Re: [802SEC] URGENT - Action needed on IEEE Internet Initiative

Hi Bob,


Sorry for sending this late. I hope it is still helpful:


-          IEEE 802 and IETF collaborating on Internet privacy

o   Since 2014, IEEE 802 and IETF have been collaborating to make the Internet more secure and protect users against criminal, commercial or national entities performing illegal or privacy-unfriendly practices.

o   With new technologies showing up (e.g. IoT, wearables, etc.), users will become more prone to privacy attacks. Privacy concerns are therefore more and more relevant when defining new technologies and regulations to protect users of these new technologies.

-          IEEE 802 Privacy EC SG (now 802E)

o   IEEE 802 project looking at Privacy concerns applicable to Internet protocols, specifically at Link Layer, and providing suggestions on how IEEE can help addressing them.

o   The SG work has resulted in the creation of the 802E project (privacy recommendations), and it will also affect the work in the recent 802c project (local address usage).

o   Besides, new groups are starting to take privacy recommendations into account for defining requirements of new wireless technologies (e.g. 802.11az Next Generation Positioning).

Subject: [802SEC] URGENT - Action needed on IEEE Internet Initiative
Importance: High


Greetings all-

I have been invited to speak on a panel at a luncheon on Capital Hill, Friday, Sept 25,as part of the IEEE Internet Initiative. The full participant list is

  • Karen Bartleson, moderator
  • Geoff Mulligan
  • Oleg Logvinov
  • Bob Heile
  • Richard Bennett

The invite that went out to staffers was:

The Internet is not a single thing. It is a complex web of devices, programs, institutions, rules, and people that are being utilized in innovative and totally unexpected ways every day. Net neutrality rules place demands on the Internet that will affect different parts of this complex system uniquely. Congress needs to understand the impact these new rules could have on applications including telemedicine, real-time applications, connected vehicles, and the Internet of Things in general.

Join IEEE and the IEEE-USA, whose members helped create the Internet and many of the rules that allow it to function, for a discussion about emerging technologies and how they fit into Internet regulations.

We just had an organizational call today. The tentative agenda is:

  • 12-12:05        Introduction of topic and panelists-Karen
  • 12:05-12:15     IEEE IoT Initiative-Geoff
  • 12:15-12:25     IEEE P2413-Oleg
  • 12:25-12:35     IEEE 802 IoT activities -Bob
  • 12:35-12:45     Why this subject matters to Congress-Richard
  • 12:45-12:55     Q&A-All (Karen moderating)
  • 12:55           Wrap-up and thank you-Karen

Slides need to be in by next Weds morning ET.

What I need is a listing of what is going on in each of the 802 WGs that you think is relevant to the topic.  Please put that in the form of bullet points of activities with a BRIEF description. 10 minutes is not a lot of time. I will need this no later than the close of business Monday, Sept 21 eastern time.  I will go with what I have at that time.  Wish I could have given more lead time, but I just got off the organizational call 5 minutes ago.
