3       Opening Plenary Meeting

Call to order: 6 November 2017, 10:30 AM.

 

The 802.1 Chair, Glenn Parsons, presided.

The 802.1 Recording Secretary, Jessy Rouyer, wrote the minutes.

 

The Chair presented the Opening Agenda slides available at http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/minutes/2017-11-opening-plenary-slides.pdf.

 

During this presentation, the Chair:

  • Showed the agenda on slide 2 stressing that IEEE 802.1 is using as a trial a new format for this meeting. The agenda was 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 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:
    • Meeting “Decorum” or rules, including the policies on public reporting, and on photography or recording (slide 9);

Wednesday 8 November 2017 8:30 AM-12:30PM 4:00PM-6:00 PM

Call to order: 8 November 2017, 8:30 AM

The agenda for each day was reviewed and approved as follows:

  1. Wed AM1 & AM2
    1. Convene at 8:30 AM
    2. Administration: Agenda approval, Patent & affiliation slides, secretary
    3. 1Qcn comment resolution – Paul Bottorff

    2. Simulation Analysis of Congestion Isolation – Kevin Shen
    3. Discussion of project creation for Congestion Isolation – Paul Congdon
    4. 1Qcn next steps

Paul Bottorff, P802.1Qcn editor, led the resolution of comments received on http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/cn-drafts/d1/802-1qcn-d1-0.pdf.

  • Ballot passed and a WG recirculation will be the next step with conditional approval to go to Sponsor ballot.
  • For a WG recirculation ballot, all the background text that was kept in place to help the IETF review needs to be removed.
  • Lots of discussion around using should for TLV parameters that aren’t valid for NV03.
  • PICs rogue comment was added.

Disposition: Ballot comment resolution recorded in http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/cn-drafts/d1/802-1Qcn-d1-0-dis-v02.pdf

 

Paul Congdon led a review of Congestion Isolation Design team material (http://ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2017/new-dcb-congdon-congestion-isolation-1117-v01.pdf)

Disposition: Continued in a later session.

Roger Marks led the review of a draft of the outgoing liaison letter (https://mentor.ieee.org/802-ec/dcn/17/ec-17-0208-04-00EC-draft-response-to-wba-liaison.docx) prepared in response to the incoming liaison letter regarding IEEE Roaming OUI from Wireless Broadband Alliance (http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2017/liaison-WBA-Roaming-OUI-1017.pdf).

  • The incoming liaison letter was addressed to IEEE 802, 802.1 and 802.11, but the proposal was to have a single response from IEEE 802.
  • Address has some structure and still clarity about the format as described by Wi-Fi Alliance and 802.11.

Disposition: See slide 56 in

http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/minutes/2017-11-closing-plenary-slides.pdf

Roger Marks led a discussion of the Pre-Association Random Address proposal discussed in the 802.1 midweek plenary meeting.

  • Personal opinions were expressed on the 802.11 proposal in the meeting. No 802.1 position has been provided yet.
  • There does not appear to be much of an issue if the address is just used for discovery, but if one keeps the address for associated state, then the chance of collision is too high.

Disposition: More discussion needed.

 

 

Thursday 9 November 2017 8:30 AM-12:30 PM

Call to order: 9 November 2017, 8:30 AM

 

Paul Congdon presented Congestion Isolation – Design Team Update http://ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2017/new-dcb-congdon-congestion-isolation-1117-v01.pdf

Disposition: More discussion needed.

 

Kevin Shen presented Simulation Analysis of Congestion Isolation http://ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2017/new-dcb-shen-congestion-isolation-simulation-1117-v00.pdf

  • Switching delay should be included, not just link delay
  • Buffer size needs to be varied and the sensitivity needs to be understood. To be apples-to-apples, the amount of memory should be the same with or without Congestion Isolation (CI). Fix the memory and carve it up into traffic classes with and without CI. Then vary that and understand how much change there is.
  • Having Mice and Elephant separation in the simulation causes some concern because the CI proposal currently does not include three queues, but only two.
  • Using a flow table that looks at all flows is also a difference in how people might implement the solution. The CI proposal currently states congested flows would be identified by sampling; not looking at all flows on ingress.
  • It was good to see that using an ideal flow table algorithm did not make a big difference.
  • Likely to want a simulation that accurately models the current CI proposal.

Disposition: Action: two-queue model; no mice/elephant, memory sensitivity, depth of congested flow table, graph of queue depth over the course of the simulation or CDF of the queue depth. Consider ECN+CI without PFC (not lossless).

 

Paul Congdon presented Project for Improved Congestion Management http://ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2017/new-dcb-congdon-congestion-project-1117-v01.pdf

Disposition:

  • Updated motion will be provided
  • Agreed to schedule two calls before the January 2018 interim meeting; 12 December 2017, 5:00 PM Pacific, 9 Jan 2018, 5:00 PM Pacific

 

Paul Bottorff, P802.1Qcn editor, reviewed next steps for P802.1Qcn.

