Dan, thanks for forwarding this to the APN list.


I think it is important both to learn from history and not to simply repeat work that has already been done.


But in doing this, we should also understand the difference between the work of PANRG and APN. In some senses the way in which the application interacts with the lower layers may be the same: it classes its traffic flows and selects the network characteristics it wants for the traffic. But the difference appears (to me) to be that PANRG is concerned with selecting between transport-layer ‘paths’ for flows, while APN is concerned with routing packets that belong to the same flow.


Am I confused about this distinction?


The distinction is, I think, fairly fundamental with respect to how the behaviors might be delivered by the network. But:

*	The ways that the applications might communicate with the lower layers could be very similar (see also Network Tokens)
*	It is possible that the PANRG work might be ‘stacked’ over the APN work

Adding the PANRG chairs, in case I get something wrong about PANRG ...

This WG appears to be revisiting the issues of the expired trigtran wg. It might be useful to understand why that did not succeed and whether you are asking the same question twice and expecting a different answer. 


Joe. thank you for nudging me on this thread. 


PANRG ( <> ) has a draft about the history of Path-Aware Networking ( <> ), and why most path-aware networking technologies haven't been deployed, although it seems they should have been deployed (especially to the people who proposed them). 


TRIGTRAN specifically is covered in <> , but TRIGTRAN was one of eight technologies considered, and we found enough commonality to justify summarizing what we learned in 12 lessons ( <> ), and then considering whether what we've learned is still relevant ( <> ). Some are, some aren't. 


This document doesn't have any standing in the IETF, other than providing information, but I hope it's helpful for you (full disclosure, I'm the editor).

The possible usecases are also proposed for the APN work. Another goal of the side meeting is to clarify the security and privacy issues which are always proposed against such application-ware networking work. In RTGWG session held yesterday, the presentation of APN work discussed the possible scenarios related with the security and privacy issues. The following slides is for your reference:
