=== Eclipse IoT Testbeds: review strategy and next steps. ===
 +
Work on a set of industry oriented (vertical solutions) to showcase a technical solution and showcase the Eclipse projects and vendor ecosystem.
 +
Eclipse IoT Members working together to set-up the testbed and create a demo that runs 24/7 on the Eclipse servers
 +
More details: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1nmdi-cmw_O-7W2qZKRHMN-3gw0WHxE75llcV0nMhS-U/edit?usp=sharing
 +
Proposed Testbed scenario around Asset Tracking Management: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1KF7yxv5Dnk6b2a574HPtU5pHR5q7wvsT4skKjGDz1Q4/edit?usp=sharing
 +
There are many options for collaboration
  
* Kai and Jens have been proposed as PMC co-lead
+
*Dan Gross: Samsung interested in participating - Kura gateway using ARTIK.
* Kai: what would become of the IoT WG calls?
+
*Laurent Lagosanto: Potential use case for Eclipse Edje.  
** WG is about marketing efforts, how to build a stack for the industry, ... so the WG would definitely still exist, and call schedule would remain the same
+
*David Bericat: Excited and look forward to working with everyone.
* Each project leader would be invited to be a member of the PMC
+
* Ian is volunteering to update the draft charter that we have on the wiki https://wiki.eclipse.org/IoT/M2MIWG/TLP_Charter_Draft
+
  
== Deployment ==
+
'''Next Steps''': Stay tuned, we will be updating the group at large and scheduling individual meetings.
  
* The Eclipse Marketplace will have an IoT category that can be used for promoting projects' p2 repositories
+
=== 2. MQTT 5: Update from Ian Craggs / James Sutton on what’s in MQTT 5 and the expected impact on Eclipse Paho / Mosquitto and downstream adopters. ===
** {{bug|433975}} tracks the addition of the IoT category to the marketplace
+
'''Big set of changes:'''
** ODA for Kura, SmartHome designer, ... are good candidates for inclusion on the marketplace
+
*Use of the publish/subscribe message pattern which provides one-to-many message distribution and decoupling of applications.
 +
*A messaging transport that is agnostic to the content of the payload.
 +
*Three qualities of service for message delivery:
 +
**At most once", where messages are delivered according to the best efforts of the operating environment. Message loss can occur. This level could be used, for example, with ambient sensor data where it does not matter if an individual reading is lost as the next one will be published soon after.
 +
**At least once", where messages are assured to arrive but duplicates can occur.
 +
**"Exactly once", where messages are assured to arrive exactly once. This level could be used, for example, with billing systems where duplicate or lost messages could lead to incorrect charges being applied.
 +
*A small transport overhead and protocol exchanges minimized to reduce network traffic.
 +
*A mechanism to notify interested parties when an abnormal disconnection occurs.
 +
 +
'''Notes from the meeting:'''
 +
*Any request sent (and reply received) can have embedded metadata. This will be used for e.g letting a publisher know about *what* happened to the packet in addition to just acknowledging it
 +
**The CONNECT packet can contain information regarding what QoS are supported by the server
 +
**Supporting QoS 2 on the server is not mandatory anymore
 +
**Scalability
 +
*It will affect the Paho client and so a new Paho client will be created.
 +
**Improve API
 +
**Feedback from community
 +
**Work nicely with the new MQTT 5 features
 +
*The complete move will take a while, MQTT 3 will not go away anytime soon. It will be a parallel process. The previous versions of the client will be maintained. Some users might choose to use MQTT 3 since it’s more lightweight.
  
=== Raspberry Pi ===
+
'''IMPORTANT:''' Get your feedback in as soon as possible, because in a few months it will be finalized, so review the specifications. View working draft 10 dated January 4: https://www.oasis-open.org/committees/documents.php?num_per_wg=10&wg_abbrev=mqtt
  
* Benjamin is working with IP team to make sure Eclipse projects can build binaries for the Raspberry Pi
+
=== 3. PMC topics: project documentation, build machines, Docker, … ===
* We should provide a landing page for Raspberry Pi developers, that would provide instructions and pointers to download and install Eclipse IoT technology on Raspberry Pi

===Presentation new project proposal: Eclipse Ditto (Digital Twins) ===
 +
'''Presenter: Gerald Glocker, Bosch SI'''
  
* Java for IoT launch at JavaOne
+
Bosch will be proposing a new project called “Eclipse Ditto” soon for managing state of Digital Twins. Hopefully the proposal will be made next week.
** Review [[Launch_Plan_for_IoT_Java|wiki page]]
+
The Ditto Project will be a mediator between IoT Devices and the state of their Digital Twins.  
** Discuss content to create, demos, ...
+
Digital Twin is not really a fixed term. Bosch views Digital Twin as is a holistic view of all capabilities and aspects of a device/product asset including its digital representation.
* Marketing around MQTT post interop testing day
+
Ultimate goal is to use the digital twin as a service. There would be a higher level API to work with individual devices and you wouldn’t have to know what is happening in the background. The plan is to integrate with Eclipse Vorto and Eclipse Kapua.
* IoT WG opportunity to join [http://www.iiconsortium.org/ Industrial Internet Consortium]
+
* OM2M sandbox
+
  
== Participants ==
+
Read the one-page: https://wiki.eclipse.org/File:Ditto_Project.png
  
* Benjamin, Eclipse Foundation
+
*Questions:
* Thomas, SmartHome
+
Can changes to the state be made on the device of the twin, or is it only one way? The state of the device could be in both directions. Changes to the state on the device or the digital twin would change the state of the other one.
* Jens, Eclipse SCADA
+
A twin is not necessarily 1:1 device, a twin can represent many things (device + JVM + …)
* Ian, Eclipse Foundation
+
* Wes, Eurotech
+
* Kris, Actuate
+
* Lynn, Actuate
+
* Hilary, Eurotech
+
* Anne, bitreactive
+
* Virgil, Actuate
+
* Mahdi, OM2M
+
  
== Java for IoT launch ==
+
Project Proposal: https://projects.eclipse.org/proposals/eclipse-ditto
  
* Eclipse Fdn will have a booth at JavaOne
+
=== Presentation by CEA-List on Model Design Environment for IoT ===
* Eurotech will have a booth too
+
'''Presenter: Shuai li CEA-List'''
* bitreactive is interested in being involved with the demo
+
  
=== Demo ===
+
*Slides: https://wiki.eclipse.org/File:S3P-IoTModelingExecution_CEA_Primstech_MicroEJ-final.pdf
 +
*Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JqAPRH0bfU
 +
*For more details, contact Shuai li from CEA-List.
  
