2. Monthly Reports
2.1. ISOC Liaison Report
–Begin ISOC Liaison Report, Mat Ford–
Internet Society Liaison Report to the IAB 10 January 2017 Topics: I. New Report - State of DNSSEC Deployment 2016 II. Internet Governance Forum, Guadalajara, Mexico III. ISOC’s written contribution to the CSTD Working Group on Enhanced Cooperation IV. ISOC’s annual report to the CSTD on the WSIS implementation V. IXP development VI. Network and Distributed System Security (NDSS) Symposium I. New Report - State of DNSSEC Deployment 2016 To bring together many different sources of information into a single document, the Internet Society published the "State of DNSSEC Deployment 2016"  showing the ongoing growth of DNSSEC usage in both signing of domains and validation of signatures. The report gathers data and charts from a variety of industry sources and also includes case studies and discussions of deployment challenges. The intent is for this to be an annual report that can show the status of DNSSEC deployment year-over- year. Comments and feedback are welcome.  <https://www.internetsociety.org/doc/state-dnssec-deployment-2016> II. Internet Governance Forum, Guadalajara, Mexico The 2016 IGF featured ISOC staff and Board members as speakers in more than 40 different sessions, spanning issues such as collaborative security, community networking, blockchain, and Internet access shutdowns. ISOC organized a well-attended forum on trends for the future of the Internet that included a highly interactive discussion. Kathy Brown’s speech in the opening ceremony urged stakeholders to find a coherent voice to address issues threatening the future of the Internet . ISOC also sponsored more than 100 young individuals as IGF ambassadors and as participants of IGF Youth to participate in the event. The IGF further demonstrated its capacity to produce non-binding best practices around a range of key issues, including policies for connecting the ‘Next Billion’. ISOC helped to convene a community networking forum to discuss community, technical, and sustainability issues and to facilitate many experts and practitioners from around the world to attend and meet in person for the first time in several years, including many that participate in the IRTF GAIA research group. Countries, projects, teams and ISOC partners included: Argentina (Altermundi), Bolivia, Colombia (Colnodo), Georgia, Honduras, India (DEF/W4C), Kyrgyzstan, Peru, Mexico (Rhizomatica), Nepal (Nepal Wireless Project), Spain (Guifi), APC, LACNIC, NSRC, and the Zenzeleni project. Many of these experts are exploring development of open source routers (Libremesh), participating in the IETF BMX discussions, and are seeking spectrum allocations from their governments as they develop networks where traditional telecommunications companies do not operate. For a good overview of the week and the various sessions, including a final report, we also recommend the Geneva Internet Platform's Digital Watch - a project in partnership with ISOC that provided daily updates and reports from the IGF .  <https://www.internetsociety.org/news/igf2016-internet-society- urges-all-internet-stakeholders-find-coherent-voice-key-issues>  <http://digitalwatch.giplatform.org/events/11th-internet-governance- forum> III. ISOC’s written contribution to the CSTD Working Group on Enhanced Cooperation Following the Working Group’s first meeting in September, the group issued a call for input from all Internet stakeholders to share their thoughts on two questions to guide the group’s future work. The group's second meeting (26-27 January) will review the input received from all stakeholders. ISOC’s contribution  emphasizes the multistakeholder approach as the high-level characteristic of enhanced cooperation, and recommends continued focus in four areas: "Collaboration and collective responsibility to strengthen security”; "Increased collaboration to expand access”; “Strengthen participation of underrepresented stakeholders”; "Continued implementation of the improvements to the Internet Governance Forum”.  <http://unctad.org/meetings/en/Contribution/WGEC2016_m2_c11_en.pdf> IV. ISOC’s annual report to the CSTD on the WSIS implementation ISOC submitted a report to the UN Commission for Science and Technology for Development (CSTD) annual reporting on the implementation of the WSIS outcomes. The report  emphasized ISOC’s leadership in both the Trust and Access areas, with concrete illustrations of our work and its impact.  <http://www.internetsociety.org/doc/flow-information-follow-world- summit-information-society-wsis-0> V. IXP development ISOC convened two IXP Workshops (Skopje, Macedonia with RIPE NCC and INEX, and Dushanbe, Tajikistan with GEANT) with local partners to discuss IXP best practices, community development, and the importance of developing a stronger interconnection environment. ISOC, RIPE NCC and AfriNIC are working together to deploy RIPE NCC Atlas anchors in African IXP locations to facilitate additional data gathering. Servers and equipment have been provided in Kenya and Tanzania. VI. Network and Distributed System Security (NDSS) Symposium The program for the Network and Distributed System Security (NDSS) Symposium 26 Feb - 1 March in San Diego, CA is moving forward. The Program Committee has released the list of accepted papers that will constitute the core of the program . There were 68 peer reviewed academic papers accepted for the symposium. Additionally, there are two co-located workshops being planned. The first, Useable Security  is a continuation of a series of successful workshops held on the topic in conjunction with NDSS. Additionally, there is a new workshop on DNS Privacy  that is being driven members of the IETF community interested in DNS privacy.  <https://www.internetsociety.org/events/ndss-symposium/ndss- symposium-2017/ndss-2017-programme>  <https://www.internetsociety.org/events/ndss-symposium/ndss- symposium-2017/usable-security-usec-2017-call-papers>  <https://www.internetsociety.org/events/ndss-symposium/ndss- symposium-2017/dns-privacy-workshop-2017-call-papers>

I. Public Comments needing attention (only highlights) ======================================================= (All public comment processes: https://www.icann.org/public- comments#open-public) Continuous Data-Driven Analysis of Root Server System Stability Draft Report (https://www.icann.org/public-comments/cdar-draft-2016-10-27-en) Closing date: Jan 15th, 2017 II. Upcoming topics that could be relevant =========================================== Security and Stability Advisory Committee Advisory on the stability of the domain namespace --------------------------- The SSAC has published an advice on the stability of the domain namespace (https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/sac-090-en.pdf). This is the SSAC view on the namespace and the advice is advice to the ICANN board. In the document, there are four specific recommendations, where some of the recommendations may have relationship to the IETF and the special names registry. Specifically, the advice calls for coordination with the IETF. The ICANN board has not discussed this document per se. However, the discussion on topic related to is expected to come up on the board's agenda, soon. ICANN#57 meeting in Hyderabad, November 3-9, 2016 ---------------------------- ICANN had its Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Hyderabad in November.

2.4. IANA Liaison Report
–Begin IANA Liaison Report, Michelle Cotton–
IANA Services Liaison Report – 11 January 2017 SLA Deliverables Update: - ICANN met 98% of processing goal times for the December 2016 monthly statistics report, exceeding the SLA goal to meet 90% of processing goal times. These times include the steps that ICANN has control over and not time it is waiting on requesters, document authors or other experts. Other News: - The report based on the 2016 Customer Satisfaction Survey for the IANA Services has been completed. Publication was delayed during the holiday break and the report will be posted in mid-January. Meeting Notes Reporting: MEETING MINUTES - BEGIN Summary of PTI and IAB/IETF Meeting Monday, November 14, 2016 Lunch Meeting at IETF-97, Seoul 1030 UTC Attendees: Jari Arkko, IETF chair Michelle Cotton, PTI Protocol Parameters Engagement Manager Elise Gerich, PTI President Amanda Baber, PTI Lead IANA Services Specialist Tobias Gondrom, IETF Trust Chair Russ Housley, IAB Lead for IANA Evolution Program Ray Pelletier, IAD Andrew Sullivan, IAB chair Jonne Soininen, IAB liaison to ICANN Board 1. Introductions A. Baber will be recording the minutes for this meeting. 2. General Updates – How are we doing? From July 2016 through October 2016, more than 1281 IETF-related requests processed. 99.75 percent of requests completed within IANA processing goal times. Port expert response times are trending downward, possibly because of the designation of two additional experts. We will continue to monitor this trend. 3. July 2016 through October 2016 Stats reports Two CORE tickets were open for a long time, largely because of an unresponsive expert. A replacement for the expert will be on board shortly. One ticket closed on Nov 1 and the other should close soon. 4. Update on Previous Action Items Closed M. Cotton had an action item to ask the AD for secondary experts for CORE. Secondary experts have been identified. M. Cotton was to provide additional information for media type requests. Additional information is now being provided in the email that accompanies the monthly report. This practice will continue. Open Area Director has the action to identify a new primary expert for CORE. 5. Update on Deliverables and Projects The protocol parameter audit is in its third year. Some clarification language has been added to the controls. With the expiration of the contract with NTIA for the IANA functions, this report will cover a period ending September 30th instead of November 30th. Normal delivery time for these results is by March 30th of every year, but this report should be available earlier. Whether the next report will cover 14 months or be shifted permanently from Oct 1 - Sep 30 has not been determined. A date change in the SLA may be required. The new SOC-2 will cover the numbers function as well. These controls for numbers were initially modeled after IETF controls. Action Item: M. Cotton to clarify dates for annual review. 