IETF Secretariat

CNRI established, but no longer hosts, the IETF Secretariat, which provides administrative, management and coordination services to facilitate the development and evolution of the Internet and its related standards. A principal activity of the Secretariat is to provide support services to the open, international community of researchers, programmers, vendors and others, collectively known as the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), who are concerned with the evolution of the Internet's architecture and the overall operation of the Internet.
