IETF 102, Day 5: Au revoir Montréal

By Kevin MeynellFormer Senior Manager, Technical and Operational Engagement

There’s just the couple of sessions to highlight on the last day of IETF 102 before we wrap up for the week.

V6OPS continues at 09.30 EDT/UTC-4 where it left off on Thursday afternoon. On the agenda are drafts relating to Multi-Addressing Considerations for IPv6 Prefix Delegation which considers prefix delegation considerations for both classic routing and various multi-addressing use cases; whilst IP over Ethernet (IPoE) Session Health Checking describes a mechanism for IP over Ethernet clients to achieve connectivity validation using PPP-style keepalives such as BFD Echo, or ARP and Neighbor Discovery functions.

The remaining draft proposes a method for Discovering Provisioning Domain Names and Data, which describes a way for hosts accessing the Internet via multiple interfaces and with possible multiple IPv6 prefixes, to identify themselves using Fully Qualified Domains as Provisioning Domain identifiers.

NOTE: If you are unable to attend IETF 102 in person, there are multiple ways to participate remotely.

The final session starting 11.50 EDT/UTC-4 includes IDR. This has been working on (amongst other things) the issue of route leaks, and is trying to pull together different conflicting approaches towards mitigation of these in favour of a more complementary approach. This work includes two drafts on Methods for Detection and Mitigation of BGP Route Leaks, and on Design Discussion of Route Leaks Solution Methods.

With that, IETF 102 draws to a close and we say au revoir to Montréal. Many thanks for reading along this week… please do read our other IETF 102-related posts … and we’ll see you at IETF 103 on 3-9 November 2018 which for the first time is being held in Bangkok, Thailand!
