This document allows a Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) server to redirect a client to a new URI. The primary use case is to allow a client using multicast CoAP discovery to learn a COAPS endpoint of the server, without the server revealing privacy-sensitive information. This improves security and privacy in environments with untrusted clients.
