Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) Profile for Authentication and
            Authorization for Constrained Environments (ACE)
                    draft-ietf-ace-dtls-authorize-08

Abstract

   This specification defines a profile of the ACE framework that allows
   constrained servers to delegate client authentication and
   authorization.  The protocol relies on DTLS for communication
   security between entities in a constrained network using either raw
   public keys or pre-shared keys.  A resource-constrained server can
   use this protocol to delegate management of authorization information
   to a trusted host with less severe limitations regarding processing
   power and memory.

1.  Introduction

   This specification defines a profile of the ACE framework
   [I-D.ietf-ace-oauth-authz].  In this profile, a client and a resource
   server use CoAP [RFC7252] over DTLS [RFC6347] to communicate.  The
   client obtains an access token, bound to a key (the proof-of-
   possession key), from an authorization server to prove its
   authorization to access protected resources hosted by the resource
   server.  Also, the client and the resource server are provided by the
   authorization server with the necessary keying material to establish
   a DTLS session.  The communication between client and authorization
