      • There may be Essential Patent Claims of which IEEE is not aware. Additionally, neither IEEE, the WG, nor the WG Chair can ensure the accuracy or completeness of any assurance or whether any such assurance is, in fact, of a Patent Claim that is essential for the use of the standard under development.
    • Made the “Call for Potentially Essential Patents” thereby providing an opportunity for participants to identify patent claim(s)/patent application claim(s) and/or the holder of patent claim(s)/patent application claim(s) of which the participant is personally aware and that may be essential for the use of that standard.
      • There were no responses to the call.

P802.1X-Rev Port-Based Network Access Control, D1.4 forward to [Standards Association] Ballot

Mick Seaman, P802.1X-Rev editor, reported that the WG recirculation ballot on http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/x-rev-drafts/d1/802-1X-rev-d1-4.pdf had closed with no outstanding Disapprove votes and no further comments.

Disposition: 802.1 permission to proceed to Standards Association Ballot would be requested on the 802 EC consent agenda and in the 802.1 closing plenary. There would be no additional work in this meeting. Disposition recorded in http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/x-rev-drafts/d1/802-1X-rev-d1-4-dis.pdf.

Disposition: 802.1 permission for the editor, Mick Seaman, to prepare drafts for and conduct WG balloting would be requested in the 802.1 closing plenary. There would be no further work on this project at this session.

3:10 – 3:40 PM recess

MACsec Privacy Protection (formerly Traffic flow privacy)

Don Fedyk presented IEEE P802.1AE Yang Instance Document http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2019/dk-fedyk-ieee802-dot1ae-instance-discussion-0719-v00.pdf.

  • On the working assumption that management for the proposed MACsec Privacy Protection 802.1AE amendment project would be based on YANG, rather than on SNMP MIBs, a base MACsec YANG model is required. The presentation discussed the relationship between that 802.1AE model and the 802.1X model. The ‘bubble diagrams’ in 802.1X/802.1Xck subclause 14.4.4 were found useful in the discussion.

Disposition: Updated presentation incorporating the resolution of some of the questions asked in the original: http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2019/dk-fedyk-ieee802-dot1ae-instance-discussion-0719-v01.pdf.

Don Fedyk presented his use of YUMA (YANG-Based Unified Modular Automation) to instantiate MACsec with the 802.1Xck YANG models, using dk-fedyk-ieee802-dot1ae-types-0719-v00.yang http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2019/df-fedyk-ieee802-dot1ae-types-yang-0719-v00.pdf, dk-fedyk-ieee802-dot1ae-0719-v00.tree http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2019/dk-fedyk-ieee802-dot1ae-tree-0719-v00.pdf, df-fedyk-ieee802-dot1ae-0719-v00.yang http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2019/dk-fedyk-ieee802-dot1ae-yang-0719-v00.pdf.

Disposition: The use of YUMA to instantiate models and reveal any issues resulting from their combination would be socialized in 802.1, and in the YANGsters group in particular. The discussion had clarified the relationship of MACsec SecYs to underlying interfaces (a single SecY per underlying (Common Port) interface, instantiating virtual interfaces if necessary to preserve that relationship).

Continued later.

5:05 PM recess

Tuesday 16 July 2019

10:30 AM call to order by the TG Chair, 12:10 – 1:40 PM and 3:10 – 3:50 PM recesses

  • The ballot passed with a single Disapprove vote.

Disposition: Continued later.

Max Riegel presented 802e-riegel-privacy-threat-model-0719-v1 http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2019/802e-riegel-privacy-threat-model-0719-v1.pdf.

Disposition: Presentation discussed.

Jerome Henry, P802E editor, led the resolution of comments received on http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/802-e-drafts/d1/802E-d1-4.pdf using the MyBallot comment tool.

Disposition: All the comments were reviewed. Proposed disposition recorded in http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/802-e-drafts/d1/802E-d1-4-pdis3-final.pdf.

The meeting agreed (none dissenting) to hold a teleconference to review the final disposition of comments and the resulting changes to the draft, prior to a WG recirculation ballot. A WG recirculation ballot would be held in time to allow for a further WG recirculation ballot if necessary prior to the November 2019 802.1 plenary session, with the intention of requesting permission to proceed to Standards Association ballot at that meeting. An updated draft P802E/D1.5 http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/802-e-drafts/d1/802E-d1-5.pdf shows the changes corresponding to the recorded proposed disposition of comments.

