Internet Society Liaison Report to the IAB 24 September 2012 Topics: I. IETF Journal online updates II. CEPT meeting on WCIT III. ENISA IV. OECD Internet Technical Advisory Committee V. Berlin Conference on the "Internet and Human Rights" VI. CITEL ISOC Sponsored Internet Standards Seminar VII. CITEL PCC1 WCIT and WTSA Discussions I. IETF Journal online updates IETF Journal content is now being published online as soon as it has been edited and approved for publication by the Editorial Board. This will help to make the content more timely, and will increase the frequency of IETF Journal social media announcements. II. CEPT meeting on WCIT The European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations (CEPT) held a preparatory meeting for WCIT-12 and WTSA-12 in Copenhagen, on 10-14 September 2012. The aim was to finalize as many European Common Positions (ECPs) as possible. Many positions have firmed up, but some issues remain to be further discussed (e.g. whether to use the term Recognized Operating Agencies, or simply Operating Agencies, which can have an impact on the scope of the treaty). ETNO was present at the meeting with a delegation of six persons, headed by chair Luigi Gambardella, to advocate for their positions on QoS and Sender-Network-Party-Pays, with specific text submitted. ISOC was represented by Nicolas Seidler who presented the ISOC paper on IP-Interconnection and directly addressed the ETNO proposals. There was a lively debate, and while some CEPT countries are reserving their position for the next CEPT meeting, a majority of countries have rejected the inclusion of ETNO's text. The last CEPT meeting before Dubai will be held in Istanbul on 15-18 October. III. ENISA ISOC, represented by Constance Bommelaer, participated for the first time in a meeting of the European Network and Information Security Agency’s Permanent Stakeholders’ Group (PSG). The meeting was held in Athens on 13-14 September 2012. The aim of the group is to signal cyber security trends to ENISA's Board, composed of EU Member States. The following key issues have been identified by past PSG members for 2013: 1/Evolving risk environment and opportunities 2/ Improving Pan- European CIIP & Resilience 3/ Supporting the CERT and other operational communities. In 2012-2013, the group's mandate will be to draft the agency's work program for 2014. IV. OECD Internet Technical Advisory Committee ISOC is leading coordination of the OECD Internet Technical Advisory Committee (ITAC) for the 2012 Technology Foresight Forum (22 October). The Forum will focus this year on "Big Data". The annual ITAC meeting is organized back to back with the Forum and will gather representatives from all ITAC members as well as high-level OECD staff and representatives from other stakeholder groups. Discussions will focus on key Internet-related OECD issues of interest to ITAC organizations (IPv6, Security, Privacy, etc.), continuing to professionalize ITAC (coordination mechanisms, website, communications, etc.) and leveraging its influence within the OECD. V. Berlin Conference on the "Internet and Human Rights" (Berlin, 13-14 September 2012) This conference provided a space for multi‐stakeholder dialogue on the issue of Internet and Human Rights, bringing together about 100 participants from civil society, governments, private sector, academia and technology experts. Except for the plenaries and keynote speeches, all meetings were held under the Chatham House Rule to allow for open and frank exchange. Nicolas Seidler shared ISOC's experience in a session about "Human Rights and Internet Governance: Institutional Players and the Multi-Stakeholder Approach". VI. CITEL ISOC Sponsored Internet Standards Seminar ISOC coordinated an Internet Standards Seminar for CITEL to provide an opportunity for Latin American delegates to be introduced to the IETF, W3C and IEEE standards organizations. The seminar was a resounding success. There were two panels; the first was comprised of Internet Standards Development Organizations, who provided an overview of their organization and their standards development process, the second panel contained industry and vendors (Google, Ericsson, LACNIC, Globant, and ATIS) to explain the value of standards adoption to their organizations. Steve Mills (IEEE) introduced the Open Standards principals and the value this collaboration will provide to future Internet innovation. Governments in Latin America were very interested in having the panel’s SDOs contribute to their knowledge and development process. VII. CITEL PCC1 WCIT and WTSA Discussions The ETNO proposals were introduced by Telefonica Argentina but there was no discussion afterwards. ISOC also presented its IP Interconnection paper. It appears that CITEL will not be providing any support for the ETNO proposal at WCIT. There are other regional positions under discussion: mobile roaming charges were the main theme of discussions; conformance testing, to include IPv6 testing was not supported; the need for extensive cybersecurity text in the ITRs was not accepted; the TSAG Recommendation for Resolution 178 on the Internet Study Group will move forward as a regional position to support the creation of a Joint Coordination Activity rather than a new Study Group; the proposal to create a regional Study Group 2 on Numbering, Naming and Addressing appears to be heading towards WTSA for support.

