This is the HDF AAI Webpage, describing all you need to know about joining as a user, a service, or a VO. We describe technology, organisation and policies.

TL;DR: Here is the list of HDF-AAI enabled services


The goal is to enable several stakeholders with a Helmholtz background to accomplish several tasks:

  • Enable the participating Helmholtz Centres to provide services to well defined sets of federated users, based on solid authentication and authorisation.
  • Enable Principal Investigators (VO Managers) at Helmholtz Centres to allocate resources on behalf of their group (Virtual Organisations / VOs) and to manage the authorisations for the members of their groups / VOs.
  • Enable global researchers to use services provided by Helmholtz Centres - given they are properly authorised and their identity is adequately understood.
  • Be in line with European activities that focus around the European Open Science Cloud EOSC

The HDF AAI is organised in Virtual Organisations (VOs), and based on the Proxy Concept introduced by the => AARC Blueprint.

Please note that services that are in development can be added to the production AAI, as long as they do not have any dependency on specific AAI features.
