Get a computing account at Fermilab

Remote Users

A user not physically present at Fermilab is considered a remote user and can request and obtain USCMS computing accounts.

Remote users typically fall into one of the following categories:

  • Never had Fermilab nor LPC computing accounts: usually first time users.
  • Had Fermilab computing account but not LPC computing account: users joining CMS from other Fermilab experiments, for example.
  • Need to renew your Fermilab Kerberos credentials: users who have not used their Fermilab computing account for a long time or who do not remember their Kerberos password.

The following sections contain the procedure corresponding to each of those cases.

I have neither Fermilab nor LPC computing accounts

Complete and submit the form. You will receive e-mail notifications about the status of your request.

I have a Fermilab computing account, I just need a LPC computing account

  • Log into the Fermilab Service Desk (Your Services account password is required)
