Electricity Metering Data Exchange – The DLMS/COSEM Suite Part 5-3:DLMS/COSEM Application Layer
|Publication Date:||1 January 2019|
This part of IEC 62056 specifies the DLMS/COSEM application layer in terms of structure, services and protocols for DLMS/COSEM clients and servers, and defines rules to specify the DLMS/COSEM communication profiles.
It defines services for establishing and releasing application associations, and data communication services for accessing the methods and attributes of COSEM interface objects, defined in IEC 62056-6-2 using either logical name (LN) or short name (SN) referencing.
Annex A (normative) defines how to use the COSEM application layer in various communication profiles. It specifies how various communication profiles can be constructed for exchanging data with metering equipment using the COSE M interface model, and what are the necessary elements to specify in each communication profile. The actual, media-specific communication profiles are specified in separate parts of the IEC 62056 series.
Annex B (normative) specifies the SMS short wrapper.
Annex C (normative) specifies the gateway protocol.
Annex D Annex E and Annex F (informative) include encoding examples for APDUs.
Annex G (normative) provides NSA Suite B elliptic curves and domain parameters.
Annex H (informative) provides an example of an End entity signature certificate using P-256 signed with P-256.
Annex I (normative) specifies the use of key agreement schemes in DLMS/COSEM.
Annex J (informative) provides examples of exchanging protected xD LMS APDUs between a third party and a server.
Annex K (informative) lists the main technical changes in this edition of the standard.
