The IETF TRILL Protocol

Donald Eastlake, Huawei Technologies

This tutorial will give an overview of how TRILL works, its features, standardization and deployment status. The IETF TRILL protocol provides modern routing including multi-pathing of unicast and multi-destination traffic, to Layer 2 traffic, improving utilisation, robustness, and scaling. It supports VLANs, frame priorities and provides 16 million tenant labels. TRILL can be incrementally deployed, reducing spanning tree to whatever islands of bridging remain in the TRILL network.

Managing IPv4 Scarcity When Using SSL Certificates – Multiple SSL Certificates on a Single IP Address

Paul van Brouwershaven, GlobalSign

In this tutorial, you learn how you can combine two existing technologies to enable multiple certificates on a single IP address without legacy issues and improve performance.

Today, every digital certificate used to provide a SSL connection on a webserver needs a dedicated IP address. While this is a great driver for the adoption of IPv6, it is not solving the problem we face today. The Server Name Indication (SNI) extension for the TLS protocol which was developed in 2003 is still not supported by all browser/operating system combinations and will exclude about 10 to 15% of the visitors.

Creating and Analysing RIPE Atlas Measurements

Stéphane Bortzmeyer, AFNIC

This hands-on tutorial will cover RIPE Atlas’ UDM (User-Defined Mesurements), what you can do with them (ping, traceroute, DNS), how to run them through the Web interface but specially through the API, and the analysis of the results. The programming language used will be Python. Attendees are expected to come with a laptop (OS not important but you will need a modern Web browser and Python) and a RIPE NCC Access account. The tutorial is focused to network engineers and requires the ability to write simple programs in Python (or to translate the examples in real-time from Python to their preferred language).
