This document specifies cloud computing interoperability and portability types, the relationship and interactions between these two cross-cutting aspects of cloud computing, and common terminology and concepts used to discuss interoperability and portability and particularly relating to cloud services.
This document is related to other standards namely ISO/IEC 17788, ISO/IEC 17789, ISO/IEC 19086-1, ISO/IEC 199441, and in particular references the cross-cutting aspects and components identified in ISO/IEC 17788 and ISO/IEC 17789 respectively.
The goal of this document is to ensure that all parties involved in cloud computing, particularly CSCs, CSPs and CSNs acting as Cloud Service Developers, have a common understanding of interoperability and portability for their specific needs. This common understanding helps to achieve interoperability and portability in cloud computing by establishing common terminology and concepts.
1 Under preparation. Stage at the time of publication: ISO/DIS 19944:2016.
This standard specifies a UCM (Universal Communications Module) that transfers energy management data via a home network between an end-device and an energy management agent (specified in ISO/IEC 15067-3) or an energy service provider. This standard specifies the mechanical, electrical and logical characteristics of the interfaces of UCM to an end-device (hereafter referred-to as an SGD – Smart Grid Device) and a choice of interfaces to a home communications network.
It specifies a mechanism through which network, transport and application layer messages specified in other documents listed in this standard may be passed through the interface. For those end-devices that cannot process one of the “pass-through” command sets, a “Simple Protocol” is specified according to the OSI (Open System Interconnect) reference model (ISO/IEC 7498-1) including application layer messaging for energy management.
The UCM specified in this standard is intended to be installable by the purchaser, home occupant or professional installer. The connectors are integrated in a way that allows for easy, plug-in installation. However, the manufacturer may choose to pre-install a module during production or have installation handled by a manufacturer representative or professional installer.
Note 1 to entry: Some regulatory authorities require that appliances intended for participation in energy management, such as thermostats, be user installable.
Note 2 to entry: The scope of this specification does not include safety related construction, performance, marking or instruction requirements. UCM products should additionally comply with applicable product safety standard(s). Examples of such standards are presented in Informative Annex G.
This document specifies interindustry commands for card, file and other structure management i.e. data object and security object. These commands cover the entire life cycle of the card and therefore some commands may be used before the card has been issued to the cardholder or after the card has expired. For details on record life cycle state refer to ISO/IEC 7816-4.
It does not cover the internal implementation within the card and/or the outside world.
This part of ISO/IEC 2382 is intended to facilitate international communication in information technology for learning, education, and training. It presents, in two languages, terms and definitions of selected concepts relevant to the field of information technology for learning, education, and training and identifies relationships among the entries.
English, French and Russian versions of the Standard exist. Translations into some languages other than the three official ISO languages are provided by national bodies that are members of ISO or IEC and are available as JTC1/SC36 working group 1 (WG1) documents.
It is important to note that the terms learning, education, and training (LET) are used broadly and in quite different contexts globally. However, for the purposes of this part of ISO/IEC 2382, which is concerned with LET in the context of Information Technology, certain delimiting characteristics prevail and definitions have been provided with this in mind.
