TERENA Networking Conference 2000    

Session 8A

Internet Standardisation Update
Chair: Claudio Allocchio, GARR, Italy

We often hear the magic word "Internet Standard", sometimes to qualify a product or service, sometimes to validate a document. However, on many occasions this label is used inappropriately, and there is confusion both on the exact meaning and status of Internet Standardisation. More over, the debate between the Internet (IETF) Standardisation and the ITU / ISO Standardisation Process is still open.

This session and panel discussion will clarify the real situation, with a presentation of the up-to-date Internet Standardisation Status directly from the main actors, and giving the occasion to solve your doubts talking directly to the key people in the Application and Security fields.
