GDO Data Custodian
GDO data custodians take responsibility for data that
are made available to others via the GDO. Each project
shall have one or more data custodians; each must be
an LLNL employee and a U.S. citizen. The data custodian
has a login account and special privileges that enable
him or her to manage the project's datasets.
The following are things the data custodian may need
- Move project data onto the GDO from other LLNL
hosts, using FTP or any other approved protocol.
- Understand and use the available access control
mechanisms if the project wishes to restrict access
to its data.
- Understand and follow the process whereby external
collaborators can upload data to the GDO. In short,
the data custodian must review and approve data from
external sources before making it available to others.
