I agree with Hannes, this version of the document is much cleaner and
clearer. I think that it has solved most of the problems that I
had with the draft. It is not ready to progress as there are still
that are marked as TODO. But it is much closer to finishing that it
That sounds hopeful. Agree about the TODOs
I still have a couple of comments from a quick read through of the

In section 3- Should we be looking at the use of COSE rather than CMS

required for a CoAP/HTTP proxy.
Agree fully, we need to clarify that.
* Should probably add a note in section 6 that any proxy that
DTLS connection is going to be required to act as an RA. RAs are
to have the entire request for adding authentication as necessary.
This is visible in the figure of section 6, but needs elaboration in the
Many thanks, this helps to get our text more concrete and complete.
