Hi all,

IANA has received a request to register "cbor" in the WebSocket Subprotocol Name registry at


Barry Leiba and Alexey Melnikov suggested asking this mailing list for opinions on this request. 

This is all of the information that was provided:


Type of Assignment:
WebSocket Subprotocol ID: `cbor`, Common Name: `Concise Binary Object Representation`

A concise binary object format for representing structured data. Defined in https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7049


We understand that if this registration can be made, the RFC should not be listed on its own in the Subprotocol Definition field. In addition, we currently have only the requester's name to list in the registry's "Reference" field. 

We're also asking the JSON mailing list to comment on a request to register "json."
