  • Ivy Secure Environment

    Ivy is a secure computing environment for researchers consisting of virtual machines (Linux and Windows). Researchers can use Ivy to process and store sensitive data with the confidence that the environment is secure and meets HIPAA, FERPA, CUI or ITAR requirements.
    Facilities Statement - Are you submitting a grant proposal and need standard information about UVA research computing environments? Get it here. Overview Ivy consists of both virtual computing environments and secure storage. In order to obtain access to either system, users must
    Submit an account request, Complete the Information Security Awareness Training, and Ensure their personal computer meets all High Security VPN requirements.

  • ACCORD

    Welcome to ACCORD (Assuring Controls Compliance of Research Data), a web-based platform which allows researchers from public universities across the state of Virginia to analyze and store their sensitive data in a central location.
    ACCORD is appropriate for de-identified PII, FERPA, de-identified HIPAA, business confidential, and other types of de-identified sensitive data
    Thanks to funding provided by the National Science Foundation (Award #: 1919667), ACCORD is available at no cost to researchers in the state of Virginia.
    Partners Listed below are our partner universities for ACCORD:

  • ACCORD Security

    Back to Overview
    ACCORD is appropriate for de-identified PII, FERPA, de-identified HIPAA, business confidential, and other types of de-identified sensitive data. ACCORD cannot be used to process highly-restricted data such as CUI, FISMA, iTAR, and PCI data.
    Authentication ACCORD does not have its own user identity store but instead relies upon authentication via your home institution’s single sign-on tool.
    Authorization All members of a project have equal access to the data storage for that project, without sudo or root privileges.
    Closed Environments ACCORD environments have no outbound connectivity to the Internet other than approved library and tool
    repositories (PyPi, CPAN, CRAN, etc.

  • Secure Computing for Surgical Research

    RC is working with Dr. Eric Schneider to create a secure computing environment for the research of the Healthcare Surgical Outcome team. Data from this project will contain HIPAA identifiers, as well as Medicare information, and requires more security and control of data ingress/egress than projects previously hosted on the Ivy platform. After successful implementation of this project, RC will create a similar computing environment for DoD blast and traumatic brain injury data collected by Dr. Schneider before he joined UVA.
    PI: Eric Schneider (Department of Surgery)
