Appendix D. AS2 and AS3 Services

AS2 and AS3 are a security standard defined by the Working Group of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) that allows EDIFACT, X12 and XML-based business transactions to move securely over the Internet.

The standard underlines the critical elements of data privacy, data authentication and non-repudiation of origin and receipt, required to ensure the integrity of data communications via the Internet.

The business benefits of AS2 and AS3 interoperability include boosting efficiency and lowering the cost for transmitting critical business data.

LANSA's AS2 and AS3 facility consists of these services:
