Concise BinaryObject Representation (CBOR) is a data format
, maps, andstrings
, anda few simple decision criteria such as true, false, and null
.Applications benefit from CBOR because it provides faster processing speed due to the small code size and its encoding
. Applications for theCBOR data format
includemachine-to-machine (M2M) communications in IoTivity and low power WANs (LPWAN) in the Internet of Things
(IoT). The CBOR data format is described in RFC 7049.
