Using Julia in Secure Environments
2019-07-24, 09:50–10:00, NS Room 130

As a product of the academic community, Julia has been developed with certain assumptions relating to source code availability and access. In secure environments, however, access to public (and even private) package repositories can be deliberately limited. It is still possible to use Julia in these environments: this talk will provide an overview of the challenges in deploying Julia in secure/controlled environments and discuss lessons learned from a real-world deployment on a secure system.


This talk stems from the author's (eventually successful) attempt to deploy Julia along with associated packages on a secure network. Last year there was a fairly long discourse thread on this subject; this talk will serve as a followup to the initial attempts and will discuss lessons learned and advice for those seeking to use Julia in restricted environments.
