RINA stands for Reference Implementation for a National Application. The RINA is a sample application put out by the EU to develop organisation-specific applications that receive and transmit messages. We supply a string of services around the RINA, such as:

  • Configuration of a RINA-stack, sign-up of the RINA to a secure network
  • Performing upgrades and delivering an operational RINA
  • Periodic retrieval of the repository from the Access Point (AP)
  • Monitoring disk, CPU and services, regular debugging, cleaning up logfiles
  • Monitoring data interchanges via the RINA and intervening where this occurs in a non-compliant manner
