[802SEC] +++ IEEE 802 BALLOT: Split the 802.11 PARs

Issue Date: 9Apr2001Closing Date: 23Apri2001
Moved By: Stuart Kerry  Seconded By: Bob Heile
Move: Approve Split of 802.11e PARs into 802.11e and 802.11i.

At the Thursday SEC meeting, we made the following motion:
Motion to conduct a 14 day SEC email ballot to decide whether to:
forward 802.11e PAR to NesCom
forward 802.11i PAR to NesCom
forward covering letter regarding 802.11e and 802.11i to NesCom. 15
8/0/2 Approved

The two PARs and Five Criterion are attached below.

Reason For PAR Split:
The IEEE 802.11 Task Group e PAR covers two broad items, enhancements to
802.11 security and enhancements to 802.11 Quality of Service (QOS).
Therefore, it is proposed to split this effort into: 802.11e Enhancements to
IEEE 802.11 Quality of Service and 802.11i Enhancements to IEEE 802.11
Security. This will allow the work to progress independently and get done at
an increased schedule. The increased schedule is needed based on market
needs for improved security. The market need arrived from publicized
weakness to the currently defined security, defined in 802.11.
