The fourth day for our Deploy360 team at the 89th IETF meeting could perhaps best be described as “utter madness” as there are multiple working groups meeting on ALL of the topics we cover here: IPv6, DNSSEC, securing BGP and even our new TLS for Applications area. In particular, several of the major DNS groups are holding their only meetings today.
- The meeting of the DANE Working Group (read more about the DANE protocol).
- The work in SUNSET4 on phasing out IPv4 and the second meeting of v6OPS focused on operational guidance for IPv6.
- The 6TiSCH work on IPv6 in resource-constrained “Internet of Things” kinds of networks.
- The IDR working group has many work items relating to BGP.
- There is a new DBOUND BOF session that is looking into boundaries in the DNS related to domain names and how those could apply to security policies.
- In EPPEXT there is an extension proposed for how to securely pass DNSSEC keying material between operators and registries.
Beyond all of those, there are two other Thursday meetings that have come to our attention:
- In the 1300-1500 block when we already have 3 other sessions of interest, the SIPCORE Working Group is planning a 45 minute discussion on “Happy Eyeballs for SIP” looking at what needs to be done to make SIP work over IPv6. (Where SIP is the dominant open standard used in voice-over-IP.)
- At the end of the day, a brand new timeslot was opened up from 1840-2040 where the DNSOP Working Group is going to get a head-start on their Friday morning agenda and very specifically focus on the outcome of yesterday’s DNSE BOF around what can be done to protect the confidentiality of DNS queries. The main point of this evening timeslot is so that TLS can be discussed with some of the people from the UTA Working Group joining in to the discussion (since UTA and DNSOP are scheduled at the same time on Friday morning).
All in all its going to be an extremely busy day for all of us! We’re looking forward to it, though, as great things are definitely happening!
