Security and Trust

Security and integrity of the business transactions through the PEPPOL Transport Infrastructure relies on using a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) to establish a trusted network.

When Access Point or SMP providers sign the PEPPOL Transport Infrastructure Agreements they will be provided with a PEPPOL Digital Certificate. This certificate contains the key information for validating all communications on the PEPPOL network. The certificate is valid as long as the Transport Infrastructure Agreement is valid and can be revoked if service providers are in breach of the Agreement. This ensures only known and trusted providers provide services on the Transport Infrastructure.
