        URL:        http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc6236.txt

This document proposes a new generic session setup attribute to make
it possible to negotiate different image attributes such as image
size.  A possible use case is to make it possible for a %low-end %hand-
held terminal to display video without the need to rescale the image,
something that may consume large amounts of memory and processing
power.  The document also helps to maintain an optimal bitrate for
video as only the image size that is desired by the receiver is
transmitted.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories. This draft is a work item

	Title           : Use Cases and Requirements for SIP-based Media Recording (SIPREC)
	Author(s)       : Ken Rehor
                          Leon Portman

   Session recording is a critical requirement in many business
   communications environments such as call centers and financial
   trading floors.  In some of these environments, all calls must be
   recorded for regulatory and compliance reasons.  In others, calls may
   be recorded for quality control or business analytics.

   Recording is typically performed by sending a copy of the session
   media to the recording devices.  This document specifies requirements
   for extensions to SIP that will manage delivery of RTP media to a
   recording device.  This is being referred to as SIP-based Media
   Recording.

I-D Action: draft-ietf-softwire-gateway-init-ds-lite-04.txt

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

	Title           : Gateway Initiated Dual-Stack Lite Deployment
	Author(s)       : Frank Brockners
                          Sri Gundavelli

	Date            : 2011-06-01

   Gateway-Initiated Dual-Stack lite (GI-DS-lite) is a variant of Dual-
   Stack lite (DS-lite) applicable to certain tunnel-based access
   architectures.  GI-DS-lite extends existing access tunnels beyond the
   access gateway to an IPv4-IPv4 NAT using softwires with an embedded
   context identifier that uniquely identifies the end-system the
   tunneled packets belong to.  The access gateway determines which
   portion of the traffic requires NAT using local policies and sends/
   receives this portion to/from this softwire.

I-D Action: draft-ietf-tsvwg-natsupp-01.txt

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

	Title           : Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) Network Address Translation Support
	Author(s)       : Randall R. Stewart
                          Michael Tuexen

	Pages           : 11
	Date            : 2011-06-01

   Stream Control Transmission Protocol [RFC4960] provides a reliable
   communications channel between two end-hosts in many ways similar to
   TCP [RFC0793].  With the widespread deployment of Network Address
   Translators (NAT), specialized code has been added to NAT for TCP
   that allows multiple hosts to reside behind a NAT and yet use only a
   single globally unique IPv4 address, even when two hosts (behind a
   NAT) choose the same port numbers for their connection.  This
   additional code is sometimes classified as Network Address and Port
   Translation or NAPT.  To date, specialized code for SCTP has NOT yet
   been added to most NATs so that only pure NAT is available.  The end
   result of this is that only one SCTP capable host can be behind a
   NAT.

   This document describes an SCTP specific chunks and procedures to
   help NAT&#39;s provide similar features of NAPT in the single point and
   multi-point traversal scenario.

I-D Action: draft-ietf-xcon-common-data-model-29.txt

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories. This draft is a work item
of the Centralized Conferencing Working Group of the IETF.

	Title           : Conference Information Data Model for Centralized Conferencing (XCON)
	Author(s)       : Oscar Novo
                          Gonzalo Camarillo

	Pages           : 96
	Date            : 2011-06-01

   RFC5239 defines the idea of a centralized conferencing (XCON) as an
   association of participants with a central focus.  The state of a
   conference is represented by a conference object.  This document
   defines an Extensible Markup Language (XML)-based conference
   information data model to be used for conference objects.  A
   conference information data model is designed to convey information
   about the conference and about participation in the conference.  The
   conference information data model defined in this document
   constitutes an extension of the data format specified in the Session
   Initiation Protocol (SIP) Event Package for Conference State.

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.

	Title           : SDP Local Identifier
	Author(s)       : Mischa Schmidt

	Date            : 2011-06-01

   Dynamic Policy Controllers like resource and admission control
   systems need to be able to locate media receivers in each segment of
   the network to determine the path of the media flows prior to
   allowing or rejecting the session setup.  This is fine as long as
   this is handled within an operator&#39;s network but limited when
   extending this to home network.  Current definitions of SDP are not
   clear about conveying a local identifier (e.g., a private IP address)
   of the client that is destined to receive media streams after
   successful SDP negotiation.  In this draft we outline the need for
   carrying such information over SDP and discuss a set of possible
   solutions in a scenario with a home network and a operator network
   domain.

Last Call: <draft-ietf-ipfix-psamp-mib-03.txt> (Definitions of Managed Objects for Packet Sampling) to Proposed Standard


The IESG has received a request from the IP Flow Information Export WG
(ipfix) to consider the following document:
- 'Definitions of Managed Objects for Packet Sampling'
  <draft-ietf-ipfix-psamp-mib-03.txt> as a Proposed Standard

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
ietf <at> ietf.org mailing lists by 2011-06-15. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to iesg <at> ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.

Abstract

This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
In particular, it describes extensions to the IPFIX MIB module
[RFC5815].  For IPFIX implementations that use packet Sampling
(PSAMP) techniques as described in [RFC5475], this memo defines the
PSAMP MIB module containing managed objects for providing information
on applied packet selection functions and their parameters.

I-D Action: draft-george-ipv6-required-02.txt

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.

	Title           : IPv6 Support Required for all IP-capable nodes

   Given the global lack of available IPv4 space, and limitations in
   IPv4 extension and transition technologies, this document deprecates
   the concept that an IP-capable node MAY support IPv4 _only_, and
   redefines an IP-capable node as one which supports either IPv6 _only_
   or IPv4/IPv6 dual-stack.  This document updates RFC1812, 1122 and
   4084 to reflect the change in requirements.
