The Priority Queue returns to the IETF 99 conference to explore projects and standards being worked on within the IETF.
How do you get devices such as light bulbs and sensors join a network securely, make sure they’ve joined the right network, and that the network can be sure the device is what it claims?
That’s the general thrust of today’s episode, which looks at the ANIMA (Autonomic Networking Integrated Model and Approach) Working Group.
This working group aims to “…develop a system of autonomic functions that carry out the intentions of the network operator without the need for detailed low-level management of individual devices.”
Greg’s guest is Michael Richardson, an IETF member and Managing Editor at the Centre for Research and Experimental Development in Informatics Libre (CREDIL) in Canada.
Thanks to Huawei, which covered travel and accommodations to enable the Packet Pushers to attend IETF 99 and record some shows to spread the news about IETF projects and initiatives.
