Subject: W3C/IAB workshop on Strengthening the Internet Against
Pervasive Monitoring (STRINT) (Call for Participation)

Dear Advisory Committee Representatives and Chairs,

W3C and the Internet Architecture Board are pleased to announce:

   W3C/IAB workshop on
   Strengthening the Internet Against Pervasive Monitoring (STRINT)
   Feb 28 & Mar 1 2014
   Central London, UK

The Vancouver IETF plenary concluded that pervasive monitoring represents
an attack on the Internet, and the IETF has begun to carry out various of
the more obvious actions [1] required to try to handle this attack.
However, there are additional much more complex questions arising that
need further consideration before any additional concrete plans can be

The W3C and IAB will therefore host a workshop on the topic of
"Strengthening the Internet Against Pervasive Monitoring" before IETF-89
in London in March 2014, with support from the EU FP7 STREWS [2] project.
The event will be co-located with the 89th IETF Conference that will take
place from 02 - 07 March at the Hilton Metropole in central London (UK).

Pervasive monitoring targets protocol data that we also need for network
manageability and security. This data is captured and correlated with
other data. There is an open problem as to how to enhance protocols so as
to maintain network manageability and security but still limit data
capture and correlation.

The overall goal of the workshop is to steer W3C and IETF work so as to be
able to improve or "strengthen" the Internet in the face of pervasive
monitoring. A workshop report in the form of an IAB RFC will be produced
after the event.

Learn more about topics, dates for position papers, how to participate on
the Workshop site:

We welcome position papers by 15 January 2014.

The workshop will be by invitation only. Those wishing to attend should
submit a position paper or Internet-Draft.  All inputs submitted and
considered relevant will be published on the workshop web page. The
organisers (STREWS project participants, IAB and W3C staff) will decide
whom to invite based on the submissions received.

If you have any questions, please contact Rigo Wenning <rigo at w3.org
