–Begin ISOC Liaison Report, Mat Ford–
Internet Society Liaison Report to the IAB 7 February 2017 Topics: I. Message from ISOC CEO on U.S. Travel Ban II. IGF 2016 outcomes published III. CSTD Intercessional Panel (23-25 January) IV. CSTD Working Group on Enhanced Cooperation (26-27 January) I. Message from ISOC CEO on U.S. Travel Ban ISOC President and CEO Kathy Brown sent the following message to members at the end of January: “Dear Colleagues, As a global organization with trustees, employees, chapters and members all over the world, we are deeply troubled by actions taken by the U.S. on Friday that placed immediate and unprecedented bans on entry to the United States of citizens and refugees of seven majority-Muslim countries. Not only will the purported bans place an unwarranted burden on people in our organization, it is an anathema to the Internet Society whose values rest firmly on a commitment to an open, globally connected community dedicated to the open, global Internet. We are encouraged by the countries who have rejected the U.S. action this weekend and by the human rights organizations that have stood in solidarity with countless refugees and travelers who were so abruptly halted in entering the U.S. We are watching developments; I will keep you updated as we know more. Kathy Brown President/CEO” II. IGF 2016 outcomes published Following a year-long process of intersessional activities, the complete list of IGF 2016 outputs is now available. These outputs are developed in an open bottom-up multistakeholder fashion, all experts are welcome to join. New themes of work for IGF 2017 will be discussed early March at the IGF MAG meeting. - BPF Gender: Outcome resource 2016  (access and gender) & recommendations roadmap  (online abuse and gender-based violence); - BPF on Internet exchange points (IXPs) ; - BPF on commercial and economic incentives to deploy IPv6 ; - BPF Cybersecurity  (‘Building Confidence and Security in the use of Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) through Enhanced Cooperation and Collaboration’); and - Policy Options for Connecting and Enabling the Next Billion(s) (Phase II) .  http://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/index.php? q=filedepot_download/3406/437  http://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/index.php? q=filedepot_download/3406/185  http://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/bpf-ixps  http://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/bpf-ipv6  http://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/bpf-cybersecurity  http://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/index.php? q=filedepot_download/3416/412 III. CSTD Inter-sessional Panel (23-25 January) ISOC participated in the Commission on Science and Trade for Development’s inter-sessional session, which is the main UN body related to the follow-up to the outcomes of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS). This year’s session had a dedicated focus on new innovative approaches on implementing the Sustainable Development Goals, and ISOC delivered a statement on the Internet’s role in supporting the 2030 Agenda's implementation. IV. CSTD Working Group on Enhanced Cooperation (26-27 January) The group’s second meeting focused on the input received from the consultation on two questions: What are the high-level characteristics of enhanced cooperation, and recommendations in light of the group’s previous work. The discussion centred on the former question, focusing on identifying the high-level principles for good Internet Governance (transparency, etc.). ISOC’s position is guided by our multistakeholder governance attributes, which formed the basis of our written contribution (available here: http://unctad.org/meetings/en/ Contribution/WGEC2016_m2_c11_en.pdf).

Ted Hardie noted that there is likely to be activity from ISOC chapter members as well as ISOC global regarding the current travel ban to the United States. After discussion, the IAB agreed that it would be helpful to be aware of this activity when planning any IAB-organized activities. Ted will reach out to Mat Ford and let him know that the IAB may ask for this information in the future.

2.3. 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) Reference Japanese Label Generation Rules (LGR) for the Second Level (https://www.icann.org/public-comments/japanese-lgr-second- level-2017-01-27-en) Closing date: Marc 8th, 2017 II. Topics that could be relevant ================================== February ICANN board retreat --------------------------- Namespace issues were briefly discussed. There is a feeling in the ICANN board and the ICANN organization that more collaboration on the namespace topic would be needed. Though, the details of this collaboration was not discussed, yet, the feeling is that collaboration is most probably needed both on the technical and on more "policy" level. Especially, there is a feeling that as this discussion progresses technical clue from the IETF would be most welcomed. I think this is very positive and more cooperation and collaboration between the two organisations would most probably help both sides. It might be good for the IAB to think what a "cooperation with ICANN on namespace issues" would mean for the IETF. What needs and interests would IETF have. In my mind, this is not a relitigation of anything done in the past, but a positive way forward with the different roles the two organisations have. For instance, IAB might want to think what role could the TEG for instance have in bringing IETF related clue to ICANN. III. (If relevant) upcoming meeting topics of importance ========================================================= ICANN meeting, 11-16 March, 2017
–End ICANN Liaison Report, Jonne Soininen–
Andrew Sullivan noted that the IAB Names and Identifiers Program should provide advice on what cooperation with ICANN on namespaces issues would mean for the IETF. Suzanne Woolf noted that discussions are ongoing on the Program mailing list, and that the topic is also likely to be discussed at the DNSOP interim meeting scheduled for 16 February 2017.
2.4. IANA Liaison Report

2.5. RFC Editor Liaison Report
–Begin RFC Editor Liaison Report, Heather Flanagan–
RFC Series Editor Update Format The format tool developers, Henrik Levkowetz of Elf Tools and Sean Leonard of SeanTek, have met with the project managers, Heather Flanagan (RSE) and Robert Sparks. There will be a dashboard of goals and milestones off the Tools pages to keep people informed of the status of the development effort. Digital Preservation The I-D describing the general goals and expectations of digital preservation for RFCs, draft-iab-rfc-preservation, has been sent to the community in a Call for Comments. So far, comments received (mostly) request that we keep paper copies. RFC Production Center evaluation A questionnaire was sent to forty-one individuals, including 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. Of those forty-one individuals, nineteen have responded. Responses received were positive, with some interesting ideas for where the editing and publication process might improve. The RSE's evaluation, as well as the RPC's self-evaluation, was sent to the RSOC by the RSE and will be discussed on the next RSOC call. RPC update - SLA See: https://www.rfc-editor.org/report-summary/ Q1 2017: 25 documents were published in January but that is equivalent to 37 average-size documents (average RFC is 24 pgs/doc). The average was largely impacted by a few sizable documents (e.g., one was more than 200 pages). - Alice Russo on Maternity Leave Alice Russo is on maternity leave through May 2017. Coverage is in place within the RPC.
