AS2 (Applicability Statement 2)


AS2 (Applicability Statement 2) is a specification for EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) between organizations using HTTP or HTTPS to transmit data over the Internet. The AS2 standard allows businesses to use a common, single communications solution for added security and elimination of complexities and costs involved when different businesses in a network use different transfer protocols. Security is achieved by using digital certificates and encryption.

AutoMate's AS2 activities allow users to automate EDI/AS2 related operations such as creating and sending messages, decoding messages and verifying Receipts.
