Our next call will be on 14 May 2015 at the usual time.

Welcome to our new PING members!

We had planned to have a call earlier this year without a formal agenda,
intended to focus on current privacy issues of general concern to PING members.
The opportunity to do so finally arose in our April call, which was
therefore structured a little differently from usual.

Rigo Wenning mentioned the upcoming Global Conference on CyberSpace 2015
[1], and also gave a short summary of legal discussions in France over data
retention, in which the possible benefits of such initiatives as Big Data
analytics need to be weighed against privacy concerns. Rigo also mentioned
he recently gave a talk in Frankfurt about networked cars and the
associated security and privacy concerns, noting that there is an
Automotive and Web Platform Business Group within the W3C [2].

Nick Doty announced that UC Berkeley has received grant funding for The
Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity (CLTC) [3].

The topic of header enrichment was raised, as PING has been trying to
coordinate discussions on this subject. Nick has collected a series of
relevant documents about header enrichment and the privacy issues of
embedding identifiers into traffic [4].
PING is planning to coordinate a meeting with the IETF HTTP WG chair (Mark
Nottingham). Given sufficient interest, we may issue a statement from PING on
this topic.

Note that we are planning to hold a face-to-face meeting at the next
Technical Plenary (TPAC), given the success of our previous such meeting in
Santa Clara. TPAC 2015 will take place in Sapporo, Japan, 26-30 October
(the week before IETF 94 in Yokohama) [5].

Kepeng Li asked about the possibility of moving the PING call to a time
that would be less inconvenient for participants located in Asia. We have
not yet found a solution, given our difficult geographic constraints, but
are actively seeking suggestions for a workable compromise.
