Internet Standards: The IETF Process
Speaker: Benno Overeinder
The presentation is about the IETF standardization organization, its objectives, the process and the organization. How are internet standards established, what are the steps to get from an idea, via the IETF process, to a document that describes an internet protocol? The resulting documents must be so complete that different implementations of the protocol are interoperable.
Benno Overeinder is managing director of NLnet Labs, an R&D organisation that contributes to open standards for an open Internet. His interests are the fundamental building blocks of the Internet, in particular the DNS and the inter-domain routing infrastructure, and its security and stability.
