Dear colleagues,

Today I was invited to appear before the United States Senate
Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation at the hearing on
“Examining the Multistakeholder Plan for Transitioning the Internet
Assigned Number Authority.”  I spoke in my role as IAB Chair.  Still,
I should emphasise that my remarks are not a consensus position of the
IAB, so if you think I said something boneheaded, blame me and not the
IAB as a whole.

My submitted tesimony is available on the IAB site at

Video of the hearing is archived at

The transition of IANA stewardship is still proceeding.  If you want
to follow more, I suggest discussing it on the IANAPLAN WG list, ianaplan@ietf.org.

Best regards,


IAB Chair (Andrew Sullivan)
