In 2018, the IETF began the transition to a new administrative structure, and updated its IETF Administrative Support Activity (IASA) to a new "IASA 2.0" structure [RFC 8711
]. Key IASA 2.0 changes have been specified in a series of documents, including changes to the IETF Trust [RFC 8714
], the rationale for it [RFC 8715
], a new defining document for the IETF Administration LLC [LLC-Agreement
] (informally called the "IETF LLC" or just "the LLC" in places in this document and elsewhere), and adjustments to the procedures for nominations and selections for relevant positions [RFC 8713
In addition to more substantive changes that are described in those and other documents, the IASA 2.0 structure changes several position titles and organizational relationships that are referenced in other documents. Rather than reissue those documents individually, this document provides a unified update to them.
This document updates RFCs 2028, 2418, 3005, 3710, 3929, 4633, and 6702 (citations in context below) to make those terminology and related changes. In addition, with the authorization of the IAB, it requests that the Informational RFC 3716
be made Historic (see Section 4
). The sections that follow identify the details of the relevant documents and the required changes.
