IEEE PC62.92.6

IEEE Draft Guide for the Application of Neutral Grounding in Electrical Utility Systems, Part VI – Systems Supplied by Current-Regulated Sources

Published by: / 32 pages

Scope

This guide is intended for application to three-phase electrical utility systems and is Part 6 of an IEEE C62.92 series. This part provides definitions and considerations related to system grounding where the dominant sources of system energization are current-regulated or power-regulated power conversion devices.

Purpose

This guide defines neutral grounding in the context of current-regulated and power-regulated sources and presents basic considerations of the selection of neutral grounding parameters that will provide for the control of overvoltage on three-phase electrical utility systems in which such sources are dominant.

IEEE Draft Standard for Biometric Open Protocol

Published by: / 125 pages

Scope

The Biometric Open Protocol Standard (BOPS) provides identity assertion, role gathering, multilevel access control, assurance, and auditing. The BOPS implementation includes software running on a client device (e.g., smartphone or mobile device), a trusted BOPS Server, and an intrusion detection system (IDS). The BOPS implementation allows pluggable components to replace existing components’ functionality, accepting integration into the current operating environments in a short period of time. The BOPS implementation adheres to the principle of continuous protection in adjudicating access to resources. Accountability is the mechanism that proves a service-level guarantee of security. The BOPS implementation allows the systems to meet security needs by using the application programming interface (API). The BOPS implementation need not know whether the underlying system is a relational database management system (RDBMS) or a search engine. The BOPS implementation functionality offers a “point-and-cut” mechanism to add the appropriate security to the production systems as well as to the systems in development.

Purpose

This standard provides a biometric-agnostic, multilevel security protocol.

Abstract

Revision Standard – Unapproved Draft.

Identity assertion, role gathering, multilevel access control, assurance, and auditing are provided by the Biometric Open Protocol Standard (BOPS). The BOPS implementation includes software running on a client device, a trusted BOPS server, and an intrusion detection system.The BOPS implementation allows pluggable components to replace existing components functionality, accepting integration into current operating environments in a short period of time.The BOPS implementation provides continuous protection to the resources and assurance of theplacement and viability of adjudication and other key features. Accountability is the mechanismthat proves a service-level guarantee of security. The BOPS implementation allows the systemsto meet security needs by using the application programming interface. The BOPS implementation need not know whether the underlying system is a relational database management system or a search engine. The BOPS implementation functionality offers a pointand-cut mechanism to add the appropriate security to the production systems as well as to the systems in development. The architecture is language neutral, allowing Representational State Transfer (REST), JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security to provide the communication interface. The architecture is built on the servlet specification, open SSLs, Java, JSON, REST, and an open persistent store. All tools adhere to open standards, allowing maximum interoperability.There are a few use cases when biometrics matching is required on a server side. For instance, 1:M matching, which brings a challenge of a slow transaction between the client device and a server. BOPS addresses the speed of biometric authentication transaction and solves the problem of a threat on a mobile device. Such a threat assumes that an intruder decompiles the code on a copied virtual image of a mobile device, uses this source code to stop authentication calls, and attempts to get a control of a server that authenticates and grants permissions.To mitigate these risks, BOPS encrypts the initial biometric value (IBV) without the encryptionkey, then stores a half of the IBV on the client device and the other half on the server. Thebiometric matching occurs on the server.In this way, stolen device can not bypass authentication, hence compromised device or server renders no useful information to an attacker.This document describes the essential methodology to BOPS.

IEEE P1589

IEEE Draft Standard for an Augmented Reality Learning Experience Model

Published by: / 27 pages

Scope

The proposed Augmented Reality (AR) learning experience model will specify how to represent learning activities and their according workplace reference models in a standardized interchange format in order to lower entry barriers for authoring of learning experience spanning real world interaction using sensors and computer vision, and web applications.

Purpose

To develop an overarching integrated conceptual model and the according data model specifications for representing activities, learning context and environment (aka ‘workplace’), and potentially other data model components needed for AR-enhanced learning activities. Separation of slow-changing data for, e.g., environment descriptions from fast-changing data as, e.g., required for step by step guidance is intended and isolation in linked, but physically separate interchange formats is intended to facilitate efficient handling and storage. The standard will define the required data models and modeling languages and their bindings to chosen representation formats (e.g. XML, JSON). The creation of this standard and the interoperability specifications will open the market, adding interchangeable component products to otherwise monolithic augmented reality learning apps. Moreover, it will enable the creation of repositories and online marketplaces for augmented reality enabled learning content. Specific attention will be paid to supporting reuse and repurposing of existing learning contents to cater to ‘mixed’ experiences combining real-world learner guidance with the consumption (or production) of traditional contents such as instructional video material or learning apps and widgets.

Abstract

New IEEE Standard – Unapproved Draft.

Augmented Reality (AR) promises to provide significant boosts in operational efficiency by making information available to employees needing task support in context in real time. At this time, however, there is no general-purpose conceptual model and data model specification for representing learning activities (also known as employee tasks and procedures) and the learning environment in which these tasks are performed (also known as the workplace). This document proposes an overarching integrated conceptual model that describes interactions between the physical world, the user, and digital information, the context for AR-assisted learning and other parameters of the environment. It defines a first proposal of the two types of required data models, modeling languages, and their binding to XML. Creating such interoperability specification and standard will help to open the market, adding interchangeable component products as alternatives to monolithic Augmented Reality-assisted learning systems. Moreover, it will enable the creation of experience repositories and online marketplaces for Augmented Reality-enabled learning content. Specific attention was given to supporting reuse and re-purposing of existing learning content and to cater to mixed experiences combining real-world learner guidance with the consumption (or production) of traditional contents such as instructional video material or learning apps and widgets.
