APNIC participated at IETF 104 in Prague, Czech Republic from 23 to 29 March 2019.
IETF 104, welcoming more than 1,200 participants, featured several discussions on technology developments impacting the networking industry, including deployment considerations for DNS confidentiality, Segment Routing, QUIC, In-situ Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (IOAM) and YANG versioning. It also included the Hackathon, co-located with the Netdev conference, which had the largest turnout so far, with 370 participants.
- At the SIDR Operations Working Group (sidrops), George Michaelson presented on the deployment plan for reconsidered validation.
- George also presented on Resource Tagged Attestations, which is a mechanism to permit any transaction to be associated with some Internet number resources.
- At the REGEXT Working Group, Tom Harrison presented on RDAP mirroring, which is a protocol for retrieving all of the data from an RDAP server’s data store, and for keeping a local copy of that data up to date over time.
- George, Tom and Anton Strydom also participated at the Number Resource Organization Engineering Coordination Group (NRO ECG) face-to-face meeting, held the weekend before the IETF meeting, to discuss ongoing projects the RIRs collectively are developing.
