Hi all,

Recently I received private mail with some specific questions about 
gcoap and DTLS. Responses below.

There is a work-in-progress pull request for integration of DTLS and 
gcoap, #7177. There is good discussion in there about the best way to 
integrate DTLS generically with RIOT's sock networking.

RIOT's master branch includes support for the Observe extension for 
non-confirmable messaging. There is an open PR for integration with 
confirmable messaging, #7548.

There also was a question about "periodic resources", but that's not 
part of the CoAP spec AFAIK. Certainly one could integrate a timer to 
periodically send Observe notifications.
