Description of Working Group:

  Concise Binary Object Representation (CBOR, RFC 7049) extends the
  JavaScript Object Notation (JSON, RFC 7159) data interchange format to
  include binary data and an extensibility model, using a binary
  representation format that is easy to parse correctly. It has been
  picked up by a number of IETF efforts (e.g., CORE, ANIMA GRASP) as a
  message format.

  The CBOR working group will update RFC 7049 to fix verified errata.
  Security issues and clarifications may be addressed, but changes to the
  document will ensure backward compatibility for popular deployed
  codebases. The resulting document will be targeted at becoming an
  Internet Standard.

  Similar to the way ABNF (RFC 5234/7405) can be used to describe the set
  of valid messages in a text representation, it would be useful if
  protocol specifications could use a description format for the data in
  CBOR-encoded messages. The CBOR data definition language (CDDL, based on
  draft-greevenbosch-appsawg-cbor-cddl) is a proposal for such a
  description technique that has already been used in CORE, ANIMA, CDNI,
  and efforts outside the IETF. The CBOR WG will complete the development
  of this specification by creating an Informational or Standards Track
  RFC.  The document should specify its applicability statement in
  relationship to YANG data modelling language.

  In parallel to the work on CDDL, the WG will examine the CBOR extension
  for tagging of Typed Arrays (based on draft-jroatch-cbor-tags) and the
  CBOR extension for tagging of Object Identifiers and UUIDs (based on
  draft-bormann-cbor-tags-oid) that use CBOR's extensibility mechanisms to
  provide additional data types as used in certain applications. Where
  these proposals are deemed useful and do not require significant new
  development, the CBOR WG will complete these specifications as well. The
  WG will recharter before working on any further CBOR extensions.

Goals and Milestones:
  May 2018 - Submit CDDL to IESG as an Informational or Proposed Standard RFC
  Oct 2018 - Submit rfc7049bis to IESG as a Proposed Standard
