Introduction to B2B Integration using AS2

What is B2B integration? Business-to-business (B2B) integration is the automation of business processes and communication between two or more organizations. It allows them to trade more effectively with their customers, suppliers, vendors and business partners by automating key business processes using B2B based data exchange including EDI. Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is a standard means of exchanging data between companies so that they can transact business electronically.

As part of the B2B Data exchange customers and their partners mutually agree on a:

· Document format like X12, UN/EDIFACT

· Transport protocol like AS2, sFTP

AS2 is a key transport protocol that is very popular worldwide used for B2B data exchange. It is a specification for Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between organizations using the internet. AS2 uses Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME), which secures data with authentication, nonrepudiation and encryption. The transportation protocol for this specification is HTTP and HTTPS for real-time communication. S/MIME secures data with authentication, message integrity and nonrepudiation.
