Authentication integration layer for the Australian Access Federation (AAF) and Plone

Project description


This package provides an integration layer for Plone for the Australian Access Federation (AAF), a Shibboleth-powered authentication federation. This package builds upon collective.shibboleth.


  • Configures the underlying authentication plugin to load user data from the relevant AAF attributes.

Most heavy lifting is now carried out by collective.shibboleth so this package just depends upon that.


Installation with Plone follows the standard practice of modifying your Buildout configuration like so, adding this package to your list of eggs:

recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
eggs +=

Once installed, this package will configure the underlying packages in Plone accordingly.

  • Changed various import step to be ZCML configured. [davidjb]

2.0 (2015-05-20)

  • Backwards incompatibility: because of the migration of portlet to collective.shibboleth, you need to remove the existing collective.aaf portlet before upgrading. [davidjb]
