Learn about the Trust and Identity Pathfinder Project and how we are co-designing a connected and secure digital research ecosystem.

About the event

The Australian Access Federation’s (AAF’s) Trust and Identity Information Session will outline our Pathfinder Project and how we are co-designing a connected and secure digital research ecosystem with national research infrastructures (NRIs).

The Australian Government’s 2021 National Research Infrastructure Roadmap identified trust and identity as fundamental research infrastructure, that underpins every aspect of modern research and will create significant advances in outcomes for Australian researchers.

AAF is building a Trust and Identity Framework that includes common policies, standards and technologies so researchers will enjoy a more cohesive network of services. Through one username and password researchers, industry, higher education and government will be able to seamlessly access multiple national research capabilities.
