MoU text as signed

MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING CONCERNING THE TECHNICAL WORK OF THE INTERNET ASSIGNED NUMBERS AUTHORITY

1. This Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") defines an agreement between the Internet Engineering Task Force and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. Its intent is exclusively to define the technical work to be carried out by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority on behalf of the Internet Engineering Task Force and the Internet Research Task Force. It is recognized that ICANN may, through the IANA, provide similar services to other organisations with respect to protocols not within IETF’s scope (i.e. registries not created by IETF or IRTF action); nothing in this MOU limits ICANN’s ability to do so.
