In order to enable an iCal export link, your account needs to have a key created. This key enables other applications to access data from within Indico even when you are neither using nor logged into the Indico system yourself with the link provided. Once created, you can manage your key at any time by going to 'My Profile' and looking under the tab entitled 'HTTP API'. Further information about HTTP API keys can be found in the Indico documentation.
In conjunction with a having a key associated with your account, to have the possibility of exporting private event information necessitates the creation of a persistent key. This new key is also associated with your account and whilst it is active the data which can be obtained through using this key can be obtained by anyone in possession of the link provided. Due to this reason, it is extremely important that you keep links generated with this key private and for your use only. If you think someone else may have acquired access to a link using this key in the future, you must immediately remove it from 'My Profile' under the 'HTTP API' tab and generate a new key before regenerating iCalendar links.

Imprecise Network Monitoring Tools
Any problem can have multiple causes and a vital part of troubleshooting is to gather as much data as possible. Substantial data can be gleaned in regards to campus outages from social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook. This talk aims to briefly explain the benefits (and significant pitfalls) of crowdsourcing your network monitoring.

Datacentred Shared Compute and Storage Resource
DataCentred are building a large scale shared compute and storage resource for use by our collocation clients. The compute environment is based on Openstack, the open source cloud operating system, which enables very flexible and rapid deployment of virtual machines and networks. The storage system is based on Ceph, a distributed, and highly scalable open source object store, with automatic replication and recovery capabilities. We present a brief overview of these systems and other open source tools used for integration and management, and describe some potential use cases in a network operator environment.

Prescriptive Topology Daemon
Operator error is one of the biggest causes for network failure. In the data center, topologies based on CLOS tree and its variants, right cabling is a skilled and time consuming endeavor. PTMD is designed to take the pain and skill out of this task. PTMD runs on all routers/switches in the network (and can run on hosts too). It takes a graphviz-DOT specified network cabling plan (something many operators already generate) and couples it with with runtime information derived from LLDP to verify that the cabling matches the specification. This is done on every link transition. The talk is primarily targetted for system administrators. The audience will get to know: * design and implementation of PTMD * configuration examples * use cases and extensions.

Is SDN Delivering?
Software Defined Networking has been around for a while now. Most people are aware of the methodology of SDN but not necessarily what SDN was supposed to achieve and the benefits it is meant to offer? We look at what SDN is meant to achieve and where the market is today. Is SDN delivering on it’s promises?

IPv4/IPv6 Access Transition
Convener: Mr. Chris Russell (UKNOF)
IPv4 exhaustion / IPv6 adoption within UK access networks
With the exhaustion of ipv4, considerable focus has been placed upon how access networks look to scale their networks due to increasing subscriber levels. This panel aims to ascertain how UK access networks have approached introducing IPv6 within their networks. We consider the options and pitfalls of carrier grade NAT, migration to dual stack and specifically how IPv6 can be introduced at a consumer level.

Whatever happened to "rough consensus and running code"? Multistakeholder governance in .uk.
Nominet, the .uk domain name registry, has recently published proposals for sweeping changes. If adopted these will fundamentally alter both the structure of the .uk namespace, and the way that its registrars are accredited. The Internet community has traditionally followed a collaborative form of policy making, epitomised by David Clark's aphorism "We reject: kings, presidents and voting. We believe in: rough consensus and running code". Over time, this approach has become known as bottom-up, multistakeholder governance. The involvement of the full range of affected stakeholders lends legitimacy to the process, and to the relevant organisation. This presentation is a critical analysis of Nominet's policy development process, drawing on comparators from the Internet governance world. At the same time, it will ask whether it is realistic to expect full participation of stakeholders in .uk (or Internet) governance, especially in the increasingly competitive world of new Top Level Domains.

Simplifying Performance Assurance and Testing of Ethernet Services
With the increased adoption of Carrier Ethernet services for wholesale, business and mobile backhaul applications, intelligent service performance assurance and testing becomes essential. While Operation, Administration and Maintenance (OAM) capabilities have been introduced at an early stage to guarantee and manage Service Level Agreements (SLA), little emphasis was put initially on efficient Carrier Ethernet service testing at turn-up. Aligned with the requirements of service providers offering Carrier Ethernet services, the ITU-T Y.1564 test methodology enables complete validation of all SLA parameters in a single test cycle to facilitate simplified service turn-up testing and ensure optimized quality of service. Our presentation gives an overview on Carrier Ethernet performance assurance tools covering the entire service life-cycle and focuses specifically on the innovations introduce with ITU-T Y.1564. We outline the advantages of the new methodology, designed from the ground up as a stress test for Carrier Ethernet services and its role in a comprehensive suite of OAM capabilities required for offering MEF-based services.

100Gig in Metro Networks
As data usage continues to explode, a growing number of service providers have started to look at 40G/100Gig. Continued increases in low latency connections between data centers creates a growing pressure on port density on switch / routers. With 40G/100G ports appearing on the switch / routers this presentation looks at some of the issues around how they migrate from 10G and extending 40G/100Gig in Metro networks.

Tackling botnets on large networks, and the state of incident response
Janet CSIRT uses a combination of open source intelligence and netflow to track down and remove malware clients from their customer's networks. This is done with an open source tool chain and without the use of expensive propitiatory tool chain. The talk will look at some of the methods and sources of intelligence that we use, and some future ideas for extending these systems to react faster to new malware. If time allows I'll also continue to talk about the state of play in incident response within the UK, covering some recent activities and projects at that the wider community may not be aware of.

Best Current Operational Practices - Efforts from the Internet Society
There is an opportunity to better identify, capture, and promote best current operational practices documents emerging from various regional network operators' groups. We believe sharing these documents across the globe would benefit the wider Internet community and help more operators deploy new technologies like IPv6 and DNSSEC faster and easier. In addition, there is an opportunity to improve communications between the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standards making process and operators around the globe. We believe standards could be better designed and implemented if more operators that actually use them in their real-world networks agreed on what they need and provided more feedback into the RFC process within the IETF. In this presentation, Jan Zorz from the Internet Society Deploy360 Programme will discuss options on how to start answering three specific questions: - Would operators benefit from documenting the best current operational practices in different regions and globally? - What might be the best path forward to closing these communication gaps and creating such a document repositories? - Do you agree that there is a communication gap between the IETF and real-world network operators? Many operators need down-to-earth information on how to fix their current issues and how to implement new technologies coming out of the IETF. How can the Internet Society help facilitate this work?
