended to provide research projects with disk storage and group-level access to datasets that are recorded in the lab.

Encrypted external hard drives

The lab has five encrypted 1 TB IronKey USB harddrives for data recorded on our eyetracker system.

The hard drives can be borrowed from the lab.
