Tuesday 12 November 2019

8:02 AM call to order by the TG Chair

At the beginning of the meeting the TG Chair presented the IEEE-SA Copyright Policy slides https://standards.ieee.org/content/dam/ieee-standards/standards/web/documents/other/copyright-policy-WG-meetings.potx, and 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 TG Chair:

Disposition: Details for discussion on all new items were logged in the IEEE 802.1 Maintenance database at https://www.802-1.org/home where items progressed at the meeting can be reviewed by selecting ‘Meetings’.

Disposition: The WG Chair requested the Maintenance TG Chair to produce liaison responses and attach the response documents. Motions were added to the EC consent agenda to forward those liaison responses. The liaison responses, including the response documents, were finalized as Liaison Statement to ITU-T SG15 OTNT http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2019/liaison-response-SG15-OTNT-1119-v01.pdf and Liaison Statement to ITU-T JCA IMT-2020 http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2019/liaison-ITU-T-JCA-IMT-2020-1119-v01.pdf.

Karen Randall presented ISO/IEC JTC1 SC6 Status in http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2019/maint-congdon-session-1119-v01.pdf.

Disposition: None.

James Glib led a discussion on P802.1ACct https://1.ieee802.org/maintenance/802-1acct/.

Disposition: James Glib, P802.1ACct editor, has created an initial draft of the amendment. A link to the draft was not available but the editor will work with the TG Chair to put the draft into the relevant locations on the 802.1 repository and launch an initial Task Group ballot.

Roger Marks presented Clarifying EPD and LPD http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2019/maint-Marks-Finn-epd-lpd-1119-copyright.pdf.

Disposition: The scope of changes required to clarify the EPD and LPD confusion is likely beyond what can be covered by a maintenance item(s). There may be some small bugs that can be fixed in IEEE Std 802, IEEE Std 802.1AC, IEEE Std 802.1Q and/or IEEE Std 802.11 as forthcoming maintenance items, but to completely satisfy a clarification to the confusion, revision or amendment projects may be needed.

Future meetings/teleconferences

The TG intends to hold teleconferences on Tuesday January 14, 2020 and Tuesday March 10, 2020 at 8:00 AM Pacific, unless cancelled prior to the call.

The TG meets face-to-face next at the January 2020 interim session.

MAC Privacy protection

The TG Chair led a discussion of frame packing, individual frame fragmentation and reassembly aimed at increasing mutual understanding of the problem space.

Don Fedyk presented Frame Format for IEEE 802.1AEdk MACsec Privacy http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2019/dk-fedyk-dot1aedk-dataformat-discussion-1105-v01.pdf.

  • Discussion started.
  • 3:10 – 3:35 PM recess
  • Discussion continued. Noted: some advantage to the modified proposal (slide 9, more fragments per frame); attempt to reduce impact on QoS; detailed description of transmission (packing, fragmentation) and reception (unpacking, reassembly) processes beyond implicit (not always clear) indications in format required to assess benefits; not a lot of enthusiasm for alternative (slide 11); is to use terminology that requires development (slide 13), ‘tunnel’ already overused, MSDU already used as MAC Service Data Unit in 802.1, ‘chunk’ seems a promising term (at least in informal discussion) for an entire packet or the fragment of a packet contained in a ‘superframe’ (MAC Privacy PDU – MPPDU –, there may be a better informal term).

Disposition: Continued later.

4:50 PM recess

Tuesday 12 November 2019

10:30 AM call to order by the TG Chair

P802E Privacy D1.6 Working Group recirculation ballot resolution

Jerome Henry, P802E Editor, led a discussion of the proposed disposition http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/802-e-drafts/d1/802E-d1-6-pdis2.pdf of comments received on http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/802-e-drafts/d1/802E-d1-6.pdf, continuing the October 30, 2019 teleconference discussion.

  • 11:40 AM: in the temporary absence of the TG Chair, Karen Randall presided.

Disposition: The meeting agreed (informally, none dissenting) to proceed to SA (sponsor) ballot. Final disposition recorded in http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/private/802-e-drafts/d1/802E-d1-6-dis.pdf.
[On Friday November 15, 2019, the EC approved progression to SA ballot]

MAC Privacy protection

Don Fedyk led a continuation of Monday afternoon’s discussion.

Disposition: Further discussion needed. A full survey of options and any preliminary decisions would be undertaken after PAR approval.

