Technical access to the International Data Spaces ecosystem
The connector is a software installed by the participating company or a platform thereby providing technical access to the IDS ecosystem. A connector can consist of monolithic or self-contained software, or simply a combination of various existing software, in compliance with the specifications of the Reference Architecture Model (RAM) and the International Data Spaces certification criteria building on that.
The IDSA Dataspace Protocol is a set of specifications designed to facilitate interoperable data sharing between entities governed by usage control and based on Web technologies. These specifications define the schemas and protocols required for entities to publish data, negotiate usage agreements, and access data as part of a federation of technical systems termed a dataspace.
