Securing, Authenticating, and Visualizing Data-Links for Manufacturing Enterprises



William Z. Bernstein, Sylvere Krima, Laetitia Monnier, Mehdi Shahid


We introduce a prototype implementation of the Securing and Authenticating Data-Links (SADL) Interface, which interacts with a manufacturing handle registry to facilitate traceability of digital resources for engineering projects. This paper outlines the intended use of SADL and the handle registry by laying out hypothetical questions from potential users. Additionally, we map the core concepts of key standard data representations in manufacturing to a popular data type taxonomy. Future work will include the design and testing of data visualizations based on our mapping protocols.
