SeCo - General

In 2008, the Luxembourg social security (CCSS) launched the Seculine solution which allows any employer or fiduciary to securely communicate information with them throught internet.

The application used to transfert the data is SOFiE Business, or SOFiE Seculine, developped by Worldline (previously known as Cetrel and Six Payments Services).

U IT supports SOFiE customers since 2010 and works in close contact with Worldline, the CCSS, and many actors of the domain surrounding Seculine. Based on our experience and in-depth knowledge of the actual solution, we developped a first tool in 2015 named SSL (SOFiE Seculine Launcher). In 2019, we started the development of SeCo which was released mid-2021.

The main goal of SeCo is to help any Seculine participant to gain time by automating SOFiE, its main aspects are :

  • SOFiE is automated : users do not have anymore to connect to or use SOFiE manually
  • All files are transmitted or received within a few minutes
  • Email alert on SOFiE error/success
  • SeCo provides users & management with a panel to monitor or search on files transferred
  • IT departments centralize the support of the solution to one server, no more SOFiE related intervention
  • U IT support on SeCo and SOFiE is included on top of Worldline SOFiE support

For its first version v1.0, SeCo is proposed in 2 formats :

  • SeCo WEB - For any type of customer, adapted for fiduciaries or company with 2+ SOFiE users
  • SeCo Desktop - For single users, can be adapted for 2 or 3 users but not recommended

The cost of SeCo is mininal and varies upon the number of declared employees. Further cost diminution remains possible for small entities who use SOFiE only a few times a month. Our aim is/was to adapt the SeCo tarif in order to benefit, in term ot time earned, to all SOFiE Seculine participants.

SeCo WEB

SeCo WEB is the newest version of SeCo, released during 3rd quarter 2021.

For users SeCo is a WEB application used to verify and monitor the file exchanges with the CCSS. They do not have (anymore) to care about sending or receiving the Seculine files. Any member of the management can also have access to SeCo to monitor the activities.

For the IT, SeCo WEB is a server-client type application using web services, it's fully administered and operated internally. SeCo uses certificate (https) for user's authentication and operate 100% "offline" (no external/internet access).

  • A secured user authentication (https)
  • A search panel allowing to list all the transfers activities, open files, logs
