2. Techchat with ISOC

Leslie Daigle led the group consisting of IAB members and ISOC staff in a discussion of ISOC technical initiatives, and how they relate to other activities of the IAB and IETF. Leslie began with a summary of ISOC work in IPv6 education panels and deployment initiatives. They have been prompting content providers to add IPv6 services, at least in a test and evaluation capacity. They have also been working with GSM and wireless industry folks, and how the development of applications on mobile devices could effect the Internet. This led to a discussion of the what exactly defines “Internet Service”, a question that underlies much of the current network neutrality and policy discussions.

The group then moved into the topic of the Internet ecosystem, the set of collaborating organizations that work together to develop, deploy, and manage parts of the Internet and IP resources. Leslie noted the amount of energy in the operational world, in organizations like NANOG, Broadband advisory group, etc. ISOC is considering hosting a Internet technology users conference to help link operators with evolving technology coming out of the IETF (e.g., DNSSEC).

Lucy Lynch then summarized the ISOC work in the user identity space and information cards, as well as related areas of authentication, certificates, federation models, and circle of trust. They have been engaged on the issue of privacy and inline identity management, participating in various initiatives and forums on the topic.

The group then moved into a discussion of areas where the IAB and ISOC could coordinate. There are a number of research initiatives looking at the future of the Internet, some of which appear to be more politically driven than regional. The large number of actors in this area means that there are no single set of goals, and it is often challenging to assess how new technology can or will transition into the operational network. This observation led back to a discussion of IPv6 deployment, how to measure IPv6 deployment (e.g., traffic, DNS records, available content, etc), and the role that ISOC and the IAB might play in this space.
