3.2. IRTF Chair Report

–Begin IRTF Chair Report, Allison Mankin–

IRTF Report for May 2018 (submitted May 9, 2018)

The Chairs, steering committee, and others worked hard to promote the 
Call for Papers, and 40 submissions came in.  The planning for the space 
and schedule with the Secretariat is under way.  Still to be done: 
determine with IAD/IAOC what IETF access we can bundle with the non-
IETFers’ admission fee for the workshop (and at what price), so as to 
encourage the new folks to join in at IETF.

Also still to be done: on May 14, the chairs and I will work on 
identifying the topics of tracks in workshop to aid scheduling.  No RGs 
will be scheduled, but for WGs, there may be tracks that people want to 
encourage attendance to the workshop.

The upcoming ANRP awardees will be “announced” and promoted starting the 
last week of May.  As previously reported here, they are:

Panos Papadimitratos, KTH, SECMACE: Scalable and Robust Identity and 
Credential Infrastructure in Vehicular Communication, IEEE ITS (to 
appear 4/18)

Maria Apostolaki, ETHZ, Hijacking Bitcoin: Routing Attacks on 
Cryptocurrencies, IEEE S&P 2017

ETHZ promoted Maria’s paper and the ANRP call on twitter during the buzz 
about the routing/DNS hack by the Bitcoin thieves, and we retweeted.  
This will be a very timely and interesting talk.  

During scheduling, plan is to keep the IRTFOPEN meeting clear of 
security  (to the extent possible) and IoT WGs.

In other news, thanks to sponsorship contributions from Comcast and NBC 
Universal, we have invited two past ANRP awardees for return visits in 
Montreal, Samuel Jero, who works on QUIC measurement, and Roya Ensafi, 
who works on censorship and privacy topics.  Roya will present new work 
in the HRPC RG.  Samuel will be in touch with the QUIC chairs and the 
TSV ADs about ways he can contribute during his return visit.

Status of Proposed and Potential Research Groups 
Path-Aware Networking Proposed RG (PANRG) is ready to transition from 
Proposed Research Group to RG.  This follows a discussion by the IRSG 
and some small tweaks to the charter to clarify that PANRG is very 
consciously using the results of past attempts on this topic in the IETF 
and trying to steer through past pitfalls to useful eventual future 

Proposed Quantum Internet RG is actively using its mailing list 
( As mentioned last month, there are currently two co-
chairs, Rod van Meter (Keio University) and Stephanie Wehner (TU Delft)

Privacy Enhancements and Assessment Proposed Research Group  (PEARG) has 
a mailing list coming out this week, and will begin public discussions 
of its charter after a few more comments of the IRTF Chair are 
addressed.  PEARG will closely coordinate with CFRG.

Looking for a new co-chair for HRPC RG.  Niels ten Oever resigned his 
co-chairship in favor of more efforts on his document work within the 

Informal work underway:  Marie-José Montpetit is planning to organize a 
non-RG forming side meeting to talk in Montreal about the ML research 
directions in applied networking.  It is non-RG forming because of the 
past Proposed RG on this topic that failed to lift off.  Current thought 
is a non-RG mailing list and wiki can be used to inform ML aspects of 
other RGs.

More RGs’ status next month as the planning continues.


A set of requested updates to the datatracker for the IRTF and IRSG was 
presented in April, and Mat Ford implemented one great fix, a search 
field for IRTF states, which was brought into an April release.  Other 
requests include datatracker support for the IRSG reviews and ballots on

learn about what IANA Services are provided for the IETF and what the 
relationships are.
2.  Review of Action Items
Inactive Process Report: M.Cotton is updating the report with the data 
for 2017.
Report back to IESG about ports process: Last IETF meeting we did an 
overview of the ports process including what was currently in the queue, 
how the processing of requests was working and what problems there were.   
Full report went to small group which was made up of the Transport Area 
Directors and Alexey Melnikov. May start using mailing list, so that 
multiple experts can join conversation about requests.  Details of 
changes to the process will be discussed amongst the smaller group this 

New Action item:  IETF leadership to describe how RFC 7154 applies to 
the work of experts for IETF-designated protocol parameter registries.

Provide updates related to GDPR: Update included in notes below. 
3. IANA Services Activity
Processed more than 1483 IETF-related requests from October 2017 - 
February 2018. This includes: Document reviews, registry creations, new 
registrations, modifications to existing registrations, and deletions.  
This reporting period was for 5 months as opposed to the normal 4-month 
Added 10 new stand-alone registries since IETF-100 (October 2017- 
February 2018)
Looking at how to report creation of registries within existing URLs.

R. Housley had a question regarding one of the new registries created.

New Action Item: Send Russ detailed information about xmss-hash-based

2018. No remediation required.
Proposed 2018 SLA was approved via an e-vote by the IAOC. Ready for 
5. Discussion Items
- Protocol Parameter Queues
A small group is working on improvements to the port review process. 
Will report to IESG results.
A. Baber reported the status of media-types to the IESG at the Sunday 
breakfast meeting. A. Melnikov continues to assist with making 
improvements to the process and looking at requests that need review. A. 
Melnikov wants the secondary expert to take a more primary role, with 
the primary expert adding comments after the initial review. Discussed 
adding another expert, but second expert pointed out that training took 
months. May be useful to set up meeting with experts to document more 
information about what is required as part of an expert review so this 
can be recorded for future expert use. A. Cooper will talk to Alexey 
about this.
- Satisfaction Survey
Oct 2016- Nov 2017 customer survey completed. Low response rate from 
IESG, as before. Registry accuracy rated as most important factor for 
IANA performance. Happiness roughly same as recent years (methodology 
change – inclusion of “not applicable” category – made total 
satisfaction numbers shift lower). Significantly lower number of 
participants; reason unclear, unless timing (circa meeting) was an 
issue. Moving toward adding a post-ticket survey in addition to annual 
- General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)
K. Davies, who has more contact w/legal team, updates the group on 
ICANN’s activities related to GDPR.

