    Expanse Webinar: Running Jupyter Notebooks on Expanse

    In this webinar, we will present SDSC’s multitiered approach to running notebooks more securely: hosting Jupyter services on Expanse using SSH Tunneling or using the SDSC Jupyter Reverse Proxy Service (JRPS), which connects the user over an HTTPS connection. The JRPS will launch a batch script that creates a securely hosted HTTPS access point for the user, resulting in a safer, more secure notebook environment.

    This event will be held remotely.