Disposition: Proposed schedule:

  • First WG recirculation starts on 28 November 2017, closes on 13 December 2017
  • Hold a call to process first WG recirculation on 2 January 2018, at 5:00 PM Pacific
  • Second WG recirculation starts on 5 January 2018, closes on 20 January 2018
  • Process second WG recirculation comments in the January 2018 interim meeting and proceed to Sponsor ballot

 

It was agreed a P802.1CQ informal group would discuss proposals (including Local MAC Address Protocol http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2017/cq-ao-LAAP-Proposal-1117-V1.pptx) offline.

  • Sue Leicht, National Security Agency [Wednesday AM]
  • James McIntosh [Tuesday AM, PM; Wednesday AM]
  • Glenn Parsons [Tuesday PM part]
  • Mick Seaman [Tuesday AM, PM; Wednesday AM]

 

Mick Seaman proposed the following agenda (based on presentation in the 802.1 opening plenary) for the Security Task Group meeting week:

  1. 1Xck (Port-Based Network Access Control – YANG Data Model)
    • Finalize D1.1 WG Ballot Resolution Tuesday following YANG, Tuesday pm 2
  2. 1AR-Rev (Secure Device Identity)
    • Initial Sponsor Ballot of D2.2 resolution continued. Wednesday am, Wednesday pm
  3. JTC1 SC6 SC participation Tuesday pm1
  4. O.B
  5. Further meetings/teleconferences

This agenda was approved at the start of Tuesday’s Security TG session.

 

Minutes of the discussions of these agenda items follow.

 

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

Marc Holness, P802.1Xck editor, reviewed the (non-final) disposition of comments received in the Working Group ballot on http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/ck-drafts/d1/802-1Xck-d1-1.pdf: http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/xck-drafts/d1/802-1Xck-d1-1-dis-v01.pdf

This disposition had been reviewed during the 25 October 2017 Security TG teleconference, the present review served as a final check. The review was facilitated by reference to interim draft 1.2: http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/xck-drafts/d1/802-1Xck-d1-2.pdf

The editor had updated subclause 14.4.2 “Relationship to the Interface Management YANG model” to address the issue underlying comment 6. The group welcomed the changes and reviewed the text in detail. A consistent approach to ifTypes for stacks that could be realized by either “explicit” interfaces (where a YANG interface represents a single shim or sublayer in an interface stack) or by “augmented” or “compressed” interfaces (where a single YANG interface is augmented, possibly multiple times, by attributes that allow it to represent stacked shims or sublayers) would require that the ifType represent the top-most shim/augmentation in the stack. This change of ifType cannot be carried out simply by the process of creating/enabling the augmentation, and in any case, that might raise difficulties when multiple augmentations of a single interface are applied (an individual augmentation model would not necessarily know the appropriate order of other yet to be defined augmentations). However, the manager of the interface could make the appropriate changes, and that would be noted in the text.

The results of the meeting’s review were captured in a final disposition of comments prepared by the editor (http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/xck-drafts/d1/802-1Xck-d1-1-dis-v02.pdf) and in a draft incorporating the corresponding changes for off-line editorial review (http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/xck-drafts/d1/802-1Xck-d1-3.pdf).

 

 

 

Mick Seaman took as an action item to initiate a Working Group recirculation ballot on draft 1.3 (or on an editorial update of that draft) by 22 November 2017 to close by 13 December 2017.

The Sponsor Ballot pool formation process has been initiated with the expectation that approval to proceed to Sponsor Ballot will be requested at the next 802 plenary meeting in March 2018.

 

  1. 1AR-Rev (Secure Device Identity)

The TG reviewed the proposed changes to Clause 9 “DevID signature suites” (http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/ar-rev-drafts/d2/802-1AR-rev-d2-4-clause-9.pdf) resulting from the consideration of comments 49 and 50 in the BRC teleconference held 1 November2017. The proposed revised text in interim draft 2.4 (http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/ar-rev-drafts/d2/802-1AR-rev-d2-4.pdf) was shown as were the strikeout/insert version (http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/ar-rev-drafts/d2/802-1AR-rev-d2-4-changes.pdf) and a markup of the “clean” text with some rationale for changes/organization (both for current information and for future reference should the TG  need to revisit the topic).

The TG was satisfied with the proposed changes. It was agreed to keep the explicit object identifiers (the possibility of their removal was raised in the markup of Clause 9).

Mick Seaman, P802.1AR-Rev editor, briefly reviewed the outstanding comments in http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/ar-rev-drafts/d2/802-1AR-rev-d2-2-sponsor-pdis1.pdf.

The responses to John Messenger’s comments i-71 through i-91 (submitted with a Disapprove vote) had been checked with him. The proposed response to William Byrd’s comment i-1 had been sent to the commenter in an email asking if the proposed response was clear, inviting the commenter to this meeting, and also asking if the TG had understood the comment correctly. The plan was for Brian Weis to run the responses to Russell Housley’s comments (submitted with a Disapprove vote) by the latter during the IETF meeting the following week. The one remaining comment submitted with a Disapprove vote was on a punctuation issue and no additional communication was believed to be necessary. Following this meeting’s discussion, and regarding the yet-to-be-addressed comments related to Russell Housley’s comments i-41 and i-42 through i-48 suggesting reorganization of Clause 8 to place the Extensions in a separate (sub)clause, it was agreed that, if it was practical to do this editorial change, it should be done.
