APPLICATIONS AND REAL-TIME AREA

NONE

GENERAL AREA

o IETF Administrative Support Activity 2.0 (IASA20)
  Responsible AD: Alissa Cooper

Alissa Cooper introduced the proposed BoF, noting that this continues the work
of previous BoF sessions. The ISOC legal team is expected to provide
information for the community discussion before IETF 101.

Mirja Kuehlewind asked if there was movement toward chartering a working group.

Alissa replied that she'd like to have the scope of the work narrowed down
before chartering; the information from the legal team should help with that.

Ted Hardie asked whether the group would still meet if the information from the
legal team arrived too late to have a useful discussion in London.

Alissa noted that she was in contact with the lawyers via email, and she
expects something for the community to discuss soon. She added that even if the
memo from the legal team was late, the BoF would still be useful.

The BoF was approved for IETF 101.

INTERNET AREA

o IP Issues and Associated Gaps in Fifth Generation Networks (ATICK)
  Responsible AD: Terry Manderson

Suresh Krishnan introduced the proposed BoF. He noted that this is the 5GANGIP
subject that has had numerous side meetings at the IETF in the past year. He
mentioned concerns that the scope was too broad, and that the proposal hasnÕt
improved enough. The mailing list for discussion is still 5GANGIP, not ATICK.

Spencer Dawkins noted that there had been a lot of interest at previous side
meetings, and wanted to know if that was still the case.

Suresh replied that the interest seemed to be waning; there were half the
number of people at the last side meeting than at the first.

Alissa Cooper asked about discussing better-scoped work with the proponents.

Suresh stated that he had a discussion about scoping the work for the IETF, but
hasnÕt seen any changes in the request. He asked Erik Nordmark and Jari Arkko
from the IAB if they would be willing to discuss narrowing the focus for the
IETF with the proponents.

Erik agreed to initiate a discussion.

Alissa requested Suresh relay the discuss points back to Terry Manderson.

The proposed BoF was not approved for IETF 101.

o Identifier Locator Addressing (ILA)
   Responsible AD: Suresh Krishnan

Suresh Krishnan introduced the proposed BoF. He mentioned ILA came out of a
datacenter, and the BoF is set to explore whether the idea can scale beyond a
datacenter. He noted that the protocol is not fully formed, and there is a lot
of work to be done. Suresh also noted that the idea has been in both the
Internet Area and Routing area. He thought a non-WG forming BoF would be
appropriate, but that it would need some careful handling.

Ted Hardie agreed that it would need strong chairs to keep focus on the work.

Jari Arkko mentioned there were two basic pieces of work, privacy and
scalability; one piece might be more suited for a research group.

Alia Atlas requested that the IDR WG be added to the conflict list. She was
unsure that this would be a widely-used solution to the problem.

Suresh answered that it wasnÕt certain the work could scale yet. It might be a
fit as a research group instead, but holding the BoF would help to answer that.

The BoF was approved for IETF 101.

OPERATIONS AND MANAGEMENT AREA

o Common Operations and Management on network Slices (COMS)
  Responsible AD: Benoit Claise

Benoit Claise introduced the proposed BoF. He mentioned this proposal came out
of the NETSLICING BoF held at IETF 99. The proponents are looking at developing
a top-down approach to the issue, which may be simplistic. Benoit noted that
the proposed BoF was not approved for IETF 100, and the proponents may not have
developed the idea any further than requested to get a BoF on the agenda.

Warren Kumari agreed with BenoitÕs assessment.

Eric Rescorla observed that the Area Directors did not seem enthusiastic about
the proposal. He asked what they wanted to do.

Benoit replied that the discussions would take place, either in a BoF or in
other working groups. He noted he would prefer to have the BoF, and be prepared
for a charter with a very narrow focus if the BoF goes well. Benoit added that
it would be good to take one use case and use a bottom-up approach in addition
to the top-down approach.

Jari Arkko added that a BoF might help define the bigger picture of what work
there is to be done, and that might help narrow the scope.

Benoit agreed that the scope is currently too broad. He doesnÕt expect this BoF
to be working group forming.

Jari warned that it might be difficult to secure agreement on an approach.

Benoit suggested the BoF take one use case as an experiment and work the
problem both bottom up and top down. He feared that using just one approach
would be too simplistic and would not work. Limiting the work to one use case
might narrow the scope enough.

Suresh agreed it might work.

Benoit added that the COMS proponents are working on a data model on network
slicing, network delay, and packet loss. He noted at some point they would need
to map the layer.

Ted Hardie asked why the work should be done in the IETF. He mentioned other
organizations where work like this was being developed already, and asked why
the proponents came to the IETF instead of going there.

Benoit agreed COMS might work better in another space, but it wasnÕt completely
clear at this point.

Warren added that part of the issue was he wasn't sure the proponents were all
talking about the same issues. He noted they seemed to be talking past each
other on the mailing list, using the same terms to mean different things. He
thought getting them all in a room together might clarify what they think they
are talking about, and that would be useful.

Ignas Bagdonas noted that he wasn't sure there would be sustained interest in
the subject, but that a non-WG forming BoF to see if the IETF is the right
place for the work would be useful.

Alissa Cooper summed up the discussion for approval.

Ignas noted that it would have to be a tightly guided BoF to develop the right
questions and move the discussion in a useful direction.

Ted noted that he thought the BoF would benefit from an IAB shepherd named
early; Jari Arkko volunteered.

The BoF was approved for IETF 101.
