Internet Engineering Task Force

L’Internet Engineering Task Force est un groupe international, ouvert à tout individu, qui participe à l'élaboration de standards pour Internet. L'IETF produit la plupart des nouveaux standards d'Internet.

L'IETF regroupe des ingénieurs et chercheurs du monde entier. Ils sont chargés de faire évoluer les standards de communication en prônant le consensus et la démonstration de solutions opérationnelles. Par ailleurs, elle organise le rassemblement annuel des internautes.

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 IETF Mission Statement is documented in RFC 3935.

The IETF working groups are grouped into areas, and managed by Area Directors, or ADs. The ADs are members of the Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG). Providing architectural oversight is the Internet Architecture Board (IAB). 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.