A.O.B: MKA Key Server changes

The TG chair led a brief discussion of a potential modification to the 802.1X MKA CP state machine conditions (802.1X subclause 12.4). The desire, raised in discussion in past meetings, was to minimize disruption in a group CA when a higher-priority Key Server takes over (particularly when that Key Server system has been restored following a failure). A difficulty is distinguishing that case from a group merge where some signaling to upper layers via controlledPortEnabled = FALSE (thus blipping MAC_Operational) is desirable to avoid the instant creation of a hard loop. It may be possible to limit the duration of the disruption by changing the RETIRE.chgdConnect transition to CHANGE to require a newSAK to already have been distributed if the only reason for that transition is a change in Key Server. Assuming all existing CA participants receive the newSAK transmission, that would allow each to rapidly transition CHANGE-SECURED-RECEIVING-READY-TRANSMIT-TRANSMITTING with no external dependencies thus reducing the MAC_Operational blip for each participant to the minimum required by that participant for internal protocol stack communication.

Disposition: Further discussion needed. Formal presentation and analysis required.

A.O.B: MKA scaling and new environments

The TG chair led a brief discussion of comments on other aspects of MKA, arising from the prior discussion. While the introduction of multiple SCs per SecY was intended to address the need for strict replay/order protection for preemption (two SCs required) or common service provider service level distinctions (two or three SCs required) it had led to a demand for the support of eight SCs per SecY, with a very large number of SecYs per system and hence a requirement for many MKA instances and a high processing load for MKA ICV generation and verification. Some reduction in this load was desired. Separately the use of MACsec on high delay (extra-terrestrial) links was noted, with some desire for timeout value adjustment.

Disposition: Further study needed. Formal input required.

5:25 PM recess

Wednesday 13 November 2019

10:35 AM call to order by the TG Chair

MAC Privacy protection

The TG chair led the resolution of comments received from 802.3, 802.11, and IEEE Staff on the draft PAR http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2019/dk-security-mac-privacy-PAR-0919-v02.pdf for P802.1AEdk. No comments were received on the draft CSD http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2019/dk-security-mac-privacy-CSD-0919-v00.pdf for P802.1AEdk.

Disposition: Comments and responses discussed and recorded in P802.1AEdk Media Access Control (MAC) Security Amendment 4 : MAC Privacy protection http://www.ieee802.org/1/files/public/docs2019/dk-PAR-CSD-comments-1119-v00.pdf.

[On Friday November 15, 2019, the EC approved submission of the PAR to NesCom.]

11.40 AM: in the temporary absence of the TG Chair, Karen Randall presided.

Disposition: Further discussion needed.

Future meetings/teleconferences

Agreed (informally, none dissenting) to hold teleconferences for progression of work as identified during this session and to address TG matters arising, subject to the usual required notice. P802E SA initial ballot processing will be addressed by teleconference, with further SA recirculation ballots as necessary.

The TG will meet during the January 2020 interim session.

Disposition: Responses to the comments on the P802f PAR and CSD from 802.3 and 802.11 will be worded according to the discussions of this YANGsters meeting. The P802f PAR needs to reflect and highlight that a close interaction of 802.1 and the RAC is needed for the project.

The acting YANGsters Chair provided an overview on the topic of Units in IEEE 802.1 YANG modules. Currently there is no unified way defined in 802.1 to describe units in YANG modules. A list needs to be provided to editors that would give information and guidance on units and should be used in 802.1 YANG modules. This should be generated in coordination with IEEE editorial staff.

Disposition: YANGsters will provide information in the YANGsters guidelines on how to express units and what unit names are to be used.

The acting YANGsters Chair provided a Meta Data Update. When a YANG module is put into the “published” branch the following information has to be provided:

  • maturity level
  • document name
  • reference
  • module classification

Disposition: The proper metadata will be added once the document has been published. This will be done in coordination with Mark Ellison and Scott Mansfield.

The acting YANGsters Chair postponed the Discussion on Constraint Checking to the next teleconference by lack of time.

Disposition: None.

The acting YANGsters Chair presented a draft motion requesting new teleconferences. The motion text was updated to reflect the earlier decision to hold teleconferences weekly instead of monthly for the time being.

Disposition: Updated motion reviewed for 802.1 closing plenary approval.

Any Other Business

The discussion on the topic of an open maintenance item related to YANG was postponed to one of the next YANGsters teleconferences by lack of time.
