SINOG 5: IPv6, DNS Privacy and IoT Security

There will be significant Internet Society involvement at SINOG 5 next week, which is being co-organised by our colleague Jan Žorž, supported by ISOC, and will feature talks on NAT64Check and the Online Trust Alliance. SINOG is the Slovenian Network Operators Group, and the meeting is held on 7-8 June 2018 at the Biotehniška Fakulteta in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

It’s well worth coming for the keynote alone, which will be given by Ron Broersma (DREN) – one of the earliest Internet pioneers who operated Node #3 of ARPANET. He’ll be talking about IPv6, the Cloud, and a bit of Internet history, and as he was involved in the NCP-to-TCP/IP migration back in 1983, there are perhaps some lessons to be learned in migrating from IPv4-to-IPv6.

Following-on from this will be how IPv6 was implemented at IBM from Andy Mindnich (IBM), a discussion on the issues of CGN and IPv6 from a law enforcement perspective from Sara Marcolla (Europol), some of which we touched upon in a previous blog, and then an update on version 2 of the NAT64Check portal from Sander Steffann. NAT64Check is a tool allowing you to enter the URL of a particular website and run tests over IPv4, IPv6 and NAT64, and the development of this new version that will offer improved checks and aggregated statistics is being funded by ISOC.

Also worth highlighting is the talk on the Quad9: DNS Resolver from Nishal Goburdhan (PCH) which implements DNS queries over TLS between client and resolver, and on the challenges of routing security from Natalie Trenaman (RIPE NCC). Ivan Pepelnjak (ipSpace) is always good value for money, and will be kicking off Friday morning with his observations on real-life network monitoring.

Finally, just to mention my own presentation on OTA which will discuss the issues and challenges with IoT devices, and will present the OTA initiative which aims to promote best practices in protection of user security, privacy, identity, and data stewardship.

More information can be found on the SINOG website. The meeting is free to attend, although it is necessary to register.
