This document describes multicast routing architectures that are
currently deployed on the Internet.  This document briefly describes
those protocols and references their specifications.

This memo also reclassifies several older RFCs to Historic.  These
RFCs describe multicast routing protocols that were never widely
deployed or have fallen into disuse.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.

This document defines algorithms for Authenticated Encryption with
Associated Data (AEAD), and defines a uniform interface and a
registry for such algorithms.  The interface and registry can be used
as an application-independent set of cryptoalgorithm suites.  This
approach provides advantages in efficiency and security, and promotes
the reuse of crypto implementations.  [STANDARDS TRACK]

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

Internet technical specifications often need to define a formal
syntax.  Over the years, a modified version of Backus-Naur Form
(BNF), called Augmented BNF (ABNF), has been popular among many
Internet specifications.  The current specification documents ABNF.
It balances compactness and simplicity with reasonable
representational power.  The differences between standard BNF and
ABNF involve naming rules, repetition, alternatives,

This document specifies the IP Flow Information Export (IPFIX)
protocol that serves for transmitting IP Traffic Flow information over
the network.  In order to transmit IP Traffic Flow information from an
Exporting Process to an information Collecting Process, a common
representation of flow data and a standard means of communicating them
is required.  This document describes how the IPFIX Data and Template
Records are carried over a number of transport protocols from an IPFIX
Exporting Process to an IPFIX Collecting Process.  [STANDARDS TRACK]

IT Transition

All IT services have been transitioned.  As previously reported,
please bear in mind that the AMS setup is not the same as the NSS
setup.  Some changes were necessary as part of the transition.  It
is possible there will be some issues that need attention as the
community begins to use the services in their new production
environment.

The good news is that all services, except jabber, are now available
on both IPv4 and IPv6.  This includes the web, ftp, email, and
rsync for those who mirror internet-drafts.

The status that you need to know is as follows.

1. Reminder, iab and iesg mailing lists have been moved to be in
   their respective domains.  This may affect your filtering but
   should not effect distribution.

2. As it turns out we did not move the irtf mailing lists into
   irtf.org.  In order to do this we need to be hosting the irtf.org
   web site for mailman to work properly.  Since this site is an
   independent site we have set this aside for now.

3. We have also noticed that GMail.com is blocking the IETF servers'
   email delivery.  They started this 5 minutes after email was
   enabled.  We have already filed the appropriate reports and hope
   for a resolution in 24-48 hours.  Please tell your friends on
   GMail.com that they are not getting IETF email.

4. Finally, site automation is not enabled at this time.  This means
   that "static" web pages or files that are automatically

WG Review: Cga & Send maIntenance (csi)

A new IETF working group has been proposed in the Internet Area.  
The IESG has not made any determination as yet.  The following 
draft charter was submitted, and is provided for informational 
purposes only.  Please send your comments to the IESG mailing 
list (iesg <at> ietf.org) by February 7, 2008.

Cga & Send maIntenance (csi)
============================
Current Status: Proposed Working Group

Chair(s):
TBD

Internet Area Area Director(s):
Jari Arkko <jari.arkko <at> piuha.net>
Mark Townsley <townsley <at> cisco.com>

Description:

Proposed charter for Cga & Send maIntenance (CSI) BOF

The Secure Neighbor Discovery (SEND) protocol defined by 
RFC 3971 provides security mechanisms protecting different 
functions of the Neighbor Discovery (ND) protocol defined 
by RFC 2461. This includes address resolution (discovering 
link layer address of another node attached to the link), 
router discovery (discovering routers attached to the link), 
and neighbor unreachability detection (detecting that a node 
attached to the link is no longer reachable). SEND protection 
of address resolution and neighbor unreachability detection
