Talk 1: RFC8981 – Temporary Address Extensions for Stateless Address Autoconfiguration in IPv6

This newly published RFC describes an extension to IPv6 Stateless Address Autoconfiguration, which causes hosts to generate temporary addresses with randomised interface identifiers. Changing addresses over time limits the window of time during which eavesdroppers may perform address-based network-activity correlation. Additionally, it reduces the window of exposure for a host being accessible via the same address over a period of time.

Presenter: Fernando Gont (SI6 Networks)

Talk 2: L2TP 101: On-Ramp to Consuming Wholesale Broadband Services

Marek will talk about Faelix’s experiences setting up and operating wholesale broadband interconnects (with ICUK and Zen), discussing the technical implementation details of the interconnects, and some of the RADIUS and L2TP tricks they’ve had to implement along the way.

Presenter: Marek Isalski (Faelix)

Talk 3: Dark Halo: How a new class of cloud cyber attack is reshaping security


After Talks: Networking for Networkers

Stay in the meeting room and have a free-for-all chit-chat about whatever is on your mind. This is a bring-your-on drinks and nibbles session.
