IETF A Firmware Update Architecture for Internet of Things Devices
Organization: The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Reference: A Firmware Update Architecture for Internet of Things Devices (Draft) Published on: 30 October 2017 Vulnerabilities with IoT devices have raised the need for a solid and secure firmware update mechanism that is also suitable for constrained devices. Incorporating such update mechanism to fix vulnerabilities, to update configuration settings as well as adding new functionality is recommended by security experts. This document specifies requires and an architecture for a firmware update mechanism aimed for Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The architecture is agnostic to the transport of the firmware images and associated meta-data. This version of...
Organization: Microsoft Reference: Internet of Things security architecture Published on: 3 July 2017 When designing a system, it is important to understand the potential threats to that system, and add appropriate defenses accordingly, as the system is designed and architected. It is particularly important to design the product from the start with security in mind because understanding how an attacker might be able to compromise a system helps make sure appropriate mitigations are in place from the beginning.
Organization: Alliance for Internet of Things Innovation (AIOTI) Reference: High Level Architecture Functional Model Release 2.1 Published on: September 2016 AIOTI WG3 has developed a High Level Architecture (HLA) for IoT. This document provides an initial proposal for a high-level IoT architecture. This document: Introduces the use of ISO/IEC/IEEE 42010 by AIOTI WG3 Presents a Domain Model and discusses the “thing” in IoT Presents a Functional Model Links this work with the AIOTI WG3 Semantic Interoperability work and the SDO Landscape work
Organization: International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Reference: CD 30141 Internet of Things Reference Architecture (IoT RA) (Committee Draft) Published on: 10 September 2016 This document provides a standardized IoT reference architecture using a common vocabulary, reusable designs and industry best practices. It uses a top down approach, beginning with collecting the most important characteristics of IoT, abstracting those into a generic IoT conceptual model, deriving from the conceptual model to a high level system based reference model and then breaking down from reference model to the five architecture views (functional view, system view, user view, information view and communication view)...

Organization: Platform Industrie 4.0 Reference: Reference Architectural Model Industrie 4.0 (RAMI4.0) Published on: April 2016 RAMI 4.0 is a three-dimensional map showing how to approach the issue of Industrie 4.0 in a structured manner. RAMI 4.0 ensures that all participants involved in Industrie 4.0 discussions understand each other. It combines all elements and IT components in a layer and life cycle model and breaks down complex processes into easy-to-grasp packages, including data privacy and IT security.
Organization: Symantec Reference: Security Reference Architecture for the Internet of Things (IoT) Published on: 17 September 2015 This paper describes a powerful and easy-to-deploy architecture for mitigating the vast majority of security threats to the Internet of Things, including advanced and sophisticated threats. The architecture rests on five fundamental tenets: Tenet 1: A Strong Trust Model for IoT Tenet 2: Protecting the Code that Drives IoT Tenet 3: Safely and Effectively Managing IoT Tenet 4: Effective Host-Based Protection for IoT Tenet 5: Security Analytics to Address Threats Beyond the Above Countermeasures
Organization: The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Reference: 2413 Standard for an Architectural Framework for the Internet of Things (IoT) (Draft) Published on: 3 September 2015 (Draft - Work in Progress)   This standard defines an architectural framework for the Internet of Things (IoT), including descriptions of various IoT domains, definitions of IoT domain abstractions, and identification of commonalities between different IoT domains. The architectural framework for IoT provides a reference model that defines relationships among various IoT verticals (e.g., transportation, healthcare, etc.) and common architecture elements. It also provides a blueprint for data abstraction and the quality "quadruple"...
Organization: Internet of Things - Architecture Reference: Architectural Reference Model for the IoT v3.0 Published on: 15 July 2013 IoT-A, the European Lighthouse Integrated Project created the proposed architectural reference model together with the definition of an initial set of key building blocks. Together they are envisioned as foundations for fostering the emerging Internet of Things. Using an experimental paradigm, IoT-A combined top-down reasoning about architectural principles and design guidelines with simulation and prototyping in exploring the technical consequences of architectural design choices.
