Welcome Lunch

All participants of the Canadian ISP Summit are welcome to attend this lunch.

12:30 PM

Opening Remarks 

Speaker: Dan York (Internet Society)

Dan will discuss the Internet Society Deploy360 Programme, the resources currently available, and the process of gathering community feedback to add more information to this open resource.

12:45 PM

ISOC Canada 

Speaker: Glenn McKnight (Internet Society Canada)

The ISOC Canada Chapter formally launched in 2013 and is fast becoming one of Canada’s leading organizations, reaching all Canadians from coast to coast to coast. Learn more about ISOC and its mandate and how the Canadian Chapter is breaking new ground in helping build awareness on the importance of Internet issues.

1:00 PM

Why Implement DNSSEC?

Speaker: James Galvin (Afilias Limited)

What is DNSSEC and why is it so important? We’ll discuss the business reasons for, and financial implications of, deploying DNSSEC, from staying ahead of the technological curve, to staying ahead of your competition, to keeping your customers satisfied and secure on the Internet.

1:30 PM

Deploying DNSSEC: A .CA Case Study

Speaker: Jacques Latour (Canadian Internet Registration Authority)

CIRA has completed two phases of a three-phased approach to implement DNSSEC on the .CA country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD). First, they released a DNSSEC Practice Statement for comment, providing an operational outline of how CIRA plans to develop, maintain and manage DNSSEC deployment for .CA. Next, they held a key signing ceremony where they generated the cryptographic digital key that is used to secure the .CA zone. On January 21, 2013, CIRA published a signed .CA zone file, and on January 23, the .CA DS record was submitted to the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA). The next phase of CIRA’s work in implementing DNSSEC is to make the necessary upgrades to ready the registry system for transacting DNSSEC-enabled .CA domain names. This work is expected to be complete in 2014. Once complete, CIRA will be able to register DNSSEC-enabled .CA domain names.

This session will explore CIRA’s technical solution for deploying DNSSEC support in the .CA registry. With our goal of making it easier for registrars, registrants and DNS operator to support any combination of DS and DNSKEY registration. We will take a quick look at our DNSSEC awareness strategy, the status/progress of .CA signed domains, and our lessons learned and challenges for increasing numbers of signed domain names.

2:00 PM

IPv6 Deployment Update: Where Are We Today? 

Speaker: Tim Winters (University of New Hampshire Interoperability Lab)

In this session, Tim will discuss the current state of IPv6 adoption across the globe, including statistics and lessons learned from and since World IPv6 Launch, and the next steps needed to move forward with IPv6 deployment.

2:30 PM


2:50 PM

IETF Update

Speaker: Dan York (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? Dan will 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.

3:05 PM

Best Current Operational Practices: A Global Perspective

Speaker: Jan Žorž (Internet Society)

The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standardizes the protocols and services that vendors implement and network operators are supposed to deploy and use. We believe there is an opportunity to better identify, capture, and promote best current operational practices documents emerging from various regional network operators’  groups. We believe sharing these documents across the globe would benefit the wider Internet community and help more operators deploy new technologies like IPv6 and DNSSEC faster and easier. Many operators need down-to-earth information on how to fix their current issues and how to implement new technologies coming out of the IETF. How can the Internet Society help facilitate this work?

3:20 PM

Panel: Improving The Resilience And Security Of The Internet’s Routing

Moderator: Paul Andersen (EGATE Networks Inc.); Panelists: Merike Kaeo (Internet Identity), Sandra Murphy (Sparta, Inc.), Eric Osterweil (Verisign), Andrew Sullivan (Dyn, Inc.)

How do we improve the resilience and security of the Internet’s underlying routing infrastructure?  While Internet routing has worked well over the years, there have been instances where errors and misconfiguration have caused stability issues. Malicious attackers have also created denial of service attacks and other issues by spoofing IP addresses and manipulating routing tables. What are the best practices we can use to help mitigate these kind of attacks? What new routing technologies or standards are being developed to address these threats? How can we as an Internet community make the Internet more resilient and secure?

4:20 PM

Closing Remarks and iPad Raffle Drawing

Speaker: Dan York (Internet Society)

Dan wrapped up ION Toronto with some closing remarks, a list of available resources and a request for feedback about the session and about how the Deploy360 Programme can be of assistance.

4:30 PM
