Charter of the Internet Architecture Board (IAB)

Status of this Memo

This memo provides information for the Internet community. This memo

does not specify an Internet standard of any kind. Distribution of

this memo is unlimited.

Abstract

This memo documents the composition, selection, roles, and

organization of the Internet Architecture Board and its subsidiary

organizations.

1. IAB Membership

The Internet Architecture Board (IAB) shall consist of 13 voting

members, composed of the IETF chair and 12 full members. The IETF

chair, who is also the chair of the IESG, may vote on all official

IAB actions except the approval of IESG members. Ex-officio members

and a liaison from the IESG may also attend IAB meetings but shall

have no vote on official actions.

Voting IAB members shall serve for a term of two years, but may serve

any number of terms.

Members of the IAB shall serve as individuals, and not as

representatives of any company, agency, or other organization.

1.1 Selection of voting IAB members

Voting IAB members shall be nominated by the nominating committee

of the IETF and appointed by an appropriate group. The 12 full

members shall be approved by vote of the Board of Trustees of the

Internet Society (ISOC), while the IETF chair shall be approved by

vote of the 12 full IAB members then sitting. Normally, six new

full members are nominated each year.

The IETF nomination committee is formed every year and consists of

a non-voting chair designated by the Internet Society and seven

members picked at random from a pool of volunteers. Any person

who took part in two IETF meetings in the last two years may

volunteer for this pool. The nomination committee also includes

four non-voting liaison members, one designated by each of the

Board of Trustees of the Internet Society, the IAB, the IESG, and

the IRSG.

New IAB members shall be selected each year to replace those whose

terms have eXPired or been vacated. The nomination committee

shall prepare a list containing at least one candidate for each

open position, and present this list to the ISOC Board of

Trustees. The Board of Trustees will by a vote appoint IAB

members from the list of nominees to fill the open positions.

There is no limit to the number of terms that a member of the IAB

may serve. A member that wishes to be re-nominated at the end of

a term simply notifies the nomination committee. However, there

is no obligation for renomination.

1.2 Ex-Officio Members

The IRSG chair and the RFCEditor shall be Ex-officio members of

the IAB, with no vote in official actions. An ex-officio position

may be held by a voting member.

2. The Role of the IAB:

The IAB was chartered as a component of the Internet Society in June

of 1992. Its responsibilities under this charter include:

(a) IESG Selection

The IAB appoints a new IETF chair and all other IESG candidates,

from a list provided by the IETF nominating committee.

(b) Architectural Oversight

The IAB provides oversight of the architecture for the protocols

and procedures used by the Internet.

(c) Standards Process Oversight and Appeal

The IAB provides oversight of the process used to create Internet

Standards.

The IAB serves as an appeal board for complaints of improper

execution of the standards process.

(d) RFCSeries and IANA

The IAB is responsible for editorial management and publication of

the Request for Comments (RFC) document series, and for

administration of the various Internet assigned numbers.

(e) External Liaison

The IAB acts as representative of the interests of the Internet

Society in liaison relationships with other organizations

concerned with standards and other technical and organizational

issues relevant to the world-wide Internet.

(f) Advice to ISOC

The IAB acts as a source of advice and guidance to the Board of

Trustees and Officers of the Internet Society concerning

technical, architectural, procedural, and (where appropriate)

policy matters pertaining to the Internet and its enabling

technologies.

The following is an expanded discussion of these IAB functions.

2.1 IESG Selection

Members of the IESG are nominated for a period of two years by the

IETF nomination committee, and are appointed by approval from the

IAB. The committee shall select at least one nominee for each

vacant IESG position, i.e., chair of the IESG or chair of a

specific area. The nomination committee may present several

candidates for an available position, in which case the IAB will

select one of the nominees for that position.

The nominating committee shall present the IESG nomination list to

the IAB for approval. Within two weeks of receiving the list, the

IAB shall approve or disapprove of the nominations, by voting

among the full members of the IAB. At least 8 affirmative votes,

and no more than one negative vote, are required to approve an

IESG appointment.

