Core functions of MY DATA Control Technologies
MY DATA Control Technologies consists of three core functions:
MY DATA Control Enforcement: MY DATA Control Technologies offers control points for the enforcement of usage restrictions. These are easy to integrate into target systems (such as connectors). Connectors have already been prepared and are easy to extend with MY DATA Control Technologies. Controlled by the usage restrictions, these connectors can filter and mask data. Compliance with the usage restrictions is checked and enforced during all data processing in the connector.
MY DATA Control Technologies also offers the possibility of executing actions by means of additional (external) components, such as notification by e-mail. The functionality of the control points and execution of actions can be extended with plugins.
MY DATA Control Policies: New data usage restrictions can be created at runtime. Among other things, time and frequency-based usage (“Data may only be processed in the connector 5 times within one day”), situation-based usage (“Sensitive data may only be accessed during working hours”), and mask-based usage (“Personal data are masked for the service provider”) can be configured. The MY DATA Control Technologies policies support all usage restrictions that can be defined within International Data Spaces and can be created in a policy editor.
MY DATA Control Management: MY DATA Control Technologies combines the administration of data sovereignty requirements and technical components in a central administration interface. Administration of the policies within the International Data Spaces is realized through the connector.
The modular and component-based structure of MY DATA Control Technologies enables an extension of the functionality (including data modification, execution of actions, and information procurement) in future. MY DATA Control Technologies offers an own software development kit for this purpose, enabling linking and interaction with other systems (such as DAPS, directory services, e-mail).
