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:
- 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.
- 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.
