Learn how DMTF’s Redfish, SMBIOS, and the suite of standards from DMTF's PMCI Working Group are helping enable end-to-end interoperability by addressing everything from management clients to servers to individual system components.
White Paper: Redfish SmartNIC White Paper
A SmartNIC is a network card with programmable offload capabilities. End users are able to migrate networking logic directly to the card in order to reduce system CPU usage and perform security related tasks to isolate an interface from the rest of the system. This white paper highlights best practices for modeling these types of devices in Redfish.
Companies face security risks, threats, and challenges to their computing infrastructure every day. Consequently, platform security is becoming increasingly important as the fundamental building block to enable infrastructure security from the ground up. As platform firmware components have become a new area for attacks, DMTF has developed the Security Protocol and Data Model (SPDM) standard to address these challenges. This Technical Note provides an overview of SPDM and highlights how this standard is helping solve platform security concerns in a common way and enabling platform integrity.
Learn more about the PMCI Working Group and the specifications that it creates. This Technical Note will help answer your questions with an overview of the PMCI architecture and the benefits of each standard including Management Component Transport Protocol (MCTP), Network Controller Sideband Interface (NC-SI), Platform Level Data Model (PLDM), and Security Protocol and Data Model (SPDM).
