I wanted to share some thoughts on how I see IANA, its role and evolution. This is mostly from an IETF perspective, but it also touches on the role of IANA for addresses and domain names.


As pointed out by the article, the IAB and its IANA evolution team is working on a framework document that talks about the overall model, and the separation of oversight from policy and implementation. An early draft is here:


I know that the IAB and Olaf Kolkman would appreciate feedback, from both within the IETF and other parts of the ecosystem. They are soliciting feedback to the IAB internetgovtech list (http://www.iab.org/mailman/listinfo/internetgovtech) but we do of course take input from all directions we can get.
