As today’s 86th meeting of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) begins, here are the sessions from the IETF86 agenda that we on the Deploy360 team will be attending (all times US Eastern). General information about participating remotely can be found on the Remote Participation page – specific info for the groups we are following is included below.
0900-1130 Monday, March 11
There are two groups we want to follow so Jan will be probably be in one (Softwires) while I (Dan) am in the other (SIDR):
Softwires – Caribbean 2
This working group is looking at ways to connect IPv4 networks across IPv6 networks and connecting IPv6 networks across IPv4 networks… both important aspects of encouraging IPv6 deployment.
Secure Interdomain Routing (SIDR) – Caribbean 4
This is the primary working group at IETF dealing with routing security issues that we are now looking to cover in the future in our Routing Resiliency/Security section of Deploy360. There will be some good discussions here related to BGPSEC and RPKI that should be quite interesting.
1300-1500 Monday, March 11
This time block is easy as we all will be in the “v6ops” working group dealing with IPv6 operational issues. This is probably the most important working group for the IPv6 work we do here within Deploy360.
IPv6 Operations (V6ops) – Caribbean 3
1540-1710 Monday, March 11
This time block doesn’t have any sessions that are specific to the Deploy360 program, but several are of general interest:
- History BOF – looking at ways to archive/record history of the Internet.
- Netconf – a protocol to ease configuration of network devices
- Oauth – an important protocol for web security
- Transport Area – discussions of transport-related drafts and items that don’t fit in existing working groups
Links to the audio feeds and jabber rooms for those sessions can be easily found on the tools-style agenda page.
1740-1940 Monday, March 11 – Technical Plenary
The technical plenary doesn’t directly relate to the topics we cover here at Deploy360, but the lead session will be “The End of Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS)” by Henning Schulzrinne, the CTO of the US Federal Communications Committee (FCC) and should be quite interesting.
- Audio stream – either Caribbean 3 or Caribbean 4
- Jabber chat: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Meetecho conferencing
And that will be the end of a long day!
