Technical Summary

The document defines a Uniform Resource Name (URN) namespace, to express device URN-based identifiers for HW devices. Relevant target applications are sensor data streams and storage, smart object systems, and equipment inventories. The device URN is recommended especially for constrained environments.

On top of the "DEV" URN identifier type and its hierarchically structured syntax, the document defines a number of subtypes, as affecting the exact identifier assignment. Defined subtypes support device URNs that reflect: built-in EUI-64, MAC-48 and EUI-48 MAC addresses; 1-Wire proprietary identifiers; organization-specific identifiers, possibly including product class and serial number.

Working Group Summary and Document Quality

The document has been discussed on multiple IETF meetings, and has gone through multiple expert reviews. Consensus has been reached on the content of this document and its need.  This document is expected to be referenced by other organizations.
