How to get IDS_certified: The road to become partner in a data ecosystem

Cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on is of fun­da­men­tal impor­t­ance for IDS and one of its core com­pon­ents.

Cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on in gene­ral pro­vi­des a very high degree of trans­pa­ren­cy. This trans­pa­ren­cy is achie­ved by making the requi­re­ments for the audi­tee and the audi­tors and the com­ple­te cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on pro­cess avail­ab­le for public.

The trans­pa­ren­cy is also key for the main goal of cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on: Trust. Trust is the basis for a suc­cess­ful col­la­bo­ra­ti­on bet­ween part­ners, in busi­ness as well as in social life. Due to the impor­t­ance of col­la­bo­ra­ti­on for the IDS, cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on works as an enab­ler for busi­ness and use cases. Col­la­bo­ra­ti­on is the basis for the IDS its­elf and the­re­fo­re, it is necessa­ry to estab­lish trust by cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on bet­ween the part­ners in IDS. Cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on is pro­vi­ding this trust by ensu­ring the secu­ri­ty for ever­yo­ne in a trans­pa­rent way. Secu­ri­ty is and will always be rela­ti­ve, but cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on defi­nes a stan­dar­di­zed level for secu­ri­ty rela­ted to tech­ni­cal and orga­niz­a­tio­nal aspects.

The IDS needs this trust through cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on. The­re­fo­re, IDS Cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on is tailorma­de for the spe­ci­fic IDS con­text. This IDS Cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on is com­pa­ti­ble with com­mon­ly used secu­ri­ty stan­dards like ISO 27001 and IEC 62443, so exis­ting docu­men­ta­ti­ons and set­ups for the achie­ved cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­ons can be re-used in IDS. This mini­mi­zes the effort during IDS cer­ti­fi­ca-tion pro­cess for the orga­niz­a­ti­ons invol­ved.

The IDS is a hete­ro­ge­ne­ous envi­ron­ment with dif­fe­rent busi­ness models and IDS use cases. For this rea­son, the IDS Cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on has a fle­xi­ble set­up and pro­vi­des dif­fe­rent levels of cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on accord­ing to the inten­ded use cases. In order to build such a cus­to­mi­zed IDS Cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on, various sta­ke­hol­ders have been invol­ved during the deve­lo­p­ment. To sum it up, IDS Cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on is cus­to­mi­zed for the spe­cial con­di­ti­ons in the IDS con­text and pro­vi­des the basis for the IDS: Trust.
