Recent Papers Meeting Europe's Connectivity Challenge: The Role for Community Networks; Brussels, 4 July 2018. A new paper commissioned by Internet Society on Meeting the Internet Connectivity Challenge – The Role for Community Networks, was launched at CEPS in Brussels on 4 July 2018. The paper looks at the challenges and opportunities for community networks to set up, maintain and expand operations. It draws lessons learned from a selection of European projects. The overall conclusion is that successful community networks are possible to build, overcoming the digital divide and insuring that the remotest regions benefit from connecting to the Internet.

Recent Activities and Engagements Enhancing IoT Security; Ottowa, Canada, 21 June Enhancing IoT Security held a webinar for new participants and had its second multistakeholder meeting in Ottawa on June 21. Former Chair of the IAB, and new CEO of the Internet Society, Andrew Sullivan moderated the conversation and participants formed three working groups on labelling, consumer education, and network resiliency. Read the report from the meeting (https://iotsecurity2018.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/ Multistakeholder-Meeting-2-Report.pdf). African Chapters Advocacy meeting; Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 21 June The Africa Regional Bureau organized the African Chapters Advocacy meeting in Ethiopia on the 21st of June. The meeting was attended by 27 fellows from 24 chapters and 1 Special Interest Group (CNsSIG). The meeting was a combination of capacity building, engagement, advocacy and mobilization to advance CNs in Africa and achieve focused positive impact through the Internet Society's 2018 campaigns. It was also an occasion for the Chapters to engage with the AUC. Africa Community Networks workshop; Addis Ababa, Ethiopia - 19 -20 June The Africa Regional Bureau and the African Union Commission (AUC) held a CN focused workshop in Addis Ababa from 19-20 June 2018. The workshop was attended by representatives of the AUC, Regional Economic Communities (RECs), Regulators associations and the Association of Progressive Communications (APC). It brought together global and successful African Community Networks (CNs), to share their experiences in demonstrating the great possibility of building sustainable CNs across the African continent. Internet Governance Programme for the Philippine government, 11-13 July, Manila, Philippines In partnership with the Asia-Pacific Telecommunity, the Philippines' Department of ICT and the Philippine Chapter, the APAC Bureau conducted a 3-day training programme on Internet governance in Manila, with more than 70 representatives from government participating Enhancing IoT Security Focus Group, 17 July, Montreal, Canada. As part of the Canadian Multistakeholder Process: Enhancing IoT Security, the North American Regional Bureau, in partnership with the Quebec Chapter, hosted a focus group to gain an understanding of how to best engage the Internet community in Quebec, and to begin planning a full multistakeholder event in the province later in 2018. Discussion at the focus group in Montreal centered on who is responsible for IoT security, the challenges of securing consumer-level IoT devices, what aspects of IoT need to be addressed most urgently, and potentially creating a full meeting of a multistakeholder group in the Province of Quebec. The focus group was conducted in both English and French. A report on the focus group is available here. https://iotsecurity2018.ca/ wp-content/uploads/2018/07/French-Focus-Group-Canadian-Multistakeholder- Process.pdf

