Two Main Chalenges
• Simplify message transport
• Improve the way we are dealing with
semantics
…Also
– Must be done in a way that allows easy access to
SME’s…

Integration Hubs and VAN’s …
One Hub
Another Hub

More than a Hub
Single Point
Of Access
• Globally Addressable
• Secure
• Independent from Semantics or Applications
• Independent from Vendor or Provider
• Simple and Easy to Use

Still need to resolve:

Overall challenge
Why should I trust?
Trust
Sender
Who can I reach?
Where can I send my
document?
How do I transport my document?
Registry
Receiver
How do I advertise
my capabilities?

Busdox – Business Document Interchange
Preparing the e-freight Access Point Architecture
•
Service Metadata Locator (SML):
•
•
•
The SML is the key component of enabling the register for exchange of business
documents.
ROOT PKI (Circle of trust)
•
The ROOT PKI is used to create the core circle of trust between AP’s, SMP’s and SML.
•
Together with the usage of SAML Sender Vouches assertion tokens this create a flexible –
yet trustworthy – 4-corner model for realising the foundation of electronic documents
exchange
The BusDox specifications
•
Is now target of a OASIS technical committee working on the standardization of the
current specification

Simple, Easy to Use and… little
investment requirements
• Development and Integration cannot not be
mandatory, SME’s must be able to use off-theshelf compatible apps
• Guidance and Support for legacy system
integration must be a part of the overall
architecture, even if this interface will be the
last to be developed

Semantics
• Profiles define na actor comunicaion capability.
• Profiles represent a process not a message, in
processes a conversation or protocol envolving a set
of messages is clearly defined
• All profiles have a core imutable version, ensuring
minimum compatability, but can be extended using
conbinations ofspecific modules for specific
scenarios
• THERE ARE NO “IMPLEMENTATION GUIDES”

E-freight service providers will have to be able to interconnect, building a global network. This is a similar
model to the one supporting e-mail today!

Access Points
E-freight Access Points
E-freight
Compatible solutions (e.g.
NSW, authorities, GDS,
Shipping Portals)
• Single connections point for applications, able to
relay information to other access points.
EAP
• Can be implemented in-house if data security or
privacy is a concern. This is a decision
comparable to use an external e-mail provider or
implement the server in-house.

Stores And Apps
Stores and Apps
Make e-freight compatible
applications available to actors.
E-freight
Compatible solutions (e.g.
NSW, authorities, GDS,
Shipping Portals)
• Typically , small and off-the-shelf
applications serving specific functions
and market requirements
• Readily available applications,
supporting e-Freight profiles

Compatible Solutions
E-freight compatible solutions
Existing, in-house or tailored
solutions for actors participating in efreight enabled transport chains
E-freight
Compatible solutions (e.g.
NSW, authorities, GDS,
Shipping Portals)
• Typically these will be large scale systems design to
meet specific needs of a given actor or customized
solutions
• These will use the e-freight framework and services
by connecting to a E-Freight provider, exposing
support for a given number of profiles
• Examples are: Single windows, large transport
provider systems, authorities, existing and legacy
systems, typically , small and
off-the-shelf
applications serving specific functions and market
requirements