2.3. RFC Editor Liaison (Heather Flanagan)
–Begin RFC Editor Liaison written report–
1. RSE Report Update on Active Projects * RFC Format draft-rfc-format-flanagan-00.txt has been posted and discussion is underway on the rfc-interest list. So far, the conversation has been reasonably focused, without the wide-ranging discussions that characterized the Format discussion earlier this year. We will be reviewing the requirements in Atlanta. A BoF for that discussion has been approved. * RFC Style Guide The first draft of the Style Guide received some extensive comments from the RSAG which are being incorporated before publication as an I- D. This is still on target to be released by October 12, 2012. Other items of note: * New Stream(s) The RSOC has indicated that the exploration and consideration of new streams from beyond the I* communities to be a low priority at this time. * 'Status of This Memo' modifications The IAB recently modified the 'Status of This Memo' options (as defined in RFC 5741) for RFCs in the IAB stream. The IESG is considering a modification to IETF stream RFCs. It may be time to consider a review of RFC 5741. * Trustees and the TLP Two items have gone before the Trustees regarding copyright text in and around code within an RFC and derivative work boilerplate options as they apply (or not) to the IRTF. These discussions are still in progress. * TLP as it applies to Alternate Streams The IRTF is confused that the IRTF Stream seems to be prohibited from using the pre-5378 copyright variants that the IETF Stream permits -- specifically, 6.c.iii from the TLP. We will suggest that this be addressed in the Copyright FAQ (available from http://trustee.ietf.org/faqs.html). These discussions are still in progress. 2. RFC Production Center SLA and Stats * Percentage of total documents published with an RFC Editor time of 30 business days or less: Aug: 62% (5% below compliance) Sep: 80% (100% compliance) Average RFCed time for docs in queue (as of 1 October): 3.7 weeks Publication rate for September is unusually low. We attribute this to the large number of clusters being processed. As of 10/4 22 docs in RFC-EDITOR 6 of these docs comprise 2 clusters moving through the queue together 18 docs in AUTH48 only 3 are not associated with a cluster 7 docs in AUTH48-DONE only 2 are not associated with a cluster (both moved to AUTH48-DONE 10/3)

The board agreed to invite Heather Flanagan as RSE to attend future IAB teleconferences as the RFC Editor Liaison. Joel will follow up with Heather.
2.4. IRTF Chair (Lars Eggert)
–Begin IRTF Chair written report–
- The (pending) publication of the ILNP document set on the IRTF Stream is running into some issues. Apparently (according to Jorge) the Trust TLP prohibits IRTF Stream documents from using the pre-5378 boilerplate variant, as well as the no-derivative-works variant. This seems to be in conflict with what RFC5743 is saying. - ANRP 2013 cycle has started. Nominations deadline is Nov 30. - RG chairs are having issues using the IETF datatracker extensions for chairs. Ticket has been filed in May. No activity since. - I'm asking the chairs for which RG wants to meet with the IAB in Atlanta. ICNRG was proposed by Alissa, but it's not clear if the chairs are there Thu AM. DTNRG could be a fallback?

