2. IAB Plenary Topics for IETF 71

A subcommittee, led by Barry, had been set up to find a topic and speaker for the IAB plenary session in Philadelphia. The IAB briefly discussed this committee’s short list of topics:

  • low-power/lossy networks
  • net neutrality
  • Internet television
  • There was agreement that all three topics are interesting. The IAB selected Internet TV as the topic for Philadelphia, and discussed the possibility of net neutrality as a topic for a future plenary. The group then considered potential speakers for the Internet TV topic:

  • Barry will contact Keith Ross
  • Olaf will contact Marshall Eubanks
  • Others will pursue contacts in France, at BBC, at Joost
  • Results of speaker contacts will be discussed on an upcoming business call.

    3. Techchat – Arbor Networks’ Arbor Statistics Program

    Danny McPherson presented material on Arbor Networks’ Arbor Statistics Program. Some notable elements of the discussion:

  • the program does traffic analysis and attach detection
  • examples of the data collected and the statistics produced
  • details of some anomalies detected, discussion of the attacks
  • discussion of ATLAS – Arbor Threat Level Analysis System
  • 4. IAB Response to NomCom

    The IAB entered an executive session to discuss NomCom and IESG candidates. It was decided that additional information about candidates was needed; the IAB will coordinate with NomCom on the matter. IAB liaisons and the IETF chair did not participate in the executive session.
