Minnie White

Description

Can a definition of the following codes be provided?

AK901 - Functional Group Ack Code:
M - Rejected, Message Authentication Code (MAC) Failed
W - Rejected, Assurance Failed Validity Tests

Response

The referenced codes are used with the security mechanisms described in X12.58.
Code “M” is conveyed by the receiver when a computed MAC does not match the MAC sent by the sender.
Code “W” is conveyed when any of the various assurance tests fail.

FURTHER DISCUSSION:
If the X12.58 security mechanisms are not being used by trading partners, the cited code values should never occur.
