[email protected], Day 5: IDR (Securing BGP), IPv6 and heading on to ION Tokyo

Minions at IETF91As the final day of IETF 91 opens there are only a few sessions left on the long IETF 91 agenda.  For us at Deploy360, our focus will mainly be on the Inter-Domain Routing (IDR) and IPv6 Maintenance (6MAN) meetings happening this morning.  Read on for more information…

NOTE: If you are not in Honolulu but would like to follow along, please view the remote participation page for ways you can listen in and participate.  In particular, at this IETF meeting all the sessions will have Meetecho coverage so you can listen, watch and chat through that web interface.  All agenda times are in HST, which is UTC-10 (and five hours earlier than US Eastern time for those in the US). I suggest using the “tools-style” agenda as it has easy links to the chat room, Meetecho and other documents for each session.

In the 9:00-11:30 HST block today the Inter-Domain Routing (IDR) is meeting in Coral 2 and it will be, as I understand it, a joint meeting with the SIDR working group that will focus on the proposed BGPSEC protocol.  The agenda is:

  • BGPSEC background/goals/context, Sandy Murphy
  • BGPSEC protocol walk-through, Matt Lepinski
  • BGPSEC protocol time, space analysis, K. Sriram
  • BGPSEC issues for implementors, John Scudder

It should be an interesting session that ties in well with our Securing BGP topic area.

Simultaneously over in the large Coral 3 room, the IPv6 Maintenance Working Group (6MAN) has a very full agenda of proposals to improve how IPv6 works.  For IPv6 fans such as me, this looks to be a great set of discussions!

The final block of sessions from 11:50-13:20 HST does not have any meetings directly tied to the topics we cover here, but I’m intrigued by a document in the Internet Area Open Meeting about tunnels in the Internet’s architecture that will probably be a good session to listen to.

And with that… our time here at IETF 91 in Honolulu will draw to a close.  We’ll have the Internet Society Advisory Council meeting this afternoon… and then we are all heading to Tokyo to present about IPv6, DNSSEC, BGP, BCOP and more at our ION Tokyo event on Monday!  (And you can watch ION Tokyo live via a webcast.)

Thanks for following us this week and to all those who greeted us at IETF 91!  See you next time in Dallas!

P.S. Today’s photo is from Jared Mauch and used with his permission.  NBC Universal, who sponsored the IETF 91 Welcome Reception, gave a stuffed “minion” out to anyone who wanted to have one.  Give some engineers something fun like this and… well… photos are bound to happen!  Jared had a good bit of fun coming up with some photos – you can see his “Minions” photo stream – and the minons were present in many other photos, such as this one I took.
