Abstract

The Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) is a lightweight and power-efficient Internet standard specifically designed for M2M communication in the Internet of Things (IoT). CoAP provides a set of mechanisms for IoT interactions including request/response, publish/subscribe and resource discovery. For the latter, a Resource Directory (RD) solution is proposed to register and store information about IoT resources to be queried by users. Such a solution, however, only allows syntactic discovery. In this paper, we extend CoAP with lightweight semantic-rich information by defining appropriate CoRE link format attributes describing both IoT resources and user requests. Such an extension is integrated with the RD to facilitate semantic resources discovery. Implementation and thorough evaluations of the proposed approach show important performance enhancements when compared with the default RD solution.
