Welcome to the first issue of the IETF Journal!

Our aim is to provide an overview of what ‘s happening in the world of Internet standards with a particular focus on the activities of the IETF Working Groups (WG). While we won’t be able to provide in-depth coverage of every WG, each issue of the IETF Journal will highlight some of the hot issues being discussed in IETF meetings and in the IETF mailing lists. We’ll publish three issues per year (following each of the IETF meetings).

The bulk of this issue (which was produced in cooperation with the IETF Edu Team) takes a look back at what happened during the recent 63rd meeting of the IETF in Paris. We hope that this publication will give anyone with an interest in Internet standards an opportunity to keep abreast of many of the topics being debated by the IETF, and also facilitate participation in IETF activities for newcomers.

We encourage you to provide feedback on this first issue and to let us know what you’d like to see in future issues. Your suggestions for themes or topics for future articles are most welcome. We’re looking forward to hearing from you. You can contact us at: [email protected].
