Hi, Our team at the University of Oslo is building a Life Science Portal based on Galaxy. We operate several standalone instances and we have the necessary sysadmin experience, but we really need to implement a more secure file upload mechanism than FTP (we do not like to send cleartext password credentials in the open ), and we understand that Galaxy does not integrate an upload method other than FTP with reference to this screencast: One possible solution for this is to setup an SFTP upload server with a huge scratch space, that runs the SFTP upload gateway on one end and an IP restricted FTP server on the other, so that users can then upload/index the SFTP uploaded data into their Galaxy session via the URL upload field. This two step process might be a bit cumbersome for some of our users and we are looking for ways to simplify it. Do you have best recipes for SFTP/Aspera upload gateway integration to Galaxy? We would welcome advise on that matter.

Galaxy's FTP support uses ProFTPD, which has modules for both TLS (FTPS) and SFTP. -- James Taylor, Associate Professor, Biology/CS, Emory University On Tue, Sep 24, 2013 at 7:58 AM, Georgios Magklaras

On Tue, Sep 24, 2013 at 7:58 AM, Georgios Magklaras Hi, I haven't implemented yet, but I'm planning on using plain scp(windows user can use WinSCP). I shouldn't have problems doing so by using this option in universe_wsgi.ini: # Add an option to the library upload form which allows authorized # non-administrators to upload a directory of files. The configured directory # must contain sub-directories named the same as the non-admin user's Galaxy # login ( email ). The non-admin user is restricted to uploading files or # sub-directories of files contained in their directory. user_library_import_dir = /local/opt/galaxy/import_dir Hope it helps, Carlos