* We should try to have an overall integrated demo, that would be across several booth (eg. Eclipse Fdn for the core demo, Actuate for the reporting, Eurotech for the HW, ...)
+
=== Update on Testbeds ===
* ACTION ITEM: Benjamin to draft an outline of a demo scenario
+
'''Presenter Benjamin Cabé'''
  
=== Cookbook ===
+
Testbeds aim to showcase the software stack available from our open source projects, as well as the various offers that the WG members provide on top if it (cloud solutions, analytics platforms, hardware, integration services, …).
  
* Series of short articles, how-tos, ...
+
The first testbed will be a solution for Asset Tracking Management, more specifically tracking the delivery of valuable parcels. The end-to-end solution will comprise embedded sensors that can be attached to the parcels to monitor e.g temperature or vibration, IoT gateways in order to collect the sensor data (for example inside the delivery truck), process it, and report it to a cloud backend where it can be further analyzed, or made available to 3rd party apps. Members currently participating: Red Hat + Eurotech
  
== Marketing around MQTT ==
+
A wiki page describes the solution https://wiki.eclipse.org/IoT/Testbeds/Asset_Tracking_Management and will be completed as other members jump on the train to extend the code scenario with their respective solutions.
 +
The code to replicate and demonstrate the testbed will be shared through https://github.com/eclipselabs/eclipseiot-testbed-assettracking.
  
* Following the MQTT interop testing day, several attendees have expressed interest in doing more marketing efforts around MQTT
+
Participation to the testbeds is open to any member of the IoT WG, and more details on the overall strategy are available at https://goo.gl/UeDekI.
  
== IIC ==
+
=== Eclipse IoT Day in San Jose and Unconference ===
 +
'''Presenter: Ian Skerrett'''
  
* IBM, GE, Cisco, AT&T, and others
+
We’re looking for use-case type speakers to present how their company uses Eclipse IoT projects. Last year at ECE 2016 we had a speaker from the Deutsche Bahn train system explain how Eclipse Paho and MQTT are used in their train systems.
* IIC won't provide standards, they are more about influencing existing standards / open-source communities with requirements
+
* IIC aims at building testbeds for IoT solutions
+
* Ian explains that cross-membership is being considered (Eclipse Fdn to join IIC and the other way around)
+
** This also means opportunities to have joint meetings and joint events too
+
  
== OM2M sandbox ==
+
Ideally the speaker would be from the Bay area since this is short notice. Please let us know if you know anyone that could be a good candidate.
  
* ACTION ITEM: Mahdi to work with Benjamin and IT on setting up an OM2M sandbox
+
=== Eclipse Leshan Press Release ===
 +
'''Presenter: Ian Skerrett'''
  
= April 22, 2014 (Project Leader Call) =
+
Today, February 15, we issued a press release about Eclipse Leshan and Eclipse Waakama “Eclipse IoT Announces Support for OMA LightweightM2M 1.0 Device Management Standard” Read it here: http://www.eclipse.org/org/press-release/20170215_lwm2m.php
  
== Agenda ==  
+
=== IoT World plans ===
# Review plans for Java stack launch  - Launch plan
+
'''Presenter: Ian Skerrett'''
# Build support for Windows and OS/X  - Reference bug 415757
+
# New sandbox servers for CoAP and Lightweight M2M
+
# Other questions and issues from project leaders
+
  
== Participants ==
+
Eclipse IoT will have a booth at IoT World and would like to coordinate with other members. We won’t be doing the pavilion since not enough members wanted to participate, but we will get in touch soon to partner with interested members, such as IOTRACKS, that showed interest in participating.

=== IoT Developer Survey ===  
* Review [[https://wiki.eclipse.org/Launch_Plan_for_IoT_Java draft plan]]
+
'''Presenter: Roxanne Joncas'''
** Discussion about what are the packages and key deliverables. It was decided we have two main deliverables: 1) A set of foundation building blocks for IoT Java developers, including Paho, Calfornium, Kura and Concierge. 2) Solutions for IoT, including a solution for Industrial IoT in Eclipse SCADA and a solution for home automation in Eclipse SmartHome. These solutions make use of the foundation building blocks.  NOTE: OM2M might be another solution for Telecos?
+
** Discussion about the demos. The target will be to have at least 3 demos: 1) Green house demo that shows the foundation building blocks using Kura, MQTT, CoAP, etc. 2) Eclipse SmartHome demos and 3) Eclipse SCADA demo. The goal is to show each of these demos sharing data via MQTT and CoAP. Also show a consistent programming model using OSGi and Concierge.
+
** Discussion about deployment targets. Initial target will be Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone but this might need to be refined.
+
** ACTION ITEM: Ian will update the plan based on this discussion.
+
  
== Build Support for Windows and OS/X ==
+
On February 7, we launched the third annual IoT Developer Survey. Please take the time to complete the survey and to share it with your coworkers and community.
* Existing bug [[https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=415757 415757]] captures the requirement for build machines for non-Java projects but we need to capture what other IoT projects have this requirement.
+
*Link to promote/share: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/iotsurvey2017eclipseiot
* ACTION ITEM: Benjamin to include this requirement in his deployment infrastructure document.
+
*Graphic for promotion: https://wiki.eclipse.org/File:Iotsurveypartners.png
  
== Update on Concierge ==
 
* Jans provides an update on the development plan for Concierge.
 
** R5 compatibility expect in the next month. Two key issues raised:
 
# EMF dependency on Equinox blocks projects like SmartHome from using Concierge. Bug [[https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=328227 328227]] is tracking this issue.
 
# Dependency Services is not implemented in Concierge. Kura makes use of DS so we need to identify what services are required. ACTION ITEM: Marco will open a bug on Concierge to track the requirements.

