2.a. Project Scope
Reaffirm HL7 Version 3 Standard: Transport Specifications - MLLP
2.b. Project Need
The purpose of the MLLP Protocol (Minimum Lower Layer Protocol) is to provide both a minimalistic Open Systems Interconnection (OSI)-session layer framing protocol as well as a minimalistic reliable transport protocol. If security is an issue, additional protocols or technologies will have to be layered on top of MLLP to achieve these goals.
2.c. Security Risks
Will this project produce executable(s), for example, schemas, transforms, style sheets, executable program, etc. If so the project must review and document security risks.
2.d. External Drivers
Describe any external schedules or calendars which may not be known outside of the project team that are driving target dates for this project.
2.e. Project Objectives / Deliverables / Target Dates
Submit for Normative Ballot
2018 May Ballot
Complete Normative Reconciliation
2018 May WGM
Submit Publication Request
Receive ANSI Approval
Project End Date (all objectives have been met)
Note: For PSS-Lite/Investigative Project, End date must be no more than two WGM cycles, e.g. project initiated at January WGM must complete investigation by September WGM.
