This memo describes challenges associated with securing resource-
constrained smart object devices.  The memo describes a possible
deployment model where resource-constrained devices sign message
objects, discusses the availability of cryptographic libraries for
resource-constrained devices, and presents some preliminary
experiences with those libraries for message signing on resource-
constrained devices.  Lastly, the memo discusses trade-offs involving
different types of security approaches.

This document is a product of the Light-Weight Implementation Guidance Working Group of the IETF.
