Data Enclave

A data enclave is a secure network through which confidential data, such as identifiable information from census data, can be stored and disseminated. In a virtual data enclave a researcher can access the data from their own computer but cannot download or remove it from the remote server. Higher security data can be accessed through a physical data enclave where a researcher is required to access the data from a monitored room where the data is stored on non-network computers.
