Internet Society Liaison Report to the IAB 9 July 2014 Topics: I. Cryptech project at IETF 90 II. Draft Routing Resilience Manifesto available for comment III. Operators @ IETF IV. ICANN 50 DNSSEC Workshop V. IANA developments VI. OECD update VII. W3C Privacy Interest Group (PING) VIII. WSIS+10 High Level Review Event IX. Internet Governance Forum (IGF) X. Internet Society Spam Project I. Cryptech project at IETF 90 Lucy Lynch recently wrote about the Cryptech initiative on ISOC's tech matters blog (http://www.internetsociety.org/blog/tech-matters/2014/07/ black-box-paradox-–-how-trust-secret-todays-internet). The Cryptech team has been evangelising the project and will be on hand at IETF 90 for a project update. The briefing will be held on Wednesday, 23 July, during the lunch hour in the Quebec room of the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto. II. Draft Routing Resilience Manifesto available for comment The draft of the Routing Resilience Manifesto is open for a wider community review. It is available on the website http://www.routingmanifesto.org/. People are invited to provide feedback and suggestions and textual improvements to the document online or via e-mail to routingmanifesto AT isoc.org. An announcement was sent to various NOG mailing lists and has already received some feedback. Feedback from the IAB would be greatly appreciated. After reviewing and incorporating comments by the end of August, the final Manifesto will be released and the work of soliciting endorsements from network operators will begin. III. Operators and the IETF The 'Operators and the IETF' survey closed on 30 June with 368 responses, and we are now beginning to synthesise the feedback and plan to submit our results in time for the IETF 91 meeting. IV. ICANN 50 DNSSEC Workshop The Internet Society Deploy360 Programme worked with ICANN's SSAC and the DNSSEC Deployment Initiative to produce a very successful DNSSEC Workshop at ICANN 50 in London. Around 120 people participated in London with another 25 or so joining in remotely. Topics included case studies of DNSSEC deployment around Europe, key rollover/transfer challenges, a deep discussion of Hardware Security Modules (HSMs), a presentation by CloudFlare around the DNSSEC deployment challenges within a CDN (and a commitment to deploy DNSSEC by the end of 2014) and a series of DNSSEC/ DANE demonstrations including running code. The sessions were recorded and more information, links to the slides and more can be found online (http://wp.me/p4eijv-56p). Planning is now underway for the next DNSSEC Workshop at ICANN 51 in Los Angeles in October and the call for participation will be published publicly soon. V. IANA developments The Internet Society Board appointed Narelle Clark, Director of Operations-Deputy CEO for the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN) and Dr. Demi Getschko, CEO of the Brazilian Network Information Center (NIC.br), as its representatives on the NTIA/IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group . The Internet Society also recently published an information document describing the IANA functions .  http://www.internetsociety.org/news/narelle-clark-and-demi-getschko- selected-internet-society-representatives-ntiaiana-stewardship  http://www.internetsociety.org/doc/iana-functions-0 VI. OECD update The Internet Society led the participation of the Internet technical advisory committee (ITAC) at the recent OECD meeting week of the Committee on Digital Economy Policy and its working parties. As a result of ISOC's and ITAC's efforts, the economic and social value of the Open Internet should be a central theme of the 2016 OECD Ministerial. Work is ongoing on IPv6 and on the review of the OECD Security guidelines. ITAC also published a new edition of its newsletter, aimed at showing positive examples of cooperation between policymakers and the technical community in the OECD context: https://storify.com/ITAC/itac-newsletter-n-3-june-2014/ VII. W3C Privacy Interest Group (PING) PING held its monthly call on 26 June 2014. An informal task force has also been assembled to drive the work on privacy considerations for Web standards. The TF will be meeting alongside IETF 90. PING also plans to hold a more general informal face-to-face meeting at IETF. (Details to be advised.) Anyone from the IETF community is welcome to participate. The next call will be on 31 July 2014 at UTC 16. 29 May 2014 summary: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-privacy/ 2014AprJun/0022.html 26 June 2014 summary: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public- privacy/2014JulSep/0000.html VIII. WSIS+10 High Level Review Event The Internet Society was actively engaged in the successful adoption of outcome documents that review the implementation of WSIS over the past 10 years, and offer a vision for WSIS beyond 2015 . These outcome documents resulted from several months of multistakeholder negotiations. This document not only recognises the value of multistakeholder cooperation in achieving the goals of the WSIS, but also includes important wording on the value of open standards, IPv6 deployment and IXPs. As the WSIS+10 Review process unfolds and is shaped at the U.N. in New York, the Internet Society will emphasize its view that the process should be open and inclusive of all stakeholders, reflecting the spirit in Geneva.  http://www.itu.int/wsis/implementation/2014/forum/inc/doc/outcome/ 362828V2E.pdf IX. Internet Governance Forum (IGF) The IGF has launched the preparatory process for its Best Practices Forums (BPFs). This year, the BPFs will focus on 5 critical issues: spam, CERTs, local content, online child protection and meaningful multistakeholder mechanisms. One of the intended outcomes is a summary booklet or handout on each BPF, to be published after IGF 2014. For more information: http://www.intgovforum.org/cms/open-call-to-join- igf-best-practices-forums-preparatory-process X. Internet Society Spam Project The Internet Society Spam Project (http://internetsociety.org/what-we- do/policy/combating-spam-project) conducted a very successful workshop in Djibouti (2 June 2014), and will be following this up with webinars on 25 August and 8 September 2014. The Internet Society invites the IAB to propose a speaker from the IETF community for each of these webinars. For the August webinar, we are looking for a speaker to present on the latest work in the field in Latin America. For the September webinar, we are looking for a speaker to present on current work on DKIM, as there is significant interest in this topic in Africa. Additionally, we would like to invite the IAB to identify relevant RFCs and other informational documents to include on the website for the spam toolkit for unsolicited email.

