Trust building Data Exchange technology

Ensuring the highest trust mechanisms for secure Data Exchange solutions.

Trust is an essential pillar of Data Exchange to build flourishing Data Ecosystems bringing together organizations from different horizons. With Dawex Data Exchange technology, organizations can exchange and share data products in full confidence, keeping control over who accesses the data, for which purpose and under which terms & conditions.

Trusted identities

  • With state-of-the-art, secure onboarding and vetting processes, the orchestrator of the Data Marketplace or Data Hub can keep control over who has access to the data exchange ecosystem, from organizations down to individuals. Accesses and authorization can be revoked anytime through the administration console.
  • The Dawex solution Data Exchange Platform supports identity federation and SSO for authentication & authorization via OpenID Connect.
  • The Data Exchange Platform solution can interoperate with solutions providing Self Sovereign Identities, making use of Decentralized Identifiers (DID), and connect with Identity Wallets providing verifiable credentials for natural and legal persons.


Data product visibility and access right management

Data Products visibility and access rights can be controlled precisely through several functionalities of the Data Exchange Platform:

  • Extensive data product visibility settings are at the disposal of the data provider. Data product offerings can be exposed privately to selected organizations and individuals, exposed to all participants of the platform and even, if the data provider chooses, exposed publicly for marketing purposes to non-platform participants. Private sub-groups can be defined to expose and exchange data between participants on a selected topic.
  • Group, role and user access permissions settings are supported by MFA (Multi Factor Authentication) through One-Time-Passwords (OTPs) and Role Based Access Control (RBAC).
  • Data privacy-by-design which means that all data stored on the platform is encrypted, and participants or the orchestrator can only read the metadata associated and available in the data catalog.


Data licensing and consent management

Depending on the data ecosystem and on the nature of the data being exchanged, many different data licensing conditions and degrees of consent are required. To provide flexibility, a comprehensive set of functionalities are available on the Data Exchange Platform to verify consent and ensure the right terms & conditions are applied, such as:

  • Preset licenses, reusable and configurable, allow the data provider to precisely define terms and conditions of use for public/private, open/commercial, or free/paid data exchanges. 
  • Personal data is managed in compliance with GDPR and non-European personal data regulations such as CCPA and APPI or others. Specific workflows are provided to declare, manage and mask such data all along the transaction process.
  • An API connection to Consent Managers systems is provided, ensuring for each data request that the data acquirer benefits from the consent to access and use the data product.
  • Dawex is implementing “compliance as code” through Open Digital Right Langage (ODRL) to describe policies in a "machine-readable" way, and then automate what is possible to constrain at the moment of the acquisition.



The Data Exchange Platform solution from Dawex provides a wide range of tools for data providers to trace data transactions and the accesses to data products, thus reinforcing the level of trust delivered by the solution.

Through the administration console, the orchestrator can monitor activities and perform deep-dive audits on past activities. Data privacy is fully preserved as the orchestrator has never access to the data itself.

Participants can navigate through data offerings and explore metadata associated with each data product. Data providers can monitor and trace accesses relative to their own data products.


Ensure compliance to latest data regulations

Dawex closely follows the evolution of data regulations and participates in the discussions in the building of personal and non-personal data regulations. From this expertise, Dawex ensures that its Data Exchange technology integrates regulatory requirements, providing its customers a comprehensive set of features to be compliant with the latest data regulations requirements.
