The Concise Binary Object Representation (CBOR), as defined in RFC
7049, is a data format whose design goals include the possibility of
extremely small code size, fairly small message size, and
extensibility without the need for version negotiation.

This document makes use of this extensibility to define a number of
CBOR tags for typed arrays of numeric data, as well as additional
tags for multi-dimensional and homogeneous arrays.  It is intended as
the reference document for the IANA registration of the CBOR tags

This document is a product of the Concise Binary Object Representation Maintenance and Extensions Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
