IoT Ecosystem Expands with New Standards From oneM2M

By Ken Briodagh October 03, 2016

oneM2M, a global standards initiative for M2M communications and the IoT, has announced that it has published its new set of oneM2M specifications, Release 2.  

Based on contributions from more than 200 member companies, Release 2 builds on oneM2M’s initial set of official specifications, which were designed to enable basic connectivity between applications and devices. The new specifications will open up the IoT ecosystem to devices that lack the protocol and enable interworking among systems using AllSeen Alliance's AllJoyn, Open Connectivity Foundation's OIC, and the Open Mobile Alliance's Lightweight M2M (LWM2M). As a result, the number of devices that can connect with one another in the IoT ecosystem is greatly expanded, the organization said.

Security has also been addressed throughout the 17 specifications of Release 2, by enabling end-to-end secure information exchange between any devices or servers, as well as implementing attribute and role-based dynamic access control, which allows the complexity of handling access control policies in consumer oriented IoT scenarios and enables granting temporary authorization to devices during operation.

“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.”

In addition to the published specifications, application developers now have access to user-friendly APIs and guidelines, complementing the global set of IoT standards for this critical group of stakeholders, and further facilitating access to the official source of global, IoT-application identifiers that comply with the oneM2M standard, the oneM2M App-ID registry.

“We're already working on Release 3 as technology advancements don't stand still,” added Elloumi. “The oneM2M global alliance is dedicated to providing the necessary interoperability to give technology suppliers and their customers secure connectivity as we embrace the next great technological revolution of the modern era.”
