OCF 1.0 ratified by ISO/IEC JTC 1 as secure IoT interoperability protocol
November 27, 2018
The OCF standard will be published as ISO/IEC 30118 (Parts 1-6).
BEAVERTON, OR. The Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) announced that its OCF 1.0 specification has been ratified by the ISO/IEC’s Joint Technical Committee for ICT standardization as an international standard for IoT interoperability. The OCF standard will be published as ISO/IEC 30118 (Parts 1-6).
OCF 1.0 provides an open IoT communications platform and bridging specification that allows connected devices to communicate regardless of form factor, OS, provider, transport technology, or ecosystem.
“Achieving this recognition reinforces OCF’s contribution to the global IoT community to solve the interoperability gap between devices, supported by the development of ISO/IEC 30118 standardization and OCF-certified devices in the coming years,” says John Park, Executive Director of OCF.
OCF also plans to submit its OCF 2.0 specification to ISO/IEC JTC 1 for ratification later this year. OCF 2.0 adds a security framework based on Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and cloud management to a cloud-native network protocol.
