DMTF Releases New WIP Update to Its Security Protocol and Data Model (SPDM) Specification

DMTF’s Security Protocol and Data Model (SPDM) Specification, Release 0.95, is now available for public download as a Work in Progress (WIP). This specification – developed by DMTF’s Platform Management Components Intercommunication (PMCI) Security Task Force – continues to incorporate the input of the organization’s Alliance Partners to help align component authentication and firmware integrity across the industry.

The SPDM Specification provides message exchange, sequence diagrams, message formats, and other relevant semantics for authentication, firmware measurement, and certificate retrieval. In addition to releasing regular WIP specifications for industry feedback, DMTF has shared its plans for Session Keys in SPDM 1.1, as the organization continues to work on an aggressive development schedule.

Designed to be referenced by other standards organizations and developers, DMTF invites public comment on the SPDM WIP specifications before they are finalized. Feedback may be submitted on our website at https://www.dmtf.org/standards/feedback/.
