Internet Society Liaison Report to the IAB 11 September 2017 Topics: I. Upcoming policy papers II. Engagements III. Highlights of recent activities I. Upcoming policy papers Community Network Spectrum Paper: This paper focuses on spectrum and policy options to make spectrum available to community networks (CNs). We plan to release the paper before the International Telecommunication Union's (ITU) World Telecommunication Development Conference 2018 (WTDC-18), and to work with regional colleagues during WTDC to promote community networks as a solution for providing affordable access to the underserved in rural, remote, and urban areas. Community Network Paper with the Digital Empowerment Foundation (DEF): This paper focuses on lessons learned and recommendations from one of ISOC's long-term partners in India - DEF. We have been working with DEF since 2010 to develop community networks in rural and remote communities in India through a joint project called the Wireless for Communities project (W4C). This paper provides insight into W4C's project work and policy recommendations to enable CNs in India. The paper will be released in tandem with a CN workshop in Delhi on 20 September that ISOC, DEF, and APC are sponsoring together. Barriers to Connectivity in Land-locked Developing Countries: A study on land-locked developing countries will be released in tandem with the ITU WTDC-18. The report focuses on barriers to connectivity and recommendations for removing those barriers. Case-studies across many regions will accompany the paper. ISOC's Global Internet Report 2017 - "Paths to our Digital Future" (Date - 18 September): The Internet Society launched an initiative in 2016 to identify the uncertainties and factors that will shape the future of the Internet. Through interviews, round-tables and surveys, we have identified the key forces of change that we believe will shape the Internet in the coming 5-7 years, and importantly how it will impact society, digital divides, and individual freedoms and rights.

I. Public Comments needing attention (only highlights) ======================================================= (All public comment processes: https://www.icann.org/public- comments#open-public) Statistical Analysis of DNS Abuse in gTLDs (SADAG) Report (https://www.icann.org/public-comments/sadag-final-2017-08-09-en) End: 19 September 2017 II. Topics that could be relevant ================================== Ongoing activities: Namespace issues ---------------- The namespace issues is an ongoing topic in ICANN. SSAC published a report already in December last year about it (SSAC90: https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/sac-090-en.pdf) and there has been a discussion between the ICANN board and SSAC in the last ICANN meeting. It is expected that this discussion will continue. In addition, GNSO has reached out to the DNSOP WG stating that they are planning work on this. This is most probably something IETF should pay attention to according IETF's abilities. In the namespace issues, collisions is one of the key topics among many more. Board renewal ------------- The ICANN NomCom has published its outcome. I would like to point out that they have chosen Avri Doria as one of the new board members. Avri comes with a lot IETF background even if she has been very active in the ICANN space for a long time. III. (If relevant) upcoming meeting topics of importance ========================================================= ICANN board retreat, September 21st-23rd, 2017

–Begin IANA Liaison Report, Michelle Cotton–
IANA Services Liaison Report – 13 September 2017 SLA Deliverables Update: - ICANN met 100% of processing goal times for the July 2017 monthly statistics reports, 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. - The process for drafting and review of the 2018 SLA has begun. Other News: - ICANN has begun interviewing candidates for the PTI President position. - The RFP for PTI Service Organization Control Audits was posted. https://www.icann.org/news/announcement-2017-08-11-en Responses are due September 8, 2017.

