This is a belated follow up to the Interim meeting and IETF110 discussion on the topic of "IP Address Privacy".

There appeared to be interest in working on one or more documents to capture the current status and future research directions in this space. A general proposal for such work could include:

* An analysis of the current use cases, attempting to categorise/group such use cases where commonalities exist
* Generating requirements for proposed 'replacement signals' from this analysis (these could be different for each category/group of use cases)
* Research to evaluate existing technologies or propose new mechanisms for such signals

One request was to have a broad scope for the range of use cases considered. We may need a first pass at the initial analysis to see if this is really feasible. 

The chairs would like to hear if
1) The above is a reasonable summary of work that folks think could/should be done in PEARG
2) If people are interested in volunteering to work on some or all of this

Please let us know your thoughts on this topic during the next couple of weeks. Before the end of May, we’ll try to summarise the responses and the plan for moving forward. 

Best regards

Sara, on behalf of the chairs.
