In March of 2014, the U.S. National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) announced its intent to transition oversight of Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions [NTIA-Announce]. In that announcement, NTIA asked the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to establish a process to deliver a proposal for transition. As part of that process, the IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG) was formed. The charter for the ICG can be found in Appendix A. The ICG in turn solicited proposals regarding post-transition arrangements from the names, numbers, and protocol parameters communities in order to put forth a proposal to the NTIA. The final request for proposal (RFP) can be found in Appendix B. The response from the ICG to the NTIA may be found at [ICG-Response].

   Response to the IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG)     Request for Proposals on the IANA Protocol Parameters Registries


   The U.S. National Telecommunications and Information Administration    (NTIA) solicited a request from the Internet Corporation for Assigned    Names and Numbers (ICANN) to propose how the NTIA should end its    oversight of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA)    functions.  After broad consultations, ICANN in turn created the IANA    Stewardship Transition Coordination Group.  That group solicited    proposals for the three major IANA functions: names, numbers, and    protocol parameters.  This document contains the IETF response to    that solicitation for protocol parameters.  It was included in an    aggregate response to the NTIA alongside those for names and    numbering resources that are being developed by their respective    operational communities.  A reference to that response may be found    in the introduction, and additional correspondence is included in the    Appendix.
