The Chair presented the Opening Agenda slides available at http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/minutes/2017-03-opening-plenary-slides.pdf.

 

During this presentation, the Chair:

  • Showed the agenda on slide 2, which was tacitly approved.
  • Showed slides 3 through 8 (reproducing slides 0 through 4 of the IEEE-SA PatCom Patent Slides for Standards Development Meetings, separately available at http://standards.ieee.org/about/sasb/patcom/materials.html).
    The Chair:

    • Presented information on these slides, which included:
      • Instructions for the WG Chair (and TG Chairs);
      • Participants, Patents and Duty to Inform;
      • Patent Related Links;
      • Call for Potentially Essential Patents; and
      • Other Guidelines for IEEE WG Meetings.
    • Advised WG attendees that:
      • The IEEE’s patent policy is described in Clause 6 of the IEEE-SA Standards Board Bylaws;
      • Early identification of patent claims which may be essential for the use of standards under development is strongly encouraged;
      • There may be Essential Patent Claims of which the IEEE is not aware. Additionally, neither the 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.
    • Reminded the 802.1 TG Chairs of their daily obligations (per slide 8) with respect to presenting the IEEE-SA PatCom Patent Slides for Standards Development Meetings and making the “Call for Potentially Essential Patents”.
  • Reviewed general administrative information including:
  • Introduced 802.1 Officers and provided 802.1 website information (slide 14).
  • Reviewed the list of 802.1 voting members, including information about individuals who have lost, may lose or may gain 802.1 voting membership, and reminded individual participants of their duties to vote as instructed in 802.1 ballots and to record their attendance to the meeting via IMAT to enable accurate maintenance of 802.1 voting membership (slides 15-19). The Chair indicated he would remind of their obligations to return letter ballots 25 current voters who have not met these obligations and are therefore at risk of losing voting member status (slide 20). The Chair reminded individual participants about 802.11 reciprocal credit, which was continued at this meeting (slide 21).
  • Introduced ongoing updates to the 802.1 website scheduled to go live after the July 2017 plenary meeting (slide 22).
  • Reviewed the schedule for future interim meetings (slide 23), which included:

 

 

  • Reported the following items out of the 802 EC executive session (slide 24):

      • a side program will be arranged
    • 802 Task Force (EC-17-028)
      • Indemnification
      • Tools
      • 11 dominance allegation
        • Report to IEEE-SASB to be approved this week

        • Projected 2017 budget – $200k loss
      • Provided a list of 802 EC meetings to be held this week (slide 25).
      • Provided information about Public Review (slide 26) and indicated which email ballots (ePoll) were conducted since the last plenary (slide 27) stressing one of them did not pass by lack of quorum.
        • It was clarified that the motion on IEEE 1588 was only applicable to current drafts at time of liaison letter approval. There was a request to make further drafts available on an ongoing basis. The 802.1 Chair noted he could indicate to IEEE 1588 that this is 802.1’s desire but clarified there is no automated way for drafts to be made available on an ongoing basis.
      • Pointed out PARs and CSDs that are up for vote at this meeting (slide 28). The Chair noted 802.1 has to comment on the PARs of other WGs (by end of 13 March 2017) if 802.1 thinks they are relevant to its work. The Chair asked whether there was interest in 802.1 to review any of these; no interest was expressed.
      • Introduced an 802.1 Industry Connections Activity Initiation Document (ICAID – slide 29)
      • Introduced the open discussion and tutorial to be held 13 March 2017 6:30 PM-8:50 PM (slide 30).

      • Asked editors of the projects listed at the bottom of slide 38 to nominate future Standards Project Awards recipients (slide 38).
      • Provided TG Chairs with guidance regarding the preparation of the motions for this week’s closing plenary meeting, and requested to be provided with EC required supporting material (PAR to NesCom, drafts to Sponsor ballot, drafts to RevCom) before these motions are considered (slide 39).
      • Showed the 802.1 plenary schedule/agenda for this meeting, which was tacitly approved (slide 40).
      • Requested the 802.1 TG Chairs to introduce their TG agenda (slide 41):

There were no responses to the calls prior to the end of the week’s session.

 

Mick Seaman proposed the following agenda (as discussed in the 802.1 opening plenary, detail with document links: http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2017/security-seaman-agenda-0317-v0.pdf) for the Security Task Group meeting week:

  1. 1AE-Rev (MAC Security) PAR (roll-up)
  2. 1Xck (Port-Based Network Access Control: YANG Data Model)
  3. 1AR-Rev (Secure Device Identity)
  4. P802E Privacy (Recommended Practice for Privacy Considerations for IEEE 802 Technologies)
  5. JTC1 SC6 SC participation
  6. O.B
    • Security in the car
  7. Further meetings/teleconferences

This agenda was approved.

 

Minutes of the discussion of each of the agenda items (above) in the Security Task Group, follow.

