oasis-avatar An OASIS Work Product Repository oasis-avatar

Members of the OASIS Open Command and Control (OpenC2) Technical Committee use this GitHub repository as part of the TC's chartered work. Contributors must be Members of the TC. Work is governed by the OASIS policies and is not done under typical open source licensing. For more details, see the Contributions and Licensing sections below.

πŸ“˜ Specification for Transfer of OpenC2 Messages Via HTTPS πŸ“˜

This specification provides guidance to the OpenC2 implementation community when utilizing HTTPS for OpenC2 message transport.

πŸ”€ Repository Organization πŸ”€


OpenC2 work product repositories are organized a bit differently than typical open source software project repositories:

  • The Published (default) branch represents the current, stable, approved version of the work product. If the product hasn't progressed past an OASIS Committee Specification Draft (CSD), this branch is essentially empty
  • The Working branch is where all work-in-progress content is captured, and is the place to go for the current working version of this work product

More information about the TC's repository organizing conventions and branching strategy can be found in our Documentation Norms.

πŸ—¨οΈ Description πŸ—¨οΈ

This GitHub repository supports development of content and change tracking for the OpenC2 HTTPS Transfer Specification as new working draft level revisions are created and the associated CSDs mature.

The repository is designed to support TC members' work on a formal specification that describes the use of secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTPS) as a transfer mechanism for OpenC2 messages. HTTPS provides a widely-used point-to-point messaging transport protocol. This specification provides guidance to the OpenC2 implementation community when utilizing HTTPS for OpenC2 message transport.

The Work Product title for the work is: "Specification for Transfer of OpenC2 Messages via HTTPS, Version 1.1", edited by David Lemire (HII).