* Signing
+
== Agenda ==
** Eclipse SCADA is building RPM and DEB packages already
+
=== Presentation from the Eclipse Titan team at Ericsson ===
** There is no proper solution for signing such packages which need to be signed using gpg
+
'''Presenter: György Réthy'''
*** '''ACTION ITEM''': Benjamin to coordinate with Eclipse Webmaster to discuss the opportunity of using gpg for signing linux packages
+
** It appears interesting to provide debian or rpm package repositories at Eclipse in a central way
+
*** '''ACTION ITEM''': Benjamin to coordinate with Eclipse Webmaster to discuss thoughts on package repos.
+
  
== Demo ==
+
Eclipse Titan is a tool built around the TTCN-3 testing standard, and it is very relevant for IoT as it can be used to test MQTT, CoAP, oneM2M, etc. communication scenarios. It was created by Ericsson 15 years ago and has been used internally ever since. It was open sourced 2 years ago at the Eclipse Foundation.
 +
*oneM2MTestter version 1.0 has been released
 +
*No need to learn a new language
 +
*Pilot with CoAP for modeling Testing
  
* Ian explained that it would be great to have a nice demonstration of our Java story for JavaOne in September
+
Question: Can you execute it in a headless mode? Yes, command line tools is the controller. There are also Eclipse plugins available for test executive that control the command line component.  
* Idea would be to start collecting thoughts for a really compelling Java story, and start producing articles, demos, tutorials, ... for JavaOne
+
* Kai Kreuzer details his vision for a SmartHome demo
+
** already discussing with Jan from Concierge to get SmartHome running on Concierge
+
** Paho is already being used, if Moquette comes to Eclipse SmartHome could also repackage an MQTT broker
+
** Kai discussing with Marco on how to integrate w/ Kura
+
* Jens explains that SCADA also plans on doing a demo together with eTrice and 4DIAC, targetting end-Sept
+
** demo would be something more industrial, using Modbus
+
* Scott Lewis described that ECF's implementation of standards-based OSGi Remote Services currently runs on Concierge (or any R5 OSGi framework), and that ECF has an [http://www.eclipse.org/ecf/NewAndNoteworthy.html MQTT remote services provider] currently based upon the [http://www.eclipse.org/paho Paho Java Client].  Given this, and the [https://wiki.eclipse.org/ECF existing tutorials and examples], it would be straightforward to put together a JavaOne demo...perhaps even for/with SmartHome...based upon Concierge, OSGi Remote Services, and MQTT...with standardization/interoperability being operative at all levels (OSGi framework, remoting/distribution, and messaging protocol/transport).
+
* '''ACTION ITEM''': Ian will put together a plan of what could be done for JavaOne
+
** Of course projects will have to be willing to provide support and help on actually implementing demos
+
  
== Misc ==
+
More information is available in the slides.
 +
*Slides: https://wiki.eclipse.org/File:Titan@EclipseIoTWG_20170301.pdf
  
* Mattias explains he's now ready to contribute Californium to Eclipse, the current code base being now "frozen" after successful participation to IETF CoAP interop testing event.
+
=== Eclipse Foundation Security policy ===
* Kai is interested in having CoAP support in SmartHome
+
'''Presenter: Ian Skerrett '''
* Mahdi lets us know that two students are currently working on 1/ a CoAP Californium binding in OM2M and 2/ an Eclipse SCADA integration
+
  
* Everyone is invited to use the WG mailing list to post updates on cross-IoT-project work on the mailing list to encourage collaboration and sharing of knowledge
+
Security is obviously a key concern for IoT so we would like to make sure everyone is familiar with the Security Policy in place at the Eclipse Foundation, and that all projects implement appropriate to let their users know how to report security issues, and know how to handle them.
  
* Note: JavaOne CfP ends on Apr15: http://www.oracle.com/javaone/call-for-papers/index.html
+
There is a security team at the Eclipse Foundation, Jens Reimann and Julien Vermillard are on this team to represent IoT.  
  
= February 11, 2014 =
+
One of the problems: On Bugzilla, you can mark a bug as private and only the security team will see it and assign it from appropriate project leaders. For projects that use GitHub issues, there isn’t a way to make an issue private. These projects need a link on their site that instructs users to open any security vulnerability bugs on Buzgilla.
  
== Agenda ==
+
All vulnerabilities will eventually need to be made public and the goal is to resolve any vulnerability within *3 months*. After 3 months, the vulnerability will be madepublic.
  
* Live demos on the website
+
*Questions can be sent to security@eclipse.org
* Ecosystem promotion on the website
+
*Next steps: Ian will talk to Wayne and get more concrete next steps.
* Eclipse IoT/M2M Rebranding update
+

=== Eclipse IoT Day in San Jose and Unconference ===
 +
'''Presenter: Ian Skerrett'''
  
* Benjamin Cabé
+
We’re looking for use-case type speakers to present how their company uses Eclipse IoT projects. Last year at ECE 2016 we had a speaker from the Deutsche Bahn train system explain how Eclipse Paho and MQTT are used in their train systems.
* Mattias Kovatsch
+
* David Sciamma
+
* Julien Vermillard
+
* Jens Reimann
+
* Andy Piper
+
* Jurgen Rose
+
* Ian Skerrett
+
* Hilary Tomasson
+
  
== Live demos ==
+
Ideally the speaker would be from the Bay area since this is short notice. Please let us know if you know anyone that could be a good candidate.
  
* The Eclipse IoT website should help demonstrate and showcase the open-source IoT technologies available at Eclipse. Benjamin suggests that project leads should think about the demo they'd have to contribute
+
For the IoT WG Meeting, feel free to suggest guest speakers. We already invited the OMA Group to give an update on LWM2M.
* Jens: SCADA team has a limited bandwidth to work on a live demonstrator over the next couple weeks
+
* Eurotech
+
** It's been discussed to try to have an always running version of the people counter. Hilary will synchronize with Marco
+
* Mattias: it is hard to provide live/web demos of CoAP. Video would be an option
+
** A test server could be hosted on iot.eclipse.org, and you could download Copper for Firefox (CoAP plugin) for doing some tests
+
* Benjamin suggests to have videos of the projects that are diffcult to demonstrate live
+
  
* '''ACTION ITEM''': Hilary/Marco and Ian to discuss about people counter demo
+
=== IoT Developer Survey ===
* '''ACTION ITEM''': Ian to ping Bitreactive regarding what demo content they would have
+
'''Presenter: Roxanne Joncas'''
* '''ACTION ITEM''': Benjamin to follow up with Mattias to setup a CoAP sandbox server at eclipse.org
+
  
== Ecosystem promotion on the website ==
+
On February 7, we launched the third annual IoT Developer Survey. Please take the time to complete the survey and to share it with your coworkers and community.

