Integrity and Confidentiality

The requirement for Integrity and Confidentiality is two-fold:

A standards based Implementation is possible leveraging WS-Security standards from OASIS. This approach supports to associate the protection towards integrity and confidentiality to the geodata itself; this specific to the use case and the overall architecture. Any network based protection mechanisms can be added. However the approach is independent from the underlying network security features and can therefore be used without administrative privileges for the network.
