2. Monthly Reports
2.1. ISOC Liaison Report
–Begin ISOC Liaison Report, Mat Ford–
Internet Society Liaison Report to the IAB 9 Mar 2016 Topics: I. Ethical Data Handling II. NDSS III. Future Internet Scenarios Project IV. IETF Policymakers Programme V. GSMA’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016 VI. Materials Posted: ISOC SFO Chapter INET on the Internet of Things I. Ethical data handling ISOC arranged and moderated a panel on ethical data handling for this year’s Computers, Privacy and Data Protection conference in Brussels in January. The panel took place on International Data Protection Day. The panellists were: Michelle Dennedy (CPO, Cisco), Gemma Galdon Clavell (Eticas Consulting), Gloria Gonzalez Fuster (VUB) and Daniel Pradelles (HP Enterprise). The panel discussed the application of ethical principles to different phases of the product lifecycle (design, development, adoption, operations), and their input will form the basis of further ISOC work to develop practical guidance for organisations wishing to put ethical data-handling principles into practice. The next steps in this process are: - ISOC participation in a debate on data ethics, organised by the Digital Enlightenment Forum (March 1st, Brussels) - ISOC hosting of a practitioners’ round table workshop to draft a conceptual framework and a practical guidance document - Co-ordination with Danish think-tank DataEthics.eu to establish a clearing-house for materials on design principles and good practice. II. NDSS The Network and Distributed System Security (NDSS) Symposium was held 22-24 February 2016 in San Diego, CA. This year’s symposium featured a keynote by Dr. Matthew Green of Johns Hopkins University discussing recent developments “On Subverting Trust” along with peer reviewed academic research on numerous important security topics. The symposium was preceded by a day of workshops on relevant topics including Usable Security (USEC), Understanding and Enhancing Online Privacy (UEOP), and TLS 1.3 Ready or Not (TRON). In particular, the objective of the TRON workshop was to bring academic researchers and IETF protocol developers together to identify potential weaknesses in the TLS 1.3 specification prior to the finalization of that critical specification. All papers are available online, and the presentations are currently in the process of being posted. See <https://www.internetsociety.org/events/ndss- symposium-2016/ndss-2016-programme> for further details. III. Future Internet Scenarios Project ISOC is undertaking a global project to look at different plausible scenarios for the Future of the Internet in 5 - 7 years. For the purposes of the project, ISOC are using the term “Internet” in its broadest sense, encompassing everything from its structure, governance, and underlying technologies, to access, usage, and connected devices. The first phase of the project involves garnering input from experts on key trends and uncertainties that might impact that future. ISOC would very much like input from IAB members and will be following up with options for contributing to this phase of the work. IV. IETF Policymakers Programme The IETF 95 meeting in Buenos Aires marks a participation milestone for the IETF Policymakers Programme with 24 senior government officials expected from mostly Latin America and the Caribbean. Over the course of four days, the policy guests will participate in sessions on the core technical aspects of the Internet, interact and exchange information with IETF experts and gain exposure to the consensus process of the IETF. Since the programme’s inception in 2012, the main objective has been to build and strengthen support among policymakers worldwide for IETF Open Standards and to provide the IETF community with a better understanding of the priorities and concerns in developing countries. As the program continues to grow and more governments understand the value of the IETF and Open Standards, the Internet Society envisions greater participation by the technical community from developing countries in IETF meetings. V. GSMA’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016 Internet Society staff participated in the MWC, with President & CEO Kathy Brown speaking in the session “Women Leadership Accelerating the Digital Age” and Chief Economist Michael Kende participating in a panel providing commentary on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s keynote address. More information about ISOC's participation in MWC is available: <https://www.internetsociety.org/blog/public-policy/2016/02/converging- barcelona-mwc-2016> <https://www.internetsociety.org/blog/public-policy/2016/02/watch-live- today-mwc-2016-michael-kende-panel-beforeafter-mark-zuckerberg> VI. Materials Posted: ISOC SFO Chapter INET on the Internet of Things On 17 February, the Internet Society San Francisco Chapter hosted a one- day INET event on the Internet of Things, which used the recent ISOC IoT paper to frame the agenda. Presentations included a range of topics including security, interoperability, privacy, and policy, as well as a deployment overview from the building and construction sector. The video and presentations were recently posted and are available here: <http://www.sfbayisoc.org/iot-conference/>

2.3. IRTF Chair Report
–Begin IRTF Chair Report, Lars Eggert–
* The T2TRG is preparing a two-day interim meeting (Tue 2016-03-15 and Wed -16) co-located with the IAB IOTSI workshop, see https://github.com/t2trg/2016-03-san-jose/wiki * The IRTF and the Internet Society, in cooperation with ACM SIGCOMM, are planning a yearly academic "Applied Networking Research Workshop" (ANRW) co-located with an IETF meeting (usually, the summer one). The first one will very likely happen in Berlin on July 16, pending final negotiations with the ACM on open access publishing. More soon. * The IRSG and some external folks have been discussing blockchain technology and whether there is enough interest and relevance for an RG in this space. (That discussion seems to have fizzled out.) * I won't be in Buenos Aires. Aaron Falk has again volunteered to run the working dinner. * The HRPC RG has launched Net of Rights (https://hrpc.io/net-of-rights) and an introduction website (https://hrpc.io)
–End IRTF Chair Report, Lars Eggert–
Ted Hardie asked which research group will be reviewed at IETF 95. After discussion, the IAB agreed to review T2TRG, noting that since the group is so new, the discussion will be more about future plans than previous work.
