ISO/IEC 29161-2016 pdf free.Information technology – Data structure – Unique identification for the Internet of Things.
ISO/IEC 29161 establishes a unique identification scheme for the Internet of Things (loT), based on existing and evolving data structures. This International Standard specifies the common rules applicable for unique identification that are required to ensure full compatibility across different identities. The unique identification is a universal construct for any physical object, virtual object, or person. It is used in loT information systems that need to track or otherwise refer to entities. It is intended for use with any loT media.

5 Identification of an “entity’
5.1 General
For the UFUSC ul this International Standard, the term “thing” considers the following as synonyms; “item’, “object” and “entity”. A thing may be a person, object, or location; see also Annex D.
When one considers the Internet of Things (loT), the definition of the “thing” is most often coloured by the perspective of the person undertaking the consideration. If one is coming from the world of sensors, the loT is simply an expansion of a sensor network. If one is coming from the world of RFID, the loT is simply an expansion of an RFID infrastructure. If one is coming from the world of geospatial data, the loT is simply an expansion of a location-based network. If one is coming from the world of telecommunications, the loT is simply an expansion of a telecommunications network. In truth, all are correct. Figure 2 shows some of the possible iterations of “things” that would be possible to connect through the loT, using various existing communication interfaces. Of course, there are other possibilities and these iterations of loT might actually be combined, e.g. a mobile phone reading a 2D symbol, an RF tag, or a wireless IC device.
A single transaction may need to capture several identities as it progresses from origin to destination (and return). For example, there may exist a need to capture, each time a transaction is recorded, the following:
— item identification;
— sensor identification;
— node identification;
— gateway identification;
— target resource identification;
— location of data capture, if mobile;
— time of data capture;
— identification of the individual;
As a virtual thing, software, or software content, ISO/IEC 8824-1:2015, 3.8.52 defines an “object’ as A well-defined piece of information, definition, or spefication which requires a name in order to identify its use in an instance of communication. An object is an abstraction or simulation of physical things such as people (people are included in this definition of object only to be true to the quote, whereas this International Standard discriminates between people, objects, and locations) and machines or intangible things such as events and processes that captures their characteristics and behaviour. Something you can do things to. An object has state, behaviour, and Identity; the structure and behaviour of similar objects are defined in their common class.IMI
The following are properties that may characterize a thing:
a) Identity: the property of an entity that distinguishes it from other entities;
b) Type: describes the type of entity;
c) Data: describes if and how persons, locations and/or other entities can be tied to the entity;
d) Behaviour: describes the methods in the location’s interface by which the location can be used.
5.2 OvervIew of the loT Network”
The Internet of Things (loT) network aims to enable almost everything to communicate with each other, being connected using various communication interfaces and protocols like IPv4, lPv6, MAC addresses, CoAP/REST, XMPP, etc.
Prerequisite for the loT network is the possibility to tie various information to the right thing fora given purpose using unambiguous identities to which specified information Is tied which Is then exchanged using application defined protocols.ISO/IEC 29161 pdf download.
