I’m on my way back from the RIPE74 meeting in Budapest. It was a great event: quite a few nice technical talks in the plenary, productive working group meetings and some really good hallway discussions.
Big thanks to the RIPE NCC team for the smooth organization and for taking care of us!
Here’s some stuff I found particularly interesting:
- Andrew Alston’s take on “Anti-Shutdown Policies” (slides and video incl. extensive mic discussion)
- Philip & Maximilian from Freifunk Rheinland on their efforts (slides, video)
- Friso Feenstra on “That’s Why Rabobank Implemented IPv6” (slides, video) plus some insight into their address planning (slides, video)
- BCOP work on “IPv6 Prefix Assignments/Prefix Delegation” and “IPv6 Assignments for Hosting Providers“
- Jerry Lundström‘s DNS Replay Tool (slides, video, code)
- Jan Žorž (supported by Sander Steffann) on NAT64 testing (slides, video, code)
These were my own contributions:
- the slightly controversial talk on “Why IPv6 Security Is So Hard – Structural Deficits of IPv6 & Their Implications” (slides, video < I was told there will be another version soon incl. the full mic session)
- my talk in the IPv6 WG on IPv6 Address Selection (slides, video)
- the panel on “IPv6 in the Enterprise” which I participated in (video)
The Internet Society has published summaries of the individual days:
Everybody have a great weekend and safe travels! to those of you who’re still in lovely Budapest
