Abstract

   The Concise Binary Object Representation (CBOR, RFC 7049) is a data
   format whose design goals include the possibility of extremely small
   code size, fairly small message size, and extensibility without the
   need for version negotiation.

   In CBOR, one point of extensibility is the definition of CBOR tags.
   RFC 7049 and its revision 7049bis define a basic set of tags as well
   as a registry that can be used to contribute additional tag
   definitions [IANA.cbor-tags].  Since RFC 7049 was published, some 80
   tag definitions have been added to that registry.

   The present document provides a roadmap to a large subset of these
   tag definitions.  Where applicable, it points to a IETF standards or
   standard development document that specifies the tag.  Where no such
   document exists, the intention is to collect specification
   information from the sources of the registrations.  After some more
   development, the present document is intended to be useful as a
   reference document for the IANA registrations of the CBOR tags the
   definitions of which have been collected.

Note to Readers

   This is an individual submission to the CBOR working group of the
   IETF, https://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/cbor/about/
   (https://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/cbor/about/).  Discussion currently
   takes places on the github repository https://github.com/cabo/
   notable-tags (https://github.com/cabo/notable-tags).  If the CBOR WG
   believes this is a useful document, discussion is likely to move to
   the CBOR WG mailing list and a github repository at the CBOR WG
   github organization, https://github.com/cbor-wg (https://github.com/
   cbor-wg).

   The current version is true work in progress; some of the sections
   haven't been filled in yet, and in particular, permission has not
   been obtained from tag definition authors to copy over their text.
