The concept of Profiles for OSI, and the structure of the
International Standardized Profiles that document them, are defined in ISO/IEC TR 10000-1. Such Profiles are divided into a number of different classes and sub-classes. Two of these classes contain sub-classes comprising functions of the Virtual Terminal Basic Class Service and Protocol specified in the base standards ISO 9040 and ISO 9041. These are the Application Profiles (A-Profiles) and the Interchange Format and Representation Profiles (F-Profiles).
The relationship between A-Profiles and F-Profiles is described in 7.3.2 of ISO/IEC TR 10000-1 and is as follows. Application Layer base standards require, implicitly or explicitly, the structure of information carried or referenced by them to be specified for each instance of communication. It is the purpose of F-Profiles to specify such information structures. Particular fun ctional requirements may then be met by the combination of an A-Profile with one or more F-Profiles.
Establishment of a VT-association involves the selection by
negotiation of a particular Virtual Terminal Environment profile
(VTE-profile), and of particular values for any arguments of that VTE-profile. The VTE-profile specification, and possibly also the values of certain VTE-profile arguments, may in turn
reference the definitions of VT control object types and attribute assignment types. These VTE-profiles, control object
types and attribute assignment types are therefore Information
Objects that require explicit reference within the VT protocol.
Particular instances of these Information Objects are fully
defined within the base standards, but the base standards also provide for further instances to be defined by registration. Each registered instance constitutes an F-Profile within the framework of ISO/IEC TR 10000.
The Virtual Terminal Basic Class Service and Protocol may
be used to realise a wide range of distinct functions. Particular functions may be realised through the selection of
appropriate VT functional units, F-Profiles and other VTE- profile argument values. The specification of the selection
required to realise a particular function and to promote
interoperability constitutes a Virtual Terminal A-Profile within the framework of ISO/IEC TR 10000.
The three International Registers of VT information objects and the specifications of VT Application Profiles are each published as a separate multi-part ISP as follows:
- ISO/IEC ISP 11184 is the Register of VTE-profiles;
- ISO/IEC ISP 11185 is the Register of control object type definitions;
- ISO/IEC ISP 11186 is the Register of attribute assignment type definitions;
- ISO/IEC ISP 11187 contains the specifications of VT Application Profiles.
This part of ISO/IEC ISP 11186 contains the definition of a
repertoire assignment type for which a repertoire assignment value identifies a subset of the Universal Multiple-Octet Coded Character Set specified in the multi-part standard ISO/IEC 10646.
