2. Negotiate a Connection Scheme


If your company plans to submit data to ACDPDP via SITA (Type B protocol, UN/EDIFACT message format) or via the ACDPDP Internet site bypass this step.


3. Test the Operational Readiness of Your Information System for Use with ACDPDP


If your company is planning to utilize a commonly used DCS to transmit data to ACDPDP, we can choose to skip the data transmission test. We have already tested connectivity and compatibility between several widely known DSCs and ACDPDP.


Test consists of transmission of sample messages containing passenger data from your system to a test version of ACDPDP and checks for correct formation of data you submit. Technical information for test connection, including addresses and login credentials, will be provided by our technical support.


If you submit data in CSV format it is possible to send both passengers and crew data in one file, and not use separate ones.


You will have a limited timeframe for the test transmission (five working days).


After the test we will provide you with a list of errors in your test data (or lack thereof).


4. Choose or Create a Secure Channel for Data Submission


Option 1. Connection through SITA (for airlines) This option is available to those transport operators who are connected to the SITA communications network, or can obtain such a connection. In this case creation of a secure channel to ACDPDP gateway for data transmission is not required.


Option 2. VPN connection through Internet. In this case You’ll install and configure Juniper Pulse software or configure IPsec VPN connection in accordance with the chosen connection scheme. After signing the agreement we will provide you with necessary packages for IPsec VPN connection.


Option 3. SSL connection to ACDPDP portal via Internet This option is for interactive (manual) data input. With it, you can use any standard web browser (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Opera etc.) to connect to the ACDPDP portal via SSL, and proceed from there.


When the test is successful, and a secure channel is created or chosen, you will get your copy of the Application (sealed & signed by our Director General), along with all the settings necessary to connect to the live ACDPDP gateway/portal.


With this, you can begin transmitting the actual personal data on your passengers to ACDPDP.
