Presented by: Pat Thaler, Juan-Carlos Zuniga

Day: Sunday, July 17, 2016
Time: 15:00-16:00
Room: Charlottenburg II/III

Description: Description: The IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee develops and maintains networking standards and recommended practices for local, metropolitan, and other area networks. The scope of the IEEE 802 project includes Wired/Wireless LAN (Local Area Networks, like Ethernet and Wi-Fi), Wireless PAN (Personal Area Networks), Wireless MAN (Metropolitan Area Network), Wireless Coexistence, Media Independent Handover Services, and Wireless RAN (Regional Access Network).

This tutorial focuses on some emerging efforts in IEEE 802.1 on IEEE 802 Privacy and Addressing, which encompass multiple medium access technologies.

- Privacy (IEEE P802E)
The IEEE P802E project works on recommended practices for protocol developers to mitigate privacy threats, identified by a specified privacy threat model. The presentation will include a debrief about the Wi-Fi Privacy experiments carried out at the IEEE 802 and IETF meetings.

- MAC Addressing (IEEE P802c and P802.1CQ)
IEEE 802 MAC addressing will be covered including the Global and Local address spaces, as well as work underway on Local MAC address usage and on distribution of Local MAC addresses and Multicast MAC addresses.
