Pekka, what is the status/progress/timeframe for
being published ?
I'm putting (hopefully) the last touches on draft-ietf-opsec-filter-caps.
It cites your draft.
I'm open to input about that; I haven't actively pursued publishing it
as an RFC. I'll re-cap the draft at RTGWG meeting on Friday morning,
though I don't think RTGWG is the right place to adopt it as its
mostly about OPS rathar than RTG. The best choice would probably be
an AD-sponsored individual submission if it were to be published,
given that I suspect OPSEC WG shouldn't be taking on new documents at
this phase of its lifecycle.
So, I'm open to thoughts about this. I suspect ADs might also be
interested in seeing public comments wrt the usefulness (or lack
thereof) of this work, so that they could more easily decide whether
there is a consistituency publishing the document would be serving.
This document's fate is probably also loosely tied to
draft-ietf-opsec-infrastructure-security as the goals seem to be at
least somewhat overlapping. Both are also similar in the sense that
they don't present operational security requirements in the manner
that the rest of the OPSEC documents are doing. (FWIW, I personally
don't agree with the current direction
draft-ietf-opsec-infrastructure-security seems to be taking so that
part of OPSEC work may or may not also take a while yet.)
That said, I wouldn't put it in as a normative reference due to these
uncertainties; informative doesn't require RFC publication so that
should probably be OK (process-wise at least) in any case.
