Technical Summary The purpose of this document is to provide guidance in the selection and use of protocols from the RPL protocol suite to implement the features required for control in building and home environments. Working Group Summary There has not been much discussion on the working group mailing list about this document. Apart from a review by the shepherd, a review with a focus on security has been carried out. In both cases the authors amended the document to the reviewers' satisfaction. A further revision was made after AD review. Document Quality The document is positioned as PS according to its classification as an Applicability Statement according to RFC 2026. This gives rise to a long list of downrefs that were called out in IETF last call. An AS is not implemented, per se, but this document is written based on the experience of a number of implementations. Personnel Yvonne-Anne Pignolet is the Document Shepherd. Alvaro Retana is the Responsible AD.
