Cooperation and smooth collaboration within and between governmental authorities on federal, state and municipal level are a daily necessity for public organisations. However, shared processing of electronic classified documents was previously not possible without media disruption, because document registration only addressed the traditionally paper-based classified document world. Classified documents could be generated electronically but - due to the lack of accredited digital registry services for such documents - could only be received as print-outs in order to be integrated into the inventory of the registry. In addition, there was a lack of a consistently reliable and verifiable implementation of the “need to know” principle when processing classified information. Despite advanced digitalisation, secure digital work spaces have so far been lacking and still required the classical, i.e. paper-based approach.
This is where the SINA Workflow comes into play: Thanks to it’s highly secure, cryptographic architecture, there now exists a flexible cooperation platform for the policy-compliant collaboration on classified documents. As a result, authorities can now use customised trustworthy digital work spaces that allow creating, distributing, storing and exchanging of classified documents up to GEHEIM/SECRET. This paves the way for public administrations to develop and implement internal concepts for a policy-compliant information distribution on a verifiable security level – guaranteed without media disruption.
