The number of subscribers to the IETF SYN-ACK Newspack keeps expanding, so for those that have come onboard since July, just a recap. The goal of the IETF SYN-ACK Newspack is 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 from a variety of freely available news outlets and other online publications on a weekly basis, every Monday. They do not represent the views of the IETF and are not checked for factual accuracy.

 

A few of the earlier subscribers have given feedback on this news service and it’s really valuable. So whether you’re a newcomer or one of the originals, please keep the feedback coming. In the first instance please send it to Greg Wood and if you wish, cc me in. We’ve made a number of changes, mostly to appearance and layout. But whether it’s layout, appearance, content and/or sources, if you’ve got comments, please let us know.

 

For now, happy reading and I hope you find it useful.

 

Kind regards,

David

Huawei’s Global Advancement of Alternative Internet Protocols

... The IETF, a nonprofit based in California and formed in 1986, is the primary open standards organization that develops voluntary internet protocols of this kind. IETF’s standards development process is principally guided by five goals: technical excellence; prior implementation and testing; clear, concise, and easily understood documentation; openness and fairness; and timeliness (IETF, undated). Members participating in IETF processes review proposals that, once ultimately agreed upon, can be voluntarily put into place by internet companies around the world. In addition to members from academic, research, and nonprofit communities, internet companies are themselves often heavily involved in IETF standards development processes.

JavaScript Turns 25

... JavaScript was always free, and Netscape revealed in its announcement post that it would propose JavaScript to the W3 Consortium (W3C) and the IETF as an open Internet scripting language standard. Today, the standardized version of JavaScript is called ECMAScript, after ECMA International (formerly called the European Computer Manufacturers Association).

Five Years of Lets Encrypt

... The success of Let's Encrypt was in only provisioning certificates with a limited lifetime – 90 days, to be precise. Before Let's Encrypt, certificates were generally created for an expiry of a year or two. This generally led to people forgetting about renewing the certificates, causing problems when the certificate subsequently expired, such as the Certificate Expiration problem on Azure in 2013. By enforcing a short certificate lifespan, it encouraged the development of automated solutions to acquire and renew certificates periodically. The ACMEv1 protocol was defined and created, and open-source utilities such as Certbot provided an easy means for an operating system to acquire and renew such certificates. The ACMEv1 protocol is now deprecated and the ACMEv2 protocol is now standardised as IETF RFC 8555 and now many ACMEv2 clients are available.

Expert discusses keeping it green as a top priority for 2021

... As political and commercial drivers focus more on sustainability, this suggests an interesting road ahead, with government-backed commercial incentives likely to help drive this. For example, The Industrial Energy Transformation Fund (IETF) will support the development of technologies that enable businesses with high energy use to transition to a low-carbon future. The fund provides £315 million of funding up to 2024 for projects starting before April 2022, with minimum grants of £250,000 to support technologies such as more efficient cooling (Heat Exchange) systems.

Internet-Filter: Endlich klare Fehlermeldungen [Internet-Filter: Finally clear error messages]

Von der politischen Agenda, etwa in der EU, sind Filterideen für allerlei Inhalte nicht mehr wegzudenken. Für DNS-Filter zieht die Technik nun nach. Die IETF will versuchen, den Grund für gescheiterte DNS-Anfragen transparenter zu machen. Dafür hat die Organisation eine neue RFC-Spezifikation aufgelegt (Request For Comment). Im nächsten Schritt will eine kleine Gruppe noch einen Schritt weitergehen und die Möglichkeit vorsehen, die filternde Institution mittels einer eigenen URI anzuzeigen.

.NET 5 Runtime Improvements: from Functional to Performant Implementations

Software architects from the .NET runtime team recently presented several .NET 5 runtime improvements and how they achieved them. At .NET Conf 2020, Rich Lander, principal program manager on the .NET team, and Stephan Toub and Jan Kotas, software architects on the .NET team, conducted an online session entitled ".NET 5 Runtime Deep Dive with Rich Lander and the Architects". During this no-slides session, they covered various .NET 5 runtime improvements, including ARM64 support, HTTP/3, and support for single-file applications.

