What’s Happening at the IETF? Internet Standards and How to Get Involved

Kevin Meynell, Internet Society

What’s happening at the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)? What RFCs and Internet-Drafts are in progress related to IPv6, DNSSEC, Routing Security/Resiliency, and other key topics? We’ll give an overview of the ongoing discussions in several working groups and discuss the outcomes of recent Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) sessions, and provide a preview of what to expect in future discussions.

Setting the Scene: IPv6 Deployment in Costa Rica and Latin America

Guillermo Cicileo, LACNIC

It’s been five years since World IPv6 Launch, when thousands of Internet Service Providers, home networking equipment manufacturers, and web companies around the world came together to permanently enable IPv6 on their products and services. Where are we now on the path to full global IPv6 adoption?

IPv6: Where are we in 2017?

Fred Baker

In June, the Internet Society will release a study of the Internet in 2017, and the place of IPv6 in it. In short, there are markets in which IPv6 is now dominant, and markets that are only starting their uptake. However, significant actors have started shutting IPv4 down where they can to simplify their networks and reduce the cost of operations. Fred Baker will discuss the state of play for IPv6 in 2017.

Panel Discussion: MANRS, Routing Security, and Collaboration

Kevin Meynell, Internet Society; Glenn Peace, IX.cr; Erika Vega, Renata

Collaboration and shared responsibility are two pillars supporting the Internet’s growth and success. While the global routing system has worked well, it has significant security challenges that we must address. In this panel, security experts will discuss how we can create a culture of collective responsibility and improve the global routing system, including an introduction to the “Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS).
10:45 AM

Introduction to DNSSEC and Why We Need It

Mauricio Oviedo, NIC.cr

DNSSEC helps prevent attackers from subverting and modifying DNS messages and sending users to wrong (and potentially malicious) sites. So what needs to be done for DNSSEC to be deployed on a large scale? We’ll discuss the reasons for deploying DNSSEC, examine some of the challenges operators have faced, and address those challenges and move deployment forward.
11:15 AM

Panel Discussion: IPv6 Success Stories

Moderator:  Christian O’Flaherty (Internet Society)
Panelists: Fred Baker; Elidier Moya (Costa Rica Telecom Ministry); Claudio Chacon (CEDIA Ecuador)

In this session, network operators will share their IPv6 success stories and lessons learned along the way that can help other managers of networks deploy IPv6. How did they do it? What technical, organizational, and political challenges did they face? Panelists will discuss the stages of IPv6 implementation—creating the business case for management buy-in, initiating a planning process, flipping the switch, and, finally, gathering measurements and proving success.
