  • Title: oBIX
    Descriptive info: .. oBIX (Open Building Information Xchange) is a focused effort by industry leaders and associations working toward creating a standard XML and Web Services guideline to facilitate the exchange of information between intelligent buildings, enable enterprise application integration and bring forth true systems integration.. Based on Standards widely used by the IT Industry, the oBIX guideline will improve operational effectiveness giving facility managers and building owners increased knowledge and control of their properties.. Comprised of representatives from the entire spectrum of the buildings systems industry, oBIX includes professionals from the security, HVAC, building automation, open protocol and IT disciplines.. oBIX began its life in April of 2003 as the.. CABA XML/Web Services Guideline Committee.. Since then  ...   focuses on the development and adoption of e-business standards.. For More information on OASIS or the oBIX Technical Comittee.. click here.. Looking for a way to get involved?.. Join the discussion board here.. Building Systems working together for the Enterprise.. The mission of the Open Building Information Exchange (oBIX) committee is to develop a publicly available web services interface specification that can be used to obtain data in a simple and secure manner from HVAC, access control, utilities, and other building automation systems, and to provide data exchange between facility systems and enterprise applications.. In addition, the committee will develop implementation guidelines, as needed, to facilitate the development of products that use the web service interface..

  • Title: oBIX
    Descriptive info: What is oBIX?.. oBIX stand for Open Building Information Xchange.. oBIX (OASIS Open Building Information eXchange Technical Committee) is an industry-wide initiative to define XML- and Web services-based mechanisms for building control systems.. oBIX will instrument the control systems for the enterprise.. The purpose of the OASIS Open Building Information Exchange (oBIX) TC is to define a standard web services protocol to enable communications between building mechanical and electrical systems, and enterprise applications.. This protocol will enable facilities and their operations to be managed as full participants in knowledge-based businesses.. The oBIX specification will utilize web services for exchange of information with the mechanical and electrical systems in commercial buildings.. Presently most mechanical and electrical systems are provided with embedded digital controls (DDC).. Most of these devices are low cost and not enabled for TCP/IP.. They are installed with dedicated communications wiring.. Larger DDC controllers provide network communications for these dedicated controllers.. There are several well established binary protocols  ...   largely incompatible protocols.. Because oBIX integrates with the enterprise, it will enable mechanical and electrical control systems to provide continuous visibility of operational status and performance, flagging problems and trends for system analysis or human attention.. oBIX provides a technology that enables facilities operators, owners and tenants to make decisions based on a fully integrated consideration of all life-cycle, environmental, cost, and performance factors.. Scope:.. The scope of the oBIX TC is to develop a publicly available web services interface specification that can be used to obtain data in a simple and secure manner from HVAC, access control, utilities, and other building automation systems, and to provide data exchange between facility systems and enterprise applications.. In addition, the TC will develop implementation guidelines, as needed, to facilitate the development of products that use the web service interface.. Work outside of the above will be considered out of scope for the TC.. For more information visit the OASIS site for oBIX..

    Descriptive info: Who's behind oBIX?.. oBIX is currently a Technical Committee of OASIS.. OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards) is a not-for-profit, international consortium that drives the development, convergence, and adoption of e-business standards.. The consortium produces more Web services standards than any other organization along with standards for security, e-business, and standardization efforts in the public sector and for application-specific markets.. Founded in 1993, OASIS has more than 3,000 participants representing over 600 organizations and individual members in 100 countries.. Current Members of the Committee are.. listed here..

  • Title: oBIX
    Descriptive info: oBIX Group Organization.. The Obix group is made up several working groups in different areas related to the development process.. Data and Web Services Working Group.. Mission:.. This mission of the group is to define standard XML data representations and web services for data acquisition and control systems.. The core of the standard will be a foundation of common types and services applicable to horizontal issues including discovery, points, historical trends, and alarming.. Additional libraries may be defined upon this foundation for vertical domains (HVAC, lighting, security, etc) and heterogeneous protocols (BACnet, Lonworks, Mobus, etc).. Task Group Leader:.. Aaron Hansen, Senior Software Engineer, Tridium Inc.. Active Participants.. :.. Security Working Group.. Task Group Mission Objectives:.. To understand the scope, structure and functions of the oBIX platform.. To research and define security technology appropriate to that platform.. To define general and specific security issues of the platform.. To create a guideline for the application of the technology to address those issues.. No new technology will be offered by the group.. Rather, the guidelines will help practitioners to identify the appropriate technology to be used and implemented in order to deal with defined vulnerabilities and threats.. The working group recognizes that security imposes financial and performance burdens on systems and the  ...   outside of the organization.. These scenarios will be presented in plain English to highlight vulnerabilities and threats in order to reveal the plausibility and seriousness of potential security breaches.. Network security risks fall under five general headings:.. Authentication.. Authorization.. Confidentiality.. Integrity.. Non-Repudiation.. 2).. An overview of appropriate IP, XML and Web Services technologies that have been approved by industry bodies such as W3C, OASIS, WS-I and the Liberty Alliance.. Technologies to be considered will include:.. HTTP/S.. XML-Signature.. XML Encryption.. XKMS.. SAML.. WS-Security.. 3).. Examples to show how these technologies address identified risks as presented in the use cases.. Research in IT shows that security should be designed in at the earliest moment rather than added on after the design of a component or a system.. Therefore, in addition, a methodology will be identified or developed to assist the target group to:.. - identify the risks present at the level of the work for which they are responsible.. - analyze the security technologies that are already present in the components they are working with.. - indicate what additional measures and technologies are required to provide the appropriate level of security.. All output of the security working group will be submitted to the other oBIX groups for comment and eventual modification..
