Deploy360@IETF99, Day 4: IoT, IPv6, DNSSEC & TLS

Thursday at IETF 99 in Prague is a mixture of overflow sessions, the Internet-of-Things, and encryption. Each day we’re bringing you blog posts pointing out what Deploy360 will be focusing on.

Our day doesn’t actually start until 13.30 CEST/UTC+2, with the second part of V6OPS. This will continue discussing the ten drafts from whichever point it left them on Tuesday morning (see our Day 2 post for more information).

If you have V6OPS fatigue, then alternatively check out ROLL. This focuses on routing for the Internet-of-Things and has six drafts up for discussion.


NOTE: If you are unable to attend IETF 99 in person, there are multiple ways to participate remotely.


The second afternoon session at 15.50 CEST/UTC+2 features IPWAVE. This will be discussing two drafts on transmitting IPv6 over over IEEE 802.11-OCB in Vehicle-to-Internet and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure networks, and on a problem statement for IP Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments. A further draft summarises a survey on IP-based Vehicular Networking for Intelligent Transportation Systems.

There’s two working groups during the evening session starting at 18.10 CEST/UTC+2. UTA is discussing three drafts related to the compulsory use of TLS for SMTP, an interesting one proposing to obsolete clear text transfer for e-mail, and one proposing an SMTP service extension.

Finally, there’s the second part of DNSOP. There appears to be just the one DNSSEC-related draft in this session, on algorithm negotiation.

For more background, please read the Rough Guide to IETF 99 from Olaf, Dan, Andrei, Mat, Karen and myself.
