The Constrained RESTful Environments (CoRE) specifications apply Web technologies to constrained environments. One important such technology is Web Linking [RFC8288], which CoRE uses as the basis for a number of discovery protocols, such as the Link Format [RFC6690] in CoAP's Resource Discovery Protocol (Section 7 of [RFC7252]) and the Resource Directory [RFC9176]. Web Links can have Target Attributes, the names of which are not generally coordinated by the Web Linking specification (Section 2.2 of [RFC8288]). This short note introduces an IANA registry for coordinating names of Target Attributes when used in Constrained RESTful Environments.
