SAFE, which was developed at EPCC, is the admin software used by HECToR, as well as by HPCx. Every user of HECToR has an account on SAFE, as well as their accounts on the HECToR service machine itself. Its functions include:
- Registering users;
- Adminstration of projects and resources, by PIs and project managers;
- Generating reports;
- The HECToR helpdesk.
The SAFE website uses a certificate issued by the UK e-Science Certificate Authority. If you see certificate errors when trying to access this web-site you may need to load the CA certificates into your browser. These are available from the NGS website.
In order to register as a user of HECToR, you must be a member of an approved HECToR project. Contact your PI, and ask them to give you the project code and project password.
