  3. 3. 3 This is going to look a lot like the Internet in the sense that everything depends on interoperability. Seth Frader-Thompson, EnergyHub
  4. 4. 2 June 2015 AllSeen Alliance 4 IOT Challenges to Privacy Ubiquitous data collection Unexpected uses of consumer data that could have adverse consequences Heightened security risks Speech of FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez; Privacy and the IoT: Navigating Policy Issues International Consumer Electronics Show, January 6, 2015 Key Solutions Security by design Data minimization Notice and choice before information shared
  5. 5. 2 June 2015 AllSeen Alliance 5 Gateway Working Group Mission: Provide standard and secure interfaces between AllJoyn devices in a proximal network and other IOT protocols, external networks, remote access and cloud services Current Projects Gateway Agent Project: A standard, secure application to securely connect AllJoyn applications with external networks and services. Analytics Connector Project: Provides a common API for capturing events, state, and other information, to be collected and transmitted outside the AllJoyn proximal network Device System Bridge Project: Provides a bridge to connect external non-AllJoyn devices to the AllJoyn bus in a proximal network (samples available for Z-wave and BACnet) Update Service Project: Provides a standard and secure interface for remotely updating AllJoyn applications (i.e. thin clients) via another connected AllJoyn node.
  6. 6. 2 June 2015 AllSeen Alliance 6 Gateway Agent Project AllJoyn Meets Cloud / Managed Services DVR: OK playing My Hawaii vacation movie Car: OK Lights are now OFF TV: Fixing WiFi video quality TV: My WiFi video picture is poor Fix it? Dryer: Laundry is ready 72 120 80 Turn off the kitchen lights, Set away mode. OK changing to away modeDVR: play my Hawaii vacation movie Laundry is ready BeFit: Congratulations goal met! 72 AllJoyn Gateway Agent Cloud / Managed Services AllJoyn local applications AllJoyn remote applications
  7. 7. 2 June 2015 AllSeen Alliance 7 AllJoyn Gateway Agent Application Software application ideal for an always on, connected hardware device in the proximal network turning it into an AllJoyn to remote services gateway Provides a standard and secure method for connecting local AllJoyn devices and applications to external services Works with any Internet connection Supports persistent remote connections without special firewall or port settings
  8. 8. 2 June 2015 AllSeen Alliance 8 Managed and Secure AllJoyn Remote Routing Node Filters local AllJoyn traffic from remote traffic only traffic needed for the users cloud or remote services is passed Filters are configured by the Gateway Agents remote Service Profiles managed by the Gateway Agent Control API Enhances the users privacy and security Enables managed service privacy policies Supports multiple independent cloud services in one device with modular Connector plug-ins Supports other local protocols (6LowPAN, ZigBee, etc.)
  9. 9. 2 June 2015 AllSeen Alliance 9 Consumer Mode Operation User self-manages their AllJoyn connections to external services Services provisioned via a mobile app with the Gateway Control App component Connector Plug-in installed Service Profile managed Consumer must be at home when configuring their cloud service using Control App BA SP AppConnector Plug-in Gateway Management App Config file policy enforcement Client Lib.

  10. 10. 2 June 2015 AllSeen Alliance 10 XMPP Remote Connector An XMPP Cloud Services Connector plug-in for the Gateway Agent supporting its APIs and service profiles Relays local AllJoyn messages, to/from a remote AllJoyn application by wrapping these in XMPP sessions relayed via a standard XMPP server cloud service Subscribers authenticate with their cloud services XMPP ID provides secure authentication and an encrypted channel for AllJoyn remote access Embedded version for Linux AllSeen Open Source contribution from Affinegy available June 2015 Mobile app version will be available from Affinegy June 2015 as both a helper application and an SDK. Helper app uses the AllJoyn bus in the mobile device to remotely enable existing AllJoyn apps.
