DMTF Announces the SPDM Working Group

Posted on Thu, 08/25/2022 - 09:17

DMTF has announced that the Security Protocols and Data Models (SPDM) Working Group now reports directly to the Technical Committee. Formerly a task force under the Platform Management Communications Infrastructure (PMCI) Working Group, the group’s work has increased in scope, industry support and interest. This change will help with industry alignment and allow the group to work more closely with other DMTF groups and Alliance Partners. In addition, the working group will be able to focus on features that not only support management and control activities but also support securing data at rest and in flight.

The SPDM Working Group creates platform security standards and technologies, which complement the organization’s other work and standards such as PMCI, the Redfish® Standard, SMBIOS, as well as remote access protocols that are defined in other DMTF groups.

SPDM is leveraged by other industry specifications to create a common security framework. As part of our Alliance Partner program, organizations including CXL Consortium, HDBaseT Alliance, MIPI Alliance, Open Compute Project, PCI-SIG, and the Trusted Computing Group provide crucial input to SPDM thus benefiting the industry at large. 

DMTF members are encouraged to join the SPDM Working Group and help shape these crucial security deliverables by visiting SPDM’s workspace page. Non-members who would like to join DMTF to contribute can learn more here:
