Interoperability - Unified eXchange Platform (UXP)

UXP is created by the authors of the world-renowned e-governance backbone of Estonia, the X-Road, which according to the World Bank Development Report is one of the key technologies that allowed Estonia to become a truly digital society.

Unified eXchange Platform (UXP) is a technology that enables peer-to-peer data exchange over encrypted and mutually authenticated channels. It is based on a decentralised architecture where each peer has an information system that will be connected with other peers’ systems.

Seamless Data Exchange. UXP connects any amount of databases in an efficient and secure way, helping you build a network of agreements that allows controlled exchange between any members in your ecosystem.

Less is More. UXP means less paperwork, less bureaucracy, less time spent on futility. In Estonia, digital services save every citizen one work-week per year. What would you do with your week?

Affordable. UXP can be implemented into any ecosystem – be it a tiny country or a supernational association. With very low maintenance cost and marginal implementation investment, UXP is cost-effective and allows you to move ahead one step at a time.

The Unified eXchange Platform (UXP) is targeted at situations where several parties wish
to establish a standardised communication channel that provides confidentiality, strong authentication and long-term proof value of the relayed messages. The model case for this
situation is a governmental data exchange infrastructure.