Should the IAB fail to approve a particular nomination, the

nomination committee shall present a new nomination for that

position. Should this process fail to converge rapidly, the

sitting IESG is permitted to make a temporary appointment to one

of their own positions whenever there is no IAB-selected person

with an unexpired term filling that slot.

2.2 Architectural oversight

A major role of the IAB is long range planning. The IAB is

expected to "pay attention" to important long-term issues in the

Internet, and to make sure that these issues are brought to the

attention of the group(s) that are in a position to address them.

It is also expected to play a role in assuring that the people

responsible for evolving the Internet and its technology are aware

of the essential elements of the Internet architecture.

When a new IETF working group is proposed, the IESG will forward a

preliminary version of the charter to the IAB for review of

architectural consistency and integrity. The IAB shall review

these proposed charters and give feedback to the IESG as

appropriate.

Pursuant to the architectural oversight function, the IAB sponsors

and organizes the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF).

On occasion, the IAB will convene panels to perform in-depth

reviews of particular architectural issue. SUCh reviews may

include consideration of relevant IETF Working Group activities,

and for this purpose the panel may invite presentations by

qualified parties on the design goals and decisions, technology

choices, and other pertinent ASPects of these IETF activities.

The results of such a review will be a report which may give

advice to the community and the IESG.

The IAB may organize ad hoc bodies of independent technical

experts to adjudicate technical disputes.

2.3 Standards Process Oversight and Appeal

The development, review, and approval of Internet Standards is the

responsibility of the Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG)

of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). The standards

process executed by the IESG is established and documented by the

IAB, in consultation with the IESG and with the concurrence of the

IETF.

2.4 RFCSeries and Assigned Numbers

The RFCseries constitutes the archival publication channel for

Internet Standards and for other contributions by the Internet

research and engineering community. The IAB shall select an RFC

Editor, who shall be responsible for the editorial management and

publication of the RFCseries.

The IAB shall also designate an Internet Assigned Numbers

Authority (IANA) to administer the assignment of Internet protocol

numbers.

2.5 External Liaison

The IAB is responsible for relationships between the Internet

technical groups working under the auspices of ISOC and other

interested parties such as the US Federal Networking Council

(FNC); various organs of the European Commission (EC); the

Coordinating Committee for Intercontinental Research Networking

(CCIRN); standards bodies such as the International Organization

for Standardization (ISO), the International Electrotechnical

Commission (IEC), and the International Telecommunication Union

(ITU); and other professional societies such as the Institute of

Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and the Association for

Computing Machinery (ACM).

2.6 Advice to ISOC

The IAB may convene panels of knowledgeable people, hold hearings,

and otherwise pursue the investigation of specific questions or

topics presented to it by the Internet Society.

3. IAB Organization

3.1 IAB chair

The members of the IAB shall select one of its full members to

serve as the chair of the IAB, with all of the duties and

responsibilities normally associated with such a position. The

term of the IAB chair shall be one year, with no restriction on

renewal. The chair of the IAB may be removed at any time by the

affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members of the IAB, or as a

result of his or her departure from the IAB.

The chair of the IAB shall have the authority to organize the IAB.

3.2 Executive Director

The chair of the IAB hall have the authority to appoint or remove

an Executive Director (ExecD). The ExecD shall administer the

internal operation of the IAB, e.g., organization of conferences

and meetings and reporting of their results.

The ExecD may be chosen among the full IAB members with voting

rights; otherwise, the ExecD shall be an ex-officio non-voting

member.

3.3 Selection of the IRSG chair

The chair of the IAB shall have the authority to appoint or remove

the chair of the Internet Research Steering Group (IRSG). The

IRSG chair shall be responsible for the management and

organization of the IRSG.

The IRSG chair may be chosen among the full IAB member with voting

rights; otherwise, the IRSG chair shall be an ex-officio non-
