Internet Engineering Task ForceInternet standards. It is an open, all-volunteer organization, with no formal membership nor membership requirements.
It is organized into a large number of working groups, each dealing with a specific topic; each working group has an appointed chair (or sometimes several co-chairs). The working groups are organized into areas by subject matter; each area is overseen by an area director (AD) (sometimes an area can have co-AD's); the AD's appoint working group chairs. The area directors, together with the IETF Chair, form the Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG), who are responsible for the overall operation of the IETF.
The current chairman of the IETF is Harald Tveit Alvestrand.