2.4. ICANN Liaison Report
–Begin ICANN Liaison Report, Jonne Soininen–
I. Public Comments needing attention (only highlights) ======================================================= (All public comment processes: https://www.icann.org/public-comments#open-public) Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP) Operational Profile for gTLD Registries and Registrars (https://www.icann.org/public-comments/rdap- profile-2015-12-03-en) End: March 16th, 2016 Draft ICANN FY17 Operating Plan & Budget and Five-Year Operating Plan Update (https://www.icann.org/public-comments/op-budget-fy17-five- year-2016-03-04-en) End: April 30th, 2016 II. Upcoming topics that could be relevant =========================================== CCWG and transition ------------------- The ICANN meeting is ongoing in Marrakech, Morocco. The CCWG Work Stream 1, the proposal for the accountability, has been finalised and the final report has been given to the chartering organisations for approval. The chartering organisations are the At-Large Community (ALAC), Address Support Organization (ASO), the country code Name Support Organization (ccNSO), Governmental Advisory Council (GAC), Generic Names Support Organisation (GNSO), and Security and Stability Advisory Council (SSAC). By the time this report is written four out of the six have approved the proposal. The rest are hoped to follow suit today. The current situation can be seen at https://community.icann.org/pages/viewpage.action? pageId=58723827 The board is expected to approve this on Thursday in its public meeting. This marks a big step in the way to the transition. However, this is not end. The next steps involves the implementation including writing the ICANN by-laws to reflect the changes. In addition, the US Government must still accept the transition later this year. Namespace discussions --------------------- The Security and Stability Advisory Council (SSAC) has published SAC078 "SSAC Advisory on Uses of the Shared Global Domain Name Space" (https:// www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/sac-078-en.pdf). Basically, the document intents to increase the awareness of the discussions ongoing about namespaces to the ICANN board and community. They also inform that they have started a work party on looking at security and stability issues with different uses of the name space, such as .onion. There are also events at the ICANN discussing these issues. It would be good if the IETF and the IAB would keep up with this work ongoing in ICANN and consider the implications to these discussions in the IETF. III. (If relevant) upcoming meeting topics of importance ========================================================= ICANN board workshop May 14-16, 2016

2.5. IANA Liaison Report
–Begin IANA Liaison Report, Michelle Cotton–
SLA Deliverables Update: - ICANN met 100% of processing goal times for the February 2016 monthly statistic 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. Other News: - There is a pending nameserver change for the .ARPA top-level domain. The IAB will be requested to confirm this change request. - Staffing update: We have hired an IANA Specialist.
–End IANA Liaison Report, Michelle Cotton–
After discussion, Ted Hardie agreed to shepherd the pending .ARPA change request.
