Safe Data Use via Data Apps#
The Mobility Data Space is established across the networked connectors, meaning that it is not a centralized platform but rather an expandable network of decentralized players. Prior to being transferred to the target connector, the data to be provided is extended by a set of rules, the so-called »usage policy«. It remains in the target connector and is secure against direct access by the data user. If data users want to work with the data, e. g., for purposes of data analysis or fusion, they must access it within the connector via so-called »data apps«.
These apps are capable of integrating further data, e. g., from user databases that are run outside of the connector. A usage control layer within the connector guarantees compliance with the rules specified by the data app, with the result that only aggregated results will leave the connector.
All steps taken during data use and processing within the data space can be recorded. This way, data providers have complete knowledge of all activities relating to their data.
