Electronic Data Interchange for Internet (EDI-INT)Applicability Statement 2 (AS2)

basic security fundamentals
Basic Security Fundamentals

Privacy – message content privacy via data encryption

The document can only be viewed by the Sender/Receiver

Authentication – via sender’s digital signature

The sender is actually who they claim to be

Integrity – hash totals are enclosed in MDNs

Document cannot be altered w/o the receiver detecting a change

Non-repudiation – signed MDN receipt acknowledgment

The receiver cannot claim they did not receive the document
