Summary

The Continua Design Guidelines (CDG) defines a framework of underlying standards and criteria that ensure the interoperability of devices and data used for personal connected health services. It also contains design guidelines (DGs) that further clarify the underlying standards or specifications by reducing options or by adding missing features to improve interoperability.

This specification defines the additional design guidelines for the Authenticated Persistent Session (APS), whose function is to provide a secure, long-lived, persistent bidirectional data channel between the health and fitness services application and a PHG application, suitable for sending unsolicited commands to the PHG or to devices connected via the PHG.
