APNIC attended the 93rd Internet Engineering Task Force meeting (IETF93), held from 19 to 24 July 2015 in Prague, Czech Republic.
The IETF is an open Internet standards body that functions under the guidance of the Internet Society. It develops and promotes voluntary standards related to all aspects of the Internet protocol suite.
During the plenary session George Michaelson ‘hummed’ his acclamation along with the rest of the IETF93 plenary as Rob Blokzijl received the Jonathan B. Postel Service Award for 25 years of leadership at RIPE, and for enabling countless others to spread the Internet across Europe and beyond.
During the sessions, DNS security proved to be a popular discussion point, which inspired George to answer some frequently asked questions about DNS.
APNIC staff activities included:
- Geoff Huston, George Michaelson and Anton Strydom attended number related discussion sessions and met with RIR colleagues
- Before IETF 93 began, George attended a cryptographic workshop hosted by Cryptech as well as a Hackathon, which was organised to encourage developers to discuss, collaborate and develop utilities, ideas, sample code and solutions that show practical implementations of IETF standards.
