Hi all,

During the 2021-09-15 interim meeting [1], we had a good first 
discussion on the proposed new text for the possible updated charter.

As mentioned at the meeting, please take some time to review the new 
text and possibly provide input/comments. Even in case you are just fine 
with the text "as is", it is valuable feedback to say so.


Please, provide your comments and proposed changes:

- In this mail thread, where the first message [2] also includes the new 
proposed charter text;

and/or

- In this CodiMD document [3], where editing requires to be logged in 
with your Datatracker account.


The new charter text is also available on our Github at [4], together 
with a diff from the present charter text at [5].

Thanks,
Marco and Jaime

> CoRE WG will complete the Sensor Measurement Lists (SenML) set of 
> specifications, again with consideration to its adoption in OMA LwM2M.

> appropriate for constrained node networks (draft-ietf-core-yang-cbor,

> The CoRE WG originally selected DTLS as the basis for the 
> communication security in CoAP. The CoRE WG will work with the TLS WG

> evolve in cooperation with the TLS WG and CFRG.

> The CoRE WG considered object security as originally defined in JOSE 
> and later adapted to the constrained node network requirements in 
> COSE. Building on that, the CoRE WG has defined the Object Security 
> for Constrained RESTful Environments (OSCORE) protocol (RFC 8613) for 
> protecting CoAP messages at the application layer using COSE. The CoRE 
> WG will complete the work on the Group OSCORE protocol 
> (draft-ietf-core-oscore-groupcomm) that enables OSCORE-protection of 
> CoAP messages in group communication environments. Also, the CoRE WG 
> will complete an optimization-oriented profiling of the EDHOC protocol 
> developed in the LAKE WG, when this is used to establish security 
> material for OSCORE (draft-ietf-core-oscore-edhoc). Furthermore, the 
> CoRE WG will perform maintenance as well as possible updating and 
> complementing of the (Group) OSCORE documents above as required.

> The ACE WG is expected to provide solutions on authentication and 
> authorization that may need complementary elements on the CoRE side.
>
> The CoRE WG will coordinate on requirements from many organizations 
> and SDOs. The CoRE WG will closely coordinate with other IETF WGs, 
> particularly of the constrained node networks cluster (6Lo, 6TiSCH, 
> LWIG, ROLL, ACE, CBOR, COSE, IOTOPS, LAKE, SUIT), and with further 
> appropriate groups in the IETF OPS and Security Areas. Work on these 
> subjects, as well as on data/interaction models and design patterns
