In the context of the ASON Control Plane work, Q14 is starting work on
the operations and procedures required during Control plane
initialisation, reconfiguration and recovery (G.7716).
These procedures require that authentication and general security
issues are properly addressed, and we therefore ask your advice with
respect to state of the art techniques that are available to us to
progress our work.
The action deadline that we are requesting will make your response
available in time for our next interim meeting in June. If you are
unable to respond in time for that meeting, we still look forward to a
response some time in the future. Our next meeting after June will
start on October 30th, 2006.