(draft-ietf- homenet-dot-14.txt), the IAB has been requested to officially approve the addition of home.arpa to the .arpa zone. IANA Services Operator and IETF Leadership Meeting Minutes: MEETING MINUTES - BEGIN Summary of Meeting Minutes Monday, July 17, 2017 Lunch Meeting at IETF-99, Prague 1030 UTC Attendees: Jari Arkko, IAB IANA Program Lead Amanda Baber, PTI Lead IANA Services Specialist Michelle Cotton, PTI Protocol Parameters Engagement Manager Ted Hardie, IAB Chair Russ Housley, IAB IANA Program Ray Pelletier, IAD Jonne Soininen, IAB liaison to ICANN Board Suzanne Woolf, IAB IANA Program 1. Introductions and Welcome Elise had a family commitment. She will be arriving at the IETF meeting Monday afternoon. 2. Review of Action Items Completed: FY19 budget timing information was sent to this group. In Progress: M. Cotton will send revised documentation for the Inactive Request process to the group (revision includes change to swim lane). In Progress: Finalizing the Inactive Request Process report and consulting with ICANN legal regarding distribution. 3. Performance Report Reviews Processed more than 1413 IETF-related requests during March 2017-June 2017. This includes: Document reviews, registry creations, new registrations, modifications to existing registrations, and deletions. Added 4 new stand-alone registries since IETF-98 (March 2017-June 2017). We continue to see a decline in the TRIP ITAD requests. Freenum previously advertised where to get a TRIP ITAD, however this appears to not exist anymore. Port requests continue to show acceptable response times. At this time there is enough experts in the pool to review requests. T. Hardie Question: What happens with registrations where the registrant has passed away? Does the contact/reference automatically pass to the IESG? M. Cotton responds that if there is any question about what the contact should be, the IESG would be asked. With system ports, it is likely that the IESG would become the change controller unless there is a strong reason for a different contact. There is a request coming in for changes to port 443 as it is wanted by another service. Mark Nottingham is working with the current registrant regarding the proposed changes. Media Type requests continue to be monitored with the assistance of Alexey Melnikov in his role as ART Area Director. There appears to be improvement in response times and there is no large backlog. Reviews do not appear to be completed by both experts at this time, however we will be discussing this topic at this IETF meeting. 4. SLA Deliverable Updates/Projects SLA Deliverables: Average cumulative percentage for January 2017 through June 2017 was 99.8%. The 2018 SLA will begin the review cycle in September 2017. No new deliverables or additions were discussed at this lunch meeting. If any group members think of anything that should be added, send email to the list. The preliminary work for the 2018 Annual Audit Review is underway. Samples have been requested and delivered. PWC is performing the audit this year and there will be an open bid for next year. Projects: Registry Workflow multi-year project Done: Data Modeling/Database design Done: Collecting all the wants/needs from IANA specialists processing requests Now: Migrating current registry model into database driven model Now: Focus Groups/Interviews with segmented groups in Prague Future: Take the feedback and prioritize. Decide what we can/cannot do Future: Determine if more feedback sessions are needed in Singapore Gathering feedback from registry users, experts, document authors, WG Chairs, etc. is the main focus for this IETF meeting. A call for volunteers to participate in feedback sessions was sent to the IETF list. Group discussions and 1-1s have been scheduled to discuss needs/ wants from IANA registries. Kim Davies and Ali Mohammadi are here from the IANA Services team to participate in the discussions. Kim Davies will also be in Singapore. An update on this work will be provided in Singapore.

2.4. RFC Editor Liaison Report
–Begin RFC Editor Liaison Report, Heather Flanagan–
RFC Series Editor Update - Format Text to XML: The tool that takes plain text Internet Drafts and transforms them into xml2rfc v2 files has gone through several updates as bugs are reported and decisions made as to whether they should be fixed in code or handled manually. The current version of the code is v1.2.2. The new version is available for installation with the python installation program, pip: 'pip install id2xml' RFCs with non-ASCII characters: draft-ietf-httpbis-rfc5987bis is now in AUTH48 as RFC-to-be 8187. This is the first draft to go through the publication process with non-ASCII characters. The precis document cluster (https://www.rfc-editor.org/cluster_info.php?cid=C326) is the next set of documents that will include non-ASCII characters. There are no other documents in queue with non-ASCII characters at this time; no additional documents with non-ASCII characters will be supported until the new format tools are tested and in place. Format -bis document authors: Henrik Levkowetz will be working as a co-author on draft-iab-xml2rfc-v3-bis or draft-iab-rfcv3-preptool-bis. Timeline: For an update on the planning timeline for the project, see: https://trac.tools.ietf.org/tools/ietfdb/wiki/FormatToolsPlan - Computer History Museum and RFC Digital Preservation The RFC Editor, IETF Trust, and Computer History Museum (CHM) have reached an agreement on the text of the MoU. Final signatures from the Trust and the CHM are expected in mid-September RPC Update - Errata information The Info pages have been updated to more clearly indicate when errata exist. If errata exist, the info pages shows “View Errata” (for example, see https://www.rfc-editor.org/info/rfc2119). If no errata exist, the “View Errata” button does not appear (for example, see https://www.rfc-editor.org/info/rfc821). This is the same handling as the HTML versions of RFCs available on the datatracker (see https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2119 and https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc821). - SLA See: https://www.rfc-editor.org/report-summary/ The RPC currently is trending to be in Tier1 for Q3. The Tier structure is a measure of the incoming workload. The expected turnaround time is adjusted based on the incoming workload. The streams have expressed they are content with the current rate of production. From the Reports page notes: Q3 2017: The editors continue to test id2xml and work on our internal scripts and environment to handle the multiple file formats. In addition, the RPC tested how the existing system and tools handle UTF-8 and made updates where possible. The editors will continue testing by working a specified set of documents that contain UTF-8 through the publication process. The first document containing UTF-8 is making its way through AUTH48. The number of pages submitted and moved to EDIT continue to be down so far this quarter. The decrease in submissions has allowed the editors more time to focus on testing. The RFC Editor has responded to one legal request and another is underway.
