The topic for the technical plenary will be: Internet Hardening
 New reports of large-scale Internet traffic monitoring appear almost
 every day.  We were all aware that targeted interception was taking
 place, but the scale and scope in the recent reports is surprising.
 Such scale was not envisaged during the design of many Internet
 protocols; the threat is quite different than expected.  Now, the
 Internet community must consider the consequences.

 While details of these attack techniques remain largely unknown, we
 can talk about possible ways to harden the Internet in light of
 pervasive Internet monitoring.  We can take a closer look at our
 protocols and the security properties that they provide.

 A panel will summarize recent discussions and suggest potential IETF
 actions to make large-scale monitoring more difficult.

 a.  Introduction (Bruce Schneier)
      What we know and what we do not know.

 b.  Earlier IETF Debates (Brian Carpenter)
     The IETF has several cornerstone documents about Internet
     security and privacy, including RFCs 1984, 3365, 2804, and 6973.

 c.  Potential IETF Activities (Stephen Farrell)
     Summary of the discussion on the perpass mailing list.

4.  Thursday Lunch Speaker Series
Topic: Implications of “Network Functions Virtualisation”

Description: ETSI’s NFV initiative is tackling the virtualization of network appliances such as firewalls, NATs, load balancers, and beyond. Driven by the top 25 telecom operators, it promises a radical change to network deployments. This session provides an introduction to NFV, its motivations, the concepts behind “virtual network functions” and examines the implications for the underlying infrastructure network layer.

Serge Manning, Corporate Standards, Huawei (Moderator)
Diego R. Lopez, Global CTO Office, Telefonica
Evelyne Roch, Central Research, Huawei
Steven Wright, Standards & Industry Alliances, AT&T
