AS2 (Applicability Statement 2) is a http based protocol to transmit messages (especially EDI messages) safely, cheaply and quickly. In the last 20 years AS2 has become the most widely used protocol for EDI in many industries, such as the retail and the consumer goods industry.
To establish an AS2 connection you need two computers, a server and a client. Both connect to the Internet via a point-to-point connection. In order to transmit the desired data, AS2 creates an ‘envelope’ that enables secure transmission via the Internet using digital certificates and encryption.
MDN (Message Disposition Notification) is an electronic acknowledgement of reception that is sent to the sender via AS2 after an electronic message has been sent. This acknowledgement of reception confirms that the message has been transmitted completely. The MDN mainly checks two things:
The process of establishing an AS2 MDN connection is as follows:
AS2 certificates are important because they enable secure data exchange and meet certain security standards. You can generate and sign your certificates yourself using software of your choice, or use certificates issued and verified by a trusted certification authority. These are exchanged in advance with the partner.
However, self-signed certificates can cause security warnings and thus disrupt the exchange of EDI messages.
SEEBURGER offers a solution to address the problem of expired certificates and the efficient handling of multiple connections:B2B routing is a communication service and takes over the delivery of all EDI messages from/to your B2B partners.
The resulting advantages are:
The connection to the SEEBURGER Cloud is also possible via one single AS2 connection.
GLN (Global Location Number) is a 13-digit number that uniquely identifies a company. Nowadays more and more (mostly larger companies) rely on the use of GLN numbers to prevent confusion between companies. The GLN numbers are assigned by GS1, a central government agency, which ensures that no GLN number is assigned twice and thus avoids confusion.
We appreciate your interest in SEEBURGER.
