Andrew File System (AFS)

Using the Andrew File System (AFS) TU members can use their personal storage as an external hard drive for documents, pictures, other files and their personal website from any computer and from all over the world. TU departments are enabled to publish digital work documents directly.
The service is based on AFS, Kerberos and SAN. AFS serves for the access to your data, Kerberos provides the security while signing in (protection against unauthorised access to critical data) and SAN provides the physical disk space.
