Energy Interoperation 1.0 becomes OASIS Standard

Energy Interoperation describes an information model and a communication model to enable the collaborative and transactive use of energy for exchanging dynamic price signals, reliability signals, emergency signals, load predictability, and generation information. Energy Interoperation is included in the SGIP Catalog as one of the standards most relevant for the development and deployment of a robust, interoperable, and secure Smart Grid. Congratulations to TC chairs, William Cox and David Holmberg, and to all TC participants including representatives of IBM and NIST, for this accomplishment.

MQTT TC approves documents

MQTT 3.1.1 Committee Specification is a lightweight messaging transport protocol used 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.

MQTT and the NIST Cybersecurity Framework 1.0 Committee Note provides guidance for organizations wishing to deploy MQTT in a way consistent with the NIST Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity.

Congratulations to MQTT TC chairs, Raphael Cohn and Richard Coppen (IBM), and to all TC members for accomplishing these milestones.

XACML TC approves three profiles

XACML 3.0 XML Digital Signature Profile 1.0, XACML 3.0 Hierarchical Resource Profile 1.0, and XACML 3.0 Multiple Decision Profile 1.0 all advance use of the eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML). Congratulations to TC chairs, Bill Parducci and Hal Lockhart (Oracle), and to all XACML TC members for this accomplishment.

Congratulations to Trust Elevation TC chairs, Abbie Barbir (Bank of America) and Don Thibeau (Open Identity Exchange), and to all TC members for accomplishing this milestone.

Public Reviews underway for CloudAuthZ, XLIFF, and AMQP

Cloud Authorization Use Cases 1.0 examine requirements using commonly defined cloud deployment and service models. The use cases will enable further analysis to determine if functional gaps exist in current identity management standards. The public review ends 23 Jun.

Media Type Registration Template for XLIFF 2.0 provides a standalone media type registration template for XLIFF 2.0, the standard for the interchange of localisable software and document-based objects. The public review ends 17 Jul.

Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) WebSocket Binding 1.0 defines a mechanism for tunneling an AMQP connection over a WebSocket transport. It is applicable as an approach for general firewall tunneling and for Web browser messaging scenarios. The public review ends 19 Jul.
