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:
The paper and the
presentation slides are available to download.
