Trust is one of the highest rated requirements for collaboration in industrial environments, such as material provider and productive consumer, e.g. automotive production. Especially when exchange of sensitive data is required purely trust is not sufficient due of the fact that access to IT systems is outside of human’s control. A technical solution is mostly required to ensure data sovereignty on both ends, establishing trust by using technology.

SAP wants to make use of IDS data sharing concepts to improve business processes by providing smart data apps which facilitate intercompany collaboration.
The example of the „collaborative warranty and quality management“ apps illustrate how repair shops are incentivized to share vehicle quality data along the manufacturing supply chain, irrespective of their relevance for warranty claims. Suppliers of any tier gain transparency of quality issues from different downstream branches. When suppliers perform a root cause analysis of such quality issues, they can integrate downstream or upstream quality and usage data which is shared subject to usage policies.

Maritime shipping companies are required by law to transmit a set of important data before entering every port. There are various industry solutions for this data exchange such as the Veracity ecosystem in the market today. All of them are very complex and time intensive to manage.
Providers and organizations on shore do not have access to ship data like emissions, fuel consumption and route details. Data access agreements between data providers such as ship owners, authorities or shipyard equippers as well as service providers that take care of for example data analysis and process improvements must be negotiated individually. A common ecosystem for data exchange from ship to shore , that simplifies the process and does not exist.
The IDS-based Maritime Data Space brings together all participants and platforms in one trusted and secure data ecosystem. It ensures transparent access to ship-related data, enables secure, stable and efficient communication between ship and shore, and provides value-added and trusted services for ship operations.
Autonomous shipping, environmental sustainability, industry 4.0 technologies, and the connection between ships are current trends that the Maritime Data Space addresses in an innovative way. The combination of the Norwegian DNV GL Veracity data platform with an IDS-based ecosystem strengthens Norway’s position in international maritime data exchange and sharing. Last but not least, the Maritime Data Space satisfies customer and regulatory demand for transparency.

Smart Parking is a digital solution to improve parking in a city, reduce air pollution and support local businesses. Drivers in a city are not navigated to their destination, but to the nearest available parking space. They can register their preferred shopping profiles. These anonymised marketing profiles are matched with shops near the parking spaces. Matching shop offers are returned with hash codes for the possible offers. If the driver shops at that particular shop, their parking fee is paid by the shop.
Smart Connected Supplier Network is an initiative of manufacturing companies and their IT-suppliers in the high-tech manufacturing supply chain. The aim is to facilitate cross-factory communication and thus ensuring supply chain transparency and interoperability, resulting in an overall productivity improvement of 20%. This is realized by reducing the administrative burden and facilitating collaboration between supply chain partners. Unlike traditional centralized platform initiatives, SCSN is fully based on the principles of digital and data sovereignty. There is no central entity controlling the data. A non-profit foundation chairs the data sharing agreements, but the implementation is done by the involved IT-suppliers. Unlike existing EDI-initiatives, these agreements not only address the semantics, but also the technical and legal aspects between partners in the ecosystem.
SCSN is designed as a highly scalable solution by providing a network approach (four-corner model) which consists of the following two aspects:

To adapt to changing market dynamics, organizations are collaborating more than ever in increasingly complex and agile supply chains, requiring a flexible exchange of many (often commercially sensitive) datasets with a variety of stakeholders.
Organizations in logistics are currently developing and implementing digitization strategies to adapt and prepare to extract value from these opportunities. However, the scale of the challenge transcends the boundaries of organizations. This project builds on the work and analysis of the needs, approach, positioning and roadmap for a Dutch logistics data space in the recently published white paper on the logistics infrastructure for data sharing.
Motivated because of conclusions from the white paper and previous research that there is a need for a Dutch Logistics Data Space (DLDS) that expands the limited functions of the current framework approaches for logistics agreements (such as iSHARE) and meets international developments and standards as also applicable in other sectors in the increasingly cross-sectoral and intertwined supply chains. That is why the DASLOGIS project aims to develop a DLDS: a digital virtual environment or ecosystem that enables the finding and controlled sharing of (potentially) sensitive data. It offers flexibility, extensibility, and personalization to support the three main types of logistics data exchange: "sharing transaction data for operational optimization," "sharing (big) data for data for data analysis," and "supply chain data sharing for real-time visibility."
DLDS will be based on the generic and internationally standardized IDS reference architecture model, supplemented and adapted to Dutch logistics needs where applicable. The Proof of Concept (PoC) of the DLDS is validated using three functional prototypes. The project partners will also demonstrate and assess the technical feasibility and business value of a DLDS for the Dutch logistics sector based on logistics use case.

The Smart Factory is a step towards the Industry 4.0 vision for smart manufacturing where different machines interact with each other without, or with minimal, human control. The use case and involved IDS Solutions provide multiple benefits. For example, machines (and the companies that operate them) can better control with whom and what data is shared, and how data consumers handle the shared data. Moreover, IDS provides a systematic way to introduce new machines / companies into the factory and no case-by-case integration solutions are needed. With the IDS certification scheme, different stakeholders (both in-factory and external) can ensure that the utilized data exchange components address required security requirements. Finally, IDS brings improved interoperability across different data exchange protocols and formats, and data models.

