        Birds of a Feather at IETF 110

          3 Feb 2021

          A proposal aimed at addressing authentication challenges faced by Internet of Things (IoT) applications was approved for scheduling at IETF 110.

          IETF 110 Birds of a Feather

          Before each IETF meeting, the Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG) collects proposals for Birds of a Feather (BOF) sessions. These sessions are designed to help determine the path for new work in the IETF, to generate discussion about a topic within the IETF community, and to determine whether there is interest in working on the topic within the IETF.

          The IESG approved one non-working-group-forming BOF for scheduling at IETF 110: DANE Authentication for IoT Service Hardening (DANISH). DANISH will be discussing mechanisms to assist IoT applications with authentication across organizational boundaries and roots of trust. The BOF session will explore how DNS-Based Authentication of Named Entities (DANE) might be used to support both mutual authentication and object security use cases. Discussion was previously taking place on the IoT Onboarding and Security Dispatch mailing lists but has recently moved to the dedicated DANISH mailing list.

          Two additional BOF proposals were not approved for scheduling at IETF 110. 

          The DLT Gateway Protocol (DGP) BOF proposed to discuss the development of a gateway-to-gateway protocol for virtual asset transfers between distributed ledger technology (DLT) systems. The proponents will continue to refine the problem statement as well as the scoping of the solution design space and will seek to increase participation from experts within various DLT communities with the aim of proposing the BOF again for IETF 111. Discussion is taking place on the Blockchain Gateway Interoperability Protocol mailing list.

          The Application-Aware Networking (APN) BOF proposal was focused on developing a framework and set of mechanisms to derive, convey, and use an identifier to allow for the signaling of fine-grained user-, application-, and service-level requirements at the network layer. This proposal was made for several previous IETF meetings and will benefit from further focused discussion at IETF 110 during the Routing Area Working Group (RTGWG) and Internet Area Working Group (INTAREA) meetings. A virtual interim meeting of the RTGWG to be scheduled after IETF 110 will go into more depth on this topic. Discussion continues on the Application-aware Networking mailing list. 

          Although the lack of face-to-face interaction is acutely felt during the BOF development process, we continue to see innovative and thoughtful new proposals in the pipeline. Many thanks to the community for putting energy into the development of new work at the IETF!
