Hmm. I found the slides from SIGCOMM 2019 quite easily, but not the papers. What's the link to the Trotsky paper, for example? (I got my copy by a rather indirect route.) It's also annoyingly hard to find CCR papers in general.

Yes, I think people (especially those fussing about the pending PIR sale) do often forget that IETF and IRTF stuff, and RFCs, are freely available only because ISOC found a money tree. The same now applies to this list.
