Internet Society Liaison Report to the IAB 10 Jun 2015 Topics: I. WSIS and IGF meetings II. Human Rights III. Global Internet Report IV. W3C Privacy Interest Group (PING) V. CITEL VI. World IPv6 Launch Turns 3 I. WSIS and IGF meetings - CSTD  (4-8 May): This was the last phase of the WSIS review process before the UN General Assembly process begins next week in New York. A report on "Implementing WSIS outcomes: A ten-year review" was discussed. A Resolution on WSIS was also negotiated, but with very little advancement in comparison to last year's resolution: the mandate of the IGF is not yet renewed, and there is little guidance on the events to be held in New York in December. Raul Echeberria, VP Global Engagement (Internet Society), was invited to deliver a high-level statement. - IGF MAG and Open Consultations  (20-22 May): The Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG) continued preparations for the 2015 Internet Governance Forum, which will be held in Brazil from 10 to 13 November 2015. Considerable efforts were spent on intersessional work, and with ongoing progress with Best Practices Forums  (a format that focuses on sharing lessons learned from dealing with tangible issues such as spam). A new track on developing "Policy menus for Connecting the Next Billion" was also launched. - ITU WSIS Forum (25-29 May): WSIS Forums provide an annual avenue to take stock of progress on WSIS Action Lines. The theme of this year's forum was "Innovating Together: Enabling ICTs for Sustainable Development". The Internet Society organized a set of sessions (collaborative security, local content) and we also had high-level representatives delivering policy statements, including Olaf Kolkman. We also organized with ICC, CS and GIP a cross-community session on Internet governance that gathered around 90 people.  http://unctad.org/en/Pages/MeetingDetails.aspx?meetingid=606  http://www.intgovforum.org/cms/  http://www.intgovforum.org/cms/best-practice-forums  http://www.itu.int/net4/wsis/forum/2015/ II. Human Rights David Kaye, U.N. Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, released his first report , which will be submitted to the Human Rights Council in June. The Internet Society was one of a number of non-governmental organisations that provided a submission for the consultation on this report , which focuses on issues related to encryption and anonymity. The Special Rapporteur concluded, among other things: “States should avoid all measures that weaken the security that individuals may enjoy online, such as backdoors, weak encryption standards and key escrows”. He also encourages states and non-governmental stakeholders “to engage in a campaign to bring encryption by design and default to users around the world”. The Internet Society will take the opportunity of the next session of the Human Rights Council (15 June to 3 July in Geneva) to host a dinner with UN Special Rapporteur David Kaye and civil society leaders, around the release of his report on encryption and anonymity. The Internet Society will also host a session with the US Mission 2015 Internet Freedom fellows, who will share their experience on women and ICTs in countries such as Belarus, Brunei, Zambia, Kenya and Palestine.

Global Internet Report The Internet Society’s second annual Global Internet Report will be released in early July. The topic is the mobile Internet, which we chose because of its role in promoting development, with the next billion likely to come online with mobile broadband, and the evolution of the Internet as app usage becomes the dominant way for users to go online. The report provides a significant amount of data and analysis, highlights new services that show the benefit of the mobile Internet, and examines key challenges raised by the mobile Internet along with making recommendations. IV. W3C Privacy Interest Group (PING) PING held its monthly teleconference on 14 May 2015. Representatives from the Web Applications Security WG and Web Payments Interest Group joined the call to discuss privacy considerations for Subresource Integrity (SRI)  and Web payments use cases . SRI defines a mechanism by which user agents may verify that a fetched resource has been delivered without unexpected manipulation. The meeting summary is available here: https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-privacy/2015AprJun/0049.html  http://w3c.github.io/webappsec/specs/subresourceintegrity/  http://www.w3.org/TR/web-payments-use-cases/ V. CITEL The XXVI Meeting of the Permanent Consultative Committee I (PCC.I): Telecommunication/ICT from CITEL (Inter-American Telecommunication Commission) took place on 26-29 May, in Cusco, Peru. Attendance is mainly from Member States’ telecom regulators within the Americas region. ISOC is an Associate Member. ISOC submitted 6 informative documents about: IETF participation and upcoming Buenos Aires meeting; IXP case studies in LAC region; capacity building opportunities on Internet Governance and Digital Footprint; and Collaborative Security. ISOC’s leading role in capacity building on Internet Governance was recognised in 2 final decision documents from the Member States. Outcome documents have also tackled other topics such as: joint efforts to collect best practices on IXP implementation and the creation of a technical notebook for IPv6 Best Practices. In preparation for the ITU World Telecommunication Standardization Assembly WTSA 2016, the group has also raised discussions on standards for Internet of Things (IoT). The next PCC.I meeting will be on 29 September-3 October, Washington DC, USA. VI. World IPv6 Launch Turns 3 June 6 marked the third anniversary of World IPv6 Launch and the growth of IPv6 continues at a strong pace. Ongoing World IPv6 Launch measurements  show a number of large networks with substantial deployments of IPv6. Google's IPv6 statistics  recently crossed over 7% for the first time. The Internet Society Deploy360 Programme published a post  noting the anniversary and continuing our ongoing efforts to promote the deployment of IPv6.  http://www.worldipv6launch.org/measurements/  https://www.google.com/intl/en/ipv6/statistics.html  http://www.internetsociety.org/deploy360/blog/2015/06/celebrating- the-3rd-launchiversary-of-world-ipv6-launch/

