Digital services everywhere are getting more and more convenient, which means people are expecting the same from their governments. The key enabler to this is government data exchange.
For a modern state to function and offer different digital services to its citizens, it needs interoperability. Government data exchange works based on the once-only principle, meaning that if a citizen has already provided information once, the state will not ask for it again, but use different registries and information systems to retrieve it itself. The data exchange layer enables a secure Internet-based data exchange between information systems. That way all members can use the services and data of other members to improve their own business processes.
Government interoperability does not affect the integrity, availability or confidentiality of data. The solution has a versatile security method: authentication, multi-level authorisation, high-level system for processing logs, and data traffic that is encrypted and signed. The owner controls the data throughout the whole process, and the technology only offers a secure data exchange.
