> In BPv7, a bundle MUST be uniquely identified by the tuple of (Sender_EID, Creation timestamp) – ignoring BP fragmentation, which I think you should at the COAP level.

Yes. Similarly, IP packets are not often duplicated but a transport must be prepared to deal if it happens, which is what IP transports do.  In case of BP,  for managing BP region routing and node mobility, Scott Burleigh mentioned a few weeks ago that the bundles have to be duplicated so that the network can learn the new topology. Therefore, it seems that within BP design, bundles will be duplicated not just by « accident ».

Regards, Marc.

> However, there is no requirement of ‘maintaining bundle order’ at the BPA layer, so you will need to perform reordering at the COAP layer, but the ‘Creation timestamp’ field in the BP primary block (which should be available to a higher layer) does give you an Bundle A ‘created before’ Bundle B relationship which is likely what you need.
> The Sender_EID can be required to be fixed for the length of a COAP ‘session’, as an EID is a logical communication endpoint rather than an address, and hence avoids problems such as re-homing, multi-homing, mobility, etc.
> And yes, although a Creation timestamp is only 2 CBOR unsigned integers, an EID can be a fairly large CBOR object when encoded.  But it is worth remembering that although ‘native’ COAP compresses heavily to fit in small frames, a bundle can happily be a several orders of magnitude larger than 1500 octets – but I’m not sure if that helps!
> And…  bundle status reports are defined as very much a debugging feature – RFC9171 states ‘disabled by default’, as they are a potential source of DDoS by reflection attacks.  Requiring status reports for COAP-over-BP feels like a mistake to me.

However, RFC 7252 would imply that, in some cases (e.g., Jupiter to Earth, for MAX_RETRANSMIT=1) the maximum average message rate would decrease from the current ~265 message/s down to ~3 message/s. Perhaps the latter could be enough. Or perhaps a more future-proof approach could aim to avoid a limitation on the maximum message rate. But of course, the downsides of increasing the MID size (such as those mentioned by Christian) need to be taken into account as well.
