The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI, https://oceanobservatories.org/), funded by the NSF OCE Division of Ocean Sciences #1743430 , is a science-driven ocean observing network that 2 delivers real-time data from more than 800 instruments to address critical science questions regarding the world’s oceans. OOI data are freely available online to anyone with an Internet connection. The OOI provides an exponential increase in the scope and timescale of observations of the world’s oceans. Present and future educators, scientists, and researchers will draw conclusions about climatological and environmental processes based on these measurements, which sets a requirement for the data to be accurate, with a flawless pedigree. As a result, the OOI has a requirement to protect its data from being altered by any external agent. To this end, OOI-CI (OOI Cyberinfrastructure) is seeking consultation from Trusted CI on evaluation of their current security program, along with guidance on reviewing and evaluating potential alternatives for an enhanced security posture. 2 https://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward?AWD_ID=1743430 OOI Engagement Final Report | Trusted CI Distribution: Public 2 Due to leadership changes, obligations and activities involved in transitioning to a new data center, and schedules during the holiday season, this engagement was conducted on a shorter timeline than typically allocated. We were mindful of this when defining goals and milestones and ensured not to overcommit or overpromise the final engagement deliverables. The OOI team consisted of Craig Risien (lead), Jeffrey Glatstein, Jim Housell, and Casey Dinsmore, while the Trusted CI personnel were Shane Filus (lead), and Andrew Adams. The engagement ran from August 16, 2021 to December 31, 2021.
