M-StoreOpen Standards Conformance
The base X.400 standards and ISPs (International Standard Profiles) are set by two bodies.
- The ITU (International Telecommunications Union) as a series of documents collectively referred to as X.400. There are a number of documents in this series (e.g., X.400, X.402, X.420).
- ISO (International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) as MOTIS (Message Oriented Text Interchange Systems) and the ISO/IEC 10021 series. These documents are equivalent (e.g., ISO/IEC 10021-7 is equivalent to X.420).
The ITU and ISO documents are technically aligned. There are some small differences because the ITU documents relate only to interconnection with public services, whereas the ISO/IEC documents also cover "local" issues. Isode supports these differences, which relate to different deployment situations, and do not affect interoperability. Conformance to X.400 base standards is listed below.
|ITU X.400||Message Handling System: System and Service Overview. ISO/IEC 10021-1, 1999|
|ITU X.411||Message Handling Systems (MHS): Message Transfer System: Abstract Service Definition and Procedures. ISO/IEC 10021-4, 1999|
|ITU X.413||Message Store: Abstract Service Definition. ISO/IEC 10021-5, 1999 (Note the MS service is supported, but not the MS(94) service)|
|ITU X.420||Message Handling Systems (MHS): Interpersonal Messaging System. ISO/IEC 10021-7, 1996|
There are two ITU/ISO Protocol Implementation and Conformance Statement (PICS) documents for M-Store X.400, that give a detailed specification of the X.400 services and protocol elements supported:
- Common Messaging: MS Access (P7) - AMH13. This specifies the core capabilities, common to all types of message content.
- IPM: Requirements for enhanced MS Access (P7) - AMH24. This specifies features specific to InterPersonal Messaging
M-Store also conform the the following standards for military messaging. ACPs (Allied Communications Publications) are issued by the CCEB (Combined Communications Electronics Board). STANAG documents are NATO standardization agreements.
