       DNS Name Autoconfiguration for Internet of Things Devices
                 draft-jeong-ipwave-iot-dns-autoconf-04

Abstract

   This document specifies an autoconfiguration scheme for device
   discovery and service discovery.  Through the device discovery, this
   document supports the global (or local) DNS naming of Internet of
   Things (IoT) devices, such as sensors, actuators, and in-vehicle
   units.  By this scheme, the DNS name of an IoT device can be
   autoconfigured with the device's model information in wired and
   wireless target networks (e.g., vehicle, road network, home, office,
   shopping mall, and smart grid).  Through the service discovery, IoT
   users (e.g., drivers, passengers, home residents, and customers) in
   the Internet (or local network) can easily identify each device for
   monitoring and remote-controlling it in a target network.

1.  Introduction

   Many Internet of Things (IoT) devices (e.g., sensors, actuators, and
   in-vehicle units) have begun to have wireless communication
   capability (e.g., WiFi, Bluetooth, and ZigBee) for monitoring and
   remote-controlling in a local network or the Internet.  According to
