Hi all,

after re-reading token exchange, the resource indicator, and the ace-oauth-params drafts I am wondering whether it is really necessary to have different functionality in ACE vs. in OAuth for basic parameters.

Imagine I use an Authorization Server and I support devices that use CoAP and HTTP.


  1.  If a device uses CoAP then it has to use the req_aud parameter to indicate to the authorization server that it wants to talk to a specific resource server. It would either put a URI or a logical name there.
  2.  If a device uses HTTP then it has to use either the resource parameter to indicate to the authorization server that it wants to talk to a resource server, which is identified using a URI, or the audience parameter, if it uses a logical name.

Ciao
Hannes
