About the IETF
The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) is the leading Internet standards body. It develops open standards through open processes with one goal in mind: to make the Internet work better. A large open international community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers, the IETF focuses on the evolution of the Internet architecture and the smooth operation of the Internet. The Internet Architecture Board (IAB) and the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF) complement the work of the IETF by, respectively, providing long-range technical direction for Internet development and promoting research important to the Internet’s evolution.
Open standards are a cornerstone of the Internet. They are key to allowing devices, services, and applications to work together across a wide and dispersed network of networks. In addition to the standards themselves, the open processes and principles on which they are developed ensure the evolution of Internet technologies that meet the need of the growing number of devices and uses that empower people around the world.
The Internet Society supports the work of these groups through a variety of programs, and provides a corporate home for the IETF LLC, the administrative entity that supports the IETF, the IAB, and the IRTF. [ Learn more in RFC 8712 .]

The Energy Society Manifesto
The goal is a low fixed cost for all the clean energy we need., an abundance of clean energy will enable humanity to reach the next level of civilization., the transition away from dependency on fossil fuels will promote democracy and freedom for all., the internetification of energy distribution will enable true independence from old hierarchical power structures., the voluntary and fair exchange between equal and independent local energy actors will create a long-term stable energy solution., a system of many thousands of cooperating energy communities will deliver a more robust energy system., no new radical technical breakthroughs are needed., scaling and smart engineering with continuous improvement to core technology such as generation, storage and local distribution of energy in cooperating clusters will need to continue., new software standards that are fully open and vendor-neutral will have to be developed and integrated at scale., everyone who wants to help make the energy society a reality is welcome to join., program declaration, the energy society for the next level of civilization, at this time in history, an abundance of clean energy for a low fixed cost is possible., the energy society is the next level of civilization. an abundance of clean, low-cost energy will make it possible to create things that today are impossible:, it will be a platform to build upon. things we can’t even imagine today. just like the internet, it will unleash a new wave of human creativity., help rid us of our dependence on fossil fuels., undermine dictatorships fueled by oil and gas, and instead promote democracy and freedom., a much more resilient energy system, that can better handle the stress of natural disasters, war, terrorism and conflicts., the world will improve faster within the energy society., time for a new energy system, the hierarchical power distribution structures of today were designed in the era of the old telephone systems from the last century., it was a marvel of innovation and engineering, but created before we had computers, electronics and software., while telephone and electronic communication have been disrupted through “internetification”, the principles for conventional electric power grids are unchanged. , now, much-needed change will come through the energy society., the structure of change, a voluntary and fair exchange between equal and independent local energy communities is the key to a long-term stable energy solution. , energy communities are neighbors cooperating and creating local grids by connecting their homes, offices, factories and other buildings to each other. using storage, like batteries, they share energy with each other. neighbors also contribute with energy production to the local grid, from sources like wind and solar., energy communities are fundamental building blocks for production, storage and sharing. in the energy society many thousands of energy communities are connected to each other, and cooperate., the energy communities are the underpinning for a robust energy delivery system, to provide the resilience that should be a given foundation for a modern society. , the principles of internet architecture are the framework for how the exchange between energy communities is conducted., the technology needed is here, no technical breakthroughs are needed to create the energy society., through scaling, innovation and smart engineering the technologies will improve, become cheaper, better, more efficient and smarter, but no breakthroughs are required to create the energy society. , as with the internet, new software standards that are fully open and vendor-neutral will have to be developed and integrated at scale.energy communities are fundamental building blocks for production, storage and sharing. in the energy society many thousands of energy communities are connected to each other, and cooperate., the energy society is a forward movement this fundamental change will take time. the energy society will grow in parallel with existing traditional power structures – just like the internet, make the energy society come sooner a society is for everyone., all ideas, skills and viewpoints will be needed to build, maintain and evolve the energy society., just like the energy society this manifesto will evolve and expand..

