A data management software program provides security and only grants access to authorised biomedical material. CSC, the Finnish ELIXIR node, develops and maintains the open source REMS tool that can be used to manage access to datasets containing confidential material. REMS (Resource Entitlement Management System) is an access management tool that, where necessary, prevents the illegal use of data. With the REMS tool, it is possible to order a specific file from a large amount of data and have it delivered to the ordering party locked in a secure manner. The researcher creates a secure analysis environment for the data to be analysed. This is made possible by the REMS tool.
