This document defines the ChaCha20 stream cipher as well as the use
of the Poly1305 authenticator, both as stand-alone algorithms and as
a "combined mode", or Authenticated Encryption with Associated Data
(AEAD) algorithm.

This document does not introduce any new crypto, but is meant to
serve as a stable reference and an implementation guide.  It is a

Applied Networking Research Prize 2015 presentations at IETF-93

Hi,

we are extremely pleased to report that for the 2015 award period of
the Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP), 33 eligible nominations
were received. Each submission was reviewed by 3-5 members of the
selection committee according to a diverse set of criteria, including
scientific excellence and substance, timeliness, relevance, and
potential impact on the Internet.

Based on this review, five submissions are awarded an Applied
Networking Research Prize in 2015. Two prize winners will present
their work at the IRTF Open Meeting during IETF-93 in Prague,
Czech Republic. The ANRPs for IETF-93 go to:

*** Haya Shulman *** for analyzing the deficiencies of DNS privacy
approaches:

ACM SIGCOMM 2015 Call for Industrial demos

I don't normally forward CFPs, but since the IETF wants to attract more academics, and SIGCOMM wants to
attract more industry, this seems of interest.

--

ACM SIGCOMM 2015 Call for Industrial demos
http://conferences.sigcomm.org/sigcomm/2015/cfid.php

The industrial demo session at SIGCOMM 2014 in Chicago had a great turnout and
positive feedback, so it returns for SIGCOMM 2015. The industrial demo session
showcases demos from industry in the area of networking, networked systems, and
networked applications. The objective of this session is to bring together
industry and academia around demos of innovative and cutting-edge networking
products.

Why present industrial demos at SIGCOMM?

SIGCOMM is the flagship annual conference of the ACM Special Interest Group on
Data Communication (SIGCOMM) on the applications, technologies, architectures,
and protocols for computer communication. The conference is single-track and
features a high-quality technical program with significant opportunities for
technical and social interactions. SIGCOMM is the premier conference in its
field and typically attracts over 600 attendees (scientists, engineers,
educators, and students). An industrial demo is an opportunity for companies to
show industrial leadership. Presenting edge industrial technology will attract
top academics to work on problems that are relevant to industry and help push
forward the frontier of industrial knowledge. The industrial demo session is
also a great recruiting opportunity. SIGCOMM attracts students from the most
