2. Retreat Planning

The IAB reviewed the agenda for their 2022 retreat.

Cullen Jennings suggested moving topics that would benefit from more informal discussion to Thursday, so that the discussions can continue over dinner.

Mirja Kühlewind asked IAB members to each provide a slide about what they think is the most important thing the IAB should be doing over the next year.

Mirja Kühlewind and Lars Eggert will update the retreat agenda.

3. RSWG Chair Appointment Update Checkin

The extended nomination period for the RSWG Chair appointment ended 2022-05-03. Cindy Morgan will send out a message soliciting community feedback on the candidates.

The IAB agreed that it would be desirable to hold joint interviews with the IESG, assuming the IESG is amenable to that plan. Mirja Kühlewind has added an item to the IESG’s 2022-05-05 agenda to discuss that.

Wes Hardaker, Deborah Brungard, and Qin Wu will interview the RSWG candidates for the IAB. Wes Hardaker will start a document with interview questions.

Cindy Morgan will send out a poll to schedule the interviews.

4. Proposed IAB Workshop on in-network support for troubleshooting and security (ISTS)

The IAB reviewed a draft workshop proposal from Mirja Kühlewind and Tommy Pauly on in-network support for troubleshooting and security (ISTS).

Several people were interested in holding a workshop on this topic, but agreed that the scope needs to be well-defined. Cullen Jennings said that the question is not about whether to encrypt or not, but about what to do when you do encrypt. Mallory Knodel agreed, adding that it could be about how to ease the tensions that come with the tradeoffs involved with encryption.

Mirja Kühlewind will update the workshop proposal and bring it back to the IAB for further discussion at the retreat.

5. Next IAB Meeting

The next IAB Meeting will be on 2022-05-11 at 0700 PDT.
