 OSCORE profile of the Authentication and Authorization for Constrained
                         Environments Framework
                    draft-ietf-ace-oscore-profile-00

Abstract

   This memo specifies a profile for the Authentication and
   Authorization for Constrained Environments (ACE) framework.  It
   utilizes Object Security for Constrained RESTful Environments
   (OSCORE) to provide communication security, server authentication,
   and proof-of-possession for a key owned by the client and bound to an
   OAuth 2.0 access token.

1.  Introduction

   This memo specifies a profile of the ACE framework
   [I-D.ietf-ace-oauth-authz].  In this profile, a client and a resource
   server use CoAP [RFC7252] to communicate.  The client uses an access
   token, bound to a key (the proof-of-possession key) to authorize its
   access to the resource server.  In order to provide communication
   security, proof of possession, and server authentication they use
   Object Security for Constrained RESTful Environments (OSCORE)
   [I-D.ietf-core-object-security].  Optionally the client and the
   resource server may also use CoAP and OSCORE to communicate with the
   authorization server.

   OSCORE specifies how to use CBOR Object Signing and Encryption (COSE)
   [RFC8152] to secure CoAP messages.  In order to provide replay and
   reordering protection OSCORE also introduces sequence numbers that
   are used together with COSE.
