Internet of Things (IoT) market today has many proprietary, siloed solutions that do not interoperate and as a result market is very fragmented and moves slowly. Open Interconnect Consortium (OIC), an alliance of leading industry players, was formed to define an industry-standard specification and certification program for devices to securely and reliably discover and connect across multiple OSs, platforms, and technologies, the foundational capacity to enable the Internet of Things (IoT). Iotivity is an open source reference implementation of the OIC defined specification. The Iotivity SDK can be used to build IoT applications and the framework handles discovering and communication between the devices, ensuring security and reliability. Iotivity SDK, designed to runs on a spectrum of devices from resource-constrained embedded devices to rich platforms supporting multiple communication interfaces, can be used to build IoT applications.

This talk is an introduction to Iotivity to show how developers can leverage various Iotivity features to build IoT applications. Iotivity stack include a core library that handles discovery, connectivity, and security across various layer 2/3/4 transports and services library that offers value-added functionality for IoT applications - the focus of the talk is on the core library. Iotivity allows IoT applications to model "things" as resources, akin to HTTP, and a basic set of HTTP-like primitives GET/PUT/POST/DELETE can be used to access the resources. Additionally, Iotivity resource-model supports other features to observe changes in resources or manage groups of resources securely while being agnostic of the transport.
