NEW PROJECT:

OASIS to launch TC for augmented reality
 

The Augmented Reality for Information Products (ARIP) TC will define standards for governing the use of AR in technical communications. The work will apply to web pages help files, social media sites, software and hardware instructions, training programs, medical procedures, environmental regulations, functional specifications, etc. To join Huawei as an ARIP TC Proposer, contact OASIS by 10 Apr.

Consortium announces Board election schedule

This year, five seats on the OASIS Board of Directors and three seats on the Technical Advisory Board are open for election. All members are eligible to serve on either Board and to nominate candidates. Nominations will be accepted from 29 Apr to 27 May.

OASIS Standard ballots open for PKCS #11

Ballots for four PKCS #11 public key cryptography specifications are now underway and will close 14 Apr. PKCS #11 employs cryptographic tokens to control authentication information (personal identity, cryptographic keys, certificates, digital signatures, biometric data). The specifications were developed by representatives of Sponsors, Cryptsoft, Dell, EMC, Fornetix, Futurex, Oracle, Red Hat, SafeNet, Symantec, Thales e-Security, VMware, Vormetric, and others. All organizational members of OASIS are encouraged to vote on the PKCS #11 ballots; those who wish to discuss the ballot may do so through oasis-member-discuss@lists.oasis-open.org.
 

UBL TC publishes Committee Notes

UBL Maintenance Governance Procedures 1.0 describes the governance of the process to propose, accept and incorporate changes to OASIS Universal Business Language (UBL) 2 specifications. UBL Guidelines for Mapping IFTM UN/EDIFACT Messages 1.0 applies to data structures used in UBL document types BillOfLading, ForwardingInstructions and Waybill (as well as other document types used in intermodal and multimodal freight). Congratulations to UBL TC chairs, Ken Holman and Tim McGrath; to representatives of Sponsors, Boeing, NEC, the US Department of Defense (DoD); and to all TC members.

XACML TC publishes Committee Specification

Extensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) Data Loss Prevention / Network Access Control (DLP/NAC) Profile 1.0 defines standard attribute identifiers for data loss prevention policies, and recommends attribute value ranges for certain attributes. Congratulations to XACML TC chairs, Hal Lockhart of Oracle and Bill Parducci; to representatives of Foundational Sponsors: IBM and Microsoft; to Sponsors: Boeing, CA Technologies, Cisco, Connectis, EMC, Oracle, Red Hat, US Veterans Health Administration, ViewDS; and to all XACML TC members.

Public reviews begin for UBL, DocBook, BDE, TGF, EDXL-HAVE

UBL Naming and Design Rules 3.0 prescribes a set of naming and design rules used to create XML document model validation artefacts (W3C XSD schemas and OASIS Context/value association files) associated with abstract information bundles formally described using the ISO/TS 15000-5:2005 Core Component Technical Specification. This public review ends 15 Apr.

DocBook 5.1 is a general purpose schema well suited to books and papers about computer hardware and software (though it is by no means limited to these applications). Version 5.1 introduces assemblies for topic-oriented authoring and addresses a selection of bugs and feature requests. The public review ends 21 Apr.

Business Document Envelope (BDE) 1.0 idefines a business-oriented artefact enveloping a payload of one or more documents or artefacts with supplemental semantic information about the collection of payloads as a whole. This is distinct from any transport-layer infrastructure envelope that may be required to propagate documents from one system to another. The public review ends 25 Apr.

Transformational Government Framework (TGF) e-Health Profile 2.0 contains detailed information and guidance on using TGF and other OASIS standards to support delivery of e-Health services provided in the home or in the community. The public review ends 1 May.

Emergency Data Exchange Language (EDXL) Hospital AVailability Exchange (HAVE) 2.0 is an XML messaging standard that supports information sharing about facility services, bed counts, operations, capacities, and resource needs so first responders, emergency managers, hospitals, care facilities, and the health community can provide one another with a coherent view of the health system. The public review ends 15 May.

Utimaco joins OASIS PKCS #11 Interop at RSA

Along with Cryptosense, Cryptsoft, Feitian, and Oracle, Utimaco will show how PKCS #11 is used for interacting with cryptographic tokens and hardware security modules. The RSA event will also feature a KMIP Interop with Cryptsoft, Dell, Fornetix, HP, IBM, P6R, Thales e-Security, and Vormetric. Reserve a free pass for the 20-24 April expo in San Francisco by using the code X5EOASIS when registering.
 

AllSeen and OASIS team up at European Identity & Cloud Conference

Souheil Ben Yacoub of the AllSeen Alliance will join the OASIS-hosted panel discussion, "IT, IAM, OT, IoT: Mastering the Integration Challenge" on 7 May in Munich. This panel will explore how to develop the integrated technical frameworks for device interoperability that will be necessary for the growth and scaled management of IoT devices.
