ISOC’s Hot Topics at IETF 102

By Kevin MeynellFormer Senior Manager, Technical and Operational Engagement

The 102nd meeting of the IETF starts tomorrow in Montreal, Canada. This is will be the third time that an IETF has been held in the city, and tenth time in Canada – the first being way back in 1990.

The ISOC Internet Technology Team is as always highlighting the latest IPv6, DNSSEC, Securing BGP, TLS and IoT related developments, and we discuss these in detail in our Rough Guide to IETF 102. But we’ll also be bringing you daily previews of what’s happening each day as the week progresses.

Below are the sessions that we’ll be covering in the coming week. Note this post was written in advance so please check the official IETF 102 agenda for any updates, room changes, or final details.
