Get ready for the death of the global internet. It won’t be pretty

The technologies and standards that underpin communication around the world are, for the most part, global and interoperable. From the microprocessor architectures that power everything we do, to the standards set by bodies such as the Internet Engineering Task Force, which oversees the way the internet works, and 3GPP, which has a similar role for mobile communications, we have developed an inexorable tendency to commonality.

Open Internet, open standards and why they matter by Patrik Fältström

... Unfortunately we are still going in the wrong direction. We see more and more silos being created. One interesting example here is calendaring and calendar objects. In the IETF we ultimately decided on a common syntax for the calendar object that could then be transported by email. This is why we can invite each other to meetings. But, in these discussions, there were many companies working with calendar software that didn’t want a common standard because of the commercial lure of selling both the server and the client side. They were hoping they could create a silo of calendar servers and clients they could sell. So from a market economy perspective silos are still attractive for companies and we see that today with all the systems moving into the cloud.

Discussing the future of RPKI

A recent discussion hosted by the RIPE NCC highlighted a number of key trends affecting the future of Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI). The event, which drew around 90 participants worldwide, is worth watching as it reveals progress on Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) origination, convergence in routing systems, and difficulties in securing the BGP. ... A final note, discussed in the web session, is the applicability of the APNIC Resource Tagged Attestation (RTA) initiative, which is re-entering the IETF standards process, after APNIC helped NLNet with funding for an implementation inside the 'Krill' system.

The W3C and IETF make WebRTC an official standard

Web Real-Time Communications (WebRTC) is now an official World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standard. WebRTC is a platform that provides real-time communication and collaboration services such as audio and video calling to browsers, mobile apps, and desktop apps. According to the organizations, this is especially important as the COVID-19 pandemic continues and businesses remain remote.

WebRTC becomes an official W3C and IETF standard

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) have announced that Web Real-Time Communications (WebRTC) is now an official web standard enabling audio and video communication anywhere on the web. While it has only just become a standard, it has been supported by popular web browsers for years.

Knowing The Importance of IPv4 Address Leasing

... In 1994, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), knowing there was a looming IPv4 tending to issue, started the advancement of another Internet Protocol rendition, IPv6. While the 32-cycle tending to IPv4 accommodates ~4.3 B addresses, IPv6’s 128-bits gives ~340 undecillion (for example 340 trillion, trillion, trillion or 3.4 x 1038) exceptional locations. The sheer size of this number is practically unimaginable.

Distinguishing Among DNS Services Part 3: Investment and Innovation

... Another is multi-provider DNS, an area for which Akamai recently contributed an innovation to the industry that promises to make the use of multiple DNS providers more efficient, as well as more secure, particularly with regard to managing CNAMEs at the zone apex. A new IETF standard called “Service binding and parameter specification via the DNS (DNS SVCB and HTTPS RRs),” which was co-authored by engineers from Akamai and Google, is designed to help customers optimize multi-provider DNS workflows. Our blog on that topic offers further detail, as well as other ways the service binding standard promises to benefit customers.

BGP: What is border gateway protocol, and how does it work?

... The definition of BGP from the IETF states that its primary function “is to exchange network reachability information with other BGP systems.” When it’s working smoothly, BGP makes these separate systems work in harmony to create the internet.

New Momentum for IPv6 Deployment

... IPv6 was created in 1998 by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) in response to the exhaustion of IP addresses available under IPv4. IPv4 was introduced in 1982 and employs a 32-bit address system to produce 4.29 billion unique IP addresses in the familiar 192.168.17.15 format.

... 1995年时我们可以跟欧洲相连了,是三个连接,刚好赶得上IETF的年会,非常成功的一个网络连接项目。澳联邦是非常有趣的例子,苏联解体之后,俄罗斯当时很穷,为了防止他们叛逃到黑暗世界,就开始资助这些科学家,通过科学基金资助俄罗斯的科学家,其中一个要求就是要连接互联网,让他们连到NSF上,后来NSF成为一个全球的网络。这跟NSF的项目一起完成的,大概1992年开始。蒙古是另外一件有趣的事情,美国驻蒙古大使当时想建立一些互联网连接,帮助经济的发展,同时美国的科学家也希望把互联网推广到蒙古,做地震分析、医学分析。当时它是一个在地震台所提供的连接。当时非常便宜的连接方案,就连上了蒙古,现在蒙古依然联结在NSF上。

Renewed Hope for the Internet of Things

Jan 25, 2021It would be an understatement to say that the past four years in general, the past year in particular, and especially the two months since the United States' November 2020 elections have been a whirlwind. Many are looking to 2021 to usher in new hope for the morale-damaged country and, by extension, for the entire world. Given President Joe Biden's choices to head the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), the outlook for the Internet of Things (IoT) sector may be looking a bit brighter.

The Rising Tide of Security Threats in The Industrial Internet of Things

Throughout Cyber Security Awareness Month in October, many organizations shared their thoughts on the state of cybersecurity and reflected on the processes and steps that can improve it. However, the discussion largely focused on protecting end-users rather than building security into networks and devices from a systemic perspective. In addition, through its theme of “If You Connect It, Protect It,” however, Cybersecurity Awareness Month has also opened the door to conversations about IoT cybersecurity.

Effective routing design for remote entanglement generation on quantum networks

Abstract: Quantum network is a promising platform for many ground-breaking applications that lie beyond the capability of its classical counterparts. Efficient entanglement generation on quantum networks with relatively limited resources such as quantum memories is essential to fully realize the network’s capabilities, the solution to which calls for delicate network design and is currently at the primitive stage. In this study we propose an effective routing scheme to enable automatic responses for multiple requests of entanglement generation between source-terminal stations on a quantum lattice network with finite edge capacities.

Deglobalization, Inequality and Digital Concentration Among Key Trends Shaping the Global Economy in 2021, Say Leading Chief Economists

Accelerating inequality, remote work and greater tech market dominance are among the pandemic’s emerging trends that are likely here to stay for some years. Beyond managing the pandemic and vaccine rollout, these trends could shape a new era of fiscal, monetary and competition policy, as well as bigger government. Deglobalization is seen as the least likely of current trends to continue in the longer term; particularly as international coordination is key to resolving global challenges such as vaccine manufacturing and distribution. These are some of the findings of the World Economic Forum’s Chief Economists Outlook, published today.
