Members of the OASIS Open Command and Control (OpenC2) TC create and manage technical content in this TC GitHub repository ( https://github.com/oasis-tcs/openc2-jadn) as part of the TC's chartered work (i.e., the program of work and deliverables described in its charter).
OASIS TC GitHub repositories, as described in GitHub Repositories for OASIS TC Members' Chartered Work, are governed by the OASIS TC Process, IPR Policy, and other policies, similar to TC Wikis, TC JIRA issues tracking instances, TC SVN/Subversion repositories, etc. While they make use of public GitHub repositories, these TC GitHub repositories are distinct from OASIS Open Repositories, which are used for development of open source licensed content.
JSON Abstract Data Notation (JADN) has several purposes, including definition of data structures and validation of data instances. This document specifies a vocabulary to describe the meaning of structured data, to provide hints for user interfaces working with structured data, and to make assertions about what a valid instance must look like. JADN structure definitions are format-neutral. Serialization rules define how JADN instances are represented in specific data formats such as JSON, XML, and CBOR.
This repository is designed to support TC members' work on a formal specification that describes JADN, a tool for defining data structures and validating data instances. The provisional Work Product title is "Specification for JSON Abstract Data Notation, Version 1.0", edited by David Kemp (NSA). This GitHub repository supports development of the content and change tracking for the JSON Abstract Data Notation (JADN) specification as new working draft level revisions are created and the associated CSDs mature.
As stated in this repository's CONTRIBUTING file, contributors to this repository are expected to be Members of the OASIS OpenC2 TC, for any substantive change requests. Anyone wishing to contribute to this GitHub project and participate in the TC's technical activity is invited to join as an OASIS TC Member. Public feedback is also accepted, subject to the terms of the OASIS Feedback License.
