Mastering Internet of Things

By: Peter Waher

Overview of this book

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the fastest growing technology market. Industries are embracing IoT technologies to improve operational expenses, product life, and people's well-being. Mastering Internet of Things starts by presenting IoT fundamentals and the smart city. You will learn the important technologies and protocols that are used for the Internet of Things, their features, corresponding security implications, and practical examples on how to use them. This book focuses on creating applications and services for the Internet of Things. Further, you will learn to create applications and services for the Internet of Things. You will be discover various interesting projects and understand how to publish sensor data, control devices, and react to asynchronous events using the XMPP protocol. The book also introduces chat, to interact with your devices. You will learn how to automate your tasks by using Internet of Things Service Platforms as the base for an application. You will understand the subject of privacy, requirements they should be familiar with, and how to avoid violating any of the important new regulations being introduced. At the end of the book, you will have mastered creating open, interoperable and secure networks of things, protecting the privacy and integrity of your users and their information.

Achieving interoperability using CoAP

Application-layer interoperability using CoAP can be achieved by the introduction of three technologies: CoRE, LWM2M, and IPSO Smart Objects.

Discovering resources using CoRE

We've already mentioned CoRE in the previous chapter. The CoAP protocol is an artefact published by the IETF CoRE Working Group. Another artefact is the CoRE Link Format, which we've used to find what resources are available on a device. By performing a GET method call on the /.well-known/core resource, the caller will receive a Link Format document, briefly describing what resources are available on the device, and some minimal set of corresponding information, such as if the resource is observable or not.

The following is an example Link Format document, generated by our SensorCoap application developed in the previous chapter. New lines have been added for readability. Resources are separated by commas (,), and parameters for each resource are separated by semicolons (;). The obs...
