It’s here! The whole Internet Society technology team is in London this week, along with about a thousand other Internet engineers, to discuss the latest issues in Internet protocol engineering at IETF 89. There’s a lot going on this week, and we’d love to talk with you about the work we’re doing and how we can help you. In the last ten days or so, we’ve published six “Rough Guide to IETF 89” posts including an overview and five posts related to our major topics:
- Routing resilience
- Internet scalability and performance
- DNSSEC, DANE, and DNS Security
- Trust, Identity, and Privacy
Coming up this week, we’ll be participating in *tons* of working groups and BoFs related to our topics of interest. We’re also interested in the Technical Plenary tonight, focusing on payment systems and Bitcoin. It will be live-streamed at http://www.ietf.org/live starting at 5:50PM UTC if you’re not here in London with us.
Tomorrow (Tuesday, 4 March), we’re holding our traditional ISOC@IETF briefing panel to discuss the work of the IETF in the context of the Internet and the world at large. This time, during “Evolution of end-to-end: why the Internet is not like any other network” we’ll be doing a retrospective about the end-to-end principle of the Internet, and considering some predictions for its future relevance. The panel will be live-streamed at https://plus.google.com/events/c1gfue9n0i7f5hanjfu6csgeo3g beginning at 11:45AM UTC.
