                     draft-vanderstok-core-comi-00

Abstract

   The draft describes an interface based on CoAP to manage constrained
   devices.  Access to existing MIBs is included.  The proposed
   integration of CoAP with SNMP reduces the code size by removing an
   important part of the SNMP code.  The draft lists a set of CoMI
   objects that describe the operational settings of the applications on
   the device.  A majority of them is taken over from other drafts to
   provide one uniform CoMI based access.

Note

   Discussion and suggestions for improvement are requested, and should
   be sent to core@ietf.org.

2.  Introduction

   The Constrained RESTful Environments (CoRE) working group aims at
   Machine to Machine (M2M) applications such as smart energy and
   building control.

   Small M2M devices need to be managed in an automatic fashion to
   handle the large quantities of devices that are expected to be
