ICYMI - Security Specification 1.3 Features Presentation

Posted on Thu, 06/29/2023 - 09:34

SPDM recently released a key features presentation to accompany its 1.3.0 Specification. This specification – developed by DMTF’s Security Protocols and Data Models Working Group – continues to incorporate the input of the organization’s Alliance Partners to help align component authentication, confidentiality, and integrity objects across the industry.

The presentation is designed to highlight the key features, additions, and changes in the latest release.

The SPDM Specification (DSP0274) provides message exchange, sequence diagrams, message formats, and other relevant semantics for authentication, firmware measurement, certificate retrieval, and session key exchange protocols to enable confidentiality and integrity protected data communication thus enabling encrypted and authenticated communication of data in flight. Other specifications define the mapping of these messages to different transports and physical media. SPDM enables efficient access to low-level security capabilities and operations.
