RCM TIG is an initiative within the IEEE 802.11 working group that will consider the merits and challenges presented by randomized and changing MAC addresses within an 802.11-based network, with particular considerations to already existing or upcoming deployments of such randomized and changing MAC addresses, including in non-802.11-based networks. The initiative started in the May 2019 meeting. RCM TIG documents can be found at the RCM TIG mentor.
The TIG will consider at privacy and other aspects of how randomized and changing MAC addresses are currently used in different networking standards, and assess whether any recommendations are needed for network operators or changes are required to the IEEE 802.11 standard as per the TIGs assesssment, bearing in mind changes that were introduced to the 802.11 standard following amendment .11aq.

The Randomized and changing MAC address TIG met for the first time in Atlanta, Georga, on May 13-17, 2019.
The RCM TIG met two times during this week.
The group reviewed four submissions, including 11-19-0179-02-0arc (not available on RCM TIG mentor). Mark Hamilton (Ruckus/ARRIS) was appointed vice-chair.
