The Australian Access Federation (AAF) is a not-for-profit association initiated by CAUDIT in 2008 to provide an access Federation for Australian Higher Education and Research. The AAF has a subscriber base consisting of all Australian universities, CSIRO and a number of leading research support organisations (including many AeRO members). The AAF is recognised as a significant and sustainable part of the Australian eResearch infrastructure landscape.
The AAF provides the Australian solution for accessing online resources and services for education and research. This is achieved by delivering a secure framework which exchanges information between an individual and a provider of digital data resources. As a shared service it minimises the cost and effort for each individual subscriber of managing federated identity by enabling users to use their home institution login to access online resources and services with confidence.
