The IAB Technology Laboratory has released for public comment tech specifications for OpenRTB 3.0, built upon the framework released last September, as the second step in its introduction to the ecosystem.

– Three new specs to be used alongside with the OpenRTB
– ads.cert providing better inventory authentication to continue combating ad fraud
* Proposal for digitally signing bid requests to ensure inventory authenticity
– AdCOM (Advertising Common Object Model)
* New modular approach to describe advertising objects to be transacted in OpenRTB or other transactional specs
