The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), along with the San Diego Supercomputing Center is pleased to present this webinar.

Jupyter Notebooks are interactive web tools known as a computational notebooks, in which researchers can combine software, text, multimedia resources, and computational output. Notebooks can be launched locally and access local file systems, or remotely to provide access to a user’s files on the remote system. In the latter case, the notebooks are launched via a process that creates a unique URL that is composed of the hostname plus an available port (chosen by the jupyter application) plus a one-time token. By default, these notebooks are not secure, and potentially expose a user’s local files to unwanted access. In this webinar, we will present SDSC’s multitiered approach to running notebooks more securely: running notebooks in the usual way using the insecure HTTP connections; hosting a JupyterHub server using HTTPS and Jupyter Lab; and the new Reverse Proxy Service (RPS). When used, the RPS will launch a batch script that creates a securely hosted HTTPS access point for the user, resulting in a safer, more secure notebook environment.

XSEDE, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment, is the most advanced, powerful, and robust collection of integrated digital resources and services in the world. It is a single virtual system that scientists and researchers can use to interactively share computing resources, data, and expertise. XSEDE integrates the resources and services, makes them easier to use, and helps more people use them.

Several projects and systems at Indiana University are XSEDE service providers, including Jetstream, National Center for Genome Analysis Support, and the Science Gateways Community Institute.
