The IETF is not the ‘standards police’ by George Michaelson

“You can’t do that, the IETF said so” is something that nobody who actually knows the IETF would agree with. The problem is, outside of the IETF, a lot of people think this is how it works. Why do I bring this up, at this time? Well, a recent IETF draft has some rather unorthodox instructions, yet it makes an excellent point.

A Primer in Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP) Performance

Executive Summary: The DNS is essential to the overall functioning of the Internet. With millions of new domain names registered every year, it is important to have a mechanism that enables timely access to accurate details describing who has registered each domain. WHOIS has been the main communication protocol to query registration data for more than thirty-five years, however it presents several limitations such as lack of standardized query and response formats and inability to authenticate users. To overcome these limitations, in 2015, the IETF proposed a new protocol standardizing registration data access while supporting internationalized domain names (IDNs) and registration data, in addition to client authorization, and other features. Known as the Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP), this new protocol enables access to registration data for current domain names, IP addresses, and Autonomous System Numbers (ASNs).This study investigates the performance of the RDAP services that have been deployed as it is an ICANN requirement that generic top-level domain (gTLD) registries and ICANN-accredited registrars must implement an RDAP service by the end of August 2019.

OSCORE for IoT Security: Building Sustainable LPWAN Solutions, Part II

... Object Security for Constrained RESTful Environments (OSCORE) or RFC 8613 as the IETF calls it does some provides important benefits when compared to competing approaches:

G7 And Technical Standards: Blink And You Might Have Missed The New Battleground

... Traditionally, governments have had a hands-off approach in the development and deployment of standards related to the Internet; their development was part of the consensus-based, community-driven process developed and nurtured by the IETF and their deployment was left to the market. A standard’s life has always depended on its utility and contribution to the evolution of the Internet.

IAB Liaison Coordinator role established

The IAB has created a new Liaison Coordinator role as part of our effort to remodel our internal handling of our liaison oversight responsibility. With this effort, the IAB aims to maintain a better overview of all on-going liaison activities, to provide our liaison managers with better support, and be more actively involved when necessary as well as be able to react quickly as needed.

Call for Feedback on Community Coordination Group Appointments

On behalf of the IETF, the IAB appoints three representatives to the Community Coordination Group (CCG), which provides advice and guidance to the IETF Trust in matters related to the IANA trademarks and the IANA domain names. The process for appointing these representatives is outlined in RFC 8090.

Bluetooth: a viable solution for IoT? [Industry Perspectives]

Abstract: ... To achieve that, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) introduced Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), which was first specified in Bluetooth 4.0 [3] and further improved in Bluetooth 4.1 [4]. In addition, the Bluetooth stakeholders also expanded work on it, with the IETF working on the standardization effort of facilitating Bluetooth in exchanging IP packets.

Web Gerçek Zamanlı İletişimi (WebRTC) Nedir? Nerelerde Kullanılır? [What is Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC)? Where is it used?]

WebRTC ( Web Gerçek Zamanlı İletişimi ), web tarayıcılarına ve mobil uygulamalara basit uygulama geliştirme arayüzü (API’ler) aracılığıyla gerçek zamanlı iletişim (RTC) sağlayan ücretsiz, açık kaynaklı bir projedir. Direkt olarak eşler arası iletişime izin vermesi ile, eklenti yükleme veya uygulama indirme ihtiyacını ortadan kaldırarak, ses ve video iletişiminin web sayfalarında kolaylıkla kullanılmasını sağlar. Apple, Google, Microsoft, Mozilla ve Opera tarafından desteklenen WebRTC, World Wide Web Konsorsiyumu (W3C) ve İnternet Mühendisliği Görev Gücü (IETF) aracılığıyla standartlaştırılmaktadır.

WebRTCは開始から10年後に公式のWeb標準へ [WebRTC to become official web standard 10 years after its insocim]

Web Real-Time Communications(WebRTC)は、最近、World Wide Web Consortium(W3C)の推奨およびインターネット技術特別調査委員会(IETF)の標準になった。これは、WebRTCの長い道のりの主要なマイルストーンである。これは、Googleが主要な通信技術をオープンソース化し、エリクソンがConnectionPeer APIを実装することで、2011年に始まった。WebRTCワーキンググループがWebRTC Working Group strives to integrate 新しいユースケース(オーディオフィードとビデオフィードのライブ処理、モノのインターネットのユースケースなど)の統合に努めると共に、この新しい標準は進化し続ける。

ETSI releases Mitigation Strategy Report on Securing Artificial Intelligence

ETSI has recently released ETSI GR SAI 005, a report which summarizes and analyses existing and potential mitigation against threats for AI-based systems. Setting a baseline for a common understanding of relevant AI cyber security threats and mitigations will be key for widespread deployment and acceptance of AI systems and applications. This report sheds light on the available methods for securing AI-based systems by mitigating known or potential security threats identified in the recent ENISA threat landscape publication and ETSI GR SAI 004 Problem Statement Report. It also addresses security capabilities, challenges, and limitations when adopting mitigation for AI-based systems in certain potential use cases.

Is cybersecurity in rail more important now than ever?

Railway systems and operators are increasingly coming under attack from cyberthreats. Even European railways were not spared from data breaches and ransom threats. To counter cyberattacks, projects such as the 4SECURail – which allow to identify and share threats along the whole network – are being developed at the EU level. We find out if with these projects, cybersecurity is becoming more important now than ever before.

Improved BGP Routing Security Adds Another Important Layer of Protection to Online Networks

As part of our ongoing efforts to improve the robust security of our network and protection of our customers, we recently improved our Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) security by deploying Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) validation and signing across our network. These are important steps to ensure the security and reliability of the routing infrastructure of our network and other networks around the world that exchange packets with the Comcast network.

Zero-trust security: Assume that everyone and everything on the internet is out to get you – and maybe already has

President Joe Biden’s cybersecurity executive order, signed May 12, 2021, calls for the federal government to adopt a “zero-trust architecture.” This raises a couple of questions. What is zero-trust security? And, if trust is bad for cybersecurity, why do most organizations in government and the private sector do it?

China Standards 2035: How China plans to win the future with its own international tech standards

For two and a half centuries, international technology standards have been an engine for wealth creation and dominance largely belonging to the West. However, this is now changing. China is quickly stepping up, creating a new kind of competition – no longer about technological superiority – but about rule making and system design.

First Public Working Drafts: WebGPU and WebGPU Shading Language

The GPU for the Web Working Group has published the following two First Public Working Drafts: WebGPU: WebGPU exposes an API for performing operations, such as rendering and computation, on a Graphics Processing Unit; WebGPU Shading Language: WebGPU Shader Language (WGSL) is the shader language for WebGPU. That is, an application using the WebGPU API uses WGSL to express the programs, known as shaders, that run on the GPU.
