Gemini call 19/10: The Open Connectivity Foundation Secure IP Device Framework

The Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) Secure IP Device Framework standard enables IoT devices and services to communicate through a trusted open internet protocol (IP) framework which dynamically aligns with baselines for IoT security and privacy regulations, offering peace of mind and enriched experiences.

OCF members collaborate with the IoT ecosystem to deploy and evolve the OCF ISO/IEC specification, its open-source reference implementation, and an industry-recognized certification program that:

  • Enables secure end-to-end implementations that encompass device-to-device, device-to-cloud, and cloud-to-cloud communication;
  • Aids secure deployments with rapid development and simple integrations with IP networks and non-IP systems; 
  • Fosters competition, facilitates productivity, and drives innovation.

OCF installations are being deployed in both Europe and Asia. In Korea for example, the Land and Housing Corporation (LH) – a semi-government-owned corporation responsible for the development of land in cities, and the maintenance and management of land and housing – set out an ambitious plan. In just one year, it aimed to build a smart home platform using the OCF Secure IP Device Framework as its foundation. The platform aimed to enable residents to get the most out of their apartment and building complex.

An IoT smart hub in each home (collecting and analysing IoT big data) will feature built-in fine dust and CO2 sensors, and will be able to control 15 different types of device via an OCF-compliant Smart Home app. This will all be possible, no matter which telecommunication company, home appliances or products the consumers choose. 5,000 homes have already been identified as part of the pilot program with more than 228,000 targeted by 2024.

All of this work comes down to the significant security, privacy and interoperability challenges in IoT. This is limiting consumers’ options and hindering market expansion. As governments work to connect infrastructure, proprietary IoT solutions can’t meet their requirements. This national roll-out of our Secure IP Device Framework answers these challenges while improving tenants’ living experience through automation, optimized air quality, energy efficiency and more. This is true leadership from the Korea Information and Communication Technology Association (TTA) and LH, and a model that can be replicated elsewhere.

About OCF:

The Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) is a global, member-driven technical standards development organization. Its 500+ members are working to enable trust, interoperability, and secure communication between IP-connected IoT devices and services. It does this by fostering collaboration between stakeholders across the IoT ecosystem to deliver the freely-available ISO/IEC specifications, including the Secure IP Device Framework, its open-source reference implementation, and an industry-recognized certification program. This enables innovative new secure use cases and user experiences, reduces development costs, integration complexity and time to market, and simplifies regulatory compliance to IoT security and privacy baselines. 
OCF members work across the enterprise layers of infrastructure, applications, and data. They collaborate to co-create and deploy systems in an open and standardized way, enabling devices to communicate over IP, regardless of form factor, operating system, service provider, transport technology, or ecosystem.   
The vertical-agnostic technology has already seen significant adoption in the smart home sector and is now enabling the transition to secure, intelligent, Building Automation Systems (BAS) based on IP connectivity networks.
