The Standards Watch of StandICT.eu monitors the status of ICT standards at international level, starting from the five priority areas of the Digital Single Market: 5G communications,cloud computing,cybersecurity,data technology, and IoT – Internet of Things.
In particular, special attention is given to the rapidly evolving ICT topics of: Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, IoT.
Gradually, the Standards Watch will be expanded to other ICT domains and topics, with the aim of better identifying gaps, needs & opportunities and consequently stimulating European Experts to pursue the openings granted by the StandICT.eu initiative.
The primary focus of the I/O Traces, Tools, and Analysis (IOTTA) TWG is to create a worldwide repository for storage-related I/O trace collection and analysis tools, application workloads, I/O traces, and best practices around such topics. That repository is located at http://iotta.snia.org
The Computational Storage TWG was created for the purpose of establishing architectures and software for storage, disk, and solid state device based functionalities that allow them to be integrated with Computation in its many forms.
The Cloud Storage TWG acts as the primary technical entity for the SNIA to identify, develop, and coordinate systems standards for Cloud Storage. This group aims to produce a comprehensive set of specifications and drives consistency of interface standards and messages across the various Cloud Storage related efforts.
The OASIS PKCS 11 Technical Committee develops enhancements to improve the PKCS #11 standard for ease of use in code libraries, open source applications, wrappers, and enterprise/COTS products: implementation guidelines, usage tutorials, test scenarios and test suites, interoperability testing, coordination of functional testing, devel
The OSLC PROMCODE TC defines technical elements and guidelines for project management of Software Supply Chains. The OSLC PROMCODE TC will examine the work done by the PROMCODE consortium on exchanging project management information, and will modify/extend the work so that it fits the needs of the global community.
The OSLC PROMCODE TC will work to:
The OpenDocument Format (ODF) is an open XML-based document file format for office applications to be used for documents containing text, spreadsheets, charts, and graphical elements. The file format makes transformations to other formats simple by leveraging and reusing existing standards wherever possible.
The OASIS OData TC works to simplify the querying and sharing of data across disparate applications and multiple stakeholders for re-use in the enterprise, Cloud, and mobile devices. A REST-based protocol, OData builds on HTTP and JSON using URIs to address and access data feed resources.
Multicast over 5G (and over NR in particular) offer the opportunity to address limitations of the current Mission Critical systems that use eMBMS over LTE and provide some significant optimisation of the Mission Critical systems, in terms of functionality, availability and performance.
CoRE provides a framework for resource-oriented applications intended to run on constrained IP networks. Such networks have limited packet sizes, may exhibit a high degree of packet loss, and may have a substantial number of devices that may be powered off at any point in time but periodically "wake up" for brief periods of time.
A major factor limiting the interoperability of telepresence systems is the lack of a standardised way to describe and negotiate the use of the multiple streams of audio and video comprising the media flows.
Using existing work done by the development communities of Matroska, FFV1, and FLAC, the IETF Working Group on Codec for LossLess Archiving and Realtime Transmission (CELLAR) will formalise specifications for these open and lossless formats.
The OpenC2 TC was chartered to draft documents, specifications, lexicons or other artifacts to fulfill the needs of cyber security command and control in a standardized manner. The Technical Committee will leverage pre-existing standards to the greatest extent practical, identifying gaps pertaining to the command and control of technologies that provide or support cyber defenses.
The significant growth in content delivered over IP networks, existing CDN providers are scaling up their infrastructure and many Network Service Providers and Enterprise Service Providers are deploying their own CDNs.
Interception techniques need to become more effective and fail-safe as endpoints become inherently more secure. The IETF Captive Portal Interaction (CAPPORT) Working Group will define secure mechanisms and protocols to:
OAXAL represents a method to exploit technical documentation assets by extending the usefulness of core XML-related standards in a comprehensive, open architecture. OAXAL defines a complete, automated package from authoring through translation, providing authors with a systematic way to identify, store, and reuse existing sentences.
The OASIS Litigant Portal (LP) Technical Committee is chartered to produce specifications for data interoperation between Litigant Portal Modules. The technical specifications are collectively referred to as the Litigant Portal Exchange (LPX) Specifications. Portal modules are designed to provide assististance to self-represented litigants.
The IETF Binary Floor Control Protocol Bis (BFCPBIS) working group is chartered to specify a revision of BFCP (RFC 4582) to support both TCP and UDP as transports.
The OASIS Electronic Court Filing TC will develop specifications for the use of XML to create legal documents and to transmit legal documents from an attorney, party or self-represented litigant to a court, from a court to an attorney, party or self-represented litigant or to another court, and from an attorney or other user to another attorney or other user of legal documents.
