Deploy360@IETF94, Day4: DNSSEC & IPv6-related Internet-of-Things

DNS team at IETF 93 hackathonThe fourth day at IETF 94 in Yokohama is a busy one for the Deploy360 team following DNSSEC and the IPv6 related aspects of DHCP and the Internet-of-Things. There’s unfortunately another clash between several of these sessions, so some shuttling between rooms is going to be necessary.


NOTE: If you are unable to attend IETF 94 in person, there are multiple ways to participate remotely.


The dnsop (DNS Operations) Working Group will be meeting during the 09.00-11.30 UTC+9 block, with a good amount of DNSSEC on the agenda.  First is the ongoing BCP work to document the problems that DNSSEC resolvers might run into within non-compliant infrastructure.  There’s also a proposal to introduce a new EDNS option to measure acceptance and use of new trust anchors and key signing keys. And there will be discussion on a draft about improving the communication of DS records between parent and child zones.

For those interested in the Internet-of-Things, there are several sessions related to implementing IPv6 on nodes with limited power, memory and processing resources. The 6tisch (IPv6 over Networks of Resource-Constrained Nodes) Working Group will also be meeting during the 09.00-11.30 UTC+9 block, with 6tisch (IPv6 over the TSCH mode of IEEE 802.15.4e) Working Group meeting during the 15.20-17.20 UTC+9 block, and the roll (Routing Over Low Power and Lossy Networks) Working Group meeting during 17.40-18.40 UTC+9 block.

Also in the 15.20-17.20 UTC+9 block, the dhc (Dynamic Host Configuration) Working Group will discussing several drafts related to DHCPv6, including security and encryption mechanisms.
