Verification results for IT standards: FireWire, ISO 11073, ANSI/HL7
This monograph on the verification of standards and§specifications applied in information technology§covers a lesser-researched but vital aspect of§standards and specification development §methodologies. §The book has undertaken a thorough review and study§of the application of formal testing methodologies to§the verification of standards and specifications and§describes in detail how these approaches can improved§the quality of computer networking and electronic§healthcare. Using the ubiquitous "FireWire" computer§device networking standard, the ISO/IEEE 1073§standard for connecting electronic medical devices§and the popular "Health Level 7" healthcare data§exchange standard as examples, the book demonstrates§that rigorous formal verification of the standards§and specifications can uncover previously unknown§flaws and shortcomings, so enabling improvements in§computer networking and medical care. This book fills§a gap in the research and application of standards§and specifications methods and is recommended to§anyone undertaking development work in this area.
