APNIC Roundtable: Demystifying the IANA Stewardship Transition - Where Are We Now?

Tagged: Workshops

Sunday, 18 January 2015
Location: South Pacific 2
Time: 15.30–17.00

Organized by:

In March 2014, the US Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) announced its intention to transition the stewardship of the IANA functions to the Internet community.

Discussion on how this transition will take place has captured the imaginations of many in the Internet community worldwide as an assembled Coordination Group of global experts now seeks to guide the development of a transition plan.

In some quarters, the transition has been branded as "handing over control of the Internet". But in reality, what exactly is being transferred, and what does this all mean?

This session will explore the IANA stewardship transition, from the basics of the IANA function and how it fits in with ICANN, to the implications for network operators, businesses, governments and Internet users, look forward to how the process is likely to progress, and answer your questions to demystify what can appear as a complex proposition.
