Eclipse Dataspace Connector provides a connector framework for sovereign, inter-organizational data exchange. The framework contains modules for performing data query, data exchange, policy enforcement, monitoring, and auditing. Specifically, it integrates with existing identity, data catalogue, and transfer technologies to provide compliance, policy, and control capabilities across organizations.
As such, the framework will be fully extensible and architected to integrate with other technology solutions in the following areas:
- Data transfer wire protocols for a variety of use cases including data streams, IoT data, and large data sets.
- Identity providers, including OAuth2-based implementations as well as distributed identity systems.
- Data storage, cataloguing, and taxonomy systems.
- Host environments from on-premise installations to multiple cloud platforms.
The connector will provide an open and publicly accessible solution for data providers and consumers, allowing them to concentrate on the use case at hand.