6. Other Discussion Topics 5226bis and language changes M. Cotton is working with Barry Leiba on final edits to 5226bis. The document now requires language changes to comply with the IETF Trust’s IPR agreement. It was agreed that the document should have a new two- week last call. This will be confirmed with the authors and responsible AD. This group won't review the document beforehand, but will review in parallel. Action Item: A. Sullivan will send a note to RFC Editor this week about the language changes. More discussion may be needed. Enforcement would have to be undertaken by the Trust. CCG (Community Coordination Group) Discussed role of CCG in PTI oversight. Their use of the term "quality control," as relates to PTI, refers to oversight of trademark use. R. Housley, as CCG co-chair, confirmed that he does not expect PTI to send reports to the CCG. Customer Service Survey Customer service satisfaction survey will be available in December. One conclusion was that people want to see versions of registries. This was requested through the IESG when contact information issues were under discussion. Possible improvements are being discussed. Some issues with the delivery of the survey were identified. Users with more than one role replied to only one survey; surveys were erroneously sent to group addresses, including working group addresses; not all queried feel motivated to answer. Only four responses from the IESG. Discussion about sending immediate post-ticket surveys as well as annual surveys has begun. 8. 2017 SLA – Any changes? Action Item: Precedent language will be removed now that the transition is complete. Annual review dates may change. IESG has confirmed that they want to keep the new expiring early allocation report, so that will be left in the SLA as a permanent deliverable. No changes likely this year. 9. Process for Inactive Requests A process for handling requests that can't be moved out of OFAC check was established in Berlin. The inactive ticket is moved to a separate queue and re-checked quarterly. Action Item: M. Cotton will send documentation of the process to the group. 10. Report format for statistics on OFAC Review of Protocol Parameter Requests The IAB will receive a report documenting inactive requests dating back seven years. This is not a public report. 11. Timezone database updates Kim Davies is working with the Time Zone Coordinator to change how the database gets updated, using Github. In the future, there will be automatic deployment and then a backup. The Coordinator will be asked to communicate enhancements to the Time Zone Mailing List before and after they're completed. We will continue to monitor the progress. 12. Expert Reviews Port review time has improved. Media type review process is continuing to be monitored. There is still a learning curve for the newer media types expert. The new expert is going to propose having calls every two weeks to go through the queue. We will monitor the progress of those efforts. We have some other slow experts. Action Item: Will ask IESG for replacements. There's progress on CORE replacements. There was some discussion about if we need to think about changing expectations for experts, not treating them like volunteers. Consensus was we should set expectations when experts are assigned, but they are still volunteers and those that are having issues should be monitored on a case by case basis. There was a suggestion to record how many times an expert must be pinged. Action Item: M. Cotton will consider what is involved in tracking this information as the pinging is not automated. 13. Phone Meeting Schedule Action Item: M. Cotton will send out invitations for future calls. 14. Other Business: M. Cotton asked about the formality of the IPROC. A. Sullivan said the group will revert to an informal group as it was years ago. IPROC page on the IETF website will likely be tomb stoned. On request of the IETF/ IAB representatives, M. Cotton will present informal notes to IAB in the liaison report. 15. Summary of New Action Items Action Item: Area Director to identify a new primary expert for CORE. Action Item: M. Cotton to clarify dates for annual review. Action Item: A. Sullivan will send a note to RFC Editor this week about the language changes. More discussion may be needed. Enforcement would have to be undertaken by the Trust. Action Item: Precedent language will be removed now that the transition is complete. Action Item: M. Cotton will send documentation of the process to the group. Action Item: M. Cotton will consider what is involved in tracking this information as the pinging is not automated. Action Item: M. Cotton will send out invitations for future calls.

