KYTC Certification System - Certification System Functionality
The 'Certification System' verifies that devices and applications meet standards for participation in the ITS environment. Particular requirements vary depending on the type of certification; applications may be certified for performance and adherence to standards or specifications; devices may be similarly certified, and will also typically be subject to security–related interrogation.
Functional Object: Certification of Applications
'Certification of Applications' verifies the performance and integrity of software for use in the ITS environment. It interacts with and monitors software in device configurations and verifies that the software is able to operate as specified; it may also certify that the software meets the requirements associated with particular services and should be entitled to application–specific credentials.
Functional Object: Certification of Devices
'Certification of Devices' verifies the performance, integrity and functionality of devices, including necessary firmware, for use in the ITS environment. It monitors software and hardware including radios, processors and tamper–related sensors to verify that the device and its operating software is able to operate as specified; it may also certify that the hardware and firmware meet the requirements associated with particular services and should be entitled to device–specific credentials.
