We are having an exploratory "birds of a feather" meeting tonight (Monday 30th) here at the Vancouver IETF after the IAB Plenary session about 7:30PM.  We will meet then and determine where we can talk; contact me if you don't find us.

My Interest:

I've been working in critical infrastructure at some level most of my career.  About 2005 I became involved in working on the standards for the Next Generation of Air Traffic Management Networks with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), a UN sister agency to the ITU, to create the top level standards for this.

Our current global ATM network is based on an early eighties unique version of OSI.  Since it has no cyber security capabilities, current communications with the aircraft do not carry any flight critical information or interface to flight critical systems.  The vision for the Next Generation ATM systems would like to do more (but still unlikely to interface with flight critical systems) to enhance global commercial aviation operations to both shorten flight times and increase airport capacity.  They also want to build based on Internet standards as the OSI communications systems are custom procurements and still utilize mostly very low bandwidth ( 2kiloBIT and 38 kiloBIT) links.  And of course they need IPv6.

One of the challenges that you have probably run into is that it is difficult to find the right standards to utilize to build "secure networks" especially if you have 140+ entities (nation states in ICAO case) to interoperate with.

CIN hopes to define at least informational RFCs on what standards to recommend to use for basic network infrastructure, services, (i.e. routing, network services, address assignment, multi-link management and mobility, etc.) and cyber security to make designing secure environments based on Internet standards easier.  And (at least I suspect) we may find in the process that some new standards or updates are needed to fill gaps in the existing Internet technology to do this.

By definition, perfect security cannot exist and I, for one, don't want to tackle that.   But I do think we can make designing "secure networks" much easier.

Take care