2.5. RFC Editor Liaison Report
–Begin RFC Editor Liaison Report, Heather Flanagan–
RFC Series Editor Update Format The IAOC has awarded the format tools to Elf Tools (for work on IDNITS, Publication Formatter and Text Submission) and SeanTek (for work on RFClint, svgcheck, and XML Diff). A formal announcement will be sent to the community in January 2017. Digital Preservation The press release by the National Library of Sweden will be released this month, as will a blog post about the effort from the RFC Series Editor via the IETF blog. The I-D describing the general goals and expectations of digital preservation for RFCs, draft-iab-rfc-preservation, has been submitted to the IAB to start the approval process for publication as an RFC. RFC Production Center evaluation A questionnaire will be distributed this month to the IESG, IAB, IRSG, and ISE, as well as twelve randomly selected authors who had RFCs published in 2016 to collect feedback on the performance of the RPC in 2016. The RFC Series Editor will handle the distribution and information collection, and will draft a report to the RSOC after that information gathering and review is complete. RPC update - SLA See: https://www.rfc-editor.org/report-summary/ Q4 2016: Q4 has been quite busy, as the Format-related documents have been published, an expedited request for draft-ietf-netmod-routing-cfg has been completed, and a declaration in response to a legal request has been completed. Publications have been slow so far in Q4, but quite a few clustered documents were stuck in AUTH48 and AUTH48-DONE (see Figure 3). Also, note that while the number of publications was low during Q4, the number of pages published was the highest this year. For CY2016, 310 documents were published as RFCs. 58% of RFCs were published within the Tier 1 goal time of 6 weeks or less; 93% of RFCs were published within the Tier 2 goal time of 12 weeks or less.
–End RFC Editor Liaison Report, Heather Flanagan–
Cindy Morgan will send out an e-vote asking whether draft-iab-rfc-preservation is ready for community review.
4. Stability of the domain namespace
The IAB discussed the recent SSAC Advisory on the Stability of the Domain Namespace <https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/sac-090- en.pdf>. Suzanne Woolf noted that it is also being discussed on the Names and Identifiers Program list, but that it would be helpful to get more input from people who have knowledge in this space.
Jonne Soininen will let the ICANN Board know that the IAB has read the report and is trying to come up with their views on this.
5. Future Tech Plenaries
Brian Trammell reported that there was nothing new to report about the IETF 98 Technical Plenary. Brian and Lee Howard will send an update on the plenary plans to the IAB mailing list and report back to the IAB in more detail at the 1 February 2017 business meeting.
6. Program Review: RSOC
Robert Sparks updated the IAB on the RFC Series Oversight Committee (RSOC). Recent and ongoing activities include:
- Evaluation of RSE 2015/2016 performance
- Establish RSE 2016/2017 priorities
- Evaluation of digital signature procedures
- Review/publication of RFC Format document suite
- Review/Oversight of projects
- Digital preservation
- Statistics and Metrics
- Improvements to RFC Infrastructure
- Handle CrossRef DOI display rule changes
- Assist with development of ISE transition plan
Upcoming activities include:
- Participate in the 2017 RSE RFP and selection process
- Assist with transition to new RFC format
The IAB briefly discussed how much time is expected from the RSE role, and whether that is likely to go down once the bulk of the new format work is done. Robert Sparks will go back to RSOC and find out if the time expectations need to be more explicit.
The RSOC membership has not changed since the last time RSOC was reviewed (22 June 2016). The IAB agreed to review that again either at IETF 98 or at the next IAB retreat.
Robert Sparks reported that Crossref, the DOI registrar used by the RFC series, recently changed their display guidelines to require all DOIs to follow the format of https://doi.org/####. This would result in a single point for logging what IP addresses are accessing which documents, and that information potentially provides tracking about individual actions that governments might request via their local legal proceedings.
RSOC is unhappy with that change, and plans to continue to display DOIs unlinked and in the format “DOI ######.” If Crossref eventually demands that the RFC Series follow the new display guidelines, the RSOC proposes that the RFC Series stop using DOIs. This was discussed with the stream managers during IETF 97, and they supported that proposal.
7. Executive Session: Project internal mailing lists
The archives of internal project mailing lists were discussed in an executive session.
8. Executive Session: IEEE 802-IETF coordination activity
Russ Housley recused himself from the discussion and left the call. The coordination activity between the IETF and IEEE 802 was discussed in an executive session.
9. NomCom Slate
Cindy Morgan will send out a Doodle poll for the IAB to choose a time to discuss the IESG slate, once it is received from NomCom.
