  • Time to update the Network Time Protocol

    The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is a foundational Internet standard that has provided clock synchronization between computer systems since the early 1980s. It was first standardized as RFC 958 in Sept 1984 with several revisions in the following years. Discussions have been ongoing in the NTP working group for a few years now about updating NTPv4 to NTPv5. This update is motivated by lessons learned, ongoing vulnerabilities, and emerging use cases.

          An in-depth paper on COVID mitigation at IETF 114 Philadelphia.

          Following on from IETF 114 Philadelphia, the IETF Administration LLC Board Chair, IETF Executive Director and IETF Managing Director have written a paper explaining the pandemic environment at the time of the meeting, the mitigations utilized, and the lessons learned. This paper can inform future IETF hybrid meetings during the COVID-19 pandemic (or potentially the later endemic phase) as well as other professional meetings that other organizations may hold.
