Essentially, the AAF provides a central point for user authentication into a number of different eResearchServices, using existing Institution credentials (no need to manage multiple user accounts)
This means that your Institution’s username and password (the one you use to log into the computer) can be entered to authenticate with a Service after it has connected to the AAF
A Service Catalogue outlining the connected eResearch Services is available here: http://www.aaf.edu.au/servicecatalogue/ (NB. not all Services are shown due to privacy reasons)
The 3 minute AAF information video is a very useful demonstration of how the AAF works. To view it, click here or on the video player here
