X-Road, the data exchange layer for information systems, is a technological and organizational environment enabling a secure Internet-based data exchange between information systems. The name of the X-Road comes from a comparison with a crossroad where different data collections and information systems collide in order to securely exchange information.
Main task of the sercurity server is to mediate queries in a way that ensures their proof value in the future.
More than 200 information systems communicate via the X-Road system which enables secure and immediate exchange of data. By integrating to the X-Road system, an organization can save multiple resources, because an interoperable and secure data exchange layer with all the other X-Road members already exists. Data exchange between all the members of the X-Road ecosystem is much more effective.
To ensure the completeness of data exchange and to identify the link of the mediated message and the member of the X-Road, all the following services provided by a qualified trust service provider and compliant to the X-Road requirements must be configured and available for using in the security server: certification, validity confirmation and time-stamping service. Members of the X-Road are obliged to use services that are provided by qualified trust service providers. SK’s qualified trust services are described in the configuration of the X-Road.
