CoAP support for IoT Hub
The Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) is a specialized web transfer protocol for use with constrained nodes and constrained networks in the Internet of Things. The protocol is designed for machine-to-machine (M2M) applications such as smart energy and building automation.
It would be helpful if you could support CoAP in IoT Hub. It provides a lightweight REST model messaging which can be used in constrained devices with ease.
COAP also provides stronger security at implementation level and will be a game changer for IoT Hub.
Support for DTLS (with symmetric key and certificate) and dtls connection id (https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-tls-dtls-connection-id/ - needed for most NB-IoT networks since they use carrier grade NAT) would be very useful. Without DTLS, CoAP would likely be unencrypted.
This is a make or break for Azure IOT relevance in the current marketplace

This is a must-do for the IoT-Hub and IoT-Edge. Announce it now, or lose serious ground. Sincerly.
