      NTIA Assessment of the IANA Stewardship Transition Proposal

      9 Jun 2016

      Today the US Department of Commerce National Telecommunications & Information Administration (NTIA) announced that the Internet community’s proposal to transition the stewardship of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions meets the criteria it set out for the process.

      This is good news and an important milestone. It is also another indication of the strength of the IANA system and the multistakeholder community caring about it, and one more step to ensure the long term health of a free and open Internet.

      The transition plan has been developed in the community. One part of the plan, the one dealing with protocol parameters (such as port numbers) came from the IETF and its IANAPLAN working group. NTIA’s assessment of the protocol parameters part can be found here.

      The implementation efforts related to the plan are ongoing. As always, the Internet community needs to take care of the IANA system on a continuous basis. And we will — together, in a multistakeholder fashion.