IETF leadership, IETF counsel and ICANN folks are meeting later today to 
discuss GDPR in more detail.

For IANA, we don’t set policies for how information is displayed in 
registries.  Generally speaking, there are two registration buckets: 1) 
public good, defined protocol purpose (i.e. “port 25”; most IETF 
registrations are like this) 2) assigned to person or legal entity, 
typically FCFS. We want to avoid collision on these lists; direct them 
to value if they already have one.


T. Hardie: As with URI schemes, avoiding collisions is the public good 
we’re seeking.

As with PEN, they won’t collide with other numbers.

K. Davies: We can avoid collisions with PEN numbers without saying who 
has numbers in registry. Analysis needs to be done.

J. Arkko: I could take contact info and ask someone “what is this 

K. Davies: We need to capture legitimate business uses so we can defend 
them. There are probably cases where the RFC tells us to capture data – 
hopefully minor ones – that can’t be defended. For example, TRIP ITAD 
RFC requires us to collect postal addresses. Doesn’t say we need to 
publish. One thing that needs to be clarified: for what purpose is party 
listed as change controller? People may have slightly different 
assumptions about this. People making registrations need to know why 
they’re being listed.

Michelle: Per RFC 8126, for FCFS and Expert Review (and sometimes Spec 
Required) we need a change controller in case the contact disappears and 
need to know who can authorize changes.

Ted: worried that telephony stuff in stir is motivated by regulatory 
with FCC that require some identification, and which would conflict with 
GDPR. For early registries, there was likely a government body that said 
that this data had to be collected. Talk to Jon Peterson or Berger. For 
early registries, there was likely a government body that said that this 
data had to be collected. May no longer be salient government body.

A. Cooper is sending TRIP author a note.

Ted: Do you want us to help you find out which registries require 
identifying information for which reasons?

K. Davies: We need to do an analysis. Have only been discussing this 
with legal for a few weeks.

M. Cotton: We need to inventory the registries that we have for types of 
contact info.

T. Hardie: You will do first-cut analysis, then experts?

M. Cotton: Yes

K. Davies: We need RFCs to be more disciplined in future about telling 
us whether we’re collecting or publishing data, and assumptions about 
why this data is being captured needs to be spelled out.

P. Wenze-Danley: RFC Editor is focused on GDPR as required per 
legitimate expert. There’s no way that they can not have information. 
They’re not looking at it from consent aspect. IETF tools is looking at 
identifying where contact information is.

Michelle: In future Last Call and Evaluation reviews, we’ll push back on 
personal information in registries.

Action Item: M. Cotton to provide inventory report for Protocol 
Parameter registries for GDPR/PII
- .arpa is now in the .arpa zone.
Changes to the .arpa domain are needed as .arpa is currently served by 
the root name servers. A two-phase approach was discussed: 1)  renaming 
name servers serving .arpa to other naming scheme (removes glue conflict 
when we change the glue); 2) this will take longer: moving authorities 
to different hosts. Recommended approach is to separate .arpa and root; 
overlap is historic and not required.

Action Item: M. Cotton and K. Davies to write an I-D with the proposed 
plan. Share with the IAB before posting.

 - Registry Workflow System Update (K. Davies)

K. Davies provided an update on the Registry Workflow System. 

 Prototype of imported data deployed internally for staff review. Corner 
cases that don’t fit schema identified. Will contact authors/experts and 
ask whether they can be normalized per our schema, or whether we need to 
adapt. Aim to share on limited basis with leadership/trusted experts. 
Beginning work on request submission process with forms generated from 
the registry fields in the database.  More updates will be provided at 
the IETF meeting in Montreal.

 - Other Business
RSM is the new audit firm for SOC2/SOC3 audits.
Director of Technical Services position is now open.
KSK rollover update: planned for Oct 11, 2018. Public comment on plans 
currently underway. Comments open until April 1.

RFC Editor Liaison Report


  - GDPR: A statement regarding personal data handling in the context of 
    GDPR has been reviewed by legal counsel and posted on the RFC Editor 



Q2 2018 notes: While the number of documents and pages moved to EDIT 
have slowed so far in Q2, the editors continue to work their way through 
the Q1 influx. In addition to the heavy queue load, the editors are also 
working on testing v3-related tools, namely svgcheck, rfclint, and rfc-
xmldiff. The RFC Editor has also agreed to partake in an  experiment 
whereby GitHub will be used for AUTH48 processing for draft-ietf-tls-
tls13-28 (currently being edited) and draft-ietf-rtcweb-jsep-24 
(currently in MISSREF).  The usual editorial process will be altered in 
that all questions will be held until AUTH48, which may elongate AUTH48.

As noted for Q1, the RPC has developed a process to check that YANG 
modules are well formatted and ready to be posted on the IANA website.  
The RPC continues to work with Martin Bjorklund and the YANG authors to 
improve the process of preparing and passing module files to IANA for 
posting on their site.