The scenario for trusted data exchange for aeronautics includes data exchange between engineers, design and testing centres, and aviation companies across country borders. This means that different data protection laws apply. IDS connectors ensure that data can be managed in a safe and standardized manner, allowing for better condition monitoring and detection of anomalies for quality assurance. The connector development plays a crucial role in this scenario as cost reductions for quality assurance become possible. The implementation of the Data Sovereignty principles, following the International Data Space Association Reference Architecture Model, guarantees from on hand to control the access and the usage of data (cross-countries, cross-companies, etc.), on the other hand, the creation of an ecosystem ready to be extended to satisfy new needs and communicate with existing companies using a common vocabulary.

Intelligent traffic and mobility systems require a large amount of data in order to support decisions in the best possible way or even to take them automatically. Although countless mobility data are already collected and processed today, comprehensive utilization of these data is often not possible for technical, legal or economic reasons. With the Mobility Data Space (MDS), an open IDS-based data space that goes beyond the secure exchange of sensitive mobility data, as well as linking existing data platforms with one another (cf. Mobility Data Marketplace – MDM). In this way, comprehensive mobility data can be made available in the future without worrying about misuse of data.
The MDS enables the sovereign handling of data for digital mobility solutions. Common legal frameworks based on European data protection guidelines form the basis for this.
By linking offers from different mobility providers, individual mobility can be better combined with public transport offers and sharing providers. New possibilities also arise for traffic control by local authorities when data from private motor vehicles are combined with parking space utilization data and data from local public transport. Real-time information, for example, taking road works or traffic jams into account, allows flexible adjustment of routes for private and public transport vehicles. The perspective to be compliant with other data spaces that cover different domains create a whole new understanding of the mobility sector. The MDS will go live in the first half of 2022 as one of the first IDS-based data space operating at the market worldwide.

The digitization of the energy transition aims to harness information from a large number of decentralized power generators. With the prospect of green hydrogen gaining importance in the energy sector, the sources of electricity supply for the electrolysis of hydrogen is important. Operation of electrolyzers need to consider availability of green electricity, actual power prices and grid situation. In this use case wind power should be used for hydrogen production when the resource is available.
Communication between the plants and systems takes place via an Energy Data Space. Here, plants exchange data according to agreed rules and under certain conditions. An IDS connector implements these rules and processes. The concept of International Data Spaces thus enables all players to make self-determined decisions about the use of their data, thus enabling their digital sovereignty.
The turbine operator provides a data resource with operational data via an IDS connector. An energy management system from a third party provides the digital service to create an optimized schedule which is then sent to the electrolyzer for operation.

Focusing on decision-making around transportation as an area of critical importance, we sought to build proof of concept for many-to-many connections that could be utilized in a smart city context. Our case involved two data lakes – one associated with energy use, the other with transportation and logistics. With the help of common design principles, ecosystem, a layered approach and building blocks, we were able to connect different parties together and make trusted and harmonized data sharing a reality. In this case, the result was improved information around decision-making for transportation, but it is easy to see how this generalizes to other smart city scenarios where acquiring and integrating different data sources enables better decision-making, innovation and new service creation.

By using the IDS connector, companies affiliated with a SCSN Service Provider can digitally exchange supply chain related messages with companies affiliated with another SCSN Service Provider.
IT service providers only need a single integration to connect to their complete supply chain.
The ADVANEO DMP is a collaboration portal that enables the data-sovereign formation of Data Spaces for data-driven applications. Thereby, integrated AI tools, data models and applications as well as free access to millions of Open Data support the development of data-driven innovation projects. For this purpose, the ADVANEO DMP is based on the reference architecture of the International Data Space Association and in the future also the GAIA-X standards.
As a result, the DMP acts as a broker service for data products: They are made globally discoverable by the marketplace with the help of their metadata. The DMP has no contact with the actual raw data at any time. These remain with the provider and are only transmitted directly to the interested party in peer-to-peer encrypted form by an IDS-Connector after successful license acquisition. If required, several parties process sensitive data in dedicated groups without access to the raw data of the other parties. Only the exploitation result is accessible to all. This enables the sharing of confidential data in value chains.
EUHubs4Data (EUH4D) project aims to establish the European federation of data driven Innovation Hubs, through the collaboration of relevant initiatives in Europe, creating of an European federated catalogue of assets (services, data, training) and making it available at regional level by the hubs in the federation. IDS reference model has been selected as the model to enable the interoperability between services and datasets of the hubs in the federation, providing a trusted environment where to share data and the corresponding data governance features, including data sovereignty. IDSA is a partner in the project. The project is selecting 42 experiments through three rounds of open calls, where SMEs will use the assets of the federation to solve real use cases and move their data driven products and services closest to the market. These experiments will also serve as a way to check and improve the interoperability framework based on the IDS model.
To leverage the potential of European initiatives on data driven innovation, making accessible to SMEs and other small actors at regional and local level last European advances on Big Data and AI, and providing a unique environment for data driven experimentation

The PAIRS research project, which has now been launched and is funded by the BMWI with 10 million euros, can forecast the effects of crisis situations and derive options for action. The goal is to develop a cross-domain platform for AI-supported crisis management. This is to model crisis scenarios based on data, forecast their consequences and design recommended courses of action for users. In this way, the system will enable companies to implement early warning systems to maintain supply chains and protect overall productivity. With all of this, sovereign access to the required data is guaranteed by building upon the IDS & GAIA-X standards. With this, the solution will be able to connect to existing Data Spaces as well as to build up new ones.

