Line Break Image

The IETF Journal, an Internet Society publication, provides an easily understandable overview of what’s happening in the world of Internet standards, with a particular focus on the activities of the IETF Working Groups (WGs). Each issue highlights some of the hot issues being discussed in IETF meetings and on the IETF mailing lists.

We hope that this publication gives anyone with an interest in Internet standards an overview of the topics being debated by the IETF, and also helps facilitate participation in IETF activities for newcomers. The articles published in the IETF Journal are not intended to reflect the opinions or the position of the IETF or the Internet Society.

The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) is an organized activity of the Internet Society (ISOC).
