This is a U. S. Department of Energy computer system. Access to E-Link is provided only for authorized U.S. Government use for the purpose of announcing, reviewing, releasing, or submitting scientific and technical information (STI). The system restricts access based on the type and identity of the user, with the minimum level of access provided that is necessary to perform the job.

It is the responsibility of DOE and DOE contractor organizations and their respective STI releasing officials to comply with password protection guidelines and to ensure that no Protected Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is contained in STI submitted to OSTI. Refer to Energy Link FAQs for a full definition of PII.

To protect the system from unauthorized use and to ensure that it is functioning properly, activities on this system may be monitored, recorded, and subject to audit. Use of this system constitutes expressed consent to such monitoring and recording. Any unauthorized access to or use of this information system is prohibited and could make you subject to criminal and civil penalties.

This system may contain information protected under the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, 5 U.S.C. Section 552a, and it must be protected from unauthorized access or use. For Official Use Only (FOUO).

The Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Link system (E-Link), developed and maintained by the DOE Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI), is to be used solely for submitting scientific and technical information (STI) products, and should be used only for official DOE business. 

OSTI ensures that STI is identified, processed, disseminated and preserved as part the DOE mission.  The information provided is handled in accordance with access/distribution limitations provided in the 241 Announcement Notices. Unclassified, unlimited STI is announced to the public via various web products maintained by OSTI.

It is the responsibility of submitting organizations and their respective releasing officials to ensure that no Protected Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is contained in STI reports and products submitted to OSTI.  Refer to E-Link FAQ for a full definition of PII.

E-Link uses Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS), a combination of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol with the SSL/TLS protocol, to provide encrypted communication and secure identification for E-Link data transmissions.  OSTI utilizes OpenSSL, which is FIPS 140-2 compliant, to implement HTTPS.
