2017 OASIS Open Standards Cup winners announced

OASIS is pleased to announce the winners of the fourth annual Open Standards Cup.

The winner of this year’s Outstanding New Initiative is the OASIS Common Security Advisory Framework (CSAF)TC. The CSAF TC launched last November, chartered to standardize the Common Vulnerability Reporting Framework (CVRF), a structured, machine-readable for communicating vulnerability-related advisories. The TC has already released CVRF v1.2 Committee Specification Draft 01 to the public for comment and review. Omar Santos of CISCO, the TC Chair, accepted the award.

In addition to CSAF, this years’ nominees were the OSLC Lifecycle Integration for Domains (OSLC Domains) TC, Gray Bachelor and Jim Amsden, Chairs, and MQTT, Richard Coppen and Brian Raymor, Chairs.

This year’s Outstanding Approved Standard award goes to the OASIS Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications (TOSCA) TC for the TOSCA Simple Profile in YAML Version 1.0. TOSCA addresses portability and operational management of cloud applications and services across their entire lifecycle. The TOSCA Simple Profile in YAML was created to provide TOSCA in a more accessible syntax to help more users adopt TOSCA. Paul Lipton of CA, the TC Chair, accepted the award.

In addition to TOSCA, this year’s nominees were DocBook v5.1 from the DocBook TC, KMIP Specification and KMIP Profiles v1.3 from the OASIS Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) TC, Business Document Naming and Design Rules v1.0 from the OASIS Universal Business Language (UBL) TC, and XLIFF Version 2.0 from the OASIS XML Localisation Interchange File Format (XLIFF) TC.

Congratulations to all the CSAF and TOSCA TC participants for their outstanding accomplishments. Thanks to the OASIS Technical Advisory Board (TAB) for taking on the difficult job of selecting winners from what was an extremely impressive field of nominees. Carol Geyer and Chet Ensign presented the awards at the OASIS Members Meeting held in conjunction with Borderless Cyber 2017.