* After a discussion between Hilary and Ian, it's agreed to rework the page to list the Steering Committee members at the top of the page
+
* Ian: each member company needs to provide product description, and company description
+
* Mattias: could we provide an overview of the building blocks that are part of the ecosystem?
+
* Ian: we need to create a better presentation of what the projects do together
+
  
* '''ACTION ITEM''': Benjamin to update ecosystem webpage to list SC members at the top
+

== Eclipse IoT/M2M Rebranding update ==
+
== Agenda ==
 +
=== Hono Update ===
 +
'''Presenter: Kai Hudalla'''
 +
*0.5 M6 Milestone of Hono released this week.
 +
*3-4 weeks in between each release. It’s about continuously improving the system. Working on the telemetry system right now. Stability and resilience has improved, when services fail - how do they reconnect and start working without manual interference.
 +
*Hackathon in Berlin at Bosch Connected World. Over 100 devices connected to a Hono instance to provide an API and build their solution on top of that. It was pretty successful. It was great because they users could focus on how to use the data, instead of how to connect.
 +
*Finish up the remaining work around security and authorization to have a first 0.5 release with the full telemetry implementation ready in the summer.
 +
*Rest + MQTT Adapter and custom ones to connect to LORA 1, but this one not standardized. Bosch camera (HTTP, but not RESTful).
  
* Ian provides the group with an updated on the Eclipse IoT rebranding
 
** Logos are available for anyone to use: https://wiki.eclipse.org/IOT/Resources#Eclipse_IoT_logo
 
** Website: we didn't really redo it, just renamed M2M->IoT, and updated the logo
 
** Wiki has been moved to http://wiki.eclipse.org/IoT
 
** Still TODO is renaming the mailing-list
 
  
* '''ACTION ITEM''': Ian to create iot-wg mailing-list and subscribe everybody who's on m2m-iwg to this new list
+
=== Review IoT Developer Survey Results ===
 +
'''Presenter: Ian Skerrett '''
 +
*Why isn’t automotive a top industry?
 +
*Hard to get customers to buy in to the security
 +
*It’s not cheap, and no one wants to pay for it
 +
*If it’s a feature, it’s taken for granted
 +
**We would have to check Node.js and JavaScript (in future remove Node.js)
 +
*Discrepancy between Linux and ARM on constrained devices - people seem to have answered they run Linux on constrained devices while the dominant architecture seems to be very constrained ARM Cortex-M architectures.
 +
*Slide #32 Security Boot to Secured boot

== LWM2M - David & Hatem ==
+
== Security policies for IoT projects - Jens Reimann ==
 +
We have been doing some work on the security policies.
  
* LWM2M is an OSS implementation of OMA LWM2M
+
Changes:
* David is involved in Device Management technologies at OMA
+
*New projects should know that there are security policies at the Eclipse Foundation
* LWM2M targets IoT devices
+
*Encourage projects to put a link directing users to detailed information to report security issues against Eclipse IoT projects.
* In June 2013 a first open-source version of lwm2m was released on github, see https://github.com/01org/liblwm2m
+
*New mandatory field = reporting security issues for Eclipse IoT projects in the release review. If there are none, just say none, but if there are just list them. If you can’t list them right away, you can just put the bugzilla link that is not publicly viewable to users.
* Project proposed at Eclipse in Dec-2013
+
*We will write this new information down so new and existing projects know how to do it and will send an email to inform projects how to proceed
* '''Status and Next steps''':
+
** Creation review to be scheduled soon
+
  
== Eclipse SmartHome - Thomas ==
+
== Update on a new IoT WG charter and Steering Committee - Ian Skerrett ==
 +
*With each Working Group at the Eclipse Foundation, there is a steering committee that helps make decisions. We used to have one when the working group was called M2M, but it didn’t work out for many reasons. We would like to relaunch it to make sure that the things we are producing are in agreement with what the overall community wants.
 +
*We need to define roles and responsibilities in the charter.
 +
*If the community doesn’t agree on something eventually the Steering Committee can help.
  
* UI, rules, persistence services, etc. for controlling and automating things
+
== Plans for IoT World - Roxanne Joncas ==
* Eclipse SmartHome is created
+
*Booth at the event, demoing the testbeds and Eclipse IoT Projects
* There are many Eclipse projects that SmartHome is interested in collaborating with:
+
*If you’d like to demo, just let us know!
** Concierge
+
** Californium
+
** Paho is used already
+
** Kura
+
* '''Status and Next steps''':
+
** All CQs are submitted / some CQs are still waiting for approval but check-in was granted
+
** First binary build should be available "soon", most likely this quarter
+

== OM2M - Mahdi & Thierry ==
+
== Agenda ==
 +
=== Update on IoT initiatives at OSGi Alliance - a brief update on the work the OSGi Alliance is doing around IoT ===
 +
'''Presenter: Kai Hackbarth, Bosch'''
  
* OM2M is an open-source Java implementation of the ETSI M2M standard
+
OSGI IoT expert group started in 2015, before that there was a resident expert group focusing more on smart home, but we wanted to make it broader and include more IoT domains.
* Service capability layer for device, gateway, and network
+
*MQTT service adapter - receive MQTT messages and push them into OSGi EventAdmin. There is a connection to Eclipse Paho.
* RESTful design to enhance interop
+
*CoAP - import CoAP services and export OSGi services (making them available via CoAP).
* HTTP (Thinking about integrating CoAP and MQTT protocols).
+
*Liaison with OneM2M- Smart device template, HGI work started and closed last year, but OneM2M took over this work and is continuing it (Deutsche Telekom). Working on an IRP to see how we can use this with OSGi devices that already exist.
* OSGi-fication using Equinox, build using Maven Tycho
+
*OneM2M interworking - How to integrate an OSGi environment into a OneM2M ecosystem. Meeting coming up in June and a joint workshop with OneM2M to work out the requirements.
* '''Status and Next steps''':
+
*White paper on security including a testing platform, test several vulnerabilities from an OSGi environment and tells you which rules or best practices to apply.
** Trademark review pending, next step will be to schedule a creation review
+
*Other topics we are trying to push forward: real time Java, for example and specification around OPC-UA.
 +
*Everything is publicly available on GitHub: OSGi design
  
