Abfab at IETF 79

The ABFAB working group, which will be standardizing technologies that Moonshot depends on, had its first meeting at IETF 79 in Beijing, China. The meeting was quite productive. Because the meeting was the first of the working group, there were some introductory presentations. A group of authors are putting together a proposed architecture document; we presented the current state of our work. However things have evolved significantly since the working group meeting and I think it will make more sense to wait a couple of weeks to discuss the architecture document.

Most of the time was spent on two presentations. The first was the status of the GSS mechanism. We discussed issues that were discovered while implementing the EAP GSS-API mechanism. Discussion in the room tended to support the proposals made in the slides. A few issues will need to come to the list. We had the most interesting discussion of SAML AAA integration.

Minutes are available.
