One of the central components of the International Data Spaces

The Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces are a vir­tu­al data space lever­aging exis­ting stan­dards and tech­no­lo­gies, as well as accep­ted gover­nan­ce models. It enab­les the secu­re exchan­ge and easy linkage of data in a trusted busi­ness eco­sys­tem. Data secu­ri­ty and trust are two fun­da­men­tal cha­rac­te­ris­tics of the Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces. Par­ti­ci­pant and core com­po­nent cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on wit­hin the Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces are two cor­ner­stones of the IDS con­cept.

Par­ti­ci­pants and core com­pon­ents shall pro­vi­de a suf­fi­ci­ent­ly high degree of trust and secu­ri­ty regar­ding the inte­gri­ty, con­fi­den­tia­li­ty and avai­la­bi­li­ty of infor­ma­ti­on exch­an­ged in the IDS. The­re­fo­re, using cer­ti­fied core com­pon­ents as well as employ­ing cer­ti­fied tech­ni­cal and orga­ni­za­tio­nal secu­ri­ty mea­su­res is man­dato­ry for par­ti­ci­pa­ting in the IDS.

To ope­ra­tio­na­li­ze the cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on for par­ti­ci­pants and core com­pon­ents, the cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on pro­cess is to take place in two pha­ses:

  1. IDS_ready Review: The review is car­ri­ed out by mem­bers of the WG cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on; the IDSA Head Office is respon­si­ble for issuing the IDS_ready state­ments.
  2. IDS Cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on: The eva­lua­ti­on will be car­ri­ed out by eva­lua­ti­on faci­li­ties appro­ved by the IDS Cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on Body; the IDS Cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on Body is respon­si­ble for issuing the IDS cer­ti­fi­ca­tes.

As an IDS_ready ear­ly adop­ter, you will be in a pole posi­ti­on for when IDS cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on, sla­ted for the second half of 2019, beco­mes avail­ab­le for IDSA mem­bers.
