The mission of the OMG Internet Special Interest Group (ISIP) is to recommend development work needed to better align the OMG's Object Management Architecture (OMA) with the Internet, World Wide Web, and various Internet tools and facilities. It is intended to bring the potential of enhanced interoperability, reusability, application portability, etc. to the Internet based on OMG technologies. At the same time, the ISIG will bring challenges to the OMG from the Internet community in areas such as scalability, security, and mechanisms to make OMG technologies pervasive. This potential synergy can best be realized through cooperative efforts of the OMG, the Internet Society, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), and others.
The Internet SIG shall:
Work through the OMG Liaison Subcommittee to help provide a liaison, coordinating OMG with Internet based activities such as the Internet Society (including its component organizations: the Internet Activities Board (IAB) and the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)); the Digital Library Forum (DLF); the W3 Consortium (W3C); projects within the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA); the National Industrial Information Infrastructure Protocols Consortium (NIIIP); and other industry efforts working on both Internet and OMG technologies.
