Uniting data silos to improve the overall value chain

Open Standards & Interoperability plus interface icon

The platform is able to support emerging open standards so that it can communicate with REST, AMQP, MQTT, and CoAP devices. The events, data and information that the platform provides will use open standards (REST, JSON, SOAP, XML). Users, such as animal farms and labs, may have existing infrastructures with which the platform will integrate.

The platform conforms to security-by-design principles, including different levels of security and ensures that authentication, authorisation, and accounting is implemented through the platform. The platform also provides data provenance, so that it allows for auditing of data access and update on secured data and protects and isolate parts from vulnerabilities while managing log records.

The platform conforms to privacy-by-design principles that implements privacy rules as stated by the European Union. Any personal data on the platform is required to have a signed consent by the relevant parties covering its intended use. System architecture prevents the possibility of creating central surveillance on users or groups of users.
