    • Impressions from the Internet Architecture Board E-Impact Workshop

      The IAB ran an online workshop in December 2022 to begin to explore and understand the environmental impacts of the Internet. The discussion was active, and it will take time to summarise and produce the workshop report – but the topic is important, so we wanted to share some early impressions of the outcomes.

    The Yokohama IETF Hackathon is now in progress!

    There is a bit less people than in the previous one, but still a good turnout, and a good number of exciting projects:

    • IPv4 configuration through DHCPv6 (per RFC 7341)
    • Improving privacy through DPRIVE. Currently, DNS queries leak a lot of metadata information to access networks, even if actual communications are secure.
    • Home networking on IPv6, and the ability to support multiple home routers, multiple interfaces, and so on. Building new solutions on top of the HOMENET working group’s work.
    • Intent-based network modelling, generating network configuration from high level descriptions of what applications need, without the applications having to configure specific nodes or paths.
    • Building tools to test the myriad of configurations that ICE allows.
    • Data-based network control with I2RS, NETCONF, and YANG. Also building tools to help analyse and verify YANG models across IETF and other standards organisations and open source projects.
    • Improving Daala video codec.
    • Building information-centric networking on top of link layers directly, running on very small devices and the RIOT operating system.
    • Building support for Service Function Chaining (SFC), allowing complex or simple services to be built from network components in a flexible manner.

    I’m very excited to see the results of these projects tomorrow Sunday! I also wanted to thank Charles Eckel for running the show and Cisco DevNet for sponsoring the event!
