The goal of the Building Infonnation Services and
Control System (BISACS) is to create a computer based
system that will allow external users to be verified and
then logged into the system in order to gain access to
building infonnation such as its structural layout
and/or to monitor a particular building or set of
buildings for alerts. The "control" aspect of the BISACS
is to allow external personnel to control certain
essential devices located within a building. The BISACS
will be used to test a variety of scenarios, protocols
and messages for demonstrating methods and metrics for
linking external services to building infonnation and
control systems. This document is intended for the
technical audience that has a good understanding of
computers, the Internet, general Web Services
architecture, x509 certificates and other related
subject matter. This document describes the components
that make up the BISACS and how they are integrated in
order to support the Building Infonnation Services and
Control System's various goals. As a project, the BISACS
has not matured fully; it is the purpose of this
document to describe the underlying support system
implemented for the BISACS as well as what has been
implemented to date in supporting the alerts monitoring
feature of the BISACS.
