ASN.1 and OID Project
ASN.1 (Abstract Syntax Notation One)
–
–
–
–
A formal notation that is widely used for describing (binary or XMLencoded) data transmitted by telecommunications protocols
Project provides speakers and tutorial material to assist users of
ASN.1 within and outside of the ITU
Project maintains a freely accessible database of error-free,
compilable ASN.1 modules contained in ITU-T Recommendations and
some additional modules from ISO/IEC and IETF to facilitate
accurate implementation of protocols
Database: http://www.itu.int/ITU-T/asn1/database (>650 modules)
Object identifiers (OIDs) and associated registration
–
–
–
–
Many standards define objects for which unambiguous identification
is required (e.g., PKI, network management, directories, …); the OID
tree is a hierarchical naming structure for these objects that is
managed in a decentralized way
Recently extended to include identifiers in any natural language
Project helps people and organizations to set up a Registration
Authority for their OIDs (>25 Member States have been helped)
OID Repository: http://www.oid-info.com (gathers >93000 OIDs)

Future Work (I)
Improving security and trust in networks is a top imperative
for the ITU-T
It is essential to a have a SG focused on security with a
substantial and critical work program that will attract
technical security experts needed to advance the work
Need the right balance between centralized and distributed
work on security with effective coordination
Strengthened relationships and coordinated actions are
needed on cybersecurity with ITU-D and Secretary General
Excellent collaboration with other bodies on security has
been established (e.g., ISO/IEC JTC 1, OASIS, Liberty
Alliance, ...) and needs to be strengthened and broadened
Improved awareness is needed of SG 17 security material
and tools (highlighted by security Questionnaire responses)
SG 17 would benefit by increased participation from underrepresented regions

12
Future Work (II)
SG 17 proposed 16 Questions for the next study period,
including 1 new on service oriented architecture security
Associated with this work should be lead study group
responsibilities for Security, Identity management, and
Languages and description techniques
66 draft Recommendations are already under preparation for
approval in the next study period
All SG 17 leaders (except for IDN) are continuing their
responsibilities uninterrupted during the interregnum period
Security and ASN.1 & OID Projects as well as JCA-IdM and
JCA-CIT need to continue given their important contributions
Breakthrough is needed for the essential security work on
Identity, Identity management and Personally identifiable
information
Restructuring of WPs is essential to achieve stronger
integration of ASN.1, OID and Directory with core security

Conclusion
Participation to SG 17 has increased during the
study period to maintain well above 100 participants
SG 17 has successfully transitioned this study
period to security as its main focus with a core set
of security experts
Within security work, has significantly build-up
participation and energy in Identity Management
SG 17 has build strong relations with other key
bodies working on security and initiated numerous
collaborative efforts
SG 17 has promoted and disseminated ITU-T
security work (e.g., workshops, security roadmap);
its achievements are well recognized

Thank you!
Herbert Bertine is chairman of ITU-T Study Group 17. He has been
actively involved in the standards work of the ITU since 1975 and
has held senior leadership positions since 1980. He has devoted
extensive efforts in facilitating cooperation with SDOs. He
represents the ITU-T in ISO/IEC/ITU-T SAG on security and is the ITU-T liaison
officer to ISO/IEC JTC 1.
Herb also has been active in other arenas dealing with ICT standards including
ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 6 and ANSI. He was instrumental in developing the
collaborative procedures between ITU-T and JTC 1 (reflected in Rec. A.23) and in
establishing the cooperative procedures with the IETF.
Herb retired in November 2007. He was Director, Standards at Lucent
Technologies where he led Lucent’s standards efforts worldwide. He joined Bell
Laboratories in June 1965 and spent his career in communication technologies.
This included systems engineering work on modems, digital data systems, X.25
packet networks, open systems, and advanced communication systems. Since
1982, he had various responsibilities for corporate-wide standards management.
In October 2006, Herb was awarded the American National Standards Institute
(ANSI) Edward Lohse Information Technology Medal for outstanding technical and
managerial leadership in establishing international information technology and
telecommunications standards and the methods by which they are produced.
Herb has a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering degree and a Master of Electrical
Engineering degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He is a member Eta
Kappa Nu (EE Honor Society) and Tau Beta Pi (Engineering Honor Society) and of
