Constrained Device

2

Class Rough Translation

0 Can’t run IP stack securely.

1 Integrated security but can’t employ full stack using HTTP over TLS.

2 Small but benefit from efficient protocols that free resources for application or reduce operational costs.

Security! Datagram TLS ! Records are independent so that if the i’th record is lost i+1'th can still be decrptyed ! Handshake messages queued ! Application is responsible for dealing with loss and reordering

LWM2M deployment scenario

from Whitepaper Feb 2014, Vodafone, ARM, Ericsson

Page 15: Internet of Things (IoT) protocols  COAP MQTT OSCON2014

MQTT! Binary ! “Lightweight” - not much meta data ! PubSub, Broker is key ! Not a queue, cf. AMQP

- but most recent message can be stored by a broker and a Last Will and Testament can be set.

! TCP with concomitant TLS/SSL ! (MQTT-S address TCP constraint) ! IBM driven. OASIS MQTT 3.1.1 expected approved in September 2014

Core MQTT messages

19

Message Code Description

CONNECT 1 Client request to connect to Server

PUBLISH 3 Publish message

SUBSCRIBE 8 Client subscribe request

UNSUBSCRIBE 10 Client Unsubscribe

DISCONNECT 14 Client is disconnecting

Page 20: Internet of Things (IoT) protocols  COAP MQTT OSCON2014

Quality of Service

20

for many constrained devices likely that only QoS 0 is available

Page 21: Internet of Things (IoT) protocols  COAP MQTT OSCON2014

Interesting Flags! Last Will and Testament (if you think i am dead ….) .

- Optional message with CONNECT. ! Retained Message.

- e.g. New subscriber gets latest message

Code to play with! (C, JS, Python etc) http://git.eclipse.org/c/paho/ ! Lots of client libraries including .NET, Erlang and Lua. Some are device specific. See

mqtt.org ! Broker http://mosquitto.org/ ! More brokers: See http://mqtt.org/wiki/doku.php/public_brokers

Summary! Go make things, do it wirelessly and use batteries. ! If you use a Broker look carefully at what assumptions you are making.

- Does an unknown client need full knowledge of the broker?