The key goal of the use case is the digitalization of the customary purpose of light commercial vehicles (LCV). This will include turning equipped LCV's into participants of an IDS-powered data-economy by leveraging available data from multiple source, execute pre-defined and use case-specific algorithms and offer the computed results back to the data economy. Parts of the solution will be: 1) Deliver an IDS-compliant control unit as edge device in light commercial vehicles and 2) orchestrate a data and application framework to download and execute use case-specific application on the edge device. IDS helps in two ways: enable an easy scalability across multiple data produces and data consumers in light of European data values (sovereignty, transparency, control).
As of today, connected commercial vehicles only focus on telemetry and environmental data. Our solution will allow commercial fleets to fully digitalize the LCV within its digital process chain.

Digitization is driving new mobility concepts. Traffic and mobility data are becoming the raw material for multimodality, automated and connected driving, and other future solutions. The Mobilithek is right in the middle of the action.
Whenever you aim to provide or find high quality mobility data in Germany, you can hardly get around the Mobilithek. As neutral G2B and B2B platform the Mobilithek offers suppliers and users of mobility to share, search and subscribe to mobility-relevant online data.
With its defined standards for data exchange – among others based on IDS components – the Mobilithek offers nation’s biggest volume of information on traffic flows, traffic jams, road works, mobility options, parking facilities and more.
The Mobilithek is continuously working to make as much mobility data as possible accessible, across different means of transport, network elements and actors. This includes mobility data that is offered parallelly on other data portals in Germany, e.g. geoportal.de, mCLOUD.de, MDM, open-data-oepnv.de. Such parallel data offers will gradually be made visible on the Mobilithek as well. The evolution of the Mobilithek also will lead to an alignment with the Mobility Data Space (MDS) (link to previous posts) which will grant data sovereignty for Mobilithek users beyond the border of the platform and open up the entire Mobilithek to participants of MDS.
The transformation of the existing IT infrastructure to an event- and microservice-based software architecture involves a great deal of effort and also risks, since the transformation must take place in parallel with ongoing operations. The entire business logic (at least on the customer side) and thus the control of functions and processes must be mapped in microservices and orchestrated to form the overall service.
For Würth, this presents an opportunity to install and establish a modern digital infrastructure with the corresponding services that will enable the future-proof, flexible, scalable and sustainable provision of services in the platform economy.

During deployments, it is critical that Defense can share critical up-to-date information with aid agencies, local authorities, and other civilian parties. However, these partners are not part of the secure defense network.
FEDICE - an acronym for Federated Digital Collaboration Environment - ensures that Defense and its partners can continue to share information digitally in a simple, manageable, and secure way.
TNO and CGI have been working together for the Department of Defense on this NTP (National Technology Project) for the past two years. They have developed an intelligent platform for information management in federations. The platform enables rapid ad hoc collaboration with aid organizations and other partners, while keeping the data at the source. FEDICE supports the sharing of information as needed.
Throughout all of this, confidentiality of information is taken into account to ensure that data does not get to the wrong places. In addition, logging makes it possible to track which data was released at what time and in which version. The prototype developed was successfully tested earlier this year during a large-scale exercise by the 13th Light Brigade of the Royal Netherlands Army. It has demonstrably made a good step from theory to practice.

The health sector is highly regulated and health data is considered to be worthy of special protection. Most of the data from the first and second health domains are locked in proprietary systems that significantly hinder the pooling and secondary use of health data. In addition to a centrally controlled collection of health data, as in China, or a largely libertarian, economically designed consolidation along the lines of the U.S. model, there is scope for Europe to design a third path, that of a citizen-centered health data space. The strategic orientation of this concept is to place citizens at the center of the provision, use and control of their own health data from the primary and secondary health markets and thereby to expand Europe's differentiating competitive advantage. Health data will be integrated into a legitimate, open and supported dataLOFT platform and made accessible according to GAIA-X standards.
The goal is to develop transparent, cloud-based health applications with leading representatives of health IT and health care. The concepts of the Medical Informatics Initiative for semantic and syntactic interoperability and regulated data use, as well as legally binding Gema-tik standards and solutions of the telematics infrastructure will be integrated for the networking of the health sectors and the integrative use of the data. dataLOFT will create an ecosystem of health applications based on the data sovereignty of citizens and patients as users and donors of health data and thus contribute to a broad acceptance and high economic relevance of dataLOFT.

