iSHARE Authorization Registry

iSHARE is a collaborative effort to improve conditions for data-sharing for organisations involved in the logistics sector. The functional scope of the iSHARE Scheme focuses on topics of identification, authentication and authorization.

iSHARE Authorization Registry

The Authorization Registry:

  • Manages records of Delegation and Authorization of Entitled Party (role) and/or Service Consumer (role);
  • Checks on the basis of the registered permission(s) whether a Human Service Consumer (role) or Machine Service Consumer (role) is authorized to take delivery of the requested service, and;
  • Confirms the established powers towards the Service Provider (role).

Within the iSHARE Scheme, the term Authorization Registry always refers to an external Authorization Registry (not part of the Service Provider (role) or Entitled Party (role)).

The Authorization Registry is a role for which iSHARE Certification (iSHARE) is REQUIRED.