Ted Hardie asked if the PING work had been shared with any IETF working groups, noting that HTTPBIS had worked on similar proposals in the past. Mat Ford replied that he was not sure, but that he would contact Christine Runnegar, who is leading the work on the ISOC side, about possibly making a presentation to the HTTPBIS working group during IETF 93.
Russ Housley asked if the reference to “the upcoming Buenos Aires meeting” in the CITEL section of the report referred to ICANN 53 (June 2015) or IETF 95 (March 2016). Mat Ford replied that he thought it referred to the IETF meeting, but that he will check this and report back.
2.2. IESG Liaison Report

2.3. IRTF Chair Report
–Begin IRTF Chair Report, Lars Eggert–
- NFVRG interim at IEEE ICC - Some IRTF stream errata processed - Some liaisons from ITU-T received; since [IRTF is] not an SDO and set up to handle these, approach is to forward to Scott Mansfield and let him follow up
–End IRTF Chair Report, Lars Eggert–
The IAB discussed which Research Group to review at IETF 93. GAIA will meet at IETF 93, and has not been reviewed before. However, there was a request from the ICNRG chairs to discuss potential interactions with the ITU-T FG IMT-2020. After discussion, the IAB agreed to try to schedule a formal review of GAIA, with ICNRG as a backup. Regardless, the IAB will meet with the ICNRG chairs on Friday morning to discuss possible interactions with ITU-T FG IMT-2020.
2.4. ICANN Liaison Report

I. Public Comments needing attention (only highlights) ======================================================= (All public comment processes: https://www.icann.org/public-comments#open-public) Cross Community Working Group on Enhancing ICANN Accountability (CCWG- Accountability) - Input Needed on its Proposed Accountability Enhancements (Work Stream 1) (https://www.icann.org/public-comments/ccwg-accountability-draft- proposal-2015-05-04-en) 12 June 2015 (extended from June 3rd due to late translation) II. Upcoming topics that could be relevant =========================================== ICANN CEO Fadi Chehadé announces the end of his tenure ------------------------------------------------------ (https://www.icann.org/news/announcement-2015-05-21-en) Mr. Chehadé has decided to conclude his tenure by March 2016. He is planning to move to the private sector outside the domain name industry. Continuation of the stewardship transition discussion ----------------------------------------------------- The Cross Community Working Group on IANA stewardship transition, the 2nd draft report comment period has ended. There quite some comments (http://forum.icann.org/lists/comments-cwg-stewardship-draft- proposal-22apr15/). The official report of the comments has not been published, yet. In addition, the work on improving ICANN accountability is going ahead. The comment period has been now extended to June 12th. The ICANN meeting is starting on June 21st and this is most probably going to be one of the key topics of the meeting. III. (If relevant) upcoming meeting topics of importance ========================================================= The next ICANN meeting is June 21st-25th, 2015 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Clearly the IANA stewardship transition topic will be one of the key topics discussed during the meeting as, for instance, the names community is expected to finalise their proposal by that time.

IANA Liaison Report – 10 June 2015 2014 SLA Deliverables Update: - ICANN met 98% of processing goal times for the April 2015 monthly statistics, exceeding the SLA goal to meet 90% of processing goal times. These times include the steps that the IANA Department has control over and not time it is waiting on requesters, document authors or other experts. - We are in the process of defining the engagement with Price Waterhouse Cooper for the annual SOC2 and SOC3 audits. This audit includes the annual review of protocol parameter work as described in the deliverable in the SLA. Other News: - There is a new blog posting by Alain Durand about the volume of requests related to the IANA functions: https://www.icann.org/news/blog/iana-functions-usage-analysis - There is a new booklet describing the IANA functions that will be published on-line and a paper copy will be available at the Buenos Aires ICANN meeting.

