EDIINT AS1, AS2, and AS3
 


   EDIINT

What is EDIINT? Short for Electronic Data Interchange-Internet Integration, EDIINT is a set of protocols for conducting highly structured inter-organization exchanges.

EDIINT has become one of the most popular ways to communicate data over the internet. Major retailers are making AS2 communication a requirement. AS3 is not far behind. What are these methods of communication over the internet and how can you meet your trading partner mandates without disrupting your business process? The answer is clear, continue to communicate in the method that best meets your business requirements and let Kleinschmidt meet your business partner requirements by sending and receiving data in the various EDIINTprotocols.

   AS1

AS1 (Applicability Statement 1) is a specification for Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) communication between businesses using e-mail protocols. The specification was created by EDI over the Internet (EDIINT), a working group of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) for developing secure and reliable business communication standards.

The AS1 standard provides S/MIME (Secure Multi-Purpose Internet Mail Extensions) and uses Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) to transmit data using e-mail. Security, authentication, message integrity, and privacy are assured by the use of encryption and digital signatures. Another important feature, non repudiation, makes it impossible for the intended recipient of a message to deny having received it.

   AS2

AS2 (Applicability Statement 2) is a specification for Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between businesses using the Internet's Web page protocol, the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). The specification is an extension of the earlier version, Applicability Statement 1 (AS1). It was created by EDI over the Internet (EDIINT), a working group of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) that develops secure and reliable business communications standards.

The AS2 standard provides Secure Multi-Purpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME) and uses HTTP or a more secure version, HTTPS, to transmit data over the Internet. AS1 uses a slower protocol, SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol). The use of HTTP or HTTPS allows communication in real-time rather than through e-mail delivery. Security, authentication, message integrity, and privacy are assured by the use of encryption and digital signatures. Another important feature, non repudiation, makes it impossible for the intended recipient of a message to deny having received it.

   AS3

AS3 (Applicability Statement 3) is a specification for Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between businesses using the File Transfer Protocol (FTP). The specification is an extension of the earlier version, Applicability Statement 2 (AS2). Also created by EDI over the Internet (EDIINT), a working group of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) that develops secure and reliable business communication standards.

The AS3 standard provides a structured business data exchange securely using the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) for XML, Binary, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI - ANSI X12 or UN/EDIFACT), or other data used for business-to-business data interchange for which MIME packaging can be accomplished using standard MIME content-types. Authentication and data confidentiality are obtained by using Cryptographic Message Syntax (S/MIME) security body parts. Authenticated acknowledgements employ multipart/signed replies to the original message.
