Application needs to be made through BNL ITD. Applicant needs to have a current BNL appointment and life/guest number and have completed BNL training.
ATF users can connect to the visitor wireless network ("Corus") which provides access to the Internet and select internal BNL hosts. (Note: Wireless access is *not* provided to the ATF internal networks.)
Users who are members of a fully approved experiment and who have completed the requisite BNL and ATF-specific training requirements are permitted access to the ATF internal control system network. This includes:
Devices to be connected to the ATF network must comply with DOE, BNL and ATF requirements as detailed in the user's training, including (but not limited to) ATF-specific training, cybersecurity, information security awareness and up-to-date virus scanning tools.
Users should detail all needs for ATF control system access as part of their proposal and obtain concurrence from the ATF operations coordinator prior to arrival.
ATF staff will assist users with special requirements which require specific approvals from BNL's Information Technology Division (e.g., requests to temporarily open BNL external network firewall ports for data linkage back to home institute.)
ATF staff will assist users in implementing computing/data acquisition. Users are encouraged to contact the ATF operations coordinator as early as possible to be certain their needs can be met and what users can/can not expect from ATF.
The primary point of contact for ATF computing is the ATF operations coordinator who will review all requests and then advise the relevant ATF staff.
The information provided above is subject to change in response to requirements of the US DOE, BNL, C-AD department and/or ATF.
