4.1.4 - The repository shall have mechanisms to appropriately verify the identity of the Producer of all materials.
SP allows only Providers known to the repository to deposit digital objects. SP manages Providers through the configuration of loader scripts specific to each Provider and a contract agreed upon by both parties.
Please see an example of a Provider Agreement for more information. In addition, the Pull Script Diagram, available below, contains information about the relationship between SP and Providers during the ingest process.
