AFS is a distributed file system
that uses caching to increase performance and strong authenication
using Kerberos, which makes it suitable for sharing files both on the
SLAC site and across the internet to other sites. It is the only
filesystem that has strong enough security to be used across the SLAC
SLAC maintains all home directory and most group space in AFS space.
