The European Computer Manufacturers' Association is pursuing the following security related activities:
is working on Security Extensions to ODA (ODA stands for Office Document Architecture and TC29 works on Document Architecture and Interchange).
is working on a Threat/Attack Model for Transaction Processing.
is working on integrating cryptography into ISDN.
TG9 is currently working on an Authentication and Privilege Attribute Security Application and on a protocol to perform Security Association Management, i.e., a key management protocol. It is increasingly apparent that keys are one of the parameters that are necessary for cryptographic services. Thus, key management as a rule involves managing more than just keys.
It should be noted that this is the ECMA Task Group that works on general aspects of Security and that it has already produced two rather influential documents:
This committee includes several experts that are active in ISO and in CCITT. Therefore, both its past and its current work influence the standardization process.
