The IDS Reference Architecture Model (IDS-RAM) constitutes the conceptual basis of IDS-compliant data exchange between organizations. In addition to specifying rules and mechanisms ensuring data sovereignty within data ecosystems, version 3.0 of the IDS-RAM, which was presented for the first time at this year’s Hannover Fair, focuses on concepts such as big data, artificial intelligence, the industrial internet of things, and blockchain technology to be leveraged for IDS. “The new version of the IDS-RAM defines safety standards, control and enforcement rules for data usage, and mechanisms for data traceability and data provenance checks”, says Sebastian Steinbuss, Director
Architecture at IDSA.
The IDS-RAM 3.0
• focuses on certification, security, and governance,
• defines security standards plus roles and responsibilities for the data economy,
• stipulates control and enforcement rules for data usage, and
• specifies rules and mechanisms for data traceability and identification of data sources.