2.5. IEEE-SA Liaison Manager (Dan Romascanu)
–Begin IEEE-SA Liaison Manager written report–
1. As decided in the face-to-face meeting in July two mail lists will be created to support the interaction of the leadership teams of the two SDOs. One was already created (for the team working on rfc4441bis), the second one including the two leadership teams should be launched any day (waiting for confirmation from the IESG secretariat) 2. The first coordination telechat between the two leadership teams took place on 9/5. The minutes are available at http://www.ietf.org/iesg/ieee/ together with the document that will be maintained at least until March 2013 documenting the fields of shared interest between the two organizations, status of each item, owners, action items. The next coordination call will be held on 10/29. 3. The team working on RFC4441bis started to work on weekly calls mode (each Wednesday). An rfc444bis-00 draft will be issued before the cutoff date (10/14). 4. The IEEE 802.1 WG hold an interim meeting the week of 9/10. Donald Eastlake and Tissa Senevirathne presented the status of the shared TRILL-IEEE 802.1 proposal http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2012/liaison-tissa-oam-ieee- trill-0912-v02.pptx which got a mixed reception from some of the participants. The issue is being discussed with the leadership and experts in the two organizations. 5. On 8/28 a Liaison Statement addressed to the IETF Chair (Security ADs and IPsecme chairs copied) was received from the IEEE 802.11 Working group https://datatracker.ietf.org/liaison/1181/ requesting that the IETF make a request to IANA to update the IKEv1 registry named "Group Description" and assign code points for the "Brainpool curves". Action on this matter is required before 12/15. 6. On 9/24 the IPPM WG received a Liaison Statement https://datatracker.ietf.org/liaison/1195/ from the IEEE 802.16 WG informing them on the new IEEE Project P802.16.3 on Mobile Broadband Network Performance Measurements 7. On 9/25 the BFD WG sent a liaison statement to the IEEE 802.1 WG https://datatracker.ietf.org/liaison/1192/ in response to liaison statement to the IETF regarding Proposed IETF BFD WG work on Ethernet LAG, informing the IEEE on decisions made following the liaison letter and the status of the IETF work and documents.

6. IAB-Stream Errata
The board confirmed the following responses to errata reported on IAB- stream documents:
- RFC 6055 (http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata_search.php?eid=3296): Hold for Document Update
- RFC 5741 (http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata_search.php?eid=3331): Hold for Document Update
- RFC 2825 (http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata_search.php?eid=3124): Hold for Document Update
Bernard will enter these responses into the RFC Editor Errata tool.
7. Status of this Memo Text
Bernard sent a message back to the RSE regarding the “Status of this Memo” boilerplate text for IAB-stream documents on 9 October 2012 and is awaiting a reply.
8. RFC 2870bis
Danny reported that an informal survey of all root name server operators indicates that all ‘letters’ will have the capability to provide service over IPv6 by the end of 2013. The broader issue will be discussed on a conference call organized by Ron Bonica later in the week. The IAB plans to discuss this further with the IESG at IETF 85.
9. Congestion Control Workshop Report
Hannes reported that he plans to submit the initial draft version of the Congestion Control Workshop Report by the 00 I-D deadline on 15 October 2012.
10. Retreat Dates
The board discussed potential retreat dates and locations for 2013 with the goal of being able to schedule the IAB, IESG and IAOC retreats back-to-back to minimize travel for those who have to attend more than one of the retreats. It was noted that 6 of the last 7 IAB retreats have been on the U.S. East Coast, and that it may be time to move to other venues.
It was suggested that holding the retreats in Dublin during the week prior to RIPE 66 (scheduled for 13-17 May 2013) would be beneficial for those who are already planning to attend that meeting. Joel will pass this suggestion along to the IESG.
11. Internet Governance Consultation & ISOC@IGF2012 Guide
Joel reported that ISOC sent out a questionnaire on Internet Governance. The board reviewed the questionnaire (sent earlier via email) and agreed that there was nothing needing a response from the IAB.
Alissa noted that the next Internet Governance Forum (IGF) meeting conflicts with IETF 85. David agreed to follow up with the IAOC about preventing future clashes between IETF and IGF.
Bernard reported that a face-to-face OpenStand meeting is being planned and suggested that this may be a topic for the joint meeting with the IESG on Friday afternoon at IETF 85.