We are the energy engineering task force (eetf), founded 8 february 2023, with the goal of developing an open standard, the energy protocol (ep)., we have taken on the responsibility to develop and maintain the technical standard that will enable the energy society vision to become a practical reality., we have already identified some key values that will guide our efforts, we want ep to be open, free and enable effective energy sharing., we believe that independent local energy networks with connected resources that both generate and store energy should be able to run with full autonomy but also be able to interact with other local energy networks and traditional energy grids., inspired by the internet architecture we believe that edge first is a good place to start building distributed and independent networks that can function as standalone but will benefit greatly from being interconnected with as many compatible networks as possible., to practically develop similar concept to peering, routing and bgp but for energy sharing will be some of our first priorities., this is the start on the technical journey to create practical standards that enable the "internetification" of energy distribution., our organisation, as with other great standard developing organisation, the energy engineering task force will offer free membership, only charge self-cost for meetings, and run a transparent process., as our goal is to enable "internetification" we, as the rest of the world, are full of admiration for the ietf and all they have done, thank you., as a small team starting on a long journey, we are humble as we take on this new task and we will of course try to make use of some of the successful concepts as "rcf" and "bof" even with some ietf experience with in the team, it will take some time to find our own way forward., it will take time and the road will have its challenges, but we are determined that the goal is not only possible but also a "good problem", hard but once resolved it will have real impact., we hope that you are interested in joining us in the co-creation of the next "great thing"..

Beginning in Fall 2017, the College of Engineering initiated faculty-led task forces to determine new ideas and strategies in six primary areas of importance. The overall objectives are to enhance the learning environment for the college's undergraduate and graduate students, as well as to support faculty development and research. Faculty members were selected based on their interest and expertise in these specific areas.
Information and reports from these groups have been added to the individual task force pages; access these by clicking the task force name or through the links in the table on the right. Faculty must be logged into the UNL website using My.UNL credentials, through the ‘Login’ link at the top of the webpage. All college faculty are encouraged to leave comments / feedback as ideas and strategies progress, through the comment forms available on each task force page.

What is the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)?
The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) is the body that defines standard operating internet protocols such as TCP/IP .
The IETF is an open standards organization supervised by the Internet Society's Internet Architecture Board ( IAB ). However, prior to 1993, the IETF was supported by the United States federal government.
IETF organizational structure
IETF members are volunteers, drawn from the Internet Society's individual and organization membership . Members form working groups and area directors appoint a chairperson (or co-chairs) to deal with a particular area discussed in IETF meetings.
Ultimately, the area directors, working groups and chairs form the Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG), which is responsible for creating internet standards expressed in the form of Requests for Comments ( RFCs ).
Decisions on a standards track are made by rough consensus instead of formal voting protocols.
As part of overseeing the work of the IETF, the IAB supervises the RFC editor and offers technical direction to ensure the smooth operation of the internet.
They are also responsible for the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF), an organization parallel to the IETF that focuses on long-term research on issues relevant to the evolution of the internet.
Additionally, the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority ( IANA ), an organization responsible for overseeing global IP address allocation, root zone management in the Domain Name System ( DNS ), autonomous system number allocation, and other Internet Protocol-related symbols and numbers, also works closely with the IETF.
Funding for IETF activities is provided by meeting dues, sponsors and proceeds provided by organizational membership to the Public Interest Registry.
IETF areas of focus
The common areas of focus for the IETF include:
- operations and management
- real-time applications
The internet standards process includes proposing specifications, developing standards based on agreed-upon specifications, coordinating independent testing and revising proposals based on testing results.
Before proposals become official standards, multiple interoperable implementations must be successful. In fact, protocols can be used in many different systems or as running code used to flesh out system architectures.
IETF notable projects
In addition to the IETF standards process, the group also coordinates a number of other activities.
One such example is hackathons hosted by the IETF which are geared toward improving the interoperability and quality of the internet.
Internet of things (IoT)
The IoT is a network of software, electronics and sensors that facilitate data exchange and communication for manufacturers, operators and their connected devices. Multiple IETF working groups have developed the internet governance standards that regulate the IoT.
The IETF also cooperates with a number of standards bodies that seek to regulate the internet and make it safer. Some examples include the International Standards Organization ( ISO ), the International Telecommunication Union ( ITU ) and the World Wide Web Consortium ( W3C ).

