This page is about how to apply for access to Mosler, if you want to know how to use the system please see Mosler User Guide.
For more detailed instructions, see the Accounts section below.
Project applications are handled in the SNIC project repository at https://supr.snic.se/. Project resources are granted for 12 months. Project owners will be notified before the project time runs out, and can request prolongation of the project. Project prolongation will be subject to evaluation if resources are limited.
By sending in a project application you agree to the following:
You confirm that you are aware of and accept the listed risks.
To be able to access MOSLER, you must first have a user created at one of the systems at UPPMAX (milou or rackham) with a password you know.
If you do not previously have a user account there, an application will be made when you’re added to a project on MOSLER. You will also need to accept the SNIC common user agreement within SUPR (you will get an e-mail reminder about this). When you’ve done this, an account should be created for you.
After you’ve received an account, you should log in and change your password.
When you have an account (new or old), you’ll need to confirm that you can log
in using your password to UPPMAX (not using ssh keys or other authentication
Once this is done, send an e-mail to email@example.com to let us
know your account is ready for importing into Mosler.
Once that is done, your user can be imported into MOSLER and two-factor authentication can be setup for you.
Before you can access the MOSLER service, firewall rules must be updated to let
you connect. The firewall rules should allow access from all major Swedish universities. Should you have problems accessing https://mosler.nbis.se,
report your IP address (see
https://whatismyipaddress.com/ if you don’t know this) to
firstname.lastname@example.org along with the information that you need to be able to
access the MOSLER service and what project you’re a member of.
For use of Mosler, a requirement is that that the identity of all users are verified. To mitigate the risks of password guessing theft, the use of a second factor is also required for login.
To get this second factor you need to visit one of the Mosler appointed token administrators, and you will need to identify yourself with a valid ID.
You will also need to fill in and sign a user agreement. This should also be signed by the owner of the project on Mosler, or by your boss.
We are using a standards-based one time password algorithm that can be used with different providers. One is by using a smart phone and a key generator such as Authy, which is available for iPhone and Android.
Please install the app on your phone before you visit the support staff.
We strongly recommend that you use a phone as a generator and that you lock your phone screen with a good password or key.
