In this more technical discussion we will examine the most commonly deployed publish/ subscribe protocols, why they are used and their advantages over alternative network patterns. In this chapter the reader will learn:

  1. Why IP and HTTP are often unsuitable in IoT designs
  2. About Publish/subscribe patterns
  3. About the Message Queuing Telemetry Transport or MQTT
  4. MQTT benefits and issues
  5. How to secure MQTT