 

  1. 1AE-Rev (MAC Security) PAR (roll-up)

The Task Group had previously generated a PAR, prior to final SASB approval of IEEE Std 802.1AEcg. The TG chair updated this PAR with new anticipated end dates: http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2017/ae-seaman-rev-draft-par-0317-v02.pdf

Forwarding of this PAR to NesCom was approved by the closing 802.1 plenary, but the PAR was not updated in time for consideration by the Executive Committee at this meeting. It will be submitted to them prior to the July 2017 802.1 plenary meeting. This should not delay the project since publication of P802.1AEcg and the subsequent roll-up of IEEE Std 802.1AE-2006, IEEE Std 802.1AEbn-2011, IEEE Std 802.1AEbw-2013 and P802.1AEcg has to occur to establish the base text, prior to the incorporation of any maintenance items.

 

  1. 1Xck (Port-Based Network Access Control: YANG Data Model)

Marc Holness, P802.1Xck editor, had proposed a disposition of comments received in the WG ballot on P802.1Xck/D1.0 that had been reviewed/resolved in the TG teleconference held 21 February 2017: http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/ck-drafts/d1/802-1Xck-d1-0-dis-v01.pdf

The ballot had failed due to lack of response, of those voting Yes (8) or No (3) approval was 73%.

Marc Holness had generated a new draft prior to the meeting http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/ck-drafts/d1/802-1Xck-d1-1.pdf, taking into account D1.0 comments, none of which were extensive in scope. In the Monday afternoon meeting, Marc Holness proposed that the TG review a document he had created to show the use of the YANG model in some of the example scenarios contained in Clause 7 of IEEE Std 802.1X and Clause 11 of IEEE Std 802.1AE. These were discussed, and some improvements suggested including detailing the use of defaults (explanation of what needed to be configured, and what did not). The final suggestion was that this material be added to P802.1Xck as a new informative annex to help users of the model: the editor agreed to do that.

 

  1. 1AR-Rev (Secure Device Identity)

P802.1AR-Rev/D2.0 is in WG ballot, to close 30 March 2017. For detailed history see the editor’s introduction to the current draft:
http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/ar-rev-drafts/d2/802-1AR-rev-d2-0.pdf

Tom Laffey is working on an update of the Trusted Computing Group document covering the TPM/DevID module relationship. There was a brief discussion of the use of multiple LDevIDs to support the different types of TPM key/key usage.

Other points covered included the recent attacks on SHA-1 published by Google. P802.1AR-Rev no longer has the exceptional/underspecified operations, e.g. opaque mode, to support operations that were becoming outdated at the time of the original IEEE Std 802.1AR-2009. These few technical changes had been characterized as ‘cockroach removal’, a philosophy welcomed by the TG. A question was asked about SHA-1 in EST (enrollment): some participants said they didn’t believe SHA-1 was used/referenced.

A point was raised about the ASN.1 definition of keys in clause 9, in particular the definition in 9.2.4 of the ECDSA key as ECPoint ::= OCTET STRING while the key was usually a bit string. The relevant text was carried over from IEEE Std 802.1AR-2009. The reference to RFC 5480 seems too brief to be useful/clear. A similar issue arises in 9.3.4, and possibly also in 9.1.4. Brian Weis agreed to provide a suggestion for clarifying text. This (or any other suggestion) could come in as a ballot comment.

 

  1. P802E (Recommended Practice for Privacy Considerations for IEEE 802 Technologies)

Jerome Henry, P802E editor, was unable to attend this meeting but had been working on an update taking into account the discussion at the January 2017 interim meeting.

[Post meeting note: The new draft is now available at:

http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/802-e-drafts/d0/802E-d0-07.pdf]

 

  1. JTC1 SC6 SC participation

Karen Randall had drafted detailed responses for the issues raised by SC6 NB (National Body) comments on IEEE Std 802.1Qbu-2016 and IEEE Std 802.1Qbv-2016. These responses were discussed in the Maintenance TG (Tuesday morning) and in the SC. The SC discussed the wider issue of responding to China NB comments (see minutes of the meeting). The IEEE Std 802.1Qbu-2016 and IEEE Std 802.1Qbv-2016 responses were approved by the 802.1 closing plenary.

 

  1. O.B.
    • 1 networks in the car

There was a fruitful discussion on the use of 802.1 networks in the car, with Michael Potts providing information on the requirements and challenges, and Nancy Cam-Winget information on the various IETF activities that can use 802.1AR DevIDs to identify/authenticate/authorize components. Mick Seaman agreed to write up an approach that allowed both the authenticity of components and the location of their attachment to the car network to be verified.

 

  1. Future meeting/teleconference planning

Teleconferences were scheduled for 19 April 2017 and 2 May 2017.
[Post meeting note: details for WebEx/teleconference dial in/draft agenda have been distributed to the 802.1 email exploder.]

The Security TG will discuss the ongoing projects during the May 2017 interim meeting in Stuttgart, Germany. The TG chair would start the process of engaging the 802.1 TSN TG during that meeting.

 

Motions

Motions reflecting Security Task Group conclusions were prepared for the 802.1 closing plenary and can be found in their final form following slide 60 in http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/minutes/2017-03-closing-plenary-slides.pdf.

3.5    Time-Sensitive Networking

The Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) Task Group Chair, János Farkas presided. Craig Gunther wrote the minutes.
