Just a reminder the IETF wants you to complete the SYN-ACK handshake and share your feedback through a 6-question survey that should take no more than 2 minutes to complete. It would mean a lot to help with how useful the newsletter is and how to improve it. Results go directly to IETF. To complete the brief survey, go to:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2DYNMNC

 

Don’t forget, the IETF SYN-ACK Newspack aims to help track where, when, and how IETF-related issues are presented in a variety of news outlets and other online publications around the world.

Experts Predict More Digital Innovation by 2030 Aimed at Enhancing Democracy: 4. It’s all just history repeating itself

... A longtime participant in the IETF commented, “Society has been getting more divided into ideological camps over the last decade, and each of the camps has been using technology to try to disrupt the others. I do not see that changing, and such divisions will tend to stifle social progress.”

Mozilla Firefox und Comcast kooperieren für DNS over HTTPS [Mozilla Firefox and Comcast collaborate for DNS over HTTPS]

... DoH soll dabei helfen, das DNS gegen mithörende Dritte abzusichern, sowohl auf die Erstellung von Profilen erpichte Unternehmen, als auch auf Vollspeicherung getrimmte Geheimdienste. Das bei der IETF standardisierte Protokoll sorgte anders als sein kurz zuvor entwickelter Konkurrent, DNS über TLS (DoT), für hitzige politische Debatten, weil Mozilla dezentral abgewickelten DNS-Verkehr zunächst über einen einzigen zentralen Provider, den US-DNS-Anbieter Cloudflare, abwickeln wollte. So hoch schlugen die Wogen insbesondere in Europa, dass Mozilla die Implementierung zunächst auf US-Nutzer beschränkte.

Internet holds the key to the post-coronavirus era

The coronavirus pandemic has taught us that the skillful and sensible use of the internet will allow us to navigate through this crisis with the minimum possible damage. ... A forum called the IETF promotes the technological standards of the internet. IETF brings together communities which have created organizations working on related plans and policies. The most cited phrase among these communities is “We reject kings, presidents, and voting. We believe in rough consensus and running code,” by David Clark, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

What is an X.509 Certificate? | Keyfactor

... In 1993, X509 version 2 added two new fields: Issuer Unique Identifier and Subject Unique Identifier. These fields are now considered deprecated by the IETF, and should not be used in your certificates. The widespread use of the Internet inspired further development of the hierarchical naming system.

ICANN Registrar Stakeholder Group Leadership Handover by Tobias Sattler 

... Tobias Sattler: We have implemented and achieved a lot together. If I have to highlight any of these, then it was the founding of the TechOps group. Imagine it like a think tank to address the technical and operational needs and challenges of registries and registrars. At TechOps, we had our share on ICANN's Temporary Specification, wrote IETF Internet-Drafts to solve operational issues, and did a whitepaper on a possible new future of domain transfers.

Este es el rendimiento de TLS 1.3 y SSH con algoritmos post-cuánticos [This is the performance of TLS 1.3 and SSH with post-quantum algorithms]

... Actualmente el NIST se está encargando de estandarizar diferentes algoritmos post-cuánticos, es decir, que sean capaces de resistir la potencia de los futuros ordenadores cuánticos, y que nos proporcionen una seguridad similar a la actual donde no tenemos este tipo de ordenadores. La IETF tiene múltiples borradores, y los «grandes» de Internet como Cisco, Microsoft, Cloudflare, Google o Amazon Web Services ya los están probando, concretamente los de intercambio de clave y autenticación en TLS.

Apple invita gli sviluppatori ad usare IPv6 perché più veloce di IPv4 [Apple urges developers to use IPv6 because it's faster than IPv4]

... La Casa di Cupertino guarda già avanti e in macOS 11 Big Sur e iOS 14 ha già integrato il supporto sperimentale per HTTP/3, nuova versione del protocollo Hypertext Transfer Protocol usato per il World Wide Web nonché il successore di HTTP/2, attualmente in fase di standardizzazione presso l’IETF. Il supporto TLS 1.3 – riferisce ZDNet – è per default disabilitato ed è incluso sui dispositivi Apple solo per scopi sperimentali e tocca all’utente/sviluppatore abilitarlo.