== Collaboration between projects ==
+
=== Planning for upcoming IoT Day in London, UK and Ludwigsburg, Germany  ===
 +
'''Presenter: Roxanne Joncas, Eclipse Foundation'''
  
* Andy: would that make sense to have kind of a cross-projects mailing-list?
+
We are planning two upcoming Eclipse IoT days this fall.
** Ian suggests to start with the m2m-iwg mailing-list for now
+
* Ian: is there a need for a build infrastructure for e.g building for the Raspberry Pi
+
** Jens: yes! building for Windows is also a requirement for EclipseSCADA
+
** Marco: would be great to have ready-to-use binaries for popular open-hw platforms
+
  
* Ian suggests to open bugs for capturing requirements from the projects about build infrastructure and the like
+
''' Eclipse IoT Day @ Thingmonk | Sept 11 - London, UK '''

* IoT day - April 9th
+
=== Update of sandbox servers for Eclipse IoT projects ===
** Idea would be to have a one-day webinar
+
'''Presenter: Benjamin Cabé, Eclipse Foundation'''
*** If projects have resources they would like to feature, this would be a great opportunity
+
*** '''ACTION''': Benjamin and Ian to put together a more formal plan about this event
+
  
* Ian reminds project leaders that if they need help with creating a logo for their projects, he can assist
+
Right now we have 3 active sandbox server services
 +
*MQTT (Mosquitto)
 +
*CoAP (Californium)
 +
*LWM2M (Leshan)
 +
 +
Would be good to have sandboxes for:
 +
'''Kapua (Jens Reimann)'''
 +
*Have one already set-up, but it’s running an old version of Kapua. Missing component is user management, so we need to set that up (create account, etc.). This is planned for the upcoming release so we will wait before updating it since the release is close. Timeframe: around 4 weeks from now.
 +
*We will post this on iot.eclipse.org
  
* Ian: it would be great if by the end of 2014 this group would be able to provide a "ready-to-use" platform for IoT
+
'''Hono (Kai Hudalla)'''
 +
*Sandbox for hackathon, can we port it? We want to set it up. Main issue is making sure that people can use it and use their devices themselves and also get data from their devices without interfering too much with each other. It’s closely connected to authorization and connection and that is already implemented, but I would like to wait until we have this implemented in a more elegant way. Timeframe: 4-6 weeks
 +
*We need access to a VM that already has Docker or Kubernetes support.
 +
*Benjamin will look at whether webmaster can provide a Container Engine setup vs. vanilla Compute Engine VM.
  
= January 14, 2014 =
+
'''Unide'''
 +
*The Unide team already has a google machine and will setup their sandbox shortly.

* IoT events for the beginning of 2014:
+
*Last white paper (3 stacks) was very successful, pulled together what our community/ecosystem is about and also helped the industry understand what is need to build IoT solutions.
** [https://fosdem.org/2014/ FOSDEM], (Feb 1-2, 2014)
+
*We want to do something similar for Industry 4.0 / Smart Manufacturing, problem, what solutions we need to look at, road map for the future.
** [[Eclipse_IoT_Day_Grenoble_2014|Eclipse IoT day Grenoble]] (Feb. 19, 2014),

*The feedback has been very positive. Helps us talk to the wider industry about what we are doing.
 +
*Current testbed (Asset Tracking Management) was launched at Red Hat Summit. Well received and was demoed onsite. Red Hat, Codenvy, Azul Systems, Samsung, Eurotech. Many different demos at the show so people could see data coming in from different assets and view different parts of the demo. All the code is hosted on GitHub and is open source. Users can look at the code and see how it’s running in the gateway and the cloud (leveraging Kapua), check how it’s connected to sensors, etc.)
 +
*Next steps: Improving the documentation for the current Asset Tracking Management Testbed. We would welcome your help to help us review and contribute to the documentation.
 +
*We will be working on other testbeds, the next scenario is around industrial automation / smart manufacturing and leverage other technologies that weren’t necessarily covered in the first testbed. Feat maybe PPMP, OPC-UA, Hono. Work on nice dashboards to see everything like data display and analysis in a nice way. Unide is working on visualization so that could be leveraged with Kapua.
 +
*Benjamin is writing an outline/strawman to visualize how it will look like but please share your ideas and we will collaborate to make all the pieces fit together over the next months.
  
* Discussion on potential events
+
=== Review of Eclipse IoT participation in IoT World last week ===
** Eurotech will present Kura during IoT Day in Grenoble
+
'''Presenter: Ian Skerrett, Eclipse Foundation'''
** Marco will see if Eurotech ppl from London are interested in attending FOSDEM in Brussels Feb 1-2.
+
  
== Project leads sync call ==
+
* It was a great event (about 14,000) in Santa Clara, California on May 16-18
 +
*By far the largest IoT Show in North America and so it means a lot of exposure
 +
*The knowledge of what we are doing continues to rise. People already understand that we do IoT and have been using Kura, MQTT (Paho/Mosquitto) so they are already part of the user community. One person loved hawkBit and said they launched their product with it!
 +
*The show included a lot of vendors (hardware, gateways) there was a lot more talk of edge computing.
 +
*Analytics will becoming equally important so we are trying to encourage vendors to join the WG.
 +
*With Red Hat we had a passport game (Azul, Eurotech and Red Hat) it was effective to get people to all the booths and showed nice collaboration between members
 +
*Testbed approach, people wanted to buy it. UPS and FedEx came up and said it was interesting and got the point that we have technology that they could be using.
 +
*IOTRACKS demoed with us and they were also very busy! They focused on Eclipse ioFog and got great exposure. Keep it in mind for next year, we have a spot for you.
  
