                 draft-selander-ace-coap-est-oscore-01

Abstract

   This document specifies public key certificate enrollment procedures
   protected with application-layer security protocols suitable for
   Internet of Things (IoT) deployments.  The protocols leverage payload
   formats defined in Enrolment over Secure Transport (EST) and existing
   IoT standards including the Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP),
   Concise Binary Object Representation (CBOR) and the CBOR Object
   Signing and Encryption (COSE) format.

1.  Introduction

   One of the challenges with deploying a Public Key Infrastructure
   (PKI) for the Internet of Things (IoT) is certificate enrolment,
   because existing enrolment protocols are not optimized for
   constrained environments [RFC7228].

   One optimization of certificate enrollment targeting IoT deployments
   is specified in EST-CoAPs ([I-D.ietf-ace-coap-est]), which defines a
   version of Enrolment over Secure Transport [RFC7030] for transporting
   EST payloads over CoAP [RFC7252] and DTLS [RFC6347], instead of
   secured HTTP.

   This document describes a method for protecting EST payloads over
   CoAP or HTTP with OSCORE [I-D.ietf-core-object-security].  OSCORE
   specifies an extension to CoAP which protects the application layer
   message and can be applied independently of how CoAP messages are
   transported.  OSCORE can also be applied to CoAP-mappable HTTP which
   enables end-to-end security for mixed CoAP and HTTP transfer of
   application layer data.  Hence EST payloads can be protected end-to-
