Abstract

   This document describes the standardization collaboration between the

   Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) and the Internet Engineering Task Force

   (IETF).

1.  Introduction

   This document contains a set of principles and guidelines that serves

   as the basis for establishing a cooperation framework between the

   Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) and the Internet Engineering Task Force

   (IETF).  This cooperation is intended to secure timely development of

   technical specifications that facilitate maximum interoperability

   with existing (fixed and mobile) Internet systems, devices, and

   protocols.

   Within the OMA, specific activities are undertaken through OMA

   working groups, each with an area of responsibility.  These

   activities are authorized, and their output is approved by, the OMA

   Technical Plenary.  The list of OMA working groups, OMA

   Specifications for public comment, the OMA work program, and publicly

   available working group drafts can be found at the OMA web site,

   <http://www.openmobilealliance.org>.

   Within the IETF, activities are undertaken within a framework of

   Areas, with specific activities being undertaken by working groups

   that are chartered within each Area.  Working group output is

   reviewed by the Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG) and

   published by the RFC-Editor.  IETF activities are based on a

   meeting schedules, and mailing lists are published on the IETF web

   site, <http://www.ietf.org>.

   The IETF and the OMA, are cooperating with a mutual desire to support

   the integrity of specifications and standards developed by each body.