2.6. RFC Editor Liaison Report
–Begin RFC Editor Liaison Report, Heather Flanagan–
RSE Update * Format The RFC Format Design Team is reaching closure on the last big items in the requirements - the handling of cross references within a document. There are two proposals currently under discussion, and the debate has been moved to rfc-interest for additional community feedback. When the cross-reference question is resolved, the output requirements' drafts will be updated and sufficient for the RFP to go out to bid. As a reminder, the documents produced by the design team will remain in draft form until there is running code, as we expect to iterate on the details as we learn more through the implementation process. * DOI DOIs have been assigned to all past and present RFCs, and the assignment process is now part of the publication of each RFC. The Style Guide (web portion) has been updated to reflect DOI use within the Series. This project is now considered complete, and will move into operational maintenance going forward. * W3C Digital Publishing Interest Group face-to-face The W3C DPUB group<http://www.w3.org/dpub/> met in New York on May 26 for their semi-annual face-to-face meeting. The RFC Series Editor acts as an Invited Expert to that group, offering another perspective on publisher requirements for the web and learning about the same from other ares of the publishing industry. Topics included discussing possible packaging requirements, fragment identifier requirements, accessibility for the web from a publisher's standpoint, and rechartering for the group going forward. * Society for Scholarly Publishing 2015 conference The SSP 2015 annual conference was held in Washington, DC, from May 27-29. This was an exploratory foray on the part of the RSE to see if this organization might have something to offer to the RFC Series in terms of best practices and contacts in the publishing industry. There were several useful sessions on the program, including: Zen and the Art of Metadata Maintenance, New Product Development, Choosing the Right Technology, Standards and IDs, and The Business of Publishing. Some of those sessions, particularly the New Product Development and The Business of Publishing, offered some useful insight into what a publisher—particularly one associated with a scholarly society—needs to go through before the publish a new title. RPC Update * Stats - http://www.rfc-editor.org/reports/ - - From the reports page: "We are seeing a significant impact on the RFC Editor processing times as several clusters make their way to publication. Cluster 241 (C241), the jose/oauth cluster of 9 documents, was published as well as RFCs from eight other clusters. Of the documents published this month, 58% were associated with a cluster. Processing time for cluster documents are usually longer as the editors work through consistency issues within the cluster."
–End RFC Editor Liaison Report, Heather Flanagan–
Andrew Sullivan asked if either the W3C Digital Publishing Interest Group meeting or the Society for Scholarly Publishing 2015 conference provided any insights about handling possible additional RFC streams. Heather Flanagan replied that the SSP conference included a session that discussed things publishers need to consider when adding new titles. One of the key points in that discussion is that community buy-in is necessary; Heather noted that there is not currently community buy-in for adding an additional RFC stream.
3. IAB Agenda at IETF 93
Cindy Morgan asked Program leads to put in their meeting requests as soon as possible, noting that the IAB will be sharing breakout space with the IESG at this meeting.
4. IAB Statement on the trade in security technologies
The IAB members who were on the call approved the text for the IAB statement on the trade in security technologies. Andrew Sullivan will follow up with the IAB members who were not on the call to make sure that there are not any objections before sending out the statement.
5. Possible RFC on the trade in security technologies
Ted Hardie observed that RFC 1984, “IAB and IESG Statement on Cryptographic Technology and the Internet,” was the result of a larger community discussion and wondered if the IAB statement on the trade in security technologies should be codified in an RFC in a similar manner, signed by both the IESG and the IAB. The IAB agreed that this was a good idea; Ted will contact Stephen Farrell about starting work on such a document in the Security Area so that it can go through the IETF consensus process.
6. MaRNEW Workshop Update
Joe Hildebrand briefed the IAB on the current status of the Managing Radio Networks in an Encrypted World (MaRNEW) Workshop. The website <https://www.iab.org/activities/workshops/marnew/> has gone live, and the call for papers is expected to go out soon.
The exact venue for the workshop has not been confirmed yet; there are a number of events in Atlanta that week, which is making it a challenge to find space. Brian Trammell agreed to reach out to contacts at Georgia Tech and find out if they might be able to accommodate the workshop.
Cindy Morgan will add Russ Housley, Andrew Sullivan, and Brian Trammell to the workshop mailing list.
7. Stack Evolution Program
Discussion of the updated text for the Stack Evolution Program webpage are ongoing on the mailing list.
8. Other Business
There was no other business and the meeting was adjourned.
