US: ATIS - Secure Wireless Internet (ITS)


This solution is used within the U.S.. It combines standards associated with US: ATIS with those for I–M: Secure Wireless Internet (ITS). The US: ATIS standards include upper–layer standards required to implement traveler information communications. The I–M: Secure Wireless Internet (ITS) standards include lower–layer standards that support secure communications between two entities, either or both of which may be mobile devices, but they must be stationary or only moving within wireless range of a single wireless access point (e.g., a parked car). Security is based on X.509 or IEEE 1609.2 certificates. A non–mobile (if any) endpoint may connect to the service provider using any Internet connection method.

MgmtIETF RFC 3415View–based Access Control Model (VACM) for the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)This standard (RFC) contains a MIB that supports the configuration and management of the View–based access control model of SNMP.
MgmtIETF RFC 3416Version 2 of the Protocol Operations for the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)This standard (RFC) defines the message structure and protocol operations used by SNMPv3.
MgmtIETF RFC 3418Management Information Base (MIB) for the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)This standard (RFC) defines the MIB to configure and manage an SNMP entity.
MgmtIETF RFC 4293Management Information Base for the Internet Protocol (IP)This standard (RFC) defines the MIB that manages an IP entity.
SecurityIETF RFC 5280Internet X.509 Public Key Infrastructure Certificate and Certificate Revocation List (CRL) ProfileThis standard (RFC) defines how to use X.509 certificates for secure communications over the Internet.
SecurityIETF RFC 8446The Transport Layer Security (TLS) ProtocolThis standard (RFC) specifies Version 1.3 of the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol. The TLS protocol provides communications security over the Internet. The protocol allows client/server applications to communicate in a way that is designed to prevent eavesdropping, tampering, or message forgery.
ITS Application EntitySAE J2353Data Dictionary for Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS)This document provides a set of core data elements needed by information service providers for Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS). The data dictionary herein provides the foundation for ATIS message sets for all stages of travel (pre–trip and en route), all types of travelers (drivers, passengers), all categories of information, and all platforms for delivery of information (in–vehicle, portable devices, kiosks, etc.). The elements of this document are the basis for the SAE ATIS Message Set Standard J2354 and are entered into the SAE Data Registry for ITS wide coordination.

FacilitiesSAE J2354Message Sets for Advanced Traveler Information System (ATIS)This standard defines how to exchange data for Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS). The messages contained herein address all stages of travel (pre–trip and en–route), all types of travelers (drivers, passengers), all categories of information, and all platforms for delivery of information (in–vehicle, portable devices, kiosks, etc.).

TransNetIETF RFC 4291IP Version 6 Addressing ArchitectureThis standard (RFC) defines the addressing architecture of the IP Version 6 (IPv6) protocol. It includes the IPv6 addressing model, text representations of IPv6 addresses, definition of IPv6 unicast addresses, anycast addresses, and multicast addresses, and an IPv6 node's required addresses.

Readiness: Low

Readiness Description

One serious or several significant issues. This category often includes proprietary or partial solutions. The communications solution may fail to provide even a base level of interoperability and security. Consider alternative solutions, or define specific revisions or upgrades that would provide a level of interoperability or security that are needed for the deployment.
