IETF IN THE NEWS

**********************

Finding a Foreign Policy for the Internet

... First, policymakers must center on the fact that individuals play a vital role in the internet. This means bringing individual engineers, academic teams, and civil society organizations more tightly into the implementation of any foreign policy for the internet. This also means not conflating companies and individuals, where the private sector is not a stand-in for unaffiliated individual designers, network operators, and researchers. The internet is shaped by protocols determined by hand signals in the IETF, core technologies developed and once maintained by academics, and a community of network operators whose rough consensus and running code determine the outcome of DDoS attacks and the bandwidth available for Game of Thrones.

Keeping up with DoT, DoH and HTTP/3 changes to your network by Paul Adair, Principal Product Manager, and David Ayers, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Infoblox.

DoT and DoH have been in the news a lot over the last couple of years. The reason being is that they have the potential to change the way the Internet functions. With Apple’s recent releases of iOS 14 and macOS 11 and new protocol efforts on-going at the IETF, we can now see how much things are changing. Even the United States National Security Agency (NSA) has newly posted guidance that organizations host their own DoH resolvers and avoid sending internal DNS traffic to external third-party resolvers.

SMPTE, MESA Collaborate on Metadata Standard

... "The Language Metadata Table was started at WarnerMedia in 2017 to normalize language codes within the organization, and IETF BCP 47 was selected due to its flexibility," said Yonah Levenson, LMT chair at MESA. "As interest in LMT as the M&E industry's language code solution increased, SMPTE recognized the value of the LMT and came on board as the technical partner/advisor."

Are emails addresses case sensitive?

... Originally, email addresses could only be registered using the letters of the Latin alphabet, numbers, and a limited set of special ASCII characters. However, the IETF subsequently developed rules and standards for the inclusion of international characters.

CoAP is Cool: Building Sustainable LPWAN Solutions, Part I

... Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) or RFC 7452, as the IETF calls it, is the perfect choice for solutions needing to get data from devices to the cloud where economic or technical constraints are present. Not sure if CoAP is right for you? Ask yourself the following questions:

HTTP-Header bekommen feste Struktur [HTTP headers have a fixed structure]

Die IETF hat den RFC 8941 als Standard veröffentlicht. Darin festgelegt werden sogenannte Structured Fields, also etwa strukturierte Felder, die den bisherigen Umgang mit den omnipräsenten HTTP-Headern deutlich vereinfachen sollen. Denn mit dem Standard wird eine klar definierte Syntax für HTTP-Header festgeschrieben, die deutlich restriktiver ist als die bisherigen eher freien Regeln für den Aufbau von HTTP-Headern.

Milliardendeal: Tinder kauft KI-Videochat [Billion-dollar deal: Tinder buys AI video chat]

... Hyperconnect hat nach eigenen Angaben die weltweit erste Mobilversion von WebRTC entwickelt. Dieser offene Standard verbindet Gesprächspartner direkt miteinander, ohne Umweg über einen Server. Das reduziert Latenzen. Seit Kurzem ist WebRTC offizieller Standard bei W3C und IETF.

Echtzeitkommunikation mit WebRTC [Real-time communication with WebRTC]

... WebRTC ist ein Open-Source Projekt, bestehend aus einer Reihe von Standards, die vom W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) und der IETF gesteuert werden und einen Media-Stack für die Echtzeitkommunikation für Web-Browser und mobile Endgeräte im Internet definieren. Die Funktionalitäten sind über verschiedene APIs, sprich Application Programming Interfaces erreichbar.

臺灣IPv6使用率已達50% : NCC : 為萬物聯網打下基礎 [Taiwan's IPv6 usage has reached 50%: NCC: laying the foundation for the Internet of Things]

... NCC表示,在5G行動通信標準帶動的萬物聯網風潮下,IPv6位址更是新技術與新應用發展的必要基礎,因此網際網路技術標準組織IETF早已決定新的協定標準以IPv6的環境為標準環境,故而因應5G大頻寬、更廣泛覆蓋範圍和超低延遲時間等運用所發展的新協定標準,也必然需要IPv6的使用環境才能真正發揮功能。

Encouraging vulnerability treatment: How policy makers can help address digital security vulnerabilities

Digital security risk undermines trust in digital transformation and generates significant economic and social costs. Estimates suggest that the cost of digital security incidents ranges between USD 100 billion and USD 6 trillion per year.  Digital  security  risk  also  poses  an  increasingly  serious threat  to  individuals’  safety,  as  more  consumers  and  businesses adopt vulnerable Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

This old security vulnerability left millions of Internet of Things devices vulnerable to attacks

'History's repeating,' warn security researchers, who find that a computer security issue that's been known about for decades could be used to manipulate IoT devices - so apply the patches now.

How Microsoft Could Redefine the Power Industry with Quantum Computing

Governments and tech companies have been investing heavily in quantum computing in the hopes that it will revolutionize cryptography, machine learning, chemistry, communication, and other fields. But it surprised me to learn that the much-talked-about technology also could have a great impact on energy, leading to cleaner fuel, lower emissions, and more efficient electrical power systems.

DNS Privacy In The Age Of Zero Trust

For the vast majority of its existence, DNS has been public by default, but renewed concerns about privacy have forced changes. Apple is now pushing DoH and DoT, which both allow devices to make DNS inquiries encrypted and to choose a trusted DNS server for most queries. Microsoft is pursuing a similar approach.

The Inventors of the Internet: An introduction to the people that invented the world we take so much for granted, and where to find out more about them.

Throughout the years I have worked with computers, I have been fascinated by the human story behind the technological breakthroughs — the people that changed the world. I have brought a few of the more prominent names together below, introducing their influence on the world we now take so much for granted.
