Characterising the IETF Through the Lens of RFC Deployment
Stephen McQuistin will present our paper on Characterising the IETF Through the Lens of RFC Deployment at the ACM Internet Measurement Conference today.
This paper examines the shifts and trends within the Internet standards development process, to show how the time needed to develop a technical standard for the Internet has increased over the years, and how those standards have become more complex as the network has evolved. Then, building on these observations, it develops statistical models to understand the factors that lead to successful uptake and deployment of protocols, deriving insights to improve the standardisation process.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and Internet Measurement Conference is an online event this year. The following pre-recorded presentation will be shown, and we'll be available to answer questions during the conference:
