  • The Secure Data Enclave (SDE) pilot system is a secure computing environment for a limited number of Columbia Social Science Computing Committee (SSCC) users for a period of one year using CUIT’s infrastructure. This environment will provide secure remote access to restricted data and applications used for analysis. The restricted data is either created by researchers themselves, or granted to successful applicants for temporary use by various agencies.