2.6. RFC Editor Liaison Report
–Begin RFC Editor Liaison Report, Heather Flanagan–
RSE Update * Format project The community comment period ends on Friday, 11 March, and has been less, as well as differently, contentious than expected. I will have a report completed over the weekend with the status of each comment for each draft, and will send that on to the IAB when all comments have been addressed one way or the other. A new SoW is in development for the CSS that will be a big visual part of the project. This CSS will impact the look and feel of both the HTML and PDF formats. The SoW is currently in review by the Tools Team and will hopefully go out for its own community comments in 2-3 weeks. The RSE is working with Greg Wood at the Internet Society on an RFC Format infographic to provide more information about the project and it's expected outcomes. The graphic, in poster form, will be displayed at the RFC Editor desk during IETF 95. Since we are not in a position to hold a useful and substantive BoF or tutorial, this seemed like a good way to keep the community informed while respecting the tight schedule that forms an IETF meeting. This infographic will also be found on the RFC Editor website; we do not intend to print handouts. * RFC Editor Automated Stats and Metrics John Levine of Standcore, LLC, has begun work on the Stats and Metrics code. This work is intended to follow a model similar to the work done for the Datatracker, including the use of Django. The timeframe for the projects is: Feb 15-28: get snapshot of existing code and work with staff to understand the existing process, and the new requirements March: develop beta version April: iterate with RSE and staff, perhaps in person discussions in Buenos Aires End of April: deliver finished project * IETF 95 planning The RFC Editor will have its usual desk, with the RSE and ISE offering office hours during the week. RPC Update * SLA report - http://www.rfc-editor.org/report-summary/ The RPC is not expected to meet the new SLA for Q1 2016. The group is in the final stages of catch-up from 2015, and is also in the process of handling an expedited document request that is impacting the queue (more below). * Expedited Document request A request to expedite the publication of the following drafts was received at the end of February. * draft-ietf-isis-te-metric-extensions-11 * draft-ietf-rtgwg-mrt-frr-architecture-10 * draft-ietf-rtgwg-mrt-frr-algorithm-09 * draft-ietf-isis-pcr-05 Because of the timing and nature of the request, whereas the IEEE needed the RFC numbers by the end of the month for the release of 802.1Qca on March 15, the RFC Editor made an exception to our process and assigned RFC numbers to these drafts before they entered AUTH48. There are over 200 pages total in these four drafts, and that is causing some delay to other documents in the queue.

3. IAB Agenda at IETF 95
The IAB discussed their agenda for IETF 95. Andrew Sullivan asked IAB members to add potential discussion topics to the wiki or send them to the IAB list.
Cindy Morgan noted that the IAB agenda for Monday morning has a joint IAB/IESG breakfast, but the IESG agenda lists an IESG-only meeting. She asked if there were topics to be discussed in a joint session.
Joe Hildebrand noted that he would like 5 minutes to talk about the RFC format changes, but that the discussion does not necessarily have to be on Monday; it could be on Sunday or Friday, as well.
Ted Hardie asked if draft-hardie-iaoc-iab-update should be discussed with the IESG and/or IAOC. Jari Arkko replied that the IESG and IAB should discuss it together.
The IAB agreed that if the Monday morning agenda was still empty by next week, the joint meeting would be canceled.
Cindy Morgan noted that the IAB’s Tuesday morning agenda is also currently empty; last week, the IAB agreed to wait until 23 March 2016, and if the agenda is still empty at that point, that meeting slot will be used for a Privacy and Security Program meeting instead.
4. BOF and PRG Coverage at IETF 95
Cindy Morgan asked IAB members to sign up for BOF and proposed RG coverage in the wiki. She noted that Brian Haberman has also requested an IAB shepherd for the LPWAN BOF. Erik Nordmark replied that he might be able to do this, and that he has sent email to Brian asking for more information.
5. IAB Meeting Time
The IAB discussed changing the time of IAB teleconferences starting after IETF 95. The IAB agreed that no one should have to be on the phone between 0100 and 0300 in their time zone. Cindy Morgan will send out a Doodle poll with meeting time options.
6. Emergency Services High-Level Document
Mary Barnes reported that the Emergency Services Program met, but they still do not have a volunteer to take on the high-level emergency services document. The Program took an action to ask interested people to go to the ECRIT meeting at IETF 95.
The Program agreed that shutting down makes sense. Emergency Services work will be followed in other venues.
7. Executive Session: RSOC Appointment
The IAB appointment to the RSOC was discussed in an executive session.
8. Executive Session: ISOC Board of Trustees Appointment
The IETF appointment to the ISOC Board of Trustees was discussed in an executive session. Russ Housley, who has recused himself from discussions on this topic, was not on the teleconference.
