The Open Interconnect Consortium Inc. (OIC) announced the public availability of its candidate Internet of Things (IoT) specification. The OIC Candidate Specification 1.0, guiding the OIC-sponsored IoTivity open source project, is a cloud-native architecture for the IoT documented in a formal specification that can be implemented almost any way a developer chooses. The OIC Candidate Specification 1.0 includes core framework, smart home device, resource type, security and remote access capabilities. Cloud-native architecture is designed to give developers more flexibility and means that even if developers start with a local-only approach they don't have to re-architect to scale as their products become increasingly successful.

"The IT industry has looked to cloud pioneers to see how they handle millions of mobile devices and interactions, and has learned that only cloud-native design will reliably scale to handle the millions of IoT devices and interactions we expect to see in successful projects," said Mike Richmond, executive director at the Open Interconnect Consortium. "Based on this insight, we developed this candidate specification and are making it available for evaluation by everyone."

With the launch of this new specification, the OIC anticipates certifying the first OIC-compliant products by the end of the year.

Richmond said, "With OIC's approach, companies can ship their own implementation or the open source implementation to meet a wide range of product requirements."