Microsoft zeigt erste Pläne für .NET 6.0 [Microsoft is showing initial plans for .NET 6.0]

Rund einen halben Monat nach dem Erscheinen von .NET 5.0 am 10. November 2020 hat Microsoft erste Pläne für die Version 6.0 veröffentlicht, die im November nächsten Jahres erscheinen soll. Die Planung ist auf GitHub aufgeteilt in zahlreiche Themes, Epics und User Stories verfügbar. Zur einfacheren Übersicht bietet Microsoft die Website themesof.net mit einer hierarchischen Darstellung an. ... Auch an der Integration von Google RPC will Microsoft weiterarbeiten. So sollen sich fehlgeschlagene API-Aufrufe automatisch wiederholen lassen (Client Retry Support), und man will allgemein die Performance von gRPC und ASP.NET Core weiter steigern. Zudem soll .NET 6.0 auch HTTP/3 auf Basis von Quick UDP Internet Connections (QUIC) anstelle von TCP anbieten.

DNS-over-TLS (DoT) vs. DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) a šifrování DNS v Knot Resolveru [DNS-over-TLS (DoT) vs. DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) and DNS encryption in Knot Resolver]

Než se pustíme do podrobností, koukněme na následující diagram, který stručně ilustruje klíčové rozdíly mezi DoT a DoH. První věc, které si můžete všimnout, je to, že DoH je uveden hned dvakrát: jako DoH s protokolem HTTP/2 a DoH s protokolem HTTP/1.1. Kromě podobného názvu nemají tyto protokoly nic společného – zatímco HTTP/2 je protokol binární, HTTP/1.1 je textově orientovaný. ... TCP také trpí problémem head-of-line blokování na úrovni transportního protokolu. Zdá se, že konečným řešením by mohlo být upuštění od TCP ve prospěch jiného protokolu, jako je QUIC. Možná, že se v budoucnu DNS-over-QUIC ukáže být lepší než DoT nebo DoH.

Expanding our commitment to secure Internet routing

As we’ve all seen firsthand this year, our universal dependence on a secure and reliable internet has never been greater. The global response to the pandemic highlights all of the ways we rely on the internet to ensure that families stay connected with one another, patients receive care, students continue to learn, and businesses continue to operate.

Cybersecurity Predictions for 2021: Robot Overlords No, Connected Car Hacks Yes

Predicting the future is always an iffy proposition. There’s the Nostradamus route, making predictions so cryptic and vague they could mean just about anything. Or you can go the TV psychic route and throw a handful of darts at the wall, highlighting the ones that stick and hope everyone ignores the many misses.

The Future of Cybersecurity: How to Prepare for a Crisis in 2020 and Beyond

When it comes to the future of cybersecurity, an ounce of prevention is worth far more than a pound of cure. According to the Ponemon Institute and IBM Security’s 2020 Cost of a Data Breach Report, enterprises that designated an incident response (IR) team, developed a cybersecurity incident response plan (CSIRP) and tested their plan using tabletop exercises or simulations, saved an average of $2 million in data breach costs. These savings were compared to companies that didn’t take these preparatory steps.

uk: How the internet of things can help create a better new normal

On March 16, prime minister Boris Johnson told everyone in the UK who could do so to work from home. Across the country, office buildings emptied almost overnight. Couriers were summoned to ferry monitors and computers from offices to homes and the streets were packed with people making one final commute. Back then, few would have imagined they would not set foot in their office again this year. And, when they next do, much will have changed.

A Broken Piece of Internet Backbone Might Finally Get Fixed

This spring, services from heavy hitters like Google and Facebook seemed glitchy or inaccessible for people worldwide for more than an hour.
