© S.J. Coles 2006 Usability WS, NeSC Jan 06 Lessons from ECSES User authentication and security; single sign-on using Globus Security Infrastructure Use of Grid, as opposed to Web, Services; GS not flexible enough to interface to instrument Scheduling an experiment; timing between both parties Remote instrument control; degree of user control and interaction Communication between parties; video conferencing, audio multicasting & instant messaging Third party software; licensing and provision
© S.J. Coles 2006 Usability WS, NeSC Jan 06 Principal Components 1)Application for an allocation 2)Secure access to NCS Grid resources 3)Sample submission 4)Monitoring sample and queue status 5)Data collection 6)Raw data download

© S.J. Coles 2006 Usability WS, NeSC Jan 06 Usability: Security WS approach and complexity of NCS operations necessitates design of a security infrastructure Risk assessment; Campus network, NCS computing, scientific instrument, data Level of access; User data, experiment control, management, administration Public Key Infrastructure; NCS certification practice, X.509 certificate issued by CA & RA Process-Based Access Security; Each NCS process validates user access according to defined requirements Sign-up process too complex for most NCS clients

© S.J. Coles 2006 Usability WS, NeSC Jan 06 Usability: Scheduling Timing sessions; instrument, video & audio Sample scheduling embedded into Status Service Timing still difficult due to variable length of experiments Video & audio problems; Session management (both client and provider), client software necessary, insufficient or irregular bandwidth
© S.J. Coles 2006 Usability WS, NeSC Jan 06 Usability: Experiment Steering Provider aspect –Complete access to NCS systems and experiments undesirable –Loose coupling of system to physical instrument necessitates both software and hardware systems to protect instrument Client aspect –Many NCS users are chemists using a service with no knowledge or interest in the technique –Allocation on NCS relatively easy to acquire (relative to other central facilities) –NCS is a data provision service, rather than the client performing the experiment. Users prefer to delegate responsibility to expert staff at NCS
© S.J. Coles 2006 Usability WS, NeSC Jan 06 Client Usability Lightweight interface; access through standard web browser Simple electronic application and submission Simple installation of certificate to meet security requirements Ability to easily view sample states Immediate availability of data on completion of experiment Difficulty in coinciding timing between provider and client Preference to delegate experiment work to service
© S.J. Coles 2006 Usability WS, NeSC Jan 06 Service Provider Usability Significant move towards paperless administration Efficient (often automatic) management of user, sample and experiment metadata/data Less client queries Simple reporting back to users through automated User may access data themselves Rapid reporting of usage statistics Issuing certificates Install instrument safety hardware (and upgrade software safety) before full faith in remote control
© S.J. Coles 2006 Usability WS, NeSC Jan 06 Current Situation Selected users at beta testing stage provided feedback which was included into release software System been in use at NCS for 6 months (without full client access) Certificates to be issued to all clients March 2006 Electronic application and submission to be fully phased in (mandatory?) during 2006 Minor developments continually in progress Feasibility study into transferability of software to other chemistry services Collaboration with larger central facilities on remote instrument control / steering
