DASH Desktop and Mobile Architecture for System Hardware

DMTF’s Desktop and mobile Architecture for System Hardware (DASH) Standard is a suite of specifications that takes full advantage of DMTF’s Web Services for Management (WS-Management) specification – delivering standards-based Web services management for desktop and mobile client systems. Through DASH, DMTF provides the next generation of standards for secure out-of-band and remote management of desktop and mobile systems.

The System Management Forum, part of DMTF's Interoperability Committee, develops and implements programs for verifying compliance of software and hardware that implement DMTF system management standards.

DMTF welcomes feedback on our standards, but requires that individuals submitting comments first agree to our Feedback Policy.

Note: All relevant profiles are available on this aggregated Management Profiles page.