* Benjamin and Ian will coordinate with project leads to invite them to the call in two weeks time to share progress and experiences with the Eclipse process

Agenda

Eclipse IoT Testbeds: review strategy and next steps.

Work on a set of industry oriented (vertical solutions) to showcase a technical solution and showcase the Eclipse projects and vendor ecosystem. Eclipse IoT Members working together to set-up the testbed and create a demo that runs 24/7 on the Eclipse servers More details: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1nmdi-cmw_O-7W2qZKRHMN-3gw0WHxE75llcV0nMhS-U/edit?usp=sharing Proposed Testbed scenario around Asset Tracking Management: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1KF7yxv5Dnk6b2a574HPtU5pHR5q7wvsT4skKjGDz1Q4/edit?usp=sharing There are many options for collaboration

  • Dan Gross: Samsung interested in participating - Kura gateway using ARTIK.
  • Laurent Lagosanto: Potential use case for Eclipse Edje.
  • David Bericat: Excited and look forward to working with everyone.

Next Steps: Stay tuned, we will be updating the group at large and scheduling individual meetings.

2. MQTT 5: Update from Ian Craggs / James Sutton on what’s in MQTT 5 and the expected impact on Eclipse Paho / Mosquitto and downstream adopters.

Big set of changes:

  • Use of the publish/subscribe message pattern which provides one-to-many message distribution and decoupling of applications.
  • A messaging transport that is agnostic to the content of the payload.
  • Three qualities of service for message delivery:
    • At most once", where messages are delivered according to the best efforts of the operating environment. Message loss can occur. This level could be used, for example, with ambient sensor data where it does not matter if an individual reading is lost as the next one will be published soon after.
    • At least once", where messages are assured to arrive but duplicates can occur.
    • "Exactly once", where messages are assured to arrive exactly once. This level could be used, for example, with billing systems where duplicate or lost messages could lead to incorrect charges being applied.
  • A small transport overhead and protocol exchanges minimized to reduce network traffic.
  • A mechanism to notify interested parties when an abnormal disconnection occurs.

Notes from the meeting:

  • Any request sent (and reply received) can have embedded metadata. This will be used for e.g letting a publisher know about *what* happened to the packet in addition to just acknowledging it
    • The CONNECT packet can contain information regarding what QoS are supported by the server
    • Supporting QoS 2 on the server is not mandatory anymore
    • Scalability
  • It will affect the Paho client and so a new Paho client will be created.
    • Improve API
    • Feedback from community
    • Work nicely with the new MQTT 5 features
  • The complete move will take a while, MQTT 3 will not go away anytime soon. It will be a parallel process. The previous versions of the client will be maintained. Some users might choose to use MQTT 3 since it’s more lightweight.

IMPORTANT: Get your feedback in as soon as possible, because in a few months it will be finalized, so review the specifications. View working draft 10 dated January 4: https://www.oasis-open.org/committees/documents.php?num_per_wg=10&wg_abbrev=mqtt

3. PMC topics: project documentation, build machines, Docker, …

Skipped this item - not enough PMC members on the call

4. Misc. updates

Open IoT Challenge: we will schedule a live hangout for project leads to answer any technical questions the participant may have. https://iot.eclipse.org/open-iot-challenge/

Agenda

Presentation new project proposal: Eclipse Ditto (Digital Twins)

Presenter: Gerald Glocker, Bosch SI

Bosch will be proposing a new project called “Eclipse Ditto” soon for managing state of Digital Twins. Hopefully the proposal will be made next week. The Ditto Project will be a mediator between IoT Devices and the state of their Digital Twins. Digital Twin is not really a fixed term. Bosch views Digital Twin as is a holistic view of all capabilities and aspects of a device/product asset including its digital representation. Ultimate goal is to use the digital twin as a service. There would be a higher level API to work with individual devices and you wouldn’t have to know what is happening in the background. The plan is to integrate with Eclipse Vorto and Eclipse Kapua.

Read the one-page: https://wiki.eclipse.org/File:Ditto_Project.png

  • Questions:

Can changes to the state be made on the device of the twin, or is it only one way? The state of the device could be in both directions. Changes to the state on the device or the digital twin would change the state of the other one. A twin is not necessarily 1:1 device, a twin can represent many things (device + JVM + …)

Presenter: Shuai li CEA-List

Update on Testbeds

Presenter Benjamin Cabé

Testbeds aim to showcase the software stack available from our open source projects, as well as the various offers that the WG members provide on top if it (cloud solutions, analytics platforms, hardware, integration services, …).

The first testbed will be a solution for Asset Tracking Management, more specifically tracking the delivery of valuable parcels. The end-to-end solution will comprise embedded sensors that can be attached to the parcels to monitor e.g temperature or vibration, IoT gateways in order to collect the sensor data (for example inside the delivery truck), process it, and report it to a cloud backend where it can be further analyzed, or made available to 3rd party apps. Members currently participating: Red Hat + Eurotech

A wiki page describes the solution https://wiki.eclipse.org/IoT/Testbeds/Asset_Tracking_Management and will be completed as other members jump on the train to extend the code scenario with their respective solutions. The code to replicate and demonstrate the testbed will be shared through https://github.com/eclipselabs/eclipseiot-testbed-assettracking.

Participation to the testbeds is open to any member of the IoT WG, and more details on the overall strategy are available at https://goo.gl/UeDekI.

Eclipse IoT Day in San Jose and Unconference

Presenter: Ian Skerrett

We’re looking for use-case type speakers to present how their company uses Eclipse IoT projects. Last year at ECE 2016 we had a speaker from the Deutsche Bahn train system explain how Eclipse Paho and MQTT are used in their train systems.

Ideally the speaker would be from the Bay area since this is short notice. Please let us know if you know anyone that could be a good candidate.