2.2. IRTF Chair Report
–Begin IRTF Chair Report, Allison Mankin–
IRTF Report for July 2018 (submitted August 8, 2018) ANRW The co-chairs for ANRW19 will be Jana Iyengar and Phillipa Gill. Phillipa is on the CS Faculty at University of Massachusetts (US). Note: final confirmation for Phillipa is pending. Phillipa was on the ANRW18 TPC, and the ANRW18 co-chair, Sharon Goldberg, was her doctoral advisor. Jana is well-known to the IAB, IESG and IRSG, of course. Both co-chairs are distinguished in academic circles and ANRW will be very fortunate to have their leadership. As all know, in an experiment originally proposed by Sharon, ANRW18 took place on the Monday of IETF week, so that researchers and IETFers would mingle more. The Secretariat supported scheduling to de-conflict topical sessions from WGs as much as possible, and RGs were not permitted to meet on the ANRW day. The goal of mingling was very well met. IRTF’s recommendation is to hold the next ANRW on IETF Monday again, in Montreal next summer (IETF 105). Results from the Secretariat’s survey questions about ANRW are still pending and will be taken into account. Based on figures pulled by Mat Ford, here are the numbers supporting this recommendation: Total registered for ANRW18 in all categories - 104, increase of 40-60 over ANRW17. Of these, by their registration categories , 87 also participated in the IETF week. Total IETFers not registered for ANRW who attended some session is unknown, but the room, which held over 200, was completely full for several sessions. Newcomer Info 17 of those registered for ANRW were first-timers to any IETF 12 were people who had been to only 2-5 IETF meetings before. ANRP News The ANRP awardees for IETF 103 will be “announced” and promoted starting in mid-September. As previously reported, they are: Johanna Amann, ICSI, Mission Accomplished: HTTPS Security After DigiNotar, IMC 2017 Arash Molavi Kakhki, Thousand Eyes, Taking a Long Look at QUIC: An Approach for Rigorous Evaluation of Rapidly Evolving Transport Protocols, IMC 2017 IRTF is soon going to start the new cycle of ANRP-selection. Folks wishing to be on the selection TPC should send a direct mail to IRTF- Chair - we will have a balance of past awardees and IRTF/IETF folks in this TPC. Status of Research Groups Proposed Path-Aware Networking (PANRG) moved from Proposed RG to RG Distributed Internet Infrastructure Proposed RG (DINRG) is in review for move to RG, now, with IRSG about to give their comments. There was no announce tool hook-up for IRTF Chair, but Alexa Morris has fixed this problem, so look also for a request for comments on the DINRG promotion on the IRTF-Discuss mailing list. Concluded Network Function Virtualization RG (NFVRG) will be moved to Concluded as soon as one document is sent for Conflict Review this week. Potential Research Groups There are currently three requests for RG in IRTF Chair review. The furthest along, and the only one with a full charter draft, is for new research into infosecurity defense, proposed by Kirsty Paine, National Cyber Security Centre. Kathleen Moriarty has worked on the proposal too, and is interested in serving co-RG chair. IAB RG Reviews The IAB reviewed CFRG during its Thursday business meeting in Montreal. IRTF Tools The datatracker now has a Shepherd facility for the RG Chairs and IRTF Chair to use - thanks to Robert Sparks! Other improvements supporting IRTF Workflow are still in the backlog. A request to support the IRSG review and ballot process with tooling may be shifted over to non-IETF tools.

2.4. RFC Editor Liaison Report
–Begin RFC Editor Liaison Report, Heather Flanagan–
RSE * IETF 102 After an intense IETF 102 meeting, the RSE came away with the understanding that the questions regarding how individuals interpret (or fail to notice) the different streams and statuses possible within the RFC Series is an important, but not particularly urgent, problem. Addressing these concerns is on the list of things for the RSE to consider, and discussions have started with individuals experienced with questions around marketing and branding on how to best address the issues involved. In terms of priority, however, it is lower on the list than seeing documents published as RFCs and completing the RFC format effort. * RFC Format Megan Ferguson, Heather Flanagan, Paul Hoffman, Henrik Levkowetz, Alice Russo, Jim Schaad, and Robert Sparks met during IETF 102 to discuss the state of the RFC format tools. Many of the required tools are being tested by the RPC; the community will be solicited to help with general user testing after the first round of testing is completed by the RPC. For issues found that will require updating the various requirement documents (see RFCs 7990-7998) issues will be opened in the appropriate GitHub repository (https://github.com/rfc-format) and discussed on the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list (https://www.ietf.org/mailman/ listinfo/xml2rfc-dev). See https://trac.tools.ietf.org/tools/ietfdb/wiki/FormatToolsPlan for information on the expected release schedule for the various tools. * Fifty Years of RFCs 2019 will mark the fiftieth year of publishing RFCs. The RSE is starting work on writing a document to commemorate that milestone, and has reached out to several key individuals to offer their thoughts on the past, present, and future of the series. RPC * https://www.rfc-editor.org/report-summary/ See the reports page for the latest information on the SLA. The RPC had a productive meeting at IETF 102, meeting with authors and readers of RFCs, the stream managers, and the developers of the v3 format tools.
