Preliminary Agenda IRTF Open Meeting @ IETF-91 Honolulu, HI, USA TUESDAY, November 11, 2014 0900-1130 HST Tuesday Morning Session I State of the IRTF Lars Eggert 10 min Applied Networking Prize (ANRP) Award Talks 45 min each *** Sharon Goldberg *** for discussing threats when BGP RPKI authorities are faulty, misconfigured, compromised, or compelled to misbehave: Danny Cooper, Ethan Heilman, Kyle Brogle, Leonid Reyzin and Sharon Goldberg. On the Risk of Misbehaving RPKI Authorities. Proc. ACM Workshop on Hot Topics in Networks (HotNets-XII), College Park, MD, USA, November 2013. The RPKI (RFC 6480) is a new security infrastructure that relies on trusted authorities to prevent attacks on interdomain routing. The standard threat model for the RPKI supposes that authorities are trusted and routing is under attack. This talk discusses risks that arise when this threat model is flipped: when RPKI authorities are faulty, misconfigured, compromised, or compelled (e.g. by governments) to take certain actions. We also survey mechanisms that can increase transparency when RPKI authorities misbehave. *** Misbah Uddin *** for developing matching and ranking for network search queries to make operational data available in real-time to management applications: Misbah Uddin, Rolf Stadler and Alexander Clemm. Scalable Matching and Ranking for Network Search. Proc. International Conference on Network and Service Management (CNSM), Zürich, Switzerland, October 2013. Network search makes configuration and operational information in networked systems available to management applications in real-time through a uniform interface. It requires an efficient, decentralised search algorithm running in a plane of search nodes inside the networked system. At this point in our work, we have demonstrated the technical feasibility and scalability of network search. *** Tobias Flach *** for the design of novel loss recovery mechanisms for TCP that minimize timeout-driven recovery: Tobias Flach, Nandita Dukkipati, Andreas Terzis, Barath Raghavan, Neal Cardwell, Yuchung Cheng, Ankur Jain, Shuai Hao, Ethan Katz-Bassett, Ramesh Govindan. Reducing Web Latency: the Virtue of Gentle Aggression. Proc. ACM SIGCOMM, Hong Kong, China, August 2013. In this talk I am discussing a large-scale measurement study inside Google's production network analyzing how TCP's loss recovery mechanisms affect Web latency. This motivates the design of new mechanisms to detect and handle losses quicker, and I will quantify how they have a positive impact on Web performance.
