The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) held its 100th meeting, IETF 100 in Singapore from 11 to 17 November 2017.
The IETF is an international community of network designers, operators, engineers, vendors, and researchers concerned with the evolution of the architecture, and smooth operation of the Internet. This was the third of three conferences it holds each year and a milestone, with this 100th session commemorated at the opening plenary session.
- At the DNS OPs Working Group, Geoff Huston presented ‘A signalling mechanism for trusted keys in the DNS’ on whether a DNS query could reveal the state of the trusted keys of the resolvers.
- At the IPv6 Measurement Group, Geoff presented on ‘Surviving IPv6 fragmentation’.
- George Michaelson, Tom Harrison, Sofia Silva Berenguer and Anton Strydom attended several sessions including V6Ops, SIDROPs, REGEXT, IPPM, and DNSOp, and the IPv6 measurement, IEPG, and NRO’s ECG meetings.
- Tom worked on proof-of-concept RDAP and RPKI drafts, with brief discussion of that work with Verisign and RIPE NCC representatives.
- APNIC also contributed to the ISOC IETF Fellowship Program, providing support for two technical fellows to participate from the Asia Pacific region.
