Ah, now I understand what your concern is !

Scenario 1: "home"

CoAP sensors and actuators are typically domestic appliances, light bulbs,
meters, etc.
Both the browser and the proxy are behind the home gateway, thus no
ACL/NAT/firewall prevents browser from interacting with the the HTTP-CoAP

Scenario 2: "city"

CoAP sensors and actuators are smog/temperature/etc. detectors scattered in the
city territory.

HTTP-CoAP proxy is in the public internet and can be freely contacted by any