The digitization of education is intended to improve educational opportunities and make them fairer. However, in order to identify individual educational needs through algorithms, for example, extensive personal data requiring a high degree of protection (e.g., educational path, goals) is required, which must not be digitally processed because of threats to fundamental rights. The Corona Crisis urgently calls for a solution to this contradiction.
The goal of the project is to create specially protected educational data spaces, including services, which are available via marketplaces. To establish data sovereignty, the services will be certified according to their compliant data use and provision. Interoperability of these will be ensured by means of business model interfaces. Existing services will be brought into the project and adapted to conform to the marketplace and educational data space. The added value of the project and the underlying Gaia-x infrastructure will be demonstrated by means of several application examples. The implemented services will be linked to data-secure AI-supported digital assistants that support learners in a data-supervised manner in career orientation and career planning.

A very important aspect of the competitiveness in the wind farms is the maintenance of all the components of the wind turbine. Only wind farm developers and wind turbine manufacturers (OEMs) have access to data collected from operating wind turbines and are therefore the only actors currently working on extracting added value from data at the "top of the value chain". Therefore, most European wind turbine component suppliers, engineering companies or ICT companies cannot obtain, manage, analyse, and learn from the data produced by wind turbines in operation, thus missing the opportunity to improve their competitiveness.
The use case shows how the adoption of the IDSA Architecture boost the exchange of the data monitored by the sensors installed in wind turbines, which belong to the wind farm owner and the OEM, with other interested third parties such as technology and component suppliers, as secure data exchange and data sovereignty is guaranteed.
Furthermore, it is also shown how this data sharing enables added value creation through information fusion. The deployment of the solution combines edge processing with the cloud demonstrating its applicability in wind turbine plants.

The City Dataspace aims to enable the data-driven smart city of tomorrow by enabling compatibility of heterogeneous open and urban data from different municipalities together with data from other stakeholders across city boundaries. For this purpose, the City Dataspace relies on the established semantic technologies, combined with new innovative concepts to simplify the use of the required technologies. These concepts are intended to make it possible to provide semantically annotated data in an interoperable way with little effort. This interoperability should enable app developers to develop an app once and roll it out to a large number of municipalities using the City Dataspace. Conversely, the City Dataspace enables municipalities to participate in existing apps just by making their data available.

Although many projects/initiatives have dealt and/or are dealing with developing data platforms architectures in diversified application domains, not many projects have addressed integration in port environments with the possibility of including cognitive services/applications and extending/federating the platform to whole transportation routes covering whole Europe. Lack of interoperable, scalable, reliable data platforms causes major technological and business issues such as the impossibility to plug non-interoperable data sources into heterogeneous data platforms, the impossibility to develop applications to exploit heterogeneous data in homogeneous and/or cross domains, slowness of data technology introduction at a large-scale, discouragement in adopting data sharing technology, increase of costs, scarce reusability of data, user dissatisfaction, and lack of unified data governance mechanisms.
DataPorts aims to design, develop, set-up and operate a data platform for the trusted, secure and reliable data sharing with IDS connectors and trading among the actors operating in the diverse supply chains involved in the seaports, also enabling the connection with other stakeholders in the logistics supply chain.
The adoption and use of this Data Platform by existing connected / digital ports will imply their transition to actual cognitive ports, taking real advantage of the huge amount of data produced by the stakeholders and opening the way to new capabilities: Real-time control of operations; Streamlined decision making; Accurate prediction of future events and situations; Prescriptive analytics.
In the context of the DataPorts project, an industrial data platform (cognitive ports data platform) has been designed and implemented that: 1. Connects to different digital infrastructures currently existing in digital seaports, enabling the interconnection of a wide variety of systems into a tightly integrated ecosystem, 2. Sets the policies for a trusted and reliable data sharing and trading based on data owners’ rules and offering a clear value proposition, and 3. Leverages on the data collected to provide advanced data analytics services based on which the different actors in the port value chain cloud develop novel AI and cognitive applications. In the context of the DataPorts platform, to realize data sharing and data exchange, two main approaches are considered: • Data is stored off-chain: Generally, in this approach, we follow the concept of the International Data Spaces Association (IDSA) reference architecture model. In a nutshell, we consider the P2P data exchange between the data owners and data consumers through the IDSA connectors. To ensure the security and privacy aspects, blockchain manages consent of access to data. Smart contracts decide if a particular access to data is allowed concerning the invoker’s credentials and the specification of access rules for the data. • Data is stored on-chain (blockchain for shared data): Blockchain platform records transactions related to shared data and processes of all participants in a business network. For instance, cold chains alarms of a container for verification of its state such as if conditions have been compromised, allows everybody in the network to be aware of the event and act upon it. This approach in fact ensures verifiable and immutable information on shared data through the entire chain to all business network participants, serving as a single source of truth and providing transparency and a not-repudiation process. In the first approach, the data (sovereign data) is kept on the owner’s premises. The metadata for sovereign data is published to the broker (IDSA broker). A data consumer needs to understand whether the data he seeks is a shared data stored in Blockchain or is stored by a data owner. To clarify this, the data consumer must access the IDSA broker, and in case the data is sovereign data, data sharing rules are used to determine if a data access is allowed. Eventually, in case of a legitimate data access, a peer-to-peer secure communication with data owner to obtain data is initialized through IDSA connectors.