2.5. RFC Editor Liaison Report
–Begin RFC Editor Liaison Report, Heather Flanagan–
1. RSE Report * RFC Format There are currently seven drafts by the Design Team, describing the requirements and vocabulary needed to make the changes to the RFC format. The Design Team will be meeting in Toronto to discuss the expected workflow in the new format world with an eye towards documenting any missing requirements. A small group will also be getting together to discuss possible modifications to the errata system as a result of the upcoming changes to the format. The RFC Format session on Tuesday will discuss the drafts and the timeline with the community. The Format FAQ, which includes links to the high-level requirements (RFC 6949), links to all the drafts, and the link to the announcement re: XML as the canonical format, has been posted on the RFC Editor website. Beyond the Design Team, the Tools Development Team is working on several SoWs related to format tools. These tools include: an xml2rfc v2 to v3 converter (which may merge with one of the other SoWs as purely a feature enhancement request for xml2rfc v2); rfclint (a consolidated CLI tool to handle the various automated checks done by the RFC Editor); TextSubmissionConverter (a text-to-XML converter); and, PublicationFormater (the creator of the various publication formats). When the SoWs are ready, they will go out as a "family" of SoWs for community comment. * non-ASCII characters in RFCs Thanks to assistance from Henrik Levkowetz and Matt Larson, "The Use of Non-ASCII Characters in RFCs", draft-flanagan-nonascii <http://www.ietf.org/id/draft-flanagan-nonascii-03.txt> is now available as a UTF-8 encoded document, allowing all non-ASCII characters to be rendered as intended in modern browsers and text readers. Individuals who wish to test their tools against drafts with non-ASCII characters can work from this draft as an example. * IETF 90 The RSE and RFC Editor have several meetings and office hours planned for IETF 90, including: * Saturday, 19 July 2014 - RSOC half-day retreat * Monday, 21 July 2014 - RSE office hours, Errata system (side meeting), Tech plenary (5 minutes) * Tuesday, 22 July 2014 - RSAG/ISEB lunch, RFC Format session * Wednesday, 23 July 2014 - RSE office hours, WG Chairs lunch (to discuss EFL author support), RFC Design Team meeting * Thursday, 24 July 2014 - RFC Editor / Stream Manager lunch Office hours for both the RSE and ISE will be posted on the RFC Editor website. 2. RPC Report * SLA - see http://www.rfc-editor.org/reports/ The RPC is still working through the unusually large surge of documents and document clusters from the first half of the year. The SLA time has not been met, but queue sizes (shown in the last graph on the reports page) are returning to normal. The RPC continues to train the newest editor, and looks to bring on an additional part-time editor with the ability to flex their hours to help combat future surges in document submissions.

3. IETF 90 Technical Plenary
Andrew Sullivan noted that Ted Hardie sent suggested edits to the description for the IETF 90 Technical Plenary on Topology and Geography, and agreed to incorporate those changes. Andrew reported that he is still waiting to confirm the names of the speakers from ISOC and the IXmaps Project. Russ Housley noted that the printed agendas for IETF 90 are being sent to the printer on Friday; Andrew agreed to try to confirm the speaker names before the agenda goes to print.
4. IAB Agenda at IETF 90
Cindy Morgan reviewed the current IAB agenda for IETF 90. She will also send a formal call for agenda items to the IAB list.
5. BOF Coverage at IETF 90
Erik Nordmark agreed to act as the formal IAB BOF shepherd for the Abstraction and Control of Transport Networks (ACTN) BOF. The rest of the BOFs at IETF 90 will be covered as follows:
- Delay Tolerant Networking Working Group (DTNWG): Marc Blanchet is chairing the BOF; Andrew Sullivan will cover the BOF.

Ted Hardie asked if IAB members could still send in BOF reports if they are not officially signed up to cover that BOF. Dave Thaler replied that IAB members are welcome and encouraged to send reports on any BOFs they attend; the sign-up list is just to ensure that there is at least one IAB member covering each BOF.
6. ISE Position
Joel Halpern agreed to draft a note soliciting feedback from the community on the ISE.
The IAB agreed to begin IAB Last Call on draft-iab-smart-object-architecture. Russ Housley will send the Last Call message to the IAB.
