Secure file transfer for EDI/B2B

Files transferred between companies and their trading partners contain crucial business information. For a business that will be transferring EDI files using Internet protocols, maintaining the security of those data payloads is as important as the data itself.

The Applicability Statement 2, or AS2, protocol is used for precisely this purpose. It allows for B2B messages to be encrypted and signed, while using ubiquitous network protocols, like HTTP or HTTPS, to send and receive the messages.

AS2 has been identified as the standard in B2B communication by the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN), but there are some features that would make the protocol even more useful. Plus, typical configuration of file transfers requires the assistance of IT or EDI analysts and extended testing between a company and their trading partners.