Task Force on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
About the Task Force on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
On September 29, 2020, the Council unanimously approved the creation of a community-based Task Force on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (Task Force). The Task Force is charged with identifying key issues facing the City involving historically disenfranchised communities and making recommendations to policies that help the City achieve racial equity.
Through a series of community listening sessions, the Task Force gathered input on what the City of Santa Clara can do to build a more inclusive community and invites you to share your experiences and ideas. The feedback will help ensure that the voices of marginalized communities are the central focus of the Task Force’s considerations in developing policy and strategy recommendations. At the community listening sessions, the Task Force asked questions on how the City of Santa Clara can build a more inclusive community. What experiences and ideas do you have that your City leadership and elected officials should know when making decisions?
The Task Force has set up multiple ways to engage with the community on key topics facing many communities today.
As of 2022, the Task Force on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is currently on hiatus and not meeting regularly .
The Task Force’s meeting schedule, agendas, minutes, and recordings are accessible online on the City’s website here . To contact the Task Force, please email [email protected] .
Overseen by the Mayor and Police Chief, the seven-person Task Force will work with an advisory board made up of community partners to lead the effort in engaging the local community in an open dialogue that will help the City take actions to achieve racial equity.
The Task Force is charged with:
- Review police use of force policies
- Engage our community in the discussion
- Report our findings and seek feedback from our community
- Redefine public safety and reform any policies necessary
- Helping the City with engaging Santa Clara’s diverse community on equity issues
- Making recommendations based on community input for changes in government policies, structures, services and culture to positively affect historically disenfranchised communities
Mission Statement and General Governance
"In response to the national call for police use of force reform, the City of Santa Clara created the Task Force on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Through an open dialogue with the communities of Santa Clara and directed by community input, the Task Force shall make recommendations for changes in government policies, structures, services, and culture that negatively impact or do not fully benefit historically disenfranchised communities. The Task Force will continuously involve the communities on recommendations and progress."

Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)
Fostering continual improvement of the internet, their story, the ietf fosters continual improvement of the internet.
Famous theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking said of the creation of the Internet: “We are now all connected, like neurons in a giant brain,” a statement that grows truer with each passing year. Because it connects us—to information, services, entertainment, people around the world—the “giant brain” needs rules to run smoothly. That’s where the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) comes in. This vast community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers from all around the world works to define and evolve the Internet standards that ensure its smooth operation. It’s the brain trust for the giant brain. Officially founded in 1986, the work of setting Internet standards actually stretches back to the 1970s, before the public was even aware of the Internet.
So, how does the IETF make it work better? “The IETF creates documents that provide common technical approaches for core parts of the Internet.” says Lars Eggert, IETF Chair. For example, a bunch of the technical specifications created by the IETF define how the Domain Name System [DNS] itself works, including .ORG.” IETF specifications are voluntarily adopted and implemented by network operators, software developers, and equipment manufacturers so that the billions of elements that make up the Internet can seamlessly communicate and work with each other.
But more important is how the specifications are created. The IETF creates a forum founded on principles of open access, technical competence, volunteerism, rough consensus and running code, and protocol ownership. Some of these principles may be challenging for the layperson to understand, but Eggert explains, “The IETF is open for anyone to participate in, and its output is freely available for anyone to use.” By bringing together a community to work toward a common good, in this case making the Internet work better for people all around the world, the IETF’s mission is similar to the overall mission of .ORG as a whole.
The work of the IETF is done completely by its all-volunteer working groups, comprising about 7000 individuals. “Everyone who participates in the IETF participates as an individual—all you need to participate is Internet access and an enthusiasm to collaborate,” says Eggert. Any idea can be brought to the IETF to be openly discussed and determined if it’s technically sound. Every significant technical issue needs to be addressed before a proposal can be published. In part because of the open process by which they are created, IETF standards are known for their technical excellence.
Of course, the ideas developed and deployed by the working groups don’t always work as expected as the Internet evolves. That’s why there’s a mechanism to report back so existing standards can be rethought and improved. DNS is a great example of that. “While the origins of the Domain Name System, including .ORG, predate the IETF, it exists because the previous way of assigning names to Internet addresses didn’t scale as the Internet continued to grow. The IETF continues to develop technologies and operational guidance to make the Internet continue to work better even as it continues to grow and change,” says Eggert.
