By Mat FordTechnology Program Manager

The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) is the pre-eminent global standards organisation for Internet technologies and it will be meeting all next week in Orlando, Florida. Prior to each IETF meeting, three times a year, we put together a guide to the sessions most relevant to our programmatic work. At this IETF meeting we are focussing on the following broad categories of work:

  • Trust technologies
  • Authentication/Authorization
  • Infrastructure/Support
  • IPv6
  • Bandwidth

Check out the Internet Society’s Rough Guide to Hot Topics at IETF86 for details of these work areas and pointers to other agenda highlights that are sure to make this another great meeting and another milestone in the development of the Internet.
