Day two of RIPE 76 drew to a close with 849 attendees registered and 620 checked in at the end of the day. As the good weather made a steady comeback, attendees flocked to four plenary sessions taking place through the day.
Tuesday’s Programme Highlights
- A very successful Women in Tech Lunch (sponsored by Netflix and Akamai) with a packed room and three fantastic presentations
- Several talks exploring challenges in BGP, one looking at a new BGP monitoring tool developed by Hurricane Electric and another showing what different stakeholders in the BGP ecosystem can do to improve the security of BGP
- Geoff Huston’s (APNIC) experiments in TCP and the scalability of BBR, calling for more research and testing in the face of important unsolved problems and unknowns
- Louis Plissonneau from Facebook on Total TCP Loss detection (TTLd) and Richard Sheehan, also from Facebook, on the rewards and roadblocks for building commodity-based networks
- Aaron Glenn promoting the promise of programmable packet processing with P4 – where P4 stands for programming independent packet process
- Jacky Hammer testing out RFC 6980 implementations on different operating systems
- Lightning talks ending with a very Shakespearean guide to network maintenance from Jen Linkova
The day ended with a BoF for operators and the IETF. See you tomorrow morning for the first working group sessions – Address Policy and DNS!