Eclipse Leshan Press Release

Presenter: Ian Skerrett

Today, February 15, we issued a press release about Eclipse Leshan and Eclipse Waakama “Eclipse IoT Announces Support for OMA LightweightM2M 1.0 Device Management Standard” Read it here: http://www.eclipse.org/org/press-release/20170215_lwm2m.php

IoT World plans

Presenter: Ian Skerrett

Eclipse IoT will have a booth at IoT World and would like to coordinate with other members. We won’t be doing the pavilion since not enough members wanted to participate, but we will get in touch soon to partner with interested members, such as IOTRACKS, that showed interest in participating.

Agenda

Presentation from the Eclipse Titan team at Ericsson

Presenter: György Réthy

Eclipse Titan is a tool built around the TTCN-3 testing standard, and it is very relevant for IoT as it can be used to test MQTT, CoAP, oneM2M, etc. communication scenarios. It was created by Ericsson 15 years ago and has been used internally ever since. It was open sourced 2 years ago at the Eclipse Foundation.

  • oneM2MTestter version 1.0 has been released
  • No need to learn a new language
  • Pilot with CoAP for modeling Testing

Question: Can you execute it in a headless mode? Yes, command line tools is the controller. There are also Eclipse plugins available for test executive that control the command line component.

More information is available in the slides.

Eclipse Foundation Security policy

Presenter: Ian Skerrett

Security is obviously a key concern for IoT so we would like to make sure everyone is familiar with the Security Policy in place at the Eclipse Foundation, and that all projects implement appropriate to let their users know how to report security issues, and know how to handle them.

There is a security team at the Eclipse Foundation, Jens Reimann and Julien Vermillard are on this team to represent IoT.

One of the problems: On Bugzilla, you can mark a bug as private and only the security team will see it and assign it from appropriate project leaders. For projects that use GitHub issues, there isn’t a way to make an issue private. These projects need a link on their site that instructs users to open any security vulnerability bugs on Buzgilla.

All vulnerabilities will eventually need to be made public and the goal is to resolve any vulnerability within *3 months*. After 3 months, the vulnerability will be madepublic.

  • Others who joined later

Agenda

Hono Update

Presenter: Kai Hudalla

  • 0.5 M6 Milestone of Hono released this week.
  • 3-4 weeks in between each release. It’s about continuously improving the system. Working on the telemetry system right now. Stability and resilience has improved, when services fail - how do they reconnect and start working without manual interference.
  • Hackathon in Berlin at Bosch Connected World. Over 100 devices connected to a Hono instance to provide an API and build their solution on top of that. It was pretty successful. It was great because they users could focus on how to use the data, instead of how to connect.
  • Finish up the remaining work around security and authorization to have a first 0.5 release with the full telemetry implementation ready in the summer.
  • Rest + MQTT Adapter and custom ones to connect to LORA 1, but this one not standardized. Bosch camera (HTTP, but not RESTful).


Review IoT Developer Survey Results

Presenter: Ian Skerrett

  • Why isn’t automotive a top industry?
  • Hard to get customers to buy in to the security
  • It’s not cheap, and no one wants to pay for it
  • If it’s a feature, it’s taken for granted
    • We would have to check Node.js and JavaScript (in future remove Node.js)
  • Discrepancy between Linux and ARM on constrained devices - people seem to have answered they run Linux on constrained devices while the dominant architecture seems to be very constrained ARM Cortex-M architectures.
  • Slide #32 Security Boot to Secured boot

Report: https://ianskerrett.wordpress.com/2017/04/19/iot-developer-trends-2017-edition/ Slides: https://www.slideshare.net/IanSkerrett/iot-developer-survey-2017

Proposal to Re-start IoT WG Steering Committee

Presenter: Ian Skerrett

  • Purpose of the Steering Committee: To provide executive-level strategy, review, and oversight to the Eclipse IoT Working Group.
  • Why do we need a steering committee? Who would be on the steering committee.
  • Highly debated during the call, you can follow the discussion on the IoT-WG mailing list.

Details: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jBYPe1bojxvX3aka2fKk1FAGfmghIV284NK4ttiWucw/edit?usp=sharing

Update of Eclipse IoT Open Testbeds

Presenter: Benjamin Cabé

  • Testbeds are doing great and will be announced in two weeks prior to the Red Hat Summit in Boston, May 2-4.
  • We will be hosting more testbeds in the future and every working group member is invited to participate or propose one.

Security policies for IoT projects - Jens Reimann

We have been doing some work on the security policies.

Changes:

  • New projects should know that there are security policies at the Eclipse Foundation
  • Encourage projects to put a link directing users to detailed information to report security issues against Eclipse IoT projects.
  • New mandatory field = reporting security issues for Eclipse IoT projects in the release review. If there are none, just say none, but if there are just list them. If you can’t list them right away, you can just put the bugzilla link that is not publicly viewable to users.
  • We will write this new information down so new and existing projects know how to do it and will send an email to inform projects how to proceed

Update on a new IoT WG charter and Steering Committee - Ian Skerrett

  • With each Working Group at the Eclipse Foundation, there is a steering committee that helps make decisions. We used to have one when the working group was called M2M, but it didn’t work out for many reasons. We would like to relaunch it to make sure that the things we are producing are in agreement with what the overall community wants.
  • We need to define roles and responsibilities in the charter.
  • If the community doesn’t agree on something eventually the Steering Committee can help.

Plans for IoT World - Roxanne Joncas

  • Booth at the event, demoing the testbeds and Eclipse IoT Projects
  • If you’d like to demo, just let us know!

IoT Day in London and Munich - Ian Skerrett

  • Eclipse IoT Day @ThingMonk will take place September 11 in London, UK http://thingmonk.com/
  • Should we do an IoT Day in Munich the week of Sept 11? General consensus is not to have an Eclipse IoT Munich is too close to ECE in September, maybe in February or have a presence in Spain.

Agenda

Update on IoT initiatives at OSGi Alliance - a brief update on the work the OSGi Alliance is doing around IoT

Presenter: Kai Hackbarth, Bosch

OSGI IoT expert group started in 2015, before that there was a resident expert group focusing more on smart home, but we wanted to make it broader and include more IoT domains.

