XMPP-IoT an open solution for things

A demo and talk around using XMPP to create open scalable and secure IoT systems between peers in different domains

The XMPP community has since 2013 been working to enable the federated XMPP network to support Internet of Things (IoT). In this Demo/Talk, we will go through the initiative, showing how individual devices, and larger systems can interact cross domains in a secure interoperable environment.

The XMPP-IoT initiative is an Internet of Things solution from the XMPP standards foundation XSF. It consists of several extensions to the common known XMPP instant messaging standard.

One of the core values of the technology is that XMPP already has a large federated server to server infrastructure for messaging. Using this will create an open interoperable middleware for IoT. Where any device in a domain freeley can choose to interact with anybody else through the federation and friendship mechanisms, just as the chat network is used today. Using standard XML creates good interoperability possibilities and during 2014 the xmpp network also upgraded to demand participants in the network to enforce encryption both server to server and client to server to increase security.

Agenda: Demo of live devices locally and on the web. -The audience is invited to interact with them during the talk through phones and laptops An intro to the core concepts, reading and writing values in devices. A discussion on the security, scalability and interoperability, distributed vs. centralized solutions. If interest and time exist we will touch on EXI to create XML compression.
