Carl Malamud interviews Christian Huitema, the new chair of
the Internet Architecture Board. The interview was conducted at
the Columbus, Ohio IETF meeting in March. Huitema, prior to taking
on his bureaucratic burden, was chair of the SIP working group. SIP
is one of the strong participants in the race to become the next
generation of IP. Huitema talks about the importance of simplicity
in protocol design and gives a unique perspective on issues such as
policy routing, resource reservation, and other key considerations at
the network layer.
