++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ SEC OFFICIAL EMAIL BALLOT 802.0/20Apr2001 Issue Date: 9Apr2001Closing Date: 23Apri2001 Moved By: Stuart Kerry Seconded By: Bob Heile Move: Approve Split of 802.11e PARs into 802.11e and 802.11i. Notes: At the Thursday SEC meeting, we made the following motion: Motion to conduct a 14 day SEC email ballot to decide whether to: forward 802.11e PAR to NesCom forward 802.11i PAR to NesCom forward covering letter regarding 802.11e and 802.11i to NesCom. 15 Kerry/Heile 8/0/2 Approved The two PARs and Five Criterion are attached below. Reason For PAR Split: The IEEE 802.11 Task Group e PAR covers two broad items, enhancements to 802.11 security and enhancements to 802.11 Quality of Service (QOS). Therefore, it is proposed to split this effort into: 802.11e Enhancements to IEEE 802.11 Quality of Service and 802.11i Enhancements to IEEE 802.11 Security. This will allow the work to progress independently and get done at an increased schedule. The increased schedule is needed based on market needs for improved security. The market need arrived from publicized weakness to the currently defined security, defined in 802.11.
