Technology CEP process

La Poste’s Electronic Stamp Services are available in ASP mode. Installation requires no specific hardware.

The service works by way of an exchange between the client application and a web service platform, accessible through the Internet or a leased line.

Via the HTTPS protocol, the exchanges are confidential and certified. The protected liaison requires X509 certificates for both the client and the server.

These exchanges are made using SOAP XML queries. The proposed services conform to the Digital Postmark S43 standard defined by the Universal Postal Union. They comply with access interfaces to “reliable electronic services” that have standardized throughout the international postal community.