The latest draft of the "Act to Accelerate the Use of Liquefied Natural Gas” („Gesetzes zur Beschleunigung des Einsatzes verflüssigten Erdgases“) sees a significant change in reallocation of LNG import terminals for the import of hydrogen. In the draft, it is no longer mandatory that green hydrogen or its derivatives must replace the fossil fuel LNG. Now there is talk of "climate-neutral hydrogen and derivatives". This means that hydrogen based on natural gas, of which CO2 is fully captured and not released into the atmosphere can also be used. With blue hydrogen, the CO2 would be stored underground (CCS). In the case of turquoise hydrogen, it would be done using the – at large-scale not yet tested – methane pyrolysis converted into solid matter. In both cases it would have to be ensured that during extraction and transport of the natural gas no methane escapes. In theory, even hydrogen falls into this category, that would be produced by electrolysis using nuclear power.
A project draft (Projektskizze) has already been submitted to BMBF under the acronym "h2republic". The goal is that a new "H2 Data Space" for sovereign data exchange shall be created, which shall stand at the basis of the "H2 Metaverse" platform. Due to the technical complexity of the "H2 Data Space", it should remain hidden to the eye of the conventional "H2 Metaverse" platform user. Hence, the "H2 Data Space" shall be the interface to the programmers and smart service providers, whereas the "H2 Metaverse" shall be the interface to the conventional Fuel Cells and Hydrogen (FCH) players by using predefined smart services according to their requirements. Such smart federated services can/shall be the implementation of standardized Digital Twins for ensuring cross-sectoral interoperability along the entire value chain and for depicting the entire physical hydrogen world into the digital H2 Metaverse, which at the end should become a de-facto standard for the entire gas domain.
Fuel Cells and Hydrogen (FCH) technologies are defined as sector coupling technologies for coupling the energy and mobility sector together. Hence, it is obvious, that the newly created "H2 Data Space" will link up the already existing energy and mobility data spaces and of course other as well. On the other hand, in order to ensure sovereign data exchange and interoperability, it will try to digitally interconnect all FCH clusters worldwide. In order to prevent lock-in effects, the H2 Metaverse shall not belong to one person or entity but to the whole users and be created by them while being at the same time free of charge. With regard to the business model, this shall be realized via company participation (Gesellschaftsbeteiligung) with all the 16 German states (Bundesländer), similar to the already existing company participation of the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg to the "mobility data space".
The H2 Metaverse platform shall be similar to the Catena-X platform in terms of visibility. For this all the necessary IDS components, like for example the IDS/Eclipse Connector and so on shall be used.

The Medical Data Space is a trustworthy infrastructure for the secure exchange of health data between distributed players (patient, doctor, clinic, relatives, service providers, manufacturers, etc.). This is intended to improve prevention, care, diagnosis and treatment processes and enable innovative health-promoting business models. The use of data can be controlled in a user-friendly, transparent and privacy-compliant manner. Modern algorithms help in the targeted use of data.
Any organization or individual seeking permission to operate components in the International Data Spaces needs to pass the Operational Environment Certification which ensures secure processes and management of components.
Comparably, each IDS component is expected to behave in adherence with IDS specifications and to protect the data which is transferred and processed. It shall allow participants to assess the possible consequences of data sharing and provide transparent information. Therefore, components need to pass the Component Certification before they may be used in the IDS.
While the certification of organizations and individuals focuses on security and trust, the certification of components additionally refers to compliance with technical requirements ensuring interoperability.
To ensure a consistent process in the certification of participants and core components, the IDS uses a certification scheme comprising all processes, rules, and standards governing the certification process. The IDS Certification Scheme follows best practices from internationally recognized certification concepts.
The certification body oversees the certification process regarding quality assurance and framework governance. It defines standard evaluation procedures and supervises the actions of the evaluation facilities. A certificate is granted only if both, the evaluation facility, and the certification body have concluded that all preconditions for certification are fulfilled.
Contracted by an applicant, the evaluation facility is responsible for carrying out the detailed technical and/or organizational evaluation work during a certification process. The evaluation facility issues an evaluation report for the respective organization/individual or core component, listing details regarding the evaluation process and an assessment whether all requirements are properly fulfilled.
The approval scheme for evaluation facilities can be found here.
The applicant is not just the subject of the evaluation and certification process but plays an active part in it. An applicant needs to actively apply to trigger the certification process. During the certification process, the Applicant provides all necessary material needed for the evaluation and certification of its component or organization and supports with questions or issues arising.
For Assurance Level 1, the applicant must apply directly to the certification body to trigger the start of the certification process.
Once the certification body accepts the application, the applicant is responsible for the evaluation phase by conducting a self-assessment and providing the results to the certification body. In the certification phase, the certification body reviews the self-assessment and issues the certificate, if the self-assessment meets the defined requirements.
Fig.: Certification Process for Assurance Level 1
Assurance Level 2 and 3 require an independent evaluation facility to conduct the evaluation of the component or operational environment. The applicant must contract an evaluation facility. Together, applicant and evaluation facility finalize the application for certification with the certification body.
Afterwards, the evaluation facility is responsible for carrying out the evaluation according to the IDS certification scheme. The evaluation facility documents their progress and findings in an evaluation report which is passed on to the certification body at the end of the evaluation phase.
In the certification phase, the certification body examines the evaluation report and issues a certificate, if the evaluation was conducted properly and led to a positive evaluation result.
IDS Certification ensures that IDS components and organizations or individuals who want to participate in data sharing meet the highest security standards.
These standards are industry-proven security criteria derived from ISO/IEC 27001 (international standard for information security management) and IEC 62443 (cybersecurity for operational technology in automation and control systems). In addition, IDS Certification implements security criteria defined in the Cloud Computing Compliance Criteria Catalogue
(C5) and the CSA Cloud Controls Matrix. Finally, IDS certification captures IDS specific criteria.
The certification criteria are defined in the IDS Certification criteria catalogs.
IDS Certification ensures that IDS components and organizations or individuals who want to participate in data sharing provide a sufficiently high degree of trust and security. Nevertheless, the IDS Certification has a flexible setup and provides different levels of certification according to the intended use cases.
To ensure on the one hand a low entry barrier specifically suitable for SME’s and on the other hand a scalable certification to meet high information security requirements, three different security levels, with an increasing extent of the security requirements that need to be fulfilled, were defined:

