This document specifies the preferred method for transporting Delay-
and Disruption-Tolerant Networking (DTN) protocol data over the
Internet using datagrams.  It covers convergence layers for the
Bundle Protocol (RFC 5050), as well as the transportation of segments
using the Licklider Transmission Protocol (LTP) (RFC 5326).  UDP and
the Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP) are the candidate
datagram protocols discussed.  UDP can only be used on a local

The DTNRG Research Group has defined the experimental Licklider
Transmission Protocol (LTP) and the Compressed Bundle Header Encoding
(CBHE) mechanism for the InterPlanetary Network ('ipn' URI scheme).
Moreover, RFC 5050 defines values for the Bundle Protocol
administrative record type.  All of these fields are subject to a
registry.  For the purpose of its research work, the group has
created ad hoc registries.  As the specifications are stable and have
multiple interoperable implementations, the group would like to hand

Applied Networking Research Prize 2014 presentation s at IETF-89

Hi,

we are extremely pleased to report that for the 2014 award period
of the Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP), 46 eligible
nominations were received. Each submission was reviewed by four
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, six submissions were awarded an Applied
Networking Research Prize for 2014. The first two prize winners
will present their work at IETF-89 in London, UK. The ANRP awards
for IETF-89 go to:

*** Kenny Paterson *** for finding and documenting new attacks
against TLS and DTLS:

    N. J. Al Fardan and K. G. Paterson. Lucky Thirteen: Breaking
    the TLS and DTLS Record Protocols. Proc. IEEE Symposium on
    Security and Privacy, pp. 526-540, San Francisco, CA, USA,
    May 2013.

*** Keith Winstein *** for designing a transport protocol for
interactive applications that desire high throughput and low delay:

    Keith Winstein, Anirudh Sivaraman, and Hari Balakrishnan

IRTF Scalable Active Multicast Research Group (SAMRG) is closing down

Hi,

as announced by the RG chairs, the IRTF's Scalable Active Multicast Research Group (SAMRG) has decided to
close down, following the publication of their final two RFCs. The SAMRG mailing list will also close.

I'd like to thank the SAMRG participants - and especially the chairs - for all their efforts over the years!

Group communication services exist in a large variety of flavors and
technical implementations at different protocol layers.  Multicast
data distribution is most efficiently performed on the lowest
available layer, but a heterogeneous deployment status of multicast
technologies throughout the Internet requires an adaptive service
binding at runtime.  Today, it is difficult to write an application
that runs everywhere and at the same time makes use of the most
efficient multicast service available in the network.  Facing

New: Network Coding Research Group (NWCRG)

A new IRTF research group on Network Coding has been chartered:

  The objective of the Network Coding Research Group (NWCRG) is
  to research Network Coding principles and methods that can benefit
  Internet communication. One goal of the NWCRG is to gather the
  research results and posit the open questions related to Network
  Coding in order to develop practical applications of Network Coding
  that improve Internet communication. Another goal is to gather
  information on the existing practical implementations of Network
  Coding, distill common functionalities and propose a path to
  standardization of Network Coding-enabled communication.

The Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) is awarded for recent
results in applied networking research that are relevant for
transitioning into shipping Internet products and related
standardization efforts. Researchers with relevant, recent results
are encouraged to apply for this prize, which will offer them the
opportunity to present and discuss their work with the engineers,
network operators, policy makers and scientists that participate in
the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and its research arm, the
Internet Research Task Force (IRTF). Third-party nominations for this
prize are also encouraged. The goal of the Applied Networking
Research Prize is to recognize the best new ideas in networking, and
bring them to the IETF and IRTF especially in cases where they would
not otherwise see much exposure or discussion.

The Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) consists of:
