Dear all,

I'm deeply sorry for the delay of the minutes from the last interim. 
Please apologize. My minute taking during the last interim was somewhat 
incomplete because of technical issues. Please check the minutes below 
and send me correction or addition until Thursday evening. After that I 
will upload the minute to the data tracker.

Gont, Watson Ladd

1.  Administrative and Agenda Bashing

	- No agenda bashing
	- No objection to record the meeting
	- Tal: Slides are not online yet
2.  TICTOC quick document status

	- YANG data model is published as RFC 8575
	- IEEE 1588 Enterprise Profile is submitted to the IESG.
	- After publication of the Enterprise Profile the TICTOC WG will be 

3.  NTP quick document status
	- BCP is in Editor Queue
	- MAC draft is in Auth 48
	- Shepard writeup for the drafts NTS for NTP und Guidelines for 
Defining Packet
	  Timestamps are in preparation
	- Draft YANG Data Model for NTP in Yang Doctor review
4.  Discussion on documents (working group and individual) that have 
been updated	
	- Interleave Mode
		- Miroslav: updated a new version. Changes in request of the last 
		  Two paragraphs have been changes. Ready to be advanced. No 
		- Summary: this draft is going to the IESG
	- Roughtime
		- nobody of the authors are online
	- Correction field and Short Extension field
		- Miroslav: No changes to both documents
		- Summary (Karen): will leave it on the list and looking for the 
progress of the
		  various extension field draft
	- Port Randomization
		- F Gont: The usage of port 123 of NTP traffic is not necessary.
		  Various research has found that the usage of predictable port
		  number is problematic and should be avoided.
		- F Gont: This I-D will make NTP compliant to BCP 156.
		- Danny: Presumably this draft improves security. It does not improve
		- F Gont: An attacker has to guess what port is in use. Randomization 
will make
		  this more difficult
		- Danny: does not accept the arguments
		- Karen: any other comments
		- Gont: this is the same discussion as with other protocols years ago
		- Gont: the problem applies to to all transport protocols
		- Karen further comments?
		- Miroslav: this is useful and should be adopted
		- Karen: any other question
		- Kristof: should be adopted to be discussed
		- F Gont: most NTP implementation already randomize the port number.
		- Danny: Problem with a NTP instance that is a client and a server. 
What do you
		- Harlan: the client can already use other port number
		- F Gont: It is not good practice to leave this decision to the 
		- Danny: there are not only four variable that identify an association 
but five
		- F Gont: This is ture of the application layer. I speak about the 
		  layer. This draft improves security on the transport layer
		- Watson: we had issues because of the fixed port number 123. DDoS 
		- Karen (without the chair's hat): we need to have better reasoning 
for adopting
		  this draft.
		- F Gont: this draft follows the work of the transport area and which 
		  formulated as a BCP. The Transport area should be involved.
		- Karen: the argument that there is a BCP is very compelling. We 
should seriously
		  consider to adopt it.
		- Danny: just because there is a BCP it does not apply to any 
		- Karen: That true, but we need to consider the BCP and have to 
formulate that
		  it does not apply to NTP.
		- F Gont: you need to make a good argument that the BCP does not apply 
for NTP
		- Summary (Karen): we need to consider the BCP and have to decide 
later if we
		  adopt this draft.
	- Roughtime
		- Watson: Usage of MJD for leap second issues, some other changes, ...
		- Karen: further question?
		- Discussion about the need to consider delay attacks and  bounded RTT 
in the
		  draft (Tal, Watson, Kristof)
		- Summary (Karen): Please, think about this and discuss it on the 
mailing list