Due to the great freedom of design, additive manufacturing (AM) offers enormous potential for lightweight construction. In order to harness this potential, it is crucial to integrate knowledge between the individual stages of the AM value chain. By digitally linking AM process and product data, lightweight design and production can be further optimized in economic and ecological terms. The present use case demonstrates the added value for the lightweight potential of additively manufactured (laser powder bed fusion (LPBF)) aluminum components when decentralized material and AM process data is shared between actors via a cross-institutional data space.
In the present use case, a design engineer aims to optimize a component, originally manufactured by casting AlSi10Mg, with regard to lightweight design by means of topology optimization for AM. A process-specific topology optimization algorithm (PSTO) will provide an optimized design and also knowledge of the best suited combination of AM-machine, part orientation in build space and a heat treatment. As input for this design algorithm, decentralized data about mechanical material characteristics, AM process parameters and post-processing information such as heat or surface treatment has to be shared and linked in an automatic manner. Since the different data is provided by different actors, compliance with the FAIR data principles is paramount.
To meet this need, a data space architecture based on the International Data Spaces (IDS) reference architecture model is designed and implemented. By doing so, the very first instance of the Materials Data Space® (MDS) is created. Using the MDS in this context ensures
The knowledge graphs describe the entire process chain from additive manufacturing to mechanical testing and embed the resulting data in its context through an ontology-based process model. These semantic metadata enable the linking of data in the sense of a cross-institutional data fabric and automated data analysis for intelligent lightweight design by the design engineer.

Trustful cross-company data exchange requires secure soft- and hardware components. All IDS components must meet a list of certification criteria to prove the provision of the required functionality, interoperability, and level of security. The evaluation of these certification criteria is conducted in the IDS core component certification.
The depth and rigor of a component evaluation consists of the following three assurance levels, independent on the type of component that is being certified:
The criteria that make up each of the three trust levels for a Connector are defined in such a way that they are specific enough to ensure interoperability with the functional requirements of an IDS Connector, yet general enough, to allow the use of a Connector in different deployment scenarios without having to define different criteria catalogues for each separate use case.
The following three trust levels are defined for the certification of a Connector:
The following figure illustrates all possible combinations of assurance and trust level, that an applicant can choose from.
This matrix approach allows the component developer to select a combination of assurance and trust level for their component that best correspond with the intended use cases.
On the one hand, this ensures a low entry barrier specifically suitable for SMEs. On the other hand, a scalable certification to meet high information security requirements becomes possible. purposes.
Participants in the International Data Spaces share valuable data. It is essential that all participant's organizational processes and operational environments are trustworthy. This trustworthiness is evaluated in the IDS operational environment certification.
Central elements of the IDS operational environment certification are the different trust levels and assurance levels. The IDS established these levels to offer suitable certification profiles for different use case requirements.
On one side, the following three trust levels are established:
Higher Trust Level represent the increasing number of criteria which needs to be fulfilled for a successful certification.
On the other side, the following three assurance levels are established:
Higher assurance level represent the increasing demand for more reliable evidence that needs to be presented in different evaluation methods to prove compliance with the certification criteria.

