The AAF Services are RESTful HTTP/S accessed.  However, utilizing AAF for Authentication and Authorization depends on the Technology used.  Your Service may be a Java Servlet, at which point, you would utilize the J2EE Plugin (CadiFilter) which utilizes the CADI Framework in an easy-to-plugin manner, but if your code is not a Servlet, you can utilize the CADI Framework Directly.
