ITU-T addresses the Internet of Things in a specific work group


There is a new work group by ITU-T that focuses on the IoT. Some of the work items that will be addressed include:

  • Concept, vision and use cases of the Internet of Things
  • Architectural framework of the Internet of Things
  • Identification architecture for the Internet of Things
  • Requirements for IoT identifier
  • IoT Identifier format
  • Identifier resolutions for the Internet of Things
  • Directory service framework for the Internet of Things
  • Middleware architecture for the Internet of Things
  • Security issues for the Internet of Things
  • Privacy protection for the Internet of Things
  • Application interfaces among IoT service entities
  • Management for the things and communication networks for the Internet of Things
  • Location management for the Internet of Things
  • Identity management for the Internet of Things
  • Interoperability standards to incorporate various standards
  • Conformance test standards for IoT protocols
  • They claim that “IoT-GSI (Globals Standards Initiative – not GS1) will provide a single location for information on and development of IoT standards”. Sounds a little too centralistic for an for a decentralised Internet (of Things), but I´m sure we will see interesting contributions from this initiative for the future IoT. One of the objectives is to provide a definition of the IoT (one more to add to the list :-)). Link
