Technical Summary This document defines a Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) Usage for REsource LOcation And Discovery (RELOAD). The CoAP Usage provides the functionality to federate Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) in a peer-to-peer fashion. The CoAP Usage for RELOAD allows CoAP nodes to store resources in a RELOAD peer-to-peer overlay, provides a lookup service, and enables the use of RELOAD overlay as a cache for sensor data. This functionality is implemented in the RELOAD overlay itself, without the use of centralized servers. The RELOAD AppAttach method is used to establish a direct connection between nodes through which CoAP messages are exchanged. Working Group Summary The mechanism specified in this draft is directly related to two protocols: CoAP and RELOAD. Therefore, the draft was discussed in both the CORE and the P2PSIP WGs. The draft was presented in the face-to-face session of the P2PSIP WG at IETF 83. It was decided to progress it as an AD sponsored document. As part of that process, dedicated reviewers from both communities were assigned to the draft so that the draft was reviewed from both points of view before its publication was requested. Document Quality At least Ericsson has an implementation of the draft using an older version of RELOAD. There have been academic papers published describing parts of that implementation. Other parties have shown interest in implementing it as well once the RFC is published. Personnel Carlos Jesus Bernardos is the document shepherd. Ben Campbell is the responsible area director.
