To be more accurate, the battery of the chip module of the intelligent water/gas meter are required to last for 10 years. These lead to an exercise strict control over the power consumption of the chip module. NAT expiring problem causing DTLS renegotiation with high power consumption is a bottleneck of these IOT devices. According to our experimental data, under the worst coverage level (ECL2), power consumption of the chip module when DTLS is embedded increases by nearly 60%. Therefore, there should be a solution to solve the urgent problem to match the low-cost and low-battery feature of the IOT devices in DTLS 1.2.

At present, large-scale commercial IOT industry deployment is urgent, it is too late to wait for DTLS 1.3. Thus, we hope that the above problem could be solved in DTLS 1.2 as soon as possible.

Yin Xinxing,

While waiting for cid, perhaps today do session resumption (RFC5077), anytime the client has reason to suspect their UDP port or IP address might have changed -- such as it's been longer than, say, 30 seconds since last UDP transmission.  (The problem isn't solely NAT; there are several ISPs that change subscriber's IP address, also forcing re-negotiation of DTLS security association.  Less frequent than NATs timing out UDP, of course.)
