Components

Core architecture

 

 

UXP Monitoring server receives monitoring information from the security servers and makes it available to central system administrators.

UXP Registry maintains information about approved certificate authorities, approved trust services, UXP members and security servers. This information is distributed to the security servers.

UXP Security Server acts as a gateway between the organisation’s information system and the UXP infrastructure. Security server relays request and response messages while adding a protective layer. All the messages are passed through cryptographically secure channel. Additionally, the messages are digitally signed and time-stamped to ensure long-term proof value of the transactions.

Security Servers sign all messages they send to other data providers in UXP.

Security Servers verify all messages they receive from other data providers in UXP.  Security Servers log all query responses to the secure log.

 

Additional Components

UXP Connector can be installed at an organisation to implement UXP services based on SQL databases. UXP Connector offers a fast, easy way to create UXP-compatible web-services without any programming.

UXP Portal is a web-based application which allows UXP service discovery through UXP platform and creates dynamic query/input forms for service consuming. The portal component can be set up to allow citizens to access governmental e-services. The portal supports different authentication means, based on the available authentication method. Citizens can use computers and mobile devices to access and use these services.

UXP Certificate Authority (CA) creates certificates that prove ownership of public keys. UXP relies on digital signatures and certificates for carrying out its duties. It can use the services of existing Certification Authorities (CAs)s to get certificates for security servers and organisations. This is a great way to speed up UXP deployment and reuse the investment that’s already been made in CA. But if a suitable CA is not present, UXP also has a CA component that can be deployed and used to issue certificates, as necessary.

UXP Time-Stamping Service issues time stamps that ensure long-term validity of the digital signatures created in the UXP system.
