The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority in Transition (15 December 2014)
The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) has been responsible for making and publishing the assignments of Internet names and numbers, including DNS domain names and Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, for more than 40 years. The IANA functions are currently performed by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) under a set of agreements that includes a contract with the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) of the U.S. Department of Commerce.

On 14 March 2014, NTIA announced that it intended to end its oversight of the IANA functions, and asked ICANN to launch a multistakeholder effort to propose a non-governmental alternative. As part of that effort, ICANN's Security and Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC) has prepared and published a set of three Advisories: SAC067, "Overview and History of the IANA Functions"; SAC068, "Report on the IANA Functions Contract"; and SAC069, "Maintaining the Security and Stability of the IANA Functions Through the Stewardship Transition." Interisle partner and SSAC member Lyman Chapin co-authored all three Advisories.

Interisle Prepares for OECD Ministerial

The Internet Society coordinates the Internet Technical Advisory Committee (ITAC) for the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). In preparation for the OECD Ministerial meeting in Mexico City in 2016, Interisle partner Lyman Chapin writes in the latest ITAC newsletter about The Open Internet, and why it is "more than just a good idea." We've all used the term Open Internet so often, in so many different contexts, that we tend to assume that everyone knows what it means—and that it means the same thing to everyone. But some people think that having an "open Internet" is the same as having "network neutrality," and others think that an "open Internet" is simply an anarchy in which the rule of law and other norms of human behavior don't apply. Neither viewpoint captures the essential properties of openness that make the Internet such a uniquely valuable platform for social and economic growth.

Both drew upon Interisle's experiences managing PSnet for the Metro Boston Homeland Security Region.

Interisle looks forward to working with more members of the Wireless ISP community in the future.