One way the IETF is able to connect various technical threads across the many and varied issues connected with Internet technology is by gathering its 120 working groups into areas , such as Applications and Real-Time Area (ART) or Security Area (SEC). That way, there are dedicated volunteers working on specific types of problems, and at the same time the implications of related technical discussions are factored into standards. For example, Internet security has been an important area of work across every IETF area in recent years. “There has been a very big push to make it easier for users to maintain control over their information by updating protocols that are already widely used and building better privacy into new protocols,” says Eggert.
Maintaining the highest standards the IETF way is what helps the Internet operate even in times of great, worldwide challenge, such as the pandemic. “There has been an amazing amount of work by everyone who operates the networks that make up the global Internet, but the underlying technology has proven to be remarkably resilient. Some networks reported a 30% increase in Internet use in the matter of weeks when the COVID-19 pandemic began. Video conferencing providers and cloud computing were in high demand. The Internet didn’t collapse – it mostly continued to work pretty well, even under this unpredictable spike in demand” says Eggert.
The IETF is an excellent example of the many diverse mission-based organizations that use the .ORG domain. Mission-based doesn’t just mean serving a local community or helping a vulnerable population, both of which are necessary and integral to improving our world. In the case of the IETF, it means supporting a global community through the passionate pursuit of technical excellence. Many .ORGs in the technical space, including IETF, are really important to how the entire Internet works.
The IETF is funded by the support of individual participants, organizational sponsors, and through the IETF Endowment , which includes significant contributions from the Internet Society and other organizations. You can learn more on the IETF website .
FRIEDMAN’S ‘ZERO TRAFFIC FATALITIES TASK FORCE’ REPORT LAUNCHES SAFE STREETS LEGISLATION
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 7, 2020
Contact: Blake Dellinger
SACRAMENTO – This week, the findings of the ‘Zero Traffic Fatalities Task Force’ were released in a report by the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA). The task force was created by Assembly Bill 2363, legislation authored by Assemblymember Laura Friedman (D-Glendale) in 2018. The task force was charged with exploring ways to reduce traffic-related injuries, fatalities, and speed across the state.
“It is gratifying to see my work in the legislature put into action,” said Assemblymember Friedman. “We all want the streets and roads we use every day to be safer, and yet for decades, our efforts to improve safety and reduce traffic-related fatalities have been hampered by antiquated rules at the state level. With this report, we have a roadmap drafted by experts to guide us towards safer streets in every community.”
Starting in June of 2019, the task force began reviewing California’s current methodology for setting speed limits, existing speed reduction policies, engineering recommendations to increase safety, existing reports and data, as well as the impact that bicycle and pedestrian usage have on traffic safety.
Members of the task force included representatives from the California Highway Patrol, Department of Transportation, Department of Public Health, academic institutions, local governments, bicycle safety organizations, road safety organizations, and labor organizations.
“San Jose appreciates the leadership of Assemblymember Friedman in the creation of the task force, and CalSTA’s report that highlights a direct connection between vehicle speed and the severity of injuries and death on our roadways,” said Laura Wells, Assistant Director of the City of San Jose Transportation Department and a member of the task force. “San Jose’s experience demonstrates this connection, and we hope to quickly move toward new policies that allow us to set safe speeds and to use proven technology to combat traffic violence.”
According to the task force report, nearly 3,600 people die each year in traffic crashes in California and more than 13,000 people are severely injured. In the City of Glendale alone in 2017, 755 individuals were either killed or injured in crashes according to the Office of Traffic Safety, with speed a factor in 109 cases.
The report is the first step taken in decades towards reforming the way California regulates vehicular speeds. The methodology used by California and many other states was developed in the late 1930s and uses traffic surveys to calculate the speed at which 85% of vehicles travel on a given road to set the speed limit for that roadway, with limited flexibility for communities to adjust for road conditions, pedestrians, bicyclists, or other non-vehicular traffic.
