Current Ideas Queue

The following ideas are current:

Consolidation

See Jari's blog post on the subject. Lee has notes on a few potential speakers. We've already spoken to Geoff Huston on this subject. We haven't come up with something coherent to say here; the next step in a workshop, the report out from which might involve a plenary.

Decentralized Internet

Partially related to consolidation, an introduction to current work in decentralization of Internet infrastructure. Melinda to identify possible speakers and invite them for tech talks.

Straws and Camels

At IETF 101, there was an active topic of discussion in DNSOP how successful protocols get overloaded; this could be expanded into a general topic on the lifecycle of protocol ecosystems.

Next step: Suzanne developing the concept.

Snowden +N years

Review how the IETF has done on the problem of pervasive surveillance since RFC7258, and look forward to the next challenges in the space. Alissa as IETF privacy expert; externals (Allison to schedule tech chat with Dierdre Mulligan)

Future of Remote Participation in the IETF

Look forward to technical developments in remote participation technologies, and foster a discussion about how this affects how we work. (Since the IESG runs the meeting program, this seems like one to discuss in close cooperation with the IESG)

The Web PKI: What we've learned

Wrap-up of recent developments/improvements in the web PKI -- how we got to the messy place, and why it's not as bad as it used to be.

Speakers: TBD

Next step: wait for it to get even more better.

Privacy update

Corinne Cath suggested the following speakers:

5G

BGP 30th Anniversary

  • Alissa pointed out that this summer is the 30th anniversary of the publication of BPG. Kirk Lougheed? (Also, June 2019 is the 20th anniversary of the publication of HTTP 1.1)

Past Ideas

These ideas were in an older version of this queue, and have "timed out" or were otherwise not acted upon, but are kept here in list form, as a reminder that we've considered them:

  • Challenges to HTTPS Adoption in Media Websites
  • IoT and Augmented Reality / Overview of IETF IoT Topics
  • Naming and Privacy / Hostname Practice Considered Harmful
  • The Cryptographic Lens (watch the YouTube video)
  • Data Driven Security
  • The Internet and Futurism
  • Hub of All Things
  • The Lack of Low Justice in the Internet
