ZorgTTP ‘DRM’ (Doel- en Receive Module) software in DRE workspace

ZorgTTP ‘DRM’ (Doel- en Receive Module) software in DRE workspace

Following a use case from Acute Zorgregio Oost (AZO), anDREa, AZO and ZorgTTP collaborated on making ZorgTTP software available in a workspace. We would like to thank AZO and ZorgTTP sincerely for making this solution and help item available.

ZorgTTP is a Dutch Trusted Third Party that facilitates the safe transfer of data between two or more parties with pseudonymization and/or encryption of privacy-sensitive data. For the pseudonymization and transfer of data, ZorgTTP provides tailored software. The party that delivers data, installs software (‘Privacy- en Verzendmodule’ or ‘PVM’) to pseudonymize and transfer their data to ZorgTTP. ZorgTTP further pseudonymizes the data and transfers them to the receiving party. The receiving party has to install software (‘Doel- en Receive Module’ or ‘DRM’) to receive and download the pseudonymized data, for example directly in a DRE workspace.
Please, be aware that ZorgTTP software is not free of charge. The costs depend on several factors. More information on ZorgTTP, their services and contact details can be found on https://www.zorgttp.nl.
Described below are the steps required to install and work with the ZorgTTP ‘Doel en Receive Module’ (DRM) software in your DRE workspace.

Only a workspace Owner can install the software and open up internet ports which are necessary to install and use the DRM.
  1. ZorgTTP will provide the DRM software through a personalized download link, which you will receive by email. To open the link, use the password ZorgTTP has sent to you by SMS. You can now download the DRM software (zip file), including a manual how to install the DRM.
  2. Upload the DRM software (zip file) to your workspace. See Data Upload on how to upload files to your workspace.
  3. Go to the External Access tab in your workspace. You’ll need to open up internet ports to the ZorgTTP server, as well as to DigiCert and QuoVadis. At this moment, only static IP addresses can be whitelisted. Fortunately, the ZorgTTP server has a static IP address: see below. See Opening up ports on how to open up internet ports. Open up the port to the ZorgTTP server.

    Access to DigiCert

    Access to QuoVadis

  4. DigiCert and QuoVadis don't have static IP addresses, in addition anDREa will have to tweak the DNS configuration. Please create a ticket for anDREa with the mention of ZorgTTP setup and DigiCert/QuoVadis IP addresses.
  5. Start the Virtual Machine of your workspace and navigate to the File Explorer. Under This PC, navigate to the data/Z-drive. You will find your uploaded DRM software zip file in a timestamped folder in the Inbox. Copy the zip file to the C:\drive of your Virtual Machine.
  6. Install the DRM software by following the steps in the manual supplied by ZorgTTP. In this process, you are required to create a ‘route certificate’, specific to your project. If at any time the installation of the software or the creation of the route certificate fails, this is probably due to opened up ports for DigiCert and/or QuoVadis. Create a ticket for anDREa with the mention of ZorgTTP/DigiCert/QuoVadis IP addresses.
  7. After successfully installing the DRM and creating a route certificate, notify ZorgTTP. They will send a test file to the DRM, to confirm if the DRM is working properly. Follow the steps in the DRM manual to import and to check the test file.
