The Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP), although inspired by
HTTP, was designed to use UDP instead of TCP.  The message layer of
CoAP over UDP includes support for reliable delivery, simple
congestion control, and flow control.

Some environments benefit from the availability of CoAP carried over
reliable transports such as TCP or Transport Layer Security (TLS).
This document outlines the changes required to use CoAP over TCP,
TLS, and WebSockets transports.  It also formally updates RFC 7641
for use with these transports and RFC 7959 to enable the use of
larger messages over a reliable transport.

This document is a product of the Constrained RESTful Environments Working 
Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the
