ISO/IEC 24775-3:2014(E) defines profiles that are supported by profiles defined in the other parts of the ISO/IEC 24775 series. The first few clauses provide background material that helps explain the purpose and profiles and recipes (a subset of a profile). Common port profiles are grouped together since they serve as transport-specific variations of a common model. The port profiles are followed by other common profiles. Clause 50 presents recipes that span multiple profiles. This International Standard, together with ISO/IEC 24775-1, ISO/IEC 24775-2 and ISO/IEC 24775-4 to ISO/IEC 24775-8, replaces ISO/IEC 24775, second edition, published in 2011, and constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- reorganization into eight parts;
- maturity identification using stages;
- and new profiles.
