The IETF 100 meeting was held from November 11-17, 2017 in Singapore
- Brian Trammell, Colin Perkins, Tommy Pauly, Mirja Kuehlewind, and Chris Wood, Post Sockets, An Abstract Programming Interface for the Transport Layer (.txt|.pdf), Internet Engineering Task Force, September 2017, Work in progress (draft-trammell-taps-post-sockets-01.txt).
This version is a major update that:
- synchronises with our paper in the IFIP Networking workshop on Future of Internet Transport;
- redraws and clarifies the Abstractions and Terminology diagram;
- reworks the mechanism for handling content of indeterminate length, introducing the concepts of Complete and Partial Messages, allowing Post Sockets to directly support raw TCP streams;
- expands the discussion of message priority, lifetimes, dependencies, etc.
- expands the discussion of Associations that exist without a Carrier, for example to maintain cryptographic state between connections, and their associated Policy Context;
- adds an example of association bootstrapping;
- expands the implementation considerations section, especially around Protocol Stack Instances; Message Framing, Parsing, and Serialization; and Associations, Transients, Racing, and Rendezvous;
- and temporarily removes the API sketch.
- Jörg Ott, Roni Even, Colin Perkins, and Varun Singh, RTP over QUIC (.txt|.pdf), Internet Engineering Task Force, September 2017, Work in progress (draft-rtpfolks-quic-rtp-over-quic-01.txt).
This version rewrites the Introduction, and adds discussion of use cases, reliability, congestion control, RTCP mapping, the API, and multiparty session. It also make various clarifications and editorial fixes throughout.
- Mark Handley, Van Jacobson, Colin Perkins, and Ali Begen, SDP: Session Description Protocol (.txt|.pdf), Internet Engineering Task Force, October 2017, Work in progress (draft-ietf-mmusic-rfc4566bis-24.txt).
This version clarifies terminology around media descriptions and session-level sections; removes an outdated Editor's Note, and updates the references and authors.
- Mark Handley, Van Jacobson, Colin Perkins, and Ali Begen, SDP: Session Description Protocol (.txt|.pdf), Internet Engineering Task Force, September 2017, Work in progress (draft-ietf-mmusic-rfc4566bis-23.txt).
This version is now very explicit that "k=" is obsolete and insecure, and MUST NOT be used.
- Gorry Fairhurst and Colin Perkins, The Impact of Transport Header Encryption on Operation and Evolution of the Internet (.txt|.pdf), Internet Engineering Task Force, September 2017, Work in progress (draft-fairhurst-tsvwg-transport-encrypt-04.txt).
This draft discusses the implications of end-to-end encryption of the transport layer on network operations, management, transport protocol design, and on the evolution of the network. I joined Gorry Fairhurst as a co-author with this version of the draft, which restructures the material to (hopefully) make it easier to follow.
