Public Reviews underway for MQTT, VIRTIO, KMIPCloudAuthZ

Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) 3.1.1 provides a Client Server publish/subscribe messaging transport protocol ideal for use in Machine to Machine (M2M) and Internet Of Things (IoT) contexts where a small code footprint is required and/or network bandwidth is at a premium. This public review ends 6 May.

MQTT and the NIST Cybersecurity Framework 1.0 provides guidance for organizations wishing to deploy MQTT in a way consistent with the US NIST Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure cybersecurity. This public review ends 21 May.

Virtual I/O Device (VIRTIO) 1.0 allows virtual environments and guests to have a straightforward, efficient, standard and extensible mechanism for virtual devices, rather than boutique per-environment or per-OS mechanisms. This public review ends 28 Apr.
Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) 1.2 enables communication between encryption systems and a broad range of new and legacy enterprise applications, including email, databases, and storage devices. This public review ends 6 May. 

Cloud Authorization Use Cases (CloudAuthZ) 1.0 develops enhanced models for managing authorizations and entitlements in SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS contexts and enables contextual attributes and contextual entitlements sets to be delivered to Policy Enforcement Points in real time. This public review ends 26 Apr.

European Identity & Cloud Conference to feature OASIS Privacy Workshop

Experts from the PMRM and PbD-SE TCs will be featured presenters at the upcoming European Identity & Cloud Conference on 13 May in Munich.  The workshop is designed to help business owners, software developers, and policy makers understand how to move from the abstract Privacy-by-Design (PbD) principles toward implementation and conformance assessment.  By designing privacy into our smart systems, improved functionality can be achieved,  more effective risk management and greater public awareness and confidence. The workshop is complimentary and is open to all conference attendees.
