Container computing is gradually changing the way researchers are developing, sharing, and running software applications. Apptainer (formerly called Singularity) is gaining popularity in HPC for its performance, ease of use, portability,  and security. In this course, we will explore: what is a container, why use a container, and how to use and create one.

In three sessions over the course of one week, we will cover different aspects of cybersecurity to help you enable your research! We will explore cybersecurity concepts, cyberattack models, as well as best practices to protect your research. We will talk about cryptography and apply the concept to a real life scenario via SSH keys. Finally, we will approach cybersecurity in the context of the Research Ethics Board.     This session will be a mix of theory and practical exercises.  We hope you will learn something new and, most importantly, enjoy the sessions! 
The format is virtual, but for the second session there is the option to attend in person in the SciNet Boardroom to get in-person help with setting up ssh key authentication.

Learn how to protect your research using cybersecurity techniques. During the three days of this workshop, we will cover various aspects of cybersecurity to help you protect your research! Cybersecurity concepts, cyberattack models, as well as best practices to protect your research will be reviewed. We will talk about cryptography and you will get to apply the concepts to a real life scenario using SSH keys. Finally, we will discuss cybersecurity in the context of human research data and the Research Ethics Board.  The workshop will be a mix of theory and practical exercises. We hope you will learn something new and, more importantly, enjoy the sessions!

Sessions will be delivered in English, but we will have the ability to respond to questions in French. The lesson material will be available in English. A French version of this workshop will take place at a later date.

This workshop is part of the National Training series of the Compute Canada Federation.  Registration is handled at
