IETF Liaison Activities

IETF Liaison Activities

Liaison Statements

The IETF has a limited number of liaison relationships with other organizations. Liaisons are appointed by the IAB when the IAB feels that conditions warrent appointing a specific person to such a task.

Note that such appointments are rare as the best way for organizations to work with the IETF is to do so within the working groups. The primary contact on liaison negotiation is the IAB.

The list of liaisons appears below:

ITU-T SG and WP Liaisons

The agreement for ITU-IETF interworking (RFC 2436) does not require designated representatives to conduct regular business; most interactions occur directly at the WG (or WP) level). Representatives are designated for specific ITU-T-related meetings when that seems appropriate, but only for one meeting or sequence of meetings.

Current and recent representatives are:

SG2 WP1/2 meeting, Berlin, October 2000: Patrik Faltstrom and Richard Shockey
SG11 Meeting, September 9-13, 2002: Allison Mankin and Jon Peterson
