Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Internet standards body OASIS has established a technical committee to develop a web services specification for cross-platform distributed systems management.

The Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) Management Protocol Technical Committee has been created to build a protocol that integrates systems and management tools.

Committee chairman Winston Bumpus said in a statement: "Our work... will help us level the playing field and allow companies to manage systems regardless of the platform they use."

The protocol will be built for management of desktops, services and networks across an enterprise or internet environment. OASIS said the protocol would also let users oversee their services' interaction with services offered by other companies.

OASIS said it is reviewing a number of web services standards for potential use in the protocol, including XML, Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), Open Model Interface (OMI) and the Distributed Management Task Force's Common Information Model (CIM).
