SafeArchive is a solution for archival storage and replication management. Designed by the Data-PASS partners, it is a storage platform for policy-driven, distributed replication of digital holdings. The current version of SafeArchive is a self-contained system that can be installed, used and maintained by institutional staff without technical expertise. The set of open source tools can easily be used by libraries, museums and archives that wish to replicate their own content.

This project will help establish a formal linkage between scholarly publications and the underlying research data by integrating the OJS PKP and Harvard Dataverse Network systems.
This project defines and measures privacy in mathematical and legal terms, and explores alternate definitions of privacy that may be more general or more practical. The research aims to provide a better understanding of the practical performance and usability of a variety of algorithms for analyzing and sharing privacy-sensitive data. The project will develop secure implementations of these algorithms and legal instruments, which will be made publicly available.
