Applying for IDS_ready

Compliance to IDS reference architecture for components & organizations

Are you ready to be IDS_ready?

The cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on sche­me is one of the cen­tral com­pon­ents of the IDS. In order to make the over­all Inter­na­tio­nal Data Space con­cept usable, it is the­re­fo­re now necessa­ry to ope­ra­tio­na­li­ze the cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on for par­ti­ci­pants and core com­pon­ents. This 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 is car­ri­ed out by eva­lua­ti­on faci­li­ties appro­ved by the IDS Cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on Body; the IDS Cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on Body is respon­si­ble for issuing the IDS cer­ti­fi­ca­tes.

If you have deve­lo­ped an IDS Con­nec­tor, want to par­ti­ci­pa­te in the IDS as a data owner/consumer or want to pro­vi­de an IDS ser­vice (e.g. Bro­ker Ser­vice) to other IDS mem­bers, then now is the per­fect time to app­ly for the new­ly offe­red IDS_ready review, the pre­cur­sor of the IDS cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on star­ting later in 2019.
Cho­sen mem­bers of the Working Group Cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on will review your con­cept for an IDS Con­nec­tor or the tech­ni­cal and orga­niz­a­tio­nal secu­ri­ty mea­su­res of your com­pa­ny rele­vant to your plan­ned acti­vi­ty as an IDS par­ti­ci­pant.
As an IDS_ready ear­ly adop­ter, you will be in a pole posi­ti­on for when IDS cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on, sla­ted for the first half of 2019, beco­mes avail­ab­le for IDSA mem­bers.
