Day 2 for the Deploy360 team here at the 89th IETF meeting is a big day for routing and for IPv6. Two of the main routing groups, SIDR and GROW, meet today, and our colleague Andrei Robachevsky recently wrote about the important work happening in both groups to make the Internet’s routing infrastructure more secure.
Two of the important IPv6 groups we are monitoring are meeting today: HOMENET and 6MAN. Homenet is focused on “home networks” and the role IPv6 plays there. They are doing some very cool work within the group and a couple of our members are there. In the afternoon, the 6man group will be looking at changes to the IPv6 protocol. As our colleague Phil Roberts recently wrote, a big focus here will be around efficient neighbor discovery.
Today will also have a “Birds of a Feather” (BOF) meeting for the “DNSE” group. This is not a formal working group but rather a meeting to talk about some potential areas of work within other groups within the IETF. As I wrote about in a recent post:
- The “Encryption of DNS requests for confidentiality” (DNSE) BOF is exploring how to protect the confidentiality of DNS requests from sniffing. The DNSE BOF will use draft-bortzmeyer-dnsop-dns-privacy and draft-koch-perpass-dns-confidentiality as starting points for discussion.
Another feature of today will be the “Internet Society @ IETF89 Briefing Panel” today from 11:45-12:45 UTC where the topic is “Evolution of end-to-end: why the Internet is not like any other network“. It should be quite an interesting discussion that will also be live streamed out via Google+ / YouTube.
If you are here at IETF 89, please do say hello! And if you are remote, you can follow along using the information at the bottom of the page and also follow us on Twitter at @deploy360 and also @isoctech.
