IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group Responds to Submitted Proposals

As part of its assessment of the proposals received concerning protocol parameters and numbers, the ICG has sent the following question to the IETF IANAPLAN working group and CRISP team:

“The IETF consensus as reflected in draft-ietf-ianaplan-icg-response [1] did not include a formal request to change the arrangements regarding the IANA trademark and the iana.org domain as a requirement of its transition proposal. But Section III.A.2 of the RIR proposal [2] says: “With regards to the IANAtrademark and the IANA.ORG domain, it is the expectation of the Internet Number Community that both are associated with the IANA Numbering Services and not with a particular IANA Numbering Services Operator. Identifying an organization that is not the IANA Numbering Services Operator and which will permanently hold these assets will facilitate a smooth transition should another operator (or operators) be selected in the future. It is the preference of the Internet Number Community that the IANA trademark and the IANA.ORG domain name be transferred to an entity independent of the IANA Numbering Services Operator, in order to ensure that these assets are used in a non-discriminatory manner for the benefit of the entire community. From the Internet Number Community’s perspective, the IETF Trust would be an acceptable candidate for this role.”