The safe and orderly flow and governance of data has become a global issue, and the cross-border flow of data is one of the most complex sub-issue. At the outset, the existing international data cross-border flow mechanism is experiencing pressure from various aspects such as “EU-US Privacy Shield Frameworks” agreement overturned and Standard Contractual Clauses require additional “supplementary measures”, etc. Given the fact that data has become more and more important for the development of both economy and society at large, the “investigation after the fact” approach cannot meet the satisfaction of some countries or regions for security and management concerns. In addition, how the different requirements for data export in different jurisdictions apply to the same business brings huge problems to practice when data keeps flowing. In this case, Macau University of Science and Technology and the Fraunhofer ISST are respectively located in different jurisdictions. As a consequence, the cross-border flow of scientific research data involving personal information often arises in the scientific research cooperation activities between the two parties. If we transfer any kind of data in the multi-center joint scientific research activities, except for the traditional research ethics requirements, the two parties must also meet the requirements of their respective laws and regulations on the export of personal information.
In order to explore the mechanism for the safe and orderly flow of data across borders in the digital era, we can together establish a trinity of “legal regulations + management mechanism + technical assurance” model in the field of scientific research, covering the whole process of “before, during and after course”.
This has not only mark the possible and trust way to realize the purpose of data cross-border issues that needed to be addressed, but also laid a solid foundation for the future exploration in regards to this area. It is also a great opportunity to promote the development and fame of IDS in Macau and Asia.
Due to the advancing digitalization of industrial value chain, increasingly large amounts of data are being generated in industry. Sharing data with partners in this domain, opens up new application and value propositions. This requires that the data can be interpreted across system and company boundaries, generally referred to as interoperability. The Platform Industry 4.0 proposes the Asset Administration Shell (AAS) specification for the digital represention of all assets. Additionally, the data security and data sovereignty challenges, which arise in such use-cases, are addressed by the IDS ecosystem.
By combining the AAS with the IDS, interoperability across company borders is created. Product and production data is represented in AAS digital twins and shared via IDS Connectors.
The AAS can describe all kinds of products and production equipment while linking data elements to semantic descriptions. The sharing of such data enables use-cases like the Platform Industry Collaboritive Condition Monitoring use-case or the automotive network Catena-X

A digital twin links several models of predictable features of an object and enables the simulation of scenarios of the same. In this way, the impact of new technologies on local climate, air quality and health can be demonstrated.
Developing a digital twin (or digital shadow) requires access to different data sources, efficient data management and data cleansing strategies. In addition, it requires resources for computationally intensive modelling, as well as evaluation processes and (online) feedback on the simulated entity. The possibility to exchange data in a decentralised way while maintaining data sovereignty is a key enabling factor.

The circular economy is a model of production and consumption in which existing materials and products are shared, leased, reused, repaired, refurbished and recycled for as long as possible. In this context, an intra-company, but above all also an inter-company data exchange based on decentralisation and data sovereignty is indispensable.
The Circular Economy Data Space brings together relevant stakeholders along the value chain of various materials, as well as waste management companies and research companies. Possible use case scenarios are Smart Waste, optimised waste management and recycling (e.g. increase in the reusability of materials in the textile industry, in the construction industry, for semiconductors and in the metal industry)

A sustainable design of the tourism landscape is indispensable for its long-term existence. The use of data makes it possible to scale tourism while taking sustainability aspsects into account. Thus, sharing data within the tourism sector, in addition to increasing value creation, enables the management of one of the most central problems of the 21st century - climate change.
The sustainable design of tomorrow's tourism is based on the exchange of data between different organisations. Accommodation providers, transport associations, lift operators, booking platforms, weather data providers and other stakeholders join forces and facilitate concrete use cases such as visitor flow management, prevention of overtourism or hotspot analyses. Furthermore, data from organisations within the tourism sector is of enormous value for other sectors, such as the energy sector or the mobility sector. The possibility to exchange data in a decentralised way while maintaining data sovereignty is a key enabling factor.

SCUNY (School – UNited – EconomY) should become a community and networking platform that offers networking and collaboration opportunities for students and professionals from business, politics and social organizations. In addition to the search for cooperation in projects or 1:1 mentoring, potential analyses can be carried out and mutual learning nuggets can be deposited and expert insights can be planned and offered, in which students or experienced professionals share their knowledge. There are already many offerings (from organizations and also ideas from students), but the interface that unites everything is missing.
The issues of data protection, trust, traceability, transparency and security are cornerstones for the (technical) functioning of the project. Without all this, sharing and exchanging learning progress and documents is difficult, especially because parents demand a controlled space for their children to work and develop. It is necessary to think not only about what content and functions can look like, but also what it takes to protect them from misuse, theft and manipulation. Rules must be defined and technically implemented that everyone must adhere to. So far, there is no suitable approach to doing this adequately.

Today's everyday digitalization and the increasing use of AI offer extraordinary opportunities and new answers to major challenges of our time: climate protection, urbanization and demography. In this context, the economically, socially and ecologically sustainable design of the future city is becoming particularly important. Key factors here are the mobility, logistics and energy sectors. A central challenge is to develop the range of products and services in ever shorter time intervals - and in terms of data sovereignty.
The living lab is an innovative concept for developing and testing new products and services together with potential users in a lifelike environment. The crucial advantage of the experimental approach is the possibility of continuous testing of new offers. As a test environment, the Bauhaus.MobilityLab becomes an incubator for future changes and thus a laboratory for innovation. Hereby, central challenges are the complex and dynamic structure of the involved systems, the management of data and services, as well as the implementation of individual solutions. All of these are also addressed in the architectures of sovereign data spaces, which is the reason for incorporating the principles of IDS and Gaia-X into the lab platform design.
Due to the Bauhaus.MobilityLab platform, the foundation for overarching development and testing of AI-based mobility, logistics and energy services in a real urban environment is being brought to life for the first time.

