    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.
