Abstract: This document provides reference information for implementing a cross-protocol network proxy that performs translation from the HTTP protocol to the CoAP protocol. This will enable a HTTP client to access resources on a CoAP server through the proxy. This document describes how a HTTP request is mapped to a CoAP request, and then how a CoAP response is mapped back to a HTTP response. This includes guidelines for URI mapping, media type mapping and additional proxy implementation issues. This document covers the Reverse, Forward and Interception cross-protocol proxy cases.
