We are excited to announce that Pagero is now one of only 20 companies worldwide to be a CEF AS4 compliant solution. In May 2018 Pagero AB joined a number of Irish organisations in a consortium to apply for EU funding under the European Commission’s Digital Connecting Europe Facility (CEF). The project reached a successful end when, in September 2019, Pagero passed all conformance and connectivity tests. As a result, Pagero is in a leading position to offer clients and partners a fully compliant eDelivery solution.
eDelivery AS4 common profile and four corner topology
CEF is an EU fund for Pan European infrastructure investment. The fund recommends the use of the AS4 messaging protocol for the secure electronic exchange of documents between public entities, businesses and citizens.
CEF eDelivery is based on a distributed model called the “four-corner model.” In this model, the back-end systems of the users don’t exchange data directly with each other but do this through Access Points. These Access Points are conformant to the same technical specifications and therefore capable of communicating with each other, ensuring interoperability.
CEF eDelivery project
The aim of the project was to upgrade the existing eDelivery solutions of Pagero and Document Centric Solutions (DCS) from the AS2 to AS4 profile to comply with the requirements set in the eIDAS (electronic Identification, Authentication and trust Services). Additionally, the move was made to promote the cross-border exchange of electronic documents in Ireland and Sweden.
The project consisted of The Institute of IT, Sligo, who acted as project coordinator of the consortium, which was composed of Pagero, Document Centric Solutions (DCS) and Tubbercurry Software. The project partners identified and successfully overcame several technical issues with the AS4 open-source implementations available in the market for both Java and .Net environments.
By late September 2019, both Pagero and Document Centric Solutions had successfully implemented the CEF eDelivery specifications, supporting the four-corner model and dynamic discovery functionality in their existing solutions.
