4. IANA Evolution Program Review
Russ Housley updated the IAB on the current state of the IANA Evolution Program.
The IANA Stewardship Transition happened on 1 October 2016.
The main focus of the IANA Evolution Program is still on the oversight of the IANA functions. The Program also acts as a think-tank and advises the IAB on strategic and liaison issues. The Program may also be called upon for general insight and guidance on matters relating to ICANN and the new PTI.
The Program had several work items specific to the IANA Stewardship Transition; with the transition complete, those work items are now done. Other recent Program activities include a document on the process for the IAB to fill seats on the Community Coordination Group (CCG), which is in the RFC Editor Queue), as well as the signing of the new supplemental agreement with ICANN on the IANA functions.
Russ Housley suggested that with the IANA Stewardship Transition complete, it is time to make the membership of the Program smaller. The IAB agreed; Russ will send an email to the Program list asking who wants to remain involved. Russ also noted that the Program will need a new IAB Lead in March 2017 when he steps down from the IAB.
The Program web page should also be updated to point to the CCG appointment process document once the RFC is published, and the scope of work should be updated to follow CCWG Workstream 2.
5. IEEE-IETF coordination activity
Via e-vote, the IAB approved Russ Housley as the new IETF liaison manager to IEEE-SA. Russ Housley reported that the transition is already underway, and that the next coordination meeting with the IEEE 802 is on Monday, 30 January 2017.
6. NTIA IOT Paper
Dave Thaler reported that the US NTIA recently published a paper titled “The Benefits, Challenges, and Potential Roles for the Government in Fostering the Advancement of the Internet of Things” which incorporates feedback from the industry, including the IAB’s comments from last year. NTIA invited further comments on the published paper.
Dave Thaler, Russ Housley, and Jari Arkko agreed to review the paper and report back by 8 February 2017 on whether there is anything on which the IAB should submit comments.
