PC37.231

Standard Common Format for Documenting Intelligent Electronic Device (IED) Firmware or Software Changes and Confirming Their Transmittal

This standard defines a common format and content for manufacturers of Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) used in protection, automation, and control systems to document the changes in firmware or software to support users in their change management programs. The common format and content includes documenting each change with a classification and impact assessment on the performance, reliability (security and dependability), and functionality of an IED. Exchange requirements include the methods implemented by the manufacturers so that users can confirm the authenticity and integrity of the firmware or software itself along with the shared information.
