MQTT is an open OASIS and ISO standard lightweight, publish-subscribe network protocol that transports messages between devices. AWS IoT message broker implementation is based on MQTT version 3.1.1. AWS IoT Core supports MQTT over the WebSocket protocol to enable browser-based and remote applications to send and receive data from AWS IoT Core-connected devices using AWS credentials.
