AARC’s policy work focuses on ways of making Authentication and Authorisation policies work for research collaborations. We are interested in exploring:

  • how can generic e-infrastructures and research infrastructures benefit from coherency in policy and sharing common security practices
  • how policies can complement AARC’s technical work

The goal is to maintain a set of recommendations and best practices for all interested in implementing scalable and cost-effective policy and operational framework for integrated AAI.
