Many new protocols are being worked on at the IETF. Some are RFCs already; others will soon gain that status. These include: TLS1.3, DNS over HTTPs, and HTTP/2, and QUIC. A fundamental premise that all of these protocols share is that metadata may be misused. So, more and more of the packet is being encrypted. How will this impact diagnostics and troubleshooting? If many of the protocol headers themselves are encrypted, how will we get information on performance? Deep packet inspection is currently used by IDS / IPS, fraud detection and other security tools at enterprises.
These new protocols require a transition for enterprise network management. This session will discuss the nature of the problem and potential solutions for government and industry.