The TG chair reported that the P802E PAR would expire in December 2019, before the project could complete. A PAR extension would be requested.

The YANGsters Chair presented the IEEE-SA PatCom Patent Slides for Standards Development Meetings https://development.standards.ieee.org/myproject/Public/mytools/mob/slideset.pdf, the IEEE

802 Participation slide https://mentor.ieee.org/802-ec/dcn/17/ec-17-0093-05-0PNP-ieee-

802-participation-slide-ppt.ppt, and made the “Call for Potentially Essential Patents”. There were no responses to the call prior to the end of the meeting.

The YANGsters Chair presented the agenda slides in YANGster Meeting #23 IEEE 802 Plenary Vienna http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2019/yangsters-smansfield-meeting-23-agenda-0719r2.pdf.

Disposition: The agenda on slide 2 of the agenda slides was reviewed, discussed and approved.

The YANGsters Chair presented an overview of current IEEE YANG Work per slide 3 of the agenda slides and showed the YANG modules currently existing on the GitHub repository as well as the current structure that is used there.

  • It was pointed out that all YANG files that are touched by a project need to be in the respective subdirectory of the project.

Disposition: The table on slide 3 of the agenda slides needs to be updated to include the ieee802-dot1qats.yang module located in the .1Qcr directory.

The YANGsters Chair gave a YANG Catalog GitHub update and showed the YANG Catalog Structure Implemented currently in the catalog (slide 4 of the agenda slides).

Disposition: None.

The YANGsters Chair gave an overview of Git Commands and Git Terms that are useful and should be used by editors working with YANG and the GitHub repository (slides 5-6 of the agenda slides).

Disposition: Several sets of commands for working with GitHub were provided and will be made available on the YANGsters page on the 802.1 website. Add scripts to the YANGsters wiki.

The YANGsters Chair gave an update on the YANG Catalog Meta-Data, providing an overview of the different pieces of metadata along with information on how the metadata should be filled in (slide 7 of the agenda slides). Relevant pieces of metadata are: reference, author-email, document-name, module-classification and maturity-level.

Disposition: Opinions related to more granular maturity-level values may be discussed on the 802.1 mailing list.

The YANGsters Chair started a discussion on Diagraming Conventions that are suggested to be used in UML diagrams drawn for use in 802.1 projects (slides 8-9 of the agenda slides).

Disposition: The meeting agreed (none dissenting) that 802.1 projects should use a consistent way of drawing UML diagrams.

The YANGsters Chair summarized information about the IETF EtherTypes YANG module that currently contains a sentence indicating that the module is intended to be used “till such time as the IEEE takes up the task of publication of the model that defines those EtherTypes” (slides 10-11 of the agenda slides).

  • Based on ongoing discussion and as a solution to the problem that no IEEE EtherTypes YANG module currently exists, a suggestion was made to start an 802.1 PAR for an 802.1 EtherTypes YANG module.

Disposition: The meeting suggested starting the PAR as soon as possible and agreed (none dissenting) to have a motion at the 802.1 closing plenary for 802.1 to authorize the September 2019 Interim to generate PAR and CSD for precirculation to LMSC for a standard specifying an IEEE YANG data model for EtherTypes.

The YANGsters Chair gave a brief overview of Upcoming YANGsters Calls and showed the corresponding draft MOTION for the 802.1 closing plenary (slides 12-13 of the agenda slides).

Disposition: The meeting agreed (none dissenting) to submit the motion for 802.1 closing plenary approval.

Any Other Business

Don Fedyk gave an overview of Yuma123 http://yuma123.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page, an open source tool for running and verifying YANG modules that provides a command line interface to run commands on these modules.

  • To create tables and so on, the corresponding commands have to be entered. It was suggested to script this for regular commands for ease of use.
  • Currently the tool can only display read-write objects because it lacks the means to fill read- only objects with values. It can correctly use conditional objects.
  • It was suggested that it would be helpful to provide a virtual machine image containing Yuma123 and other useful YANG tools like pyang to make it easier for people working with YANG to use them.

Disposition: The tool seems very useful for people working with YANG. It would be a good idea to put up corresponding information on the 802.1 YANGsters webpage.
