RFC 8094: DNS over DTLS published

RFC 8094 – DNS over Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) – was recently published as an experimental specification. This was the result of the ongoing activity of the DNS PRIVate Exchange (dprive) Working Group at the IETF to develop mechanisms to provide confidentiality to DNS transactions and to address concerns surrounding pervasive monitoring. DNS queries and responses are normally exchanged unencrypted on the Read more…


Deploy360@IETF98, Day 5: The Big Goodbye

There’s a couple of sessions of interest on the last day of IETF 98 before we say goodbye to the Windy City. Both are running in parallel on the Friday morning starting at 09.00 CDT/UTC-6, but perhaps of most interest to us is IPWAVE. This is working to develop a mechanism for transmitting IPv6 datagrams over Read more…


Deploy360@IETF98, Day 4: IPv6, IoT & ACME

Thursday at week IETF 98 in Chicago is another mix of IPv6, the Internet-of-Things and TLS-related working groups. Each day we’re bringing you blog posts pointing out what Deploy360 will be focusing on. The first session of the day is 6MAN which has a last call on updates to the IPv6 specification as currently defined in RFC 2460, RFC 4291, Read more…


Deploy360@IETF98, Day 3: IPv6, IoT & DTLS

Wednesday at IETF 98 in Chicago features a mix of IPv6, the Internet-of-Things and TLS-related working groups. Each day we’re bringing you blog posts pointing out what Deploy360 will be focusing on. The morning session offers a choice between the 6LO and PERC Working Groups. 6LO focuses on facilitating IPv6 connectivity over node networks with limited power, memory and processing resources, and Read more…


Deploy360@IETF98, Day 2: IoT, IPv6, TLS & SIDR

Tuesday is another busy day at IETF 98 in Chicago with sessions related to pretty much the whole Deploy360 portfolio. Each day we’re bringing you blog posts pointing out what Deploy360 will be focusing on. The morning session sees TLS busy with a significant update to the TLS protocol which is now in Last Call. There’s a companion update to DTLS, and also Read more…


Deploy360@IETF98, Day 1: IoT, IPv6, DNSSEC & TLS

It’s a busy week IETF 98 in Chicago, and we’ll be bringing you daily blog posts that highlight what Deploy360 will be focused on during that day. And Monday is the busiest day, with a couple of working groups on the Internet-of-Things, along with sessions relevant to IPv6, DNSSEC and TLS. The day kicks off at 09.00 CDT/UTC-6 with Homenet which is developing protocols Read more…


Our Hot Topics @ IETF 98

Next week is IETF 98 in Chicago which is the third time the IETF has been held in the Windy City. The Deploy360 team will be represented by Megan Kruse and Dan York this time, along with ISOC’s Chief Internet Technology Officer Olaf Kolkman. We’ll again be highlighting the latest IPv6, DNSSEC, Securing BGP and TLS related developments. Our colleagues are planning to cover the following sessions, Read more…


Comments? Internet Draft on DNSSEC Crypto Algorithm Agility

DNSSEC badge

What are the challenges in deploying new cryptographic algorithms for DNSSEC? As we look to move to using new crypto algorithms such as ECDSA, what are the barriers to getting those new algorithms rolled out? And how can we overcome those barriers? A few of us wrote an Internet Draft on this topic: draft-york-dnsop-deploying-dnssec-crypto-algs and Read more…

Deploy360@IETF97, Day 5: TLS, DNS, DHCPv6 & Annyeonghi Gaseyo

The final day at a IETF is usually pretty quiet for us, but not at the IETF 97. There’s four sessions of interest before we bid farewell to Seoul. The first session on Friday morning at 09.30 KST (UTC+9), see the second part of the TLS meeting continuing on from where it left off on Tuesday. After that, it requires a Read more…


Deploy360@IETF97, Day 4: SIDR, TLS & Even More IPv6

Thursday at IETF 97 should prove to be interesting day with the Sunsetting IPv4 Working Group meeting again, along with IPv6, TLS and secure routing related sessions. Each day we’re bringing you blog posts pointing out what Deploy360 will be focusing on. To kick off though, 6TiSCH is meeting at 09.30 KST (UTC+9) which is working on developing specifications for running IPv6 over the Time-Slotted Channel Read more…
