Dear all and Michael,

I am piggybacking on Michael's last mail on the IoT BCOP document. We 
have been discussing this topic for a while and we need to go further.

Last time, we discussed there was a brief consensus for this subject 
within RIPE Scope : "/Best Current Operational Practice (BCOP) document 
in RIPE scope for proactively mitigating IoT attacks/". If there is an 
alternative opinion, *please express*.

There were proposals from Eliot and others, that we should begin with an 
*outline*. The initial outline was as follows:

-------

The threat
     Some background on device capabilities and limitations
     Who can do what to improve the situation?
         Devices
         CPE gear
         Upstreams
         IoT Manufacturers
         Consumers (let's not ask much)

-------

The functionality for controlling the home network traffic would 
typically include:

     Insight in all the devices connected to the home network.
     Possibility to block traffic.
     End-user friendly GUI and traffic management possibility.
     Option to have the traffic management outsourced (e.g. to an ISP).
     Blocking of compromised IoT devices.
-------

We could have discussion on the following points:

1. Outline

2. Volunteers (who wish to contribute)

3. Champions (who will lead the work) - We could limit the number of 
Champions

4. A deadline

These are my two cents. Please feel free with your feedback/contributions.

Sandoche.

Dear all,

The mail below has been intended for the Volunteers who have volunteered 
during RIPE 79 to write the BCOP. Jim is championing this document and 
if any of you would like to contribute, please contact Jim.

Sandoche.
