Concise BinaryObject Representation (CBOR) is a data format

characterized by an extremely small code size and a sufficiently small message size. The CBOR data format is based on the JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), which specifies the arrays

, 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.
