Deploy360 3 November 2015

[email protected], Day 3: TLS, 6MAN & Internet-of-Things

By Kevin MeynellSenior Manager, Technical and Operational Engagement

ROW workshop at IETF 92The third day at IETF 94 in Yokohama brings a bit of a scheduling conflict for the Deploy360 team with both the TLS and IPv6 Maintenance sessions being held at the same time.

There’s also an overlapping meeting of the proposed Thing-to-Thing Research Group which has implications for the Deploy360 technologies, so with just two of us on the ground this time, something will have to miss out.


NOTE: If you are unable to attend IETF 94 in person, there are multiple ways to participate remotely.


The 6man (IPv6 Maintenance) Working Group will be meeting during the 09.00-11.30 UTC+9 block and will be discussing proposed updates to the IPv6 specification, addressing architecture and neighbour discovery as currently defined in RFC 2460, RFC 4291 and RFC 4861.

At the same time, the tls (Transport Layer Security) Working Group over in Room 303 will be covering the various logged issues related to TLS 1.3. The ongoing usage of SHA-1 which has known weaknesses has also generated substantial discussion on the mailing list recently, so this may come up during the session.

There’s only the Report to the IETF on the agenda of the proposed t2trg (Thing-to-Thing Research Group) that runs from 10.30-11.30 UTC+9, but perhaps worth following if the Internet-of-Things interests you.

The afternoon is devoted to the Operations, Administrative and Technical Plenary that runs from 15.30-18.30 UTC+9.

For more background, please read the Rough Guide to IETF 94 from Andrei, Mat, Karen, Dan and myself.
