Dear All,

WG-I is a working group of the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization)
Communications Panel and is concerned with the standardization of ATNIPS for
safety-critical IPv6 communications in aviation. The necessary data
communication protocols and services are defined in Doc 9896 - Manual on the
Aeronautical Network (ATN) using Internet Protocol Suite (IPS) Standards and
Protocols. For the realization of the mobility and multilink functionality, Doc
9896 Edition 3 proposes a solution that uses LISP as the base technology. Such
base technologies must be mature and should be based on IP standards. This
results in the following standardization request: The ICAO WG-I requests the
IETF to complete the standardization for the LISP control and data plane draft
protocols (draft-ietf-lisp-rfc6830bis and draft-ietf-lisp-rfc6833bis) by the
third quarter of 2022 so that the corresponding RFC standards can be referenced
in Edition 3 of the ICAO Doc 9896.

If you need any further information please contact the undersigned.

Thank you,

Yours sincerely,

Raza Gulam
Secretary, Data Communications Infrastructure
Specific Working Group of the Communications Panel
