This document defines a concise representation of ISO/IEC 19770-2:2015 Software Identification (SWID) tags that are interoperable with the XML schema definition of ISO/IEC 19770-2:2015 and augmented for application in Constrained-Node Networks. Next to the inherent capability of SWID tags to express arbitrary context information, Concise SWID (CoSWID) tags support the definition of additional semantics via well-defined data definitions incorporated by extension points.
