DC Support for Secure-to-Open Transfers


Review by a DC is part of every secure-to-open—i.e., SCF to OCF—TapeFIS file transfer. (Note: A special visualization FIS-DC is needed for secure-to-open image and movie file transfers.) To help DCs carry out this review role, TapeFIS provides a special set of directories dedicated to managing files undergoing review and a special software tool (ADCTOOL) for conducting the review online.

DC Review Area

In addition to the TO and FROM directories seen by each regular user of the secure FIS server, DCs have access to a separate review area (where files wait, hidden from users and protected from outside changes). This review area is organized by DC pool and user and managed when DCs run the ADCTOOL utility.
