4.6.1 Comply with Access Policies
4.6.1 - The repository shall comply with Access Policies.
The CLOCKSS archive is a dark archive. As described in CLOCKSS: Access Policy, access to the content on the CLOCKSS boxes is not permitted. As described in CLOCKSS: Box Operations, CLOCKSS boxes are configured to prevent access to their content in three ways:
- By firewall rules on the host institution's network.
- By firewall rules on the CLOCKSS box itself.
- By disabling the content access mechanisms in the LOCKSS daemon.
Content triggered from the CLOCKSS archive by the process described in CLOCKSS: Extracting Triggered Content is re-published under Creative Commons Licenses and is freely available to all, wherever they may access it from.
