    * No issues raised. Minutes last call approved.
    * **Thomas** There was a security call on Tuesday. Went through

    * IETF91 agenda is final. Meeting is 9am in Hawaii, i.e. 8pm CET time same
    day. * Meetecho available. Remote presentations and remote attendance. *
    Recording and minutes will reflect remote participation. * **Michael**

    **Thomas** First time that every session is in meetecho. * For remote
    presenters, there will be tests to make sure everything works well. * This
    Monday is the cut-off date for draft submission. Authors are called to
    submit their drafts before Monday. * Monday is also cutoff for draft
    agenda. * Initial agenda for 6TiSCH WG meeting.
        * present latest changes on drafts
        * TSCH draft, 6top interface draft, and minimal
        * introduction to plugtest at 93rd IETF meeting, with help of ETSI.
        Renamed from plugfest to plugtest as it related to verification. *
        Rechartering discussion to define next steps (include dynamic
        scheduling, etc.) * Security: Michael will present a revision of his
        draft and then René has remarks > Action: **Thomas** to update
        draft-ietf-6tisch-tsch by cut-off date. * Maria Rita volunteers to
        present TSCH draft * Xavi volunteers to present minimal and 6top
        interface drafts, if necessary * Both presenters will do it remotely.
* _[08.19]_ draft-ietf-6tisch-tsch-02 publication **[Thomas]**
    * version 02 published
    * follows the rewording proposed during the call
    * 3 issues still open:
        * http://tools.ietf.org/wg/6tisch/trac/ticket/25. Rewording proposal.
        Rene did not agree. There is a follow up at the ML. * an issue is
        opened to change mote to node as node is what we agreed. * **Pascal**
        what about term "LLN nodes"? * **Thomas** suggests to use term "LLN
        node" in first occurrence and follow with "node".
    * **Pascal** several draft are going to be sent to the IESG in November.
    The last call will be announced at IETF91 and then we will have an
    evaluation/call for consensus for 2 weeks before submitting. * List of
    drafts considered: TSCH, Minimal, 6top-interface, CoAP. We need to decide
    what we do with them. * **Thomas** what about architecture draft? What is
    the current status and what is the timeline for this draft. * **Thomas**
    Would there be a problem if we recharter without having finalized the
    architecture draft? * **Pascal** I do not see any specific problem. *
    **Thomas** what about the CoAP draft? what should we do? Wait for the COMAN
    activity with constrained RESTCOnf draft? or push for our CoAP draft. *
    **Pascal** we have milestones with the IESG. We can delay the CoAP draft
    after recharter to see what is the progress of the RESTConf, etc. *
    **Raghuram** Agrees to wait. > Action: **Pascal** and **Thomas** to talk
    to Ted about whether to push for 6TiSCH-specific CoAP draft, or wait for
    generic constrained management solution. * **Michael** asks if there is a
    date for the ETSI event. * **Thomas** there is no specific date but it
    might be a couple of days before (or Monday) talking to IETF to see if this
    is possible. Target is July 2015 in Prague right before IETF93 is the
    target. * **Michael** the Contiki people planned to have a conference, hack
    fest right before. This might be a conflict. * **Thomas** the ETSI test
    event is not a long thing it is just a set of schedules of tests and people
    attend to their specific tests. * **Ariton** Regarding the interop. Are
    there going to be a set of scenarios? * **Thomas** yes. The plan is to
    develop the test scenarios and come out with a set of tests (end March) *
    **Ariton** there will not be certification on that event. * **Thomas** not
    sure. We need to check with ETSI. * The point is to make standard better.
    the outcome is to validate to our documents are correct and we are
    "optimal" in their design.
* _[08.xx]_ wrapping up draft-ietf-6tisch-minimal **[Xavi]**
    * change in the CCA option. Reflected in the drawing at the beginning of TX
    slot, timing before CCA. This is a clarification to follow exactly the
    standard * added the missing timing * open questions, need opinion
        * HbH header compression. Agreed last time to go to 6lo. Should not
        limit further extensions even at cost of additional byte? * what should
        minimal specify for security? * asking implementors if IE we are
        sending are enough?
    * **Pascal**: published draft-thubert-6lo-rpl-nhc-02
    * offers 3 possibilities:
        * (greedy) the one from NHC: consume 1/4 of NHC space (64 possibilities
        used) * (conservative) don't change layout at all, enumeration in
        6LoWPAN NHC already, consume new header (but then need full byte after
        it) (1 possibilities used, but extra byte) * (middle) idea from
        Carsten: limit the same to something the same as greedy, but add a byte
        when "error". Consumes 4 bits (~20 possibilities used, 1 extra byte
        when error)
    * **Thomas** what is an "error"?
    * **Pascal** forwarding error (O,F bits)
    * **Pascal** problem is that you might need to change packet length during
    forwarding * **Thomas** agreed that this is the draft to cite in minimal?
    > Action: **Xavi** to cite draft-thubert-6lo-rpl-nhc-02 in next revision
    of draft-ietf-6tisch-minimal. * **[Xavi]** what should
    draft-ietf-6tisch-minimal contain in terms of security? * **Pascal** I do
    not see the need to say anything, RPL has its own security, any security
    that applies to other protocols apply to minimal. * **Michael** similarly,
    there must be L2 security, which we just inherit.
* _[08.57]_ presentation draft-richardson-6tisch--security-6top-02 **[Michael]**
    * Missing text for security pieces in 6top
        * join controller provides a certificate for the node (500 bytes), node
        may issue a cert request. * OR (red line at the bottom) 802.15.9 key
        exchange, per peer keying using group key. Large shared secret like 32
        bytes. Are they mutually exclusive?
    * security pieces for the 6top model. What do we need to configure
    specifically? * the join controller provides the certificate. * the
    security for the DTLS connection needs to be able to identify the used
    certificate and its location. * the certificate will be used by p2p
    exchange. Also there can be a group key shared by all nodes. > Action:
    **Michael** to publish a revision of the security draft with a clear text
    describing the needs in terms of data representation elements so the 6top
    data model can be updated. * With a PCE each node needs to have a secure
    relation with the PCE. * with P2P negotiation and minimal where IEs are
    exchanged, security is more complex as requires to secure this relation. *
    **Ariton** 15.4e includes several security fields that have a particular
    meaning. Would those fields have a different meaning when used in the
    context of 6TiSCH? What would be the impact of using or not using the MAC
    header. * **Thomas** the fields have the same meaning. What 6tisch defines
    is a key management protocol so certificates can be exchanged. This is a
    complement to the architecture and later the use of this security
    certificates is fully aligned with 15.4e std. > Action: **Ariton** to
    send a mail to the ML asking clarification about whether IEEE802.15.4e
    fields have a different meaning when used in the context of 6TiSCH.
* _[09.11]_ RPL option status and update 6lo
    * Done at the previous minimal draft discussion.
* RFC7322: RFC Style Guide
    * No time. Pushed to later call.
* _[09.13]_ Meeting ends
    * Next 6TiSCH call on 11/7, purpose is to go through material for IETF91 WG
