Encryption and Network Management


The Managing Radio Networks in an Encrypted World (MaRNEW) workshop is starting today. This is a joint workshop between the IAB and the GSMA, and the focus will be on managing networks, particularly mobile ones, under the assumption that much of Internet traffic is or will be encrypted. This complicates a number of network management operations, such as traffic prioritisation. What can be done to ensure that these important operations can be done as efficiently as possible?

I am excited to wait for the discussions and new ideas coming out of this workshop. The workshop chairs Natasha Rooney and Joe Hildebrand will be writing a blog article after the workshop to report their initial impressions, and later on the IAB will be publishing official transcripts and reports.
