APIs and Integration Protocols

General description

 

API's (and REST API's) need to be carefully protected through mechanisms limiting access on the basis of identity and authorizing and authenticating through managed and controlled mechanisms. Usually certificates and IP-addresses are being used to restrict access to API's, but a more granular approach is advisable from a Security Architecture perspective. Other architectures being used as Integratio Protocols in Digital Manufacturing Platforms are JSON (for its near real time capabilities) and MQ (message bus architectures). The letter being less secure, since it provides a continuous stream of information which is being sent to a destination. 


Specifics for Project Z-Fact0r | Zero-defect manufacturing strategies towards on-line production management for European factories

Description To do that we have brought together a total of thirteen (13) EU-based partners, representing both industry and academia, having ample experience in cutting-edge technologies and active presence in the
Organisation CENTRE FOR RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGY HELLAS CERTH
Comments The IIS and the Integration plan of the Z-Fact0r solution were based on the same APIs and protocols as the data exchange in the system.
 Integration Discipline and Incremental Strategy Result title Integration Discipline and Incremental Strategy
 Z-Fact0r middleware platform and components Result description The integration of the middleware with the multi sensor/actuator cloud will be achieved through the Device Managers which will allow an interoperable communication mechanism based on standardized protocols
 Techniques for product reworking Result comments While materials typically used are plastic, metal or concrete, nowadays AM technologies are expanding to include all kind of materials such as ceramic, nanocomposites, glass, and other.
