Hi Adrian,

Yes, while Q14/15 already reached agreement to update the Application Identifier description, the update has not been formally approved and published by SG15 yet. Q14/15 may be able to consent this update as an Amendment to G.874.1 at the upcoming SG15 meeting in July 2015.

Regards,
Kam

Thanks for being awake, Kam.

Useful info.

Gert, the OUI registry is an IEEE registry as Kam says. IANA has a registry page for this, but it points to the IEEE page.

As I understand Kam, 874.1 is not yet updated so it would be premature to point to it, but an option is to attempt to match it now and fix later if needed.

Hi Gert,

A vendor can purchase an OUI (Organizationally Unique Identifier) from the IEEE Registration Authority.
Once a vendor has its OUI, the vendor can manage its vendor-specific application identifiers under its own OUI.
SG15 doesn't need to host any registry for this purpose.

Kam

Hi Kam,

Is SG15 considering to host a registry for the vendor specific application code or is the IETF registry supposed to be used?

Thanks

Gert

Dear all,



For your information. In the last SG15 meeting, Q14/15 agreed to update G.874.1 to amend the specification of ApplicationIdentifier with the following additional text:



If the ApplicationIdentifierType is STANDARD, the value of PrintableString represents a standard application code as defined in the ITU-T Recommendations. If the ApplicationIdentifierType is PROPRIETARY, the first six characters of the PrintableString must contain the Hexadecimal representation of an OUI assigned to the vendor whose implementation generated the Application Identifier; the remaining octets of the PrintableString are unspecified.



Paul Doolan had an I-D "https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-doolan-proprietary-ac-00" to the last IETF meeting with the similar proposal.



Regards,

Kam

Subject: [CCAMP] Vendor-Specific Application Code in draft-ietf-ccamp-rwa-wson-encode



Hi,



I appreciate this discussion, but I am not seeing a specific conclusion from it.



The current I-D makes (IMHO) the Vendor-Specific Application Code unusable. I offered three options:



1 This value is only to be used when it is known that all devices

   participating in a network have the same understanding of

   the content of the Vendor-Specific Application Code field.

   How this knowledge is achieved is outside the scope of this

   document



2 When this value is set, the first 32 (or 48) bits of the Vendor-

  Specific Application Code field contain an Enterprise Number

  (or OUI) that defines the context in which the remainder of

  that field is interpreted.



3 Remove the option to include a Vendor-Specific Application

   Code field.



If the WG could please pick one of these and help Young to update the document.



Thanks,

Adrian
