The International Data Spaces Association is an international peer-to-peer network that is dedicated to providing a trustworthy architecture for the data economy to ease the global exchange of data between data providers and data users. The network allows data providers stay in control of their data-sovereignty by setting restrictions and defining conditions for the use of the data, upon request even audit-proof.
The decision to include iSHARE data-sharing agreements into the IDS architecture allows IDSA to accelerate the deployment of a secure infrastructure. TNO is the IDS Hub in the Netherlands supporting sectors and organizations in building data-sharing ecosystems.
Both iSHARE and IDSA enable a network of trusted data, that is built on the following principles:
• Decentralized architecture: data is kept at the source
• Protection of trust: uniform onboarding requirements
• Sovereignty of data and services: data owners are in control
• Openness: anyone can join
• Secure data exchange: protecting data assets
• Governance collaborative rules: community in charge
• Scaling effects on network: adoption creates value for all
• Network of platforms and services: inclusive ecosystem
• Data providers can participate in the value of data
