Declaring the machines from which a user connects to IDRIS

Each machine from which a user wishes to access an IDRIS computer must be registered at IDRIS.

The user must provide, for each of his/her accounts, a list of machines which will be used to connect to the IDRIS computers (the machine's name and IP address). This is done at the creation of each account via the GENCI account creation request form available at this portal.

The user must update the list of machines associated with a login account (adding/deleting) by using the FGC form (account administration form). After completing this form, it must be signed by both the user and the security manager of the laboratory.

Important note: Personal IP addresses are not authorised for connection to IDRIS machines.

Security manager of the laboratory

The laboratory security manager is the network/security intermediary for IDRIS. This person must guarantee that the machine from which the user connects to IDRIS conforms to the most recent rules and practices concerning information security and must be able to immediately close the user access to IDRIS in case of a security alert.

The security manager's name and contact information are transmitted to IDRIS by the laboratory director on the FGC (account administration) form. This form is also used for informing IDRIS of any change in the security manager.

Obtaining temporary access to IDRIS machines from a foreign country

The user on mission must request machine authorisation by completing the corresponding box on page 3 of the FGC form. A temporary ssh access to all the IDRIS machines is then accorded.
