To see a complete listing of standards on this topic, please see Document Center’s List of Information Coding Standards.

The documents that fall into this category include ones on coding of audio, picture, multimedia and hypermedia information, IT security techniques, encryption, bar coding, electronic signatures, and so on.  Not surprisingly, this category is extensive due to the pressures of the developing technologies involved.  

I have taken the liberty of just focusing on the updates to source documents in this blog to keep the list of revised documents at a manageable length.   So BSI and EN adoptions are not included.  FYI:  Technical Corrigendums are change notices, with “pen-and-ink” updates.

These Information Technology standards are normally developed by the Joint Technical Committee 1 (JTC1).  Various subcommittees handle more specific topics.  For example, Subcommittee 27 is charged with developing standards on IT security techniques.
