Technical Summary

  The ACE WG has created a framework for constrained servers
  to do authentication and authorization using OAuth.
  This document provides the details for how to use DTLS as
  the security for protecting and authentication the messages
  defined in the framework as well as the final client to
  resource server messages.

Working Group Summary

  The document did not raise any issues during development.
  Most of the issues were focused on the framework document.

Document Quality

  At least two implementations of prior versions of this document
  exist.  The process of doing these implementations and making
  sure that they were interoperable was influential in some of
  the content in the document.


  Jim Schaad is the Document Shepherd.  Benjamin Kaduk is the
  Responsible Area Director.

(3) In addition to validating my implementation of the specification
I checked the IANA considerations to make sure that they were complete,
checked all of the nits and did a read through to make sure all WGLC comments
were addressed.

(4) All of my concerns have been addressed during the WGLC process.

(5) Looking at the mechanism that is defined for resource server
key generation should be checked against the security considerations
and any problems.

(6) I have no specific concerns with this document.
