Call for volunteers or nominations for the IETF Delegate to the ICANN 2022 Nominating Committee

The IAB (on behalf of the IETF) has been asked to supply a member to the 2022 ICANN Nominating Committee (NomCom). Peter Koch has filled this role for the IETF community for the past two years and cannot seek another term due to term limits; the IAB thanks him for his service. The IAB would therefore like to ask the community for volunteers to serve on the ICANN NomCom. The IAB will appoint one person for a one-year term (renewable for one additional one-year term).

RPKI ReadTheDocs

Looking at the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) landscape today, it is vastly different from two to three years ago. At the time, resource holders around the world had created a considerable amount of Route Origin Authorization (ROAs), but actually using RPKI data to perform Route Origin Validation (ROV) was only done by a handful of networks. As the interest in RPKI was ramping up in leaps and bounds, I noticed during meetings and online conversations there were a lot of misconceptions about what RPKI can and cannot do. The more than 40 Requests For Comment (RFCs) that describe RPKI aren’t always helpful in this regard, as they will just give you the idea that it’s an X.509 PKI in which certificates and other signed objects that make use of Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) using an ASN.1 profile are published, without even mentioning it’s for routing security. This is to be expected of an IETF document of course, as the RFCs naturally focus on intricate details of the syntax and encoding of data needed by implementers.

Massive IoT Interop Fuels Protocol Battle

... While it may have been easy conceptually to rally around an IP-based network, there were still many concerns that needed to be addressed in order for things to operate smoothly on a large scale. “802 15.4g is the underlying radio technology,” said Beecher. “And then we took a number of IPv6-type standards from the IETF, including the routing layer and security standards, and we integrated all of them into a single specification.”

Poor Connector and Cable Choices Cause Failures. Here's how to Avoid That Fate

Examples of such demonstration activities include the telecom community’s IETF Hackathon and the BBF Interoperability PlugFest, among many others. Without ways to test software security or physically test interoperability between hardware, engineers and product vendors won’t be sure if the new or updated standard specifications will work.

With colorful logos against phishing: Gmail receives BIMI

... No changes are necessary on the user side. BIMI saw the light of day a long time ago and should also become a standard of the IETF – but failed with this project in 2019 because the approach is only worthwhile for large companies and there were also fears that users would be tracked via the graphics.

Open Caching: Erholung für überlastete Netze [Open Caching: Recovery for Congested Networks]

... Zwar arbeitet die IETF an einheitlichen Spezifikationen für die Verknüpfung von CDNs, ihr Ansatz ist allerdings sehr breit angelegt und für einige Einsatzbereiche wie Videostreaming nicht besonders gut geeignet. Die Streaming Video Alliance (SVA), in der sich Content-Provider, ISPs, Cloud-Spezialisten, CDN-Betreiber und Software-Anbieter zusammengeschlossen haben, entwickelt deshalb in ihrer Open Caching Working Group eigene Spezifikationen für die standardisierte Verbindung von CDNs für das Streaming von Videos.

Hologram, la rete per l’IoT Cellular Connectivity [Hologram, the network for IoT Cellular Connectivity]

... Come osservato: “I tag RFID hanno rappresentato uno dei primi esempi in tale ambito. Tuttavia, nel tempo sono emerse nuove tecnologie in grado di rendere più efficiente la comunicazione tra gli oggetti. Tra esse spicca lo standard IEEE 802.15.4 e, soprattutto, il suo recente emendamento IEEE 802.15.4e, in grado di incrementare notevolmente l’affidabilità dei collegamenti a radio frequenza e l’efficienza energetica, grazie all’adozione del meccanismo di accesso al mezzo Time Slotted Channel Hopping. Queste tecnologie di più basso livello, quando integrate in architetture protocollari basate sul protocollo IP, possono dar concretamente vita alla visione dell’Internet delle cose, essendo in grado di dialogare con i nodi della rete Internet. In tal senso, è importante menzionare i protocolli IETF 6LoWPAN, RPL, e CoAP, in grado di creare operativamente una rete IP di oggetti che può dialogare con la rete Internet per creare nuovi servizi in molteplici domini applicativi”.

Zero trust is an important information security architectural shift. Cyber breaches have increased in intensity, frequency and most alarmingly, impact, causing many organizations to try to figure out how to manage continuous cyber threats, while still communicating and maintaining trust to their stakeholders. Attestation can provide system-level remediation and resiliency, while ensuring transparency of compliance with industry security controls and benchmarks.

How African states can tackle state-backed cyber threats

At first glance, the ability of most African states to prevent or respond to a cyberattack by state-backed hackers would appear limited. African countries tend to have low levels of cyber maturity and possess limited offensive and defensive cyber capabilities. Virtually all rely on foreign actors to supply critical information infrastructure and manage data using cloud technologies.

I've spent more time IoT'ing my house over the last year than any sane person ever should. But hey, it's been strange times for all of us and it's kept me entertained whilst no longer travelling. Plus, it's definitely added to our lives in terms of the things it enables us to do; see them in part 5 of my IoT unravelled blog series. But it also remains a complete mess and I want to demonstrate why based on some recent experiences:

Autonomous vehicles as a “killer app” for AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) is used in a wide variety of products and services, including maps embedded on our smart phones and “chat bots” that help answer our questions on websites. Many hope that AI will transform our economy in ways that drive growth, similar to how steam engines did in the late 19th century and electricity did in the early 20th century. But it is hard to imagine that maps on smart phones, chatbots, and other existing AI-enabled services will drive the type of economic growth we saw from stream and electricity. What we need to see are some dramatic new AI-enabled products and services that transform our way of life—in short, we are waiting for an AI “killer app.”

Data transmission speed record clocks blistering 319 Terabits per second

The world record for fastest internet speed has been utterly shattered as Japanese engineers have demonstrated a data transmission rate of 319 Terabits per second (Tb/s) through optical fibers. The record was set over more than 3,000 km (1,864 miles) of fibers, and is apparently compatible with existing cable infrastructure.

Should Europe mandate IPv6 to accelerate adoption? by Marco Hogewoning, Manager of Public Policy and Internet Governance, RIPE NCC

June marked the 9th anniversary of “IPv6 Launch Day”, a global effort on 6th June 2012 in which leading Internet companies and access providers, including Google and Facebook, switched on IPv6 for their services. The idea was not only to lead by example, but also to make clear the migration to IPv6 was feasible and had limited risks to the stability of the networks and services that make up the Internet.