"The current rules create a vicious cycle where speed limits increase because drivers are speeding. It would be like increasing a person’s daily-recommended calories because their neighbors overeat. Cities like Los Angeles need the flexibility to set speed limits that fit,” said Seleta Reynolds, General Manager of the Los Angeles Department of Transportation. “We were grateful for the opportunity to participate in this groundbreaking work and look forward to championing these recommendations that, if implemented, will save lives."
In response to the task force’s findings, Assemblymember Friedman has introduced Assembly Bill 2121, legislation that would put many of their recommendations into law. With the bill, Friedman aims to create a pathway for California’s cities to promote safer travel and work to reduce traffic collisions.
AB 2121 provides greater flexibility to local governments when calculating speed limits along a section of roadway if there is found to be an uptick in traffic-related crashes. In addition, the bill creates a statewide traffic safety monitoring program to identify locations with pedestrian- and bicyclist-related crashes, and requires the Department of Transportation to convene a committee of external design experts to advise the Department on revisions to the Highway Design Manual.
“Fatal and severe crashes are a public health crisis,” said Assemblymember Friedman. “We know that speed can be a major factor in traffic fatalities, and it’s time that we bring traffic safety into the 21st Century and give communities the power to respond with proven tools to improve safety for everyone.”
“The way we move around has changed over the years and continues to evolve even today. It’s time to empower local leaders with the ability to improve road safety based on today’s conditions. This flexibility will help save lives and reduce the number injuries,” said Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-San Francisco), joint author of AB 2121.
AB 2121 will face its first test in Assembly in April.
Laura Friedman represents the 43rd Assembly District which encompasses the cities of Burbank, Glendale, and La Cañada Flintridge, as well as the communities of La Crescenta and Montrose, and the Los Angeles neighborhoods of Atwater Village, Beachwood Canyon, Los Feliz, East Hollywood, Franklin Hills, and Silver Lake.

NAVFAC Pacific Awards $2.8-Billion Contract Task Order for Pearl Harbor Dry Dock Replacement
By William Couch
Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) Pacific awarded a $2.8-billion task order under a previously-awarded indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity multiple-award construction contract to Dragados/Hawaiian Dredging/Orion JV, based in Honolulu, Hawaii, to replace Dry Dock 3 at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility (PHNSY & IMF) March 10. The planned five-year project will construct a graving dock, to be designated Dry Dock 5, in order to support PHNSY’s ability to continue serving the Navy decades into the future by maintaining and modernizing the U.S. Pacific Fleet’s nuclear-powered submarines. “As part of the Navy’s Shipyard Infrastructure Optimization Program (SIOP), replacing Dry Dock 3 at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard is a critical enabler of increased naval capability,” said Pete Lynch, program executive officer for Industrial Infrastructure, who oversees SIOP. “This project is a key investment in increasing capacity and modernizing our nation’s public shipyards through upgraded dry docks and facilities, new equipment, and improved workflow.” Dry Dock 3 at PHNSY & IMF will become functionally obsolete once the Navy’s Los Angeles-class submarines are no longer in service. The dry dock, built in 1942, cannot service Virginia-class submarines or larger surface ships. “We look forward to working with Dragados/Hawaiian Dredging/Orion JV, Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard, and all our stakeholders on this project over the next several years in order to deliver this critical capability to the Fleet,” said Capt. Steve Padhi, commanding officer of Officer in Charge of Construction (OICC) Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. “The project team and cooperating agencies have gone above and beyond to set the conditions for success. We have incorporated lessons learned and best practices from other dry dock projects and field offices across the Navy, and we have consulted with our construction contractors early in order to confidently meet the requirements we’ve been given. My OICC team and I are ready to get started on this historic effort.” The Navy is investing heavily in shipyard infrastructure for nuclear-powered warships. The Navy established SIOP to increase throughput at the four public shipyards by updating their physical layout, upgrading and modernizing their dry docks, and replacing antiquated capital equipment with modern tools and technologies. SIOP is a holistic investment plan that when fully executed will deliver required dry dock repairs and upgrades to support current and planned future classes of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers and submarines, optimize workflow within the shipyards through significant changes to their physical layout, and recapitalize industrial plant equipment with modern technology that will substantially increase productivity and safety.
