  • No personal data should be stored on COSMA without discussion and agreement with cosma-support
    • This includes anonymised patient survey data
  • Your private SSH key used to access COSMA must be kept secure and must not be disclosed to anyone (including cosma-support). It should be protected by a passphrase.
  • You should not try to bypass COSMA security.
  • You should not run jobs on the login nodes
    • These are for use by all users, therefore do not use more than 1 or 2 CPU cores
    • If you require more CPU cores, please discuss with cosma-support