  • MQTT service adapter - receive MQTT messages and push them into OSGi EventAdmin. There is a connection to Eclipse Paho.
  • CoAP - import CoAP services and export OSGi services (making them available via CoAP).
  • Liaison with OneM2M- Smart device template, HGI work started and closed last year, but OneM2M took over this work and is continuing it (Deutsche Telekom). Working on an IRP to see how we can use this with OSGi devices that already exist.
  • OneM2M interworking - How to integrate an OSGi environment into a OneM2M ecosystem. Meeting coming up in June and a joint workshop with OneM2M to work out the requirements.
  • White paper on security including a testing platform, test several vulnerabilities from an OSGi environment and tells you which rules or best practices to apply.
  • Other topics we are trying to push forward: real time Java, for example and specification around OPC-UA.
  • Everything is publicly available on GitHub: OSGi design

Planning for upcoming IoT Day in London, UK and Ludwigsburg, Germany

Presenter: Roxanne Joncas, Eclipse Foundation

We are planning two upcoming Eclipse IoT days this fall.

Eclipse IoT Day @ Thingmonk | Sept 11 - London, UK We hosted this event for the first time last year and it was great. It’s co-located with Thingmonk (Sept 12-13), a developer conference for people making IoT platforms.

Eclipse IoT Day @ ECE | Oct 24 - Ludwigsburg, Germany Third year we are hosting the event, last year was a success and we hope to make it even better this year.

  • Monday, Oct 23 - Eclipse IoT WG Meeting

Guest speakers Project Updates / Intros Collaboration Topics / Open Whiteboard

  • Tuesday, Oct 24 - IoT Day

Various expert speakers

  • Wednesday, Oct. 25 - IoT HackDay

Early planning stages All day event Hands-on experience Eclipse IoT technology. Opportunity for everyone to learn more about the ecosystem and to connect with other developers.

  • PC - Volunteers for IoT @ ECE

Thank you to: Istvan Rath, IncQuery Labs & Jens Reimann, Red Hat

CFPs are open Propose a talk for ECE IoT day on the EclipseCon Europe website. Talk ideas for Thingmonk iot@eclipse.org

Sponsorship Looking for sponsors for both events, email me roxanne@eclipse.org

Update of sandbox servers for Eclipse IoT projects

Presenter: Benjamin Cabé, Eclipse Foundation

Right now we have 3 active sandbox server services

  • MQTT (Mosquitto)
  • CoAP (Californium)
  • LWM2M (Leshan)

Would be good to have sandboxes for: Kapua (Jens Reimann)

  • Have one already set-up, but it’s running an old version of Kapua. Missing component is user management, so we need to set that up (create account, etc.). This is planned for the upcoming release so we will wait before updating it since the release is close. Timeframe: around 4 weeks from now.
  • We will post this on iot.eclipse.org

Hono (Kai Hudalla)

  • Sandbox for hackathon, can we port it? We want to set it up. Main issue is making sure that people can use it and use their devices themselves and also get data from their devices without interfering too much with each other. It’s closely connected to authorization and connection and that is already implemented, but I would like to wait until we have this implemented in a more elegant way. Timeframe: 4-6 weeks
  • We need access to a VM that already has Docker or Kubernetes support.
  • Benjamin will look at whether webmaster can provide a Container Engine setup vs. vanilla Compute Engine VM.

Unide

  • The Unide team already has a google machine and will setup their sandbox shortly.

Industry 4.0/Smart Manufacturing White Paper – we would like to start drafting a white paper to describe how Eclipse IoT projects can be used for Industry 4.0

Presenter: Ian Skerrett, Eclipse Foundation

  • Last white paper (3 stacks) was very successful, pulled together what our community/ecosystem is about and also helped the industry understand what is need to build IoT solutions.
  • We want to do something similar for Industry 4.0 / Smart Manufacturing, problem, what solutions we need to look at, road map for the future.
  • Volunteers to help with it as subject matter experts
  • Process: get a small group of people, draft outline, draft content, working group will review it and provide input.
  • Any volunteers? The following individuals volunteered during the call: James Kirkland (Red Hat), Dave Woodard (Eurotech), Dan Gross (Samsung)

Review of Eclipse IoT Open Testbeds Initiative

Presenter: Benjamin Cabé, Eclipse Foundation

  • The feedback has been very positive. Helps us talk to the wider industry about what we are doing.
  • Current testbed (Asset Tracking Management) was launched at Red Hat Summit. Well received and was demoed onsite. Red Hat, Codenvy, Azul Systems, Samsung, Eurotech. Many different demos at the show so people could see data coming in from different assets and view different parts of the demo. All the code is hosted on GitHub and is open source. Users can look at the code and see how it’s running in the gateway and the cloud (leveraging Kapua), check how it’s connected to sensors, etc.)
  • Next steps: Improving the documentation for the current Asset Tracking Management Testbed. We would welcome your help to help us review and contribute to the documentation.
  • We will be working on other testbeds, the next scenario is around industrial automation / smart manufacturing and leverage other technologies that weren’t necessarily covered in the first testbed. Feat maybe PPMP, OPC-UA, Hono. Work on nice dashboards to see everything like data display and analysis in a nice way. Unide is working on visualization so that could be leveraged with Kapua.
  • Benjamin is writing an outline/strawman to visualize how it will look like but please share your ideas and we will collaborate to make all the pieces fit together over the next months.

Review of Eclipse IoT participation in IoT World last week

Presenter: Ian Skerrett, Eclipse Foundation

  • It was a great event (about 14,000) in Santa Clara, California on May 16-18
  • By far the largest IoT Show in North America and so it means a lot of exposure
  • The knowledge of what we are doing continues to rise. People already understand that we do IoT and have been using Kura, MQTT (Paho/Mosquitto) so they are already part of the user community. One person loved hawkBit and said they launched their product with it!
  • The show included a lot of vendors (hardware, gateways) there was a lot more talk of edge computing.
  • Analytics will becoming equally important so we are trying to encourage vendors to join the WG.
  • With Red Hat we had a passport game (Azul, Eurotech and Red Hat) it was effective to get people to all the booths and showed nice collaboration between members
  • Testbed approach, people wanted to buy it. UPS and FedEx came up and said it was interesting and got the point that we have technology that they could be using.
  • IOTRACKS demoed with us and they were also very busy! They focused on Eclipse ioFog and got great exposure. Keep it in mind for next year, we have a spot for you.
