  • Time to update the Network Time Protocol

    The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is a foundational Internet standard that has provided clock synchronization between computer systems since the early 1980s. It was first standardized as RFC 958 in Sept 1984 with several revisions in the following years. Discussions have been ongoing in the NTP working group for a few years now about updating NTPv4 to NTPv5. This update is motivated by lessons learned, ongoing vulnerabilities, and emerging use cases.

          IETF Annual Report 2021

            9 Sep 2022

            The IETF Annual Report 2021 provides a summary of Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), Internet Architecture Board (IAB), Internet Research Task Force (IRTF), and RFC Editor community activities from last year.

            The report provides a high-level overview of activities across the IETF, IAB, and IRTF. It brings together in one place a wide range of information from 2021, including about working groups and research groups, meetings and other events, as well as information about document authoring and publication. The report also includes updates on the ongoing operational and financial support provided via the IETF LLC for the work of the IETF, IAB, IRTF, and RFC Editor.

            We encourage you to review the full report, which provides links to additional details. Of course, regular meetings of the IETF LLC Board of Directors and Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG) telechats are also open to observers, with agendas published in advance. Ongoing discussion of general topics related to the IETF community is always encouraged on the IETF-Discussion list, with IETF LLC administration issues discussed on the Admin-Discussion list.
