Standard for an Architectural Framework for the Internet of Things (IoT)

IEEE P2413 Scope:

This standard defines an architectural framework for the Internet of Things (IoT), including descriptions of various IoT domains, definitions of IoT domain abstractions, and identification of commonalities between different IoT domains. The architectural framework for IoT provides a reference model that defines relationships among various IoT verticals (e.g., transportation, healthcare, etc.) and common architecture elements. It also provides a blueprint for data abstraction and the quality "quadruple" trust that includes protection, security, privacy, and safety." Furthermore, this standard provides a reference architecture that builds upon the reference model. The reference architecture covers the definition of basic architectural building blocks and their ability to be integrated into multi-tiered systems. The reference architecture also addresses how to document and, if strived for, mitigate architecture divergence. This standard leverages existing applicable standards and identifies planned or ongoing projects with a similar or overlapping scope.

The Project is sponsored by the IEEE-SA Board of Governors/Corporate Advisory Group (BOG/CAG), and co-spnsored by the IEEE Consumer Electronics Society - Standards Committee (CES/SC), the IEEE Communications Society - Power Line Communications (COM/PLC), the IEEE Communications Society - Standards Development Board (COM/SDB) and the IEEE Computer Society - Cloud Computing Standards Committee (C/CCSC). For more information on this project, please contact the Chair or IEEE-SA Staff.
