IETF Open Internet Standards

IETF Journal Volume 12, Issue 3 Now Online

The latest issue of the IETF Journal (Volume 12, Issue 3) is now available online:

Our cover article is a manifesto of why Internet-enabled businesses should care about the open standards and open source communities. We present the first two of a series of interviews with IETF leadership, in this case outgoing IETF chair Jari Arkko and his successor Alissa Cooper.

Also in this issue, you’ll learn about CodeStand, a new initiative that matches developers with coding projects related to IETF activity. We have several Working Group (ccamp, lwig, dhc) and BoF updates, a summary of the pre-IETF Hackathon, and an article about the Internet Society briefing panel on the topic: The I in IoT: Implications for a Global Open Internet. Our regular columns from the IETF, IAB, and IRTF chairs and coverage of the IAB technical plenary wrap up the issue.

You can read this issue online or download the full issue as a PDF. You can also keep up to date with the latest issue by subscribing to the IETF Journal as an email edition or have it delivered to your postal address in hardcopy.
