Is it safe to run T.Brada Experimental Grid?

Any time you download a program through the Internet you are taking a chance: the program might have dangerous errors, or the download server might have been hacked. T.Brada Experimental Grid has made efforts to minimize these risks. We have tested our applications carefully. Our servers are behind a firewall and are configured for high security. To ensure the integrity of program downloads, all executable files are digitally signed on a secure computer not connected to the Internet.

The applications run by T.Brada Experimental Grid may cause some computers to overheat. If this happens, stop running T.Brada Experimental Grid or use a utility program that limits CPU usage.

T.Brada Experimental Grid was developed by Tomáš Brada. BOINC was developed at the University of California.


T.Brada Experimental Grid and Tomáš Brada assume no liability for damage to your computer, loss of data, or any other event or condition that may occur as a result of participating in T.Brada Experimental Grid.

Other BOINC projects

Other projects use the same platform, BOINC, as T.Brada Experimental Grid. You may want to consider participating in one or more of these projects. By doing so, your computer will do useful work even when T.Brada Experimental Grid has no work available for it.

These other projects are not associated with T.Brada Experimental Grid, and we cannot vouch for their security practices or the nature of their research. Join them at your own risk.