Wie sichere Tools dabei helfen, Fehler zu vermeiden [How secure tools help to avoid errors]

... Die Corona-Pandemie wird sicher nicht die letzte Krise gewesen sein. Allerdings braucht es nicht unbedingt einen globalen Ausnahmezustand, um durch unzureichende Sicherheit Geld in Millionenhöhe zu verlieren. Die Arbeitsgruppe der IETF hat sich deshalb näher mit der Fragestellung auseinandergesetzt, wie die Kommunikation und der damit verbundene Datentransfer dauerhaft abgesichert werden können. Aus diesen Erkenntnissen heraus wurde die Technologie der Messaging Layer Security (MLS) entwickelt. Sie könnte ein bedeutender Schritt nach vorne sein und verspricht eine verschlüsselte, flexible und sichere Kommunikation über verschiedene Endgeräte.

牟承晋:坚定互联网底线思维 打造网信科技创新体系 [Mu Chengjin: firm Internet bottom-line thinking to build a net letter science and technology innovation system]

... IPv6与IPv4互不操作(俗称相互不兼容),迫使只能在因特网框架内重建与IPv4并行、相对独立的IPv6网络系统。在因特网骨干网络上爆发的IPv6资源管理之间相互冲突,导致严重的网络拥堵,表明IPv6在实际应用中还不具备与IPv4并存的网络生存环境。美国近20年的探索认为,部署IPv6至少面临转发表项容量快速下降、IPv4与IPv6互通困难、两张网共存难以运维等很多安全系数极不稳定的现实问题,IPv6过渡计划是费钱、费力又得不到更多好处的事情。2017年7月14日,美国因特网工程任务组(IETF)发布RFC8200号文件,声明废弃(废止)1998年12月的RFC2460号文件“IPv6规范草案”以及IPv6“下一代互联网协议IPng”过渡计划。

5G承载网络切片管控技术研究 [Research on 5G Bearer Network Slicing Management and Control Technology]

... 当前,在承载网北向接口中采用信息模型对网络资源及操作进行建模,由于北向接口面向上层应用,可以屏蔽底层网络技术的细节,使得网络模型和具体的网络实现方案无关,仅需标识网络的能力信息。在北向接口的建模方面,ONF的OIMT工作组定义了传送应用编程接口(TAPI)信息模型[3],TAPI模型是一种抽象的网络模型,天然具备网络虚拟化的能力,可以用于VN网络资源的描述,但是具体的VN网络操作需要进一步扩展。IETF提出的ACTN架构[4]定义了客户管控接口(CMI)的接口模型[5],用于客户网络和多域协调控制器的交互;ACTN模型定义了VN的相关对象,如VN拓扑、接入点、VN业务(VNS)等,同时扩展了网络的能力信息,例如层1连接业务模型(L1CSM)、层2业务模型(L2SM)等;IETF、ONF提出的VN管控模型,对5G承载网络的多层网络能力信息的描述,以及对VN网络的操作等定义仍需进一步完善。

One year of BGP (in)security

The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) has played a key role in sustaining Internet growth since its commercialization in the early 90s. Despite turning 30 years old last June, its current version (RFC 4271) is still recognized as the de facto standard inter-domain routing protocol used by Autonomous Systems (ASes) to exchange routing information with each other.

Cerf's 2020 vision with the benefit of 20/20 hindsight

"There are some things that I wish I could have done, but I'm not sure that I would have gotten away with it." So says Vint Cerf, VP and Chief Internet Evangelist at Google. Along with TCP/IP co-developer Bob Kahn, Vinton Gray Cerf is traditionally referred to as one of the fathers and architects of the Internet, for the pair’s 1974 paper on ARPANET, work on which began in the previous year.

Will the Tech Workplace Ever Be the Same Again?

As the COVID-19 pandemic began its explosive spread through the United States, tech workers were among the first to switch to working at home in mass numbers. By early March, before regional stay-at-home orders came into play, most tech professionals at Microsoft and Amazon had switched to working at home, others would soon follow. Since then, Twitter announced that it would offer work-at-home as a permanent option to many of its employees, and Facebook also began planning for a large work-from-anywhere staff, but indicated that salaries would be adjusted to account for regional costs of living. On the other end of the spectrum, Apple developed a plan to bring employees back to the office in phases, starting this month.
