oneM2M Issues New IoT Global Standards

IOT Skill Shortage

oneM2M, the global standards initiative for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications and the IoT, has published a new set of specifications, Release 2.

Based on contributions from more than 200 member companies, Release 2 opens up the IoT ecosystem to devices that lack the protocol and enables interplay among systems using AllSeen Alliance's AllJoyn, Open Connectivity Foundation’s OIC, and the Open Mobile Alliance’s Lightweight M2M (LWM2M).

“The standards published today mark a major milestone for the Internet of Things, by providing the unique value proposition of a single interworking platform for all enabled devices” said Dr. Omar Elloumi, Chair of the oneM2M Technical Plenary, (Nokia corporate CTO group). “As IoT devices continue to saturate society, standardisation is key to achieving universally accepted specifications and protocols for true interoperability between IoT devices and applications.”

The new release particularly addresses security throughout its 17 specifications, enabling end-to-end secure information exchange between any devices or servers, as well as implementing attribute and role-based dynamic access control.
In addition to the published specifications, application developers now have access to APIs and guidelines.
