Protocol Action: 'DNSSEC NSEC RDATA Format' to Proposed Standard

The IESG has approved the following document:

- 'DNSSEC NSEC RDATA Format '
   <draft-ietf-dnsext-nsec-rdata-06.txt> as a Proposed Standard

This document is the product of the DNS Extensions Working Group. 

The IESG contact persons are Thomas Narten and Margaret Wasserman.

Technical Summary

The NSEC RR is based on the NXT RR as described in RFC 2535, and is
similar except for the name and typecode. The RDATA format for the NXT
RR has the limitation in that the RDATA could only carry information
about the existence of the first 127 types. RFC 2535 did reserve a bit
to specify an extension mechanism, but the mechanism was never
actually defined.

In order to avoid the need to develop an extension mechanism into a
deployed base of DNSSEC aware servers and resolvers once the first 127
type codes are allocated, this document redefines the wire format of
the "Type Bit Map" field in the NSEC RDATA to cover the full RR type
space.  The new format of the type bitmap is easy to implement, can
cover the full range of type codes, is economical in the common case
and has a maximum encoding size of approximately 8.5 kilobytes.
Efficient searching of the type bitmap for presence of a type had a
lower priority.

Document Action: 'State Machines for Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) Peer and Authenticator' to Informational RFC

The IESG has approved the following document:

- 'State Machines for Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) Peer and 
   Authenticator '
   <draft-ietf-eap-statemachine-03.txt> as an Informational RFC

This document is the product of the Extensible Authentication Protocol 
Working Group. 

The IESG contact persons are Margaret Wasserman and Thomas Narten.

Technical Summary

   This document describes a set of state machines for EAP peer, EAP
   standalone authenticator (non-pass-through), EAP backend
   authenticator (for use on Authentication, Authorization and
   Accounting (AAA) servers), and EAP full authenticator (for both local
   and pass-through). This set of state machines shows how EAP can be
   implemented to support deployment in either a peer/AP or peer/AP/AAA
   Server environment. The peer and standalone authenticator machines
   are illustrative of how the EAP protocol defined in
   [I-D.ietf-eap-rfc2284bis]  may be implemented.  The backend and full/
   pass-through authenticators illustrate how EAP/AAA protocol support
   defined in [RFC3579] may be implemented. Where there are differences
   [I-D.ietf-eap-rfc2284bis]/[RFC3579] are authoritative.

   This document describes a state machine based on an EAP "Switch"
   model. This model includes  events and actions for the interaction
   between the EAP Switch and EAP methods. A brief description of the
   EAP "Switch" model is given in the Introduction section.

Protocol Action: 'The Session Inititation Protocol (SIP) 'Join' Header' to Proposed Standard

The IESG has approved the following document:

- 'The Session Inititation Protocol (SIP) 'Join' Header '
   <draft-ietf-sip-join-03.txt> as a Proposed Standard

This document is the product of the Session Initiation Protocol Working Group.

The IESG contact persons are Allison Mankin and Jon Peterson.

Technical Summary

   This document defines a new header for use with SIP multi-party
   applications and call control. The Join header is used to logically
   join an existing SIP dialog with a new SIP dialog.   This primitive can
   be used to enable services such as answering machine style
   Message-Screening.  The document includes non-normative 
   examples to describe the services.

  The extension specified in this document significantly changes the
   relative security of SIP devices.  Currently in SIP, even if an
   eavesdropper learns the Call-ID, To, and From headers of a dialog,
   they cannot easily modify or destroy that dialog if Digest
   authentication or end-to-end message integrity are used.

   This extension can be used to insert or monitor potentially sensitive
   content in a multimedia conversation.  As such, invitations with the
   Join header MUST only be accepted if the peer requesting replacement
   has been properly authenticated using a standard SIP mechanism
   (Digest or S/MIME), and authorized to be joined with the target
   dialog.  (All SIP implementations are already required to support

I-D ACTION:draft-ietf-avt-rtp-vmr-wb-00.txt

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Audio/Video Transport Working Group of the IETF.

	Title		: Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP) Payload and File 
			  Storage Formats for the Variable-Rate Multimode 
			  Wideband (VMR-WB) Audio Codec
	Author(s)	: S.Ahmadi
	Filename	: draft-ietf-avt-rtp-vmr-wb-00.txt
	Pages		: 32
	Date		: 2004-6-1
	
   This document specifies a real-time transport protocol (RTP)
   payload format to be used for the Variable-Rate Multimode
   Wideband (VMR-WB) speech codec. The payload format is
   designed to be able to interoperate with existing VMR-WB
   transport formats on non-IP networks. In addition, a file
   format is specified for transport of VMR-WB speech data in
   storage mode applications such as email. A MIME type
   registration is included, for VMR-WB, specifying use of
   both the RTP payload and the storage formats

   VMR-WB is a variable-rate multimode wideband speech codec
   that has a number of operating modes, one of which is 
   interoperable with AMR-WB (i.e., RFC 3267) audio codec at
   certain rates. Therefore, provisions have been made in
   this draft to facilitate and simplify data packet exchange
   between VMR-WB and AMR-WB in the interoperable mode with no
   transcoding function involved.
