In the Gaia-X project, the foundations are being laid for the development of a interconnected, open data infrastructure based on European values. From the networking of decentralized infrastructure and data services, a data infrastructure is to be created that will be merged into a homogeneous, user-friendly system in which data can be made available and shared in a secure and trustworthy manner.

For the start of a concrete federated Gaia-X operation, the central Gaia-X Federation Services (GXFS) are needed to establish Gaia-X ecosystems on top of it and to enable the coordinated provisioning of infrastructure services, application services, interconnection services and data services.

As part of this initiative, the first four federation services Identity & Trust, Federated Catalogue, Sovereign Data Exchange, and Compliance, as well as an integration layer (Integration & Portal), were implemented as part of a first public tender in 2021. Building on this, further extensions/adaptations to the first services were specified at the beginning of 2023 and are now the subject of this second tender phase.

This tender covers the functionalities of the already developed Trust Services API. The aim of the “Trust Services API Extension 1” is to ensure a consistent level of trust between Gaia-X participants and components. The Trust Services API can be used by all components. The creation and validation of digital signatures plays a particularly important role here. The product scope includes signing and verifying of necessary data, enabling policy driven trust, ensuring trust-chains between participants and validating eIDAS compliant signatures.

The scope also includes necessary tools (e.g., Command Line Scripts) to operate and maintain the created software components in an enterprise environment with focus on high-availability, security and monitoring and logging based on common standards.

The software to be created will already be published during development and after successful acceptance under the open-source license Apache Version 2.0, January 2004 (http://www.apache.org/licenses/).

For further participation and the processing of the documents, it should be noted that the implementation team must be complete as soon as the order is placed so as to be able to provide the services on time and with the required quality.

Further details can be found in the service description.
