Population Data BCs Secure Research Environment (SRE) provides researchers with:

In order to access the SRE, Population Data BC needs to set up a research-project specific account and issue the necessary usernames, passphrases and SecurID token. Researchers can then log in using VPN software, and perform all analyses in the SRE.

Usernames for login and SecurID keyfobs are for the exclusive use of the individual to whom they are issued.

Note: While the SRE is accessible to both Windows and Mac users, once logged on, the working environment will be MSWindows.

The intention of these web pages is to guide course participants in setting up access to the SRE and working within it.