The goal of this pilot is to provide predictive maintenance of wind turbines with a focus on the generator and power converter, which can be applied to other pilots or use cases. However, nowadays, energy data does not generally comply with the FAIR principles. In fact, it is normally kept in silos within companies and it is hardly reused for other purposes than the ones initially conceived for. In addition, in certain cases access to data is limited to some influential big companies. This is a big innovation barrier for academia, RTOs and SMEs as they cannot leverage this data to develop new products and services. This situation around data is one of the main blockers for the energy transition.
IDS solutions are used as the basis of PLATOON’s solution for data sharing. PLATOON leverages sovereign data sharing as an enabler to develop innovative data analytics tools by combining data from multiple stakeholders from the energy value chain to unlock new value and further optimise the energy sector. Furthermore, apart from sovereign data sharing PLATOON also considers sovereign exchange of services (data analytics tools) allowing data providers to access a wide ecosystem of service providers. These innovations will contribute to accelerate the energy transition to achieve the goals set in the Green Deal.
PLATOON developed wind turbine digital twin with accurate physical and data-driven digital twins and models (physics-based simulation model, supervised data-driven model and normal behaviour data-driven model) that provides anomaly detection and fault diagnosis and isolation. Several business models have been defined in PLATOON regarding data/service sharing. In a nutshell, data is considered as an exchange token to get access to improved products (e.g. Wind Turbine Components with extended lifetime and enhanced performance) or data analytics services (e.g. HVAC operation optimisation, predictive maintenance tools) that can further optimise the Operation and Maintenance Cost and Improve the efficiency across the whole energy value chain.
Several IDS components have been developed PLATOON which have been added into IDSA Github:

This pilot use cases focuses on (1) predictive maintenance MV-LV electric transformers and (2) non-technical loss detection in smart grid. Instead of keeping data and tools in silos within companies, it is needed to make them reusable for other purposes than the ones initially conceived for. In addition, it needs to overcome the current innovation barrier in energy market around data exchange to foster innovative data services that can further optimise the smart grids operation and maintenance. In order to enable to overcome such challenges in energy market and provide the required services, it is important to have interoperable solutions with embedded data security for transmitting sensible data, which prompts digital transition of energy domain.

Several business models have been defined in PLATOON regarding data/service sharing. In a nutshell, data is considered as an exchange token to get access to improved products. For this use case, sensible data handling is important and it integrates data security and privacy data handling into the IDS solutions, so that sensible data in smart grid are well managed. Several data analytics tools are developed (e.g., electrical transformer RUL estimation, electrical transformer health index calculation, transformer oil analysis, electrical transformer health monitoring tool, maintenance activities impact assessment, asset operation optimization tool, prosumer segmentation model, technical loss model, global loss assessment model, NTL identification model). Thanks to PLATOON’s IDS solutions enhancing privacy data handling, sensible data in smart grid can be exchanged, the results from the different methodologies can be compared, and it enables easy knowledge transfer with reusable and shared data.

This pilot focuses on optimization of energy management system and predictive maintenance on smart buildings. The goal is to offer a better service to customers by reducing energy bill, increasing RES usage and reducing maintenance costs and downtimes. These challenges and goals are shared in many smart building customers. However, nowadays, energy data does not generally comply with the FAIR principles. In fact, it is normally kept in silos within companies and it is hardly reused for other purposes than the ones initially conceived for. This is a big innovation barrier for academia, RTOs and SMEs as they cannot leverage this data to develop new products and services. This situation around data is one of the main blockers for the energy transition. Additionally, some specific applications cannot expose an external internet connection and/or require low latencies, which makes necessary to host the data operations into edge.
This use case can connect three different domains : Energy, Smart building and Smart city, which is fully in line with the objectives of common data space. IDS solutions used as the basis of PLATOON’s solution for data sharing. PLATOON leverages sovereign data sharing as an enabler to develop innovative data analytics tools by combining data from multiple stakeholders from the energy value chain to unlock new value and further optimise the energy sector.

These innovations will contribute to accelerate the energy transition to achieve the goals set in the Green Deal.
PLATOON’s platforms are connected through IDS and common PLATOON semantic data models ensuring data trusts and interoperability. On top of them, several data analytics tools have been developed (e.g., PV self-consumption and HVAC operation optimisation to reduce energy bill, predictive maintenance on HVAC equipment) Several business models have been defined in PLATOON regarding data/service sharing. In a nutshell, data is considered as an exchange token to get access to improved products that can further optimise the Operation and Maintenance Cost and Improve the efficiency across the whole energy value chain.
