An Infrastructure for Remote Applications for Macromolecular Crystallography at SSRL

Kenneth Sharp

The Macromolecular Crystallography software group at SSRL is engaged in an ongoing project to provide our users with a suite of remote-access applications to monitor and control their experiments from remote locations, process their data and solve structures using the computers at SSRL, and work effectively with geographically dispersed collaborators. These applications are based upon an Authentication Gateway and Impersonation Server, which together form a common infrastructure through which a user may be securely authenticated and through which applications may be run on SSRL computers on behalf of the user, all while protecting the privacy of the user's data. The effectiveness of this infrastructure has been demonstrated with the release of two remote applications, the Video System and Data Archiving System, both accessible through standard web browsers. A third application under development, Web-Ice, will enable a user to monitor and control the beamline during data collection and to process their data remotely via a web browser. A prototype of this system currently allows users to monitor data collection and run crystallographic software for autoindexing and calculating data collection strategies.
