The Transport System “FASTI” is designed for the secure exchange of information among the system’s clients, the organization of electronic document workflow based on the standards adopted within the system, or the creation of a user’s own electronic document workflow system.
The “FASTI” system is designed to address the following tasks:
The system is open according to the specifications of communication and cryptographic software: it has a software interface (API) for user applications.
The system uses a domain architecture, star topology. All system components are subjects of secure information exchange and clients of the PKI certification center represented by user nodes.
Primary key information is created and distributed centrally by the Certification Authority NPK. Secret key information is derived from the primary key information on user computers. Operational distribution of open key information in the system is carried out by special services of the Certification Authority NPK, ensuring the storage, verification, and distribution of client certificates containing open key information and servicing the transport nodes of the system during their operation. All system components provide local interactive input and secure storage of secret keys in the computer’s RAM during their operation. The system ensures the integrity, cryptographic protection, and guaranteed delivery of information for system clients.
To use the “FASTI” system on a user’s personal computer, the following is required:
The unit of information transported in the system is a file. All transported files in the system are represented by two types:
To implement mechanisms for guaranteed information delivery, each transported file in the system is assigned a unique transport reference number throughout the system’s existence – a transport reference. The addressing and routing system in “FASTI” is built based on the principles of DNS/IP using DNS protocol services.
— 20 MB is required for program installation.
— Ensure free hard disk space, considering the volume of information transmitted to “VIDo5” software.
