Please note that both the Technical Plenary and Administrative Plenary will be held on Wednesday, 6 November. The Technical Plenary will be held from 0900-1130 and the Operations and Administrative Plenary will be held from 1740-1940. More information on the Preliminary Agenda can be found at:

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.
