The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) is a large open international community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers concerned with the evolution of the Internet architecture and the smooth operation of the Internet. It is open to any interested individual. The mission of the IETF is to produce high quality, relevant technical and engineering documents that influence the way peopledesign, use, and manage the Internet in such a way as to make the Internet work better. These documents include protocol standards,best current practices, and informational documents of various kinds.The actual technical work of the IETF is done in its working groups based on topics of several areas such as routing, transport, security, etc.

The IETF working groups are grouped into areas, and managed by Area Directors. The Area Directors are members of the Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG). Internet Architecture Board, (IAB) provides architectural oversight. The IAB also adjudicates appeals when someone complains that the IESG has failed. The IAB and IESG are chartered by the Internet Society (ISOC) for these purposes. The General Area Director also serves as the chair of the IESG and of the IETF, and is an ex-officio member of the IAB.

The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) is the central coordinator for the assignment of unique parameter values for Internet protocols. The IANA is chartered by the Internet Society (ISOC) to act as the clearinghouse to assign and coordinate the use of numerous Internet protocol parameters.In practice, the Internet standard process is more complicated, due to (i) the difficulty of creating specifications of high technical quality; (ii) the need to consider the interests of all of the affected parties; (iii) the importance of establishing widespread community consensus; and (iv) the difficulty of evaluating the utility of a particular specification for the Internet community.

The goals of the Internet standards process are:

  • technical excellence;
  • prior implementation and testing;
  • clear, concise, and easily understood documentation;
  • openness and fairness; and
  • timeliness.
