From the Editor's Desk

Steve HallidayWelcome to the latest issue of the High Tech AIDCourier.

Wow, summer has flashed by and I have been busy with projects to the extent that this newsletter never made it off my desk.  Now as September comes round, I need to get back to the fun stuff.   As I mentioned last time, RAIN, the UHF RFID Alliance is taking a chunk of my time.  We are growing constantly as companies realize the benefits of an organization that is designed to grow the market for UHF RFID.  This newsletter should be out in time for you to attend the first meeting of the Alliance in Washington DC.  You will even still have the chance to be a Charter Member.  Visit the web site for all the details (www.rainrfid.org) .

If you or your company needs consulting help in the world of AIDC, then drop me a note and let's chat. High Tech Aid provides consulting on a variety of areas associated with AIDC.

 Follow my Twitter feed (@RFIDMan) for more current RFID, IOT and AIDC news and information.

Are you interested in sponsoring the newsletter?  We are looking for a new sponsor. Drop me a note to editor@hightechaid.com and let me know. E-mail me at editor@hightechaid.com and tell us what you think. Don’t forget to send this issue to your friends so that they can sign up for their own issue of the free newsletter at www.hightechaid.com.  If you have news to share or info you need, let me know at editor@hightechaid.com.

RFID Standards

Recently I attended the plenary meeting of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 31 and its subgroups. The meetings took place at the headquarters of NEN, the Dutch national Standards Organization in Delft, The Netherlands.

  This five day set of meeting included the following standards groups:

  • SC31/WG 4/SG 6

  • SC 31/WG 4

  • SC 31/WG 2

  • SC 31/WG 7

  • And the plenary itself.

 Over 50 members of the committee travelled to Delft to attend the meetings, representing about 17 countries. The members of the various groups worked on several projects during the initial working group meetings and then gathered together for the plenary to discuss issues related to the functioning of the committee.  Some of the highlights of the week were:  

WG 4/SG 6 ISO/IEC 18046-4

  • Test methods for performance of RFID gates in libraries is currently waiting for DIS ballot to start

  •  ISO/IEC 19823-1 Conformance test methods for security service crypto suites – Part 1 General requirements is currently at the working draft level. The set of standards will define the conformance for each suite proposed under ISO/IEC 29167.  Part 1 will deal with the testing of the state machine, more specific testing will occur in each subsequent part

WG 4

  • SG 1 (Application interface protocols) is looking for a new convenor as the prior convenor has retired.

  • There is a new work item on an active 2.45 GHz air interface

  • A presentation from Korea on a new high speed passive UHF air interface received many comments on the feasibility and suitability of the air interface

  • There is a move to make early publication of conformance standards a requirement

WG 2

  • Revisions to ISO/IEC 15459 Unique Identification are at last progressing as AIM is approved as the registration Authority

  • ISO/IEC 29161 Unique Digital Identification is still very controversial. The CD Comment resolution Meeting was not completed in the time available

WG 7

  • There are currently 9 crypto suites in ISO/IEC 29167 in balloting process. The first is likely to be published within the next three months.

SC 31 Plenary

  • Reports from all the work groups and liaison organizations

  • Standing Rules adhoc created to revise the rules for the subcommittee

  • Restructuring adhoc created to determine ways to make the subcommittee more efficient  

If anyone needs more specific information on any of this work, then please contact me for more details.

If you want more information on ISO standardization or on any issue of RFID standardization, then email steve@hightechaid.com. For a look at RFID standards work, you can visit http://www.UnderstandRFIDstandards.com.
